Sony Interactive To Launch Two VR Games This Fall
In celebration of this achievement, Yee said Sony will launch two highly anticipated PS VR games in the fall, with the help of its partners.

Based on the game's description, Creed: Rise to Glory features the journey of Adonis Creed from being an underground amateur fighter to a boxing champion. The game is expected to challenge the body and mind as Creed fights through the ranks en route to becoming a boxing champion. Players will have a chance to train with the legendary Rocky Balboa.
Sony said the player will feel every punch, uppercut, and flurry through situational desynchronization, including fatigue, staggering, and knockouts through the Phantom Melee Technology.
'Evasion' To Be Launched On Oct. 9
PlayStation also said that Evasion, the sci-fi first-version VR shooter designed by Archiact, will hit the market on Oct. 9, while preorder has already started. Evasion features four unique hero classes responsible for saving an embattled human colony.
Players could play solo or can join forces to rescue humans from swarms of invading Optera. PlayStation said Evasion gives VR fans an authentic FPS experience they have been searching for.
