‘Apex Construct’ Gets Free PSVR Demo, Now Available on US PSN Store

Sadly, demos aren’t really the norm for VR games, making it tough to know if that tantalizingly polished-looking game really works as well as it looks in trailers. Now, Apex Construct (2018) developers Fast Travel Games have released a demo on the PSN store, which ought to tip the balances a bit.

At the time of this writing, a version is already available on the US PSN store. Both UK and EU-based PSVR owners can expect a copy to hit their respective markets on May 14th.

Launched PSVR in February, and followed by Vive and Rift in March, Apex Construct puts you in the shoes of the only remaining human on the planet, where you’re dropped into a world where two powerful AIs are locked in a drawn-out conflict. Promising secret areas and plenty of puzzles, your ultimate aim is to figure out why life went extinct.

Using a bow and shield, you fend off the world’s ambling predatory robots, the results of mankind’s reckless experiments.

The game, which costs $30, puts a heavy emphasis on bow shooting, a controller mechanic seen in few games on the PSVR platform due to the system’s occlusion-prone single tracking sensor. The demo ought to help you decide either way if it’s for you—and although we didn’t have a chance to review—it’s currently sitting at a solid 4/5 stars on PSN.
