'Pistol Whip' (ALL) Available For PSVR - Trailer

Pistol Whip is an unstoppable VR action-rhythm FPS where you journey through a cinematic bullet hell powered by a breakneck soundtrack to become the ultimate action hero legend.

Inspired by God-mode action movies like John Wick and Equilibrium, Pistol Whip throws you gun-first into an explosive batch of hand-crafted action scenes each set to their own breakneck soundtrack.

But unlike traditional music games, Pistol Whip has no line in the sand; you have complete freedom to shoot, melee, and dodge targets to the rhythm YOU see fit.

The release comes fully-loaded with all previous content updates, for a total of 15 scenes at launch. It also debuts 24 brand-spankin’ new trophies for players to unlock--a first for Pistol Whip on any platform.

The action will continue to arrive after launch on all platforms with yet another free content update: The Heartbreaker Trilogy. After five months of face-melting music for fighters, this one is for all the lovers out there. This chilled-out take on all things action is abstract, colourful, and highly musical, pulling inspiration from trippy, rhythmic action games like Sayonara Wild Hearts. 

“After 7 years of navigating VR’s resurgence, we’re beyond excited to finally bring our smash-hit Pistol Whip to PlayStation VR,” says Denny Unger, CEO and Creative Director of Cloudhead Games. “Pistol Whip has both the depth and accessibility to keep players coming back for more, so we are super keen to be a part of the PS VR community”.

Key Features:

  • Pair the pulse-pounding pace of an FPS with the flow-state energy of a music game in a cinematic symphony of violence.
  • Form your rhythm and find your playstyle, from tactical to musical, then challenge your skill with friends and world leaderboards.
  • Infiltrate a fever dream of hand-crafted scenes, from bank heists to android uprisings, each uniquely designed to music.
  • Take it over-the-top with a variety of gameplay mods, such as Dual Wield, to enable the ultimate gun kata experience.
  • Constant momentum and comfort-first design allows non-stop speed without the fear of motion sickness.
  • Featuring EDM artists from Kannibalen Records, including Apashe, HVDES, and Black Tiger Sex Machine; with more to come...

Pistol Whip is currently available for PC (SteamVR, Oculus, Viveport) and PS4 (PSVR).
