We know what you’re thinking – is my favourite VR game, Pistol Whip, going to see some new action in the new year? It’s a valid question. Whether making games for VR or flatscreen, every dev will tell you that keeping a game updated with fresh content is no small feat, but here at Cloudhead Games we’re dedicated to our community of heroes and committed to continue adding to the game for as long as possible.
Just like our preferred style of gameplay, our team is unstoppable, and in that spirit we’ve already mapped out a pile of exciting new updates for 2023!
Welcome: the Pistol Whip Winter Roadmap.
By the time you read this, our 2022 Holiday Update will have launched, bringing a suite of quality-of-life updates to make for a more comfortable and intuitive experience. You can read about everything we improved last week in our previous blog post here.
The next announcement will answer a question many heroes have been asking over the last few months: Pistol Whip is indeed coming to Pico, just in time for the holiday season (and all those sweet sales afterward)! You’ll be able to grab our flagship Physical Action-Rhythm game on Pico 4 starting December 15, 2022.
If you’ve been following our social channels you may already be looking forward to the arrival of Pistol Whip on the upcoming Playstation VR2, which is launching February 22, 2023. With exclusive enhanced haptics and superspeed loading times, you’re getting a big upgrade when the PS VR2 lands – plus if you already own the game on PS VR, you’ll get the brand new version at no cost!
Now for something we know you’ve been waiting for, asking about, dreaming of… That’s right, we’re adding an official modding tool! The highly anticipated Pistol Mix will roll out next year. We can’t wait to see what kinds of custom Scenes you create and share with the VR community.
Finally, we’ve been bursting at the seams for weeks waiting to tell you this last (but certainly not least) piece of news. There’s not one, not two, not three, but a whole series of shiny new Scenes coming to Pistol Whip over the course of 2023! Handcrafted for maximum impact, the fresh challenges featured in the Overdrive update will contain some of the best music and gunplay choreography yet.
That’s a lot of information to take in all at once, so don’t feel bad if you need a breather! Just know that this is only a sneak peek of what we have planned for next year; there’s so much more to come. Pick up a copy today and find out what you’ve been missing.
