Townsmen is HandyGames’ longest-running IP spanning well over a decade and dozens of versions across countless devices. Needless to say, we love our Townies, so it was an easy decision to give them a home within the virtual reality realm. And what better way to bring them to life than with the upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset? Leveraging the power of the PlayStation 5 (PS5) console and the unique haptic capabilities of the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller, our builders, farmers, hunters, and soldiers feel more lifelike than ever before.
Townsmen VR will be available on February 22nd, 2023, for PS VR2 on your PS5 system and will be sold as both a digital and, thanks to THQ Nordic, a physical version.
Townsmen VR uses the exciting possibilities of virtual reality to further enhance the classic city-building genre through an entirely new gameplay experience and interactive mechanics. The game combines elements of a God-game simulation and a classic building game with the interactive possibilities of VR controls. Whether from a bird’s eye view or zoomed-in close, you will always experience the action from the proper perspective.
