Singapore, 21st March 2017 – Sony Interactive Entertainment Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch (SIES) announced today that PlayStation®VR title – Farpoint will be launched on 16th May in Singapore, at a suggested retail price (SRP) of SGD 64.90 for the Disc version and SGD 60.70 for the Digital version.

 PS VR Aim Controller” standalone available on the same date

To help players meet the challenge of Farpoint, the development team has been working with PlayStation® to develop the PS VR Aim Controller which will be release on 16th May at a SRP of SGD 89. The PS VR Aim Controller simulates the look and feel of a weapon in your hands right down to the virtual scope and built in haptic feedback.

Playing Farpoint with the PS VR Aim Controller not only gives you precision accuracy and unprecedented immersion when playing through the campaign, but since the controller tracks the movements of your co-op partner, it gives their character a new level of expression. When your friend leans over to look through the virtual scope on their weapon, you’ll see their avatar do it as well. Farpoint is also fully supported by the DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controller.

There is a 10% discount off the pre-order for the digital version starting from 24th March in the PlayStation®Store. There will be a pre-order bonus of the exclusive Red Planet Wanderer Spacesuit Skin if you pre-order the digital version before 31st May.

 

Co-op mode now available in Farpoint

Farpoint places you on a distant hostile world with your only chance of survival and escape being to uncover its secrets and reunite with your team. In addition to the full single player campaign, sharing the virtual world of Farpoint in co-op has been a key objective of the project from the beginning.

Farpoint features four new online* co-op levels at launch – each level designed to challenge the combined firepower of two players with teams competing for the highest score.
