At E3, CCP Games announced that its next VR title, Sparc, would come out first on PlayStation VR as a timed exclusive. Now we know that the game is scheduled to release on PSVR on August 29.


If you own PSVR, you can pre-order the game today for $30. (PlayStation Plus subscribers will get a 20% discount if the game is pre-ordered through the PlayStation Store.) Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners are bound to get the game at some point in the future, although a release date for Sparc on either platform is not yet available.

Unlike the hectic spaceship combat in CCP’s first VR game, EVE: Valkyrie, Sparc trades off the appeal of flying in space for something that's best described as a mix of racquetball and dodgeball. Two players in VR stand on opposite sides of a long room, and the only way to win the game is to score points by hitting your opponent with a small, floating ball. You can also catch or dodge it to avoid getting hit, but every time the ball bounces off a wall, its velocity increases, which makes the game even more intense.
