VR SHOOTER DICK WILDE LAUNCHES TODAY ON PS VR

“Exterminator Extraordinaire” Dick Wilde blasts onto PSVR today after his initial launch on Oculus and Vive last month. The madcap shooter will be compatible with both the PlayStation Aim and Move controllers.

London, May 18th 2017: New London-based publisher, PlayStack, is pleased to announce the PSVR launch of their first VR game, Dick Wilde, after it’s launch on Oculus and vive on April 30th. Take to the swamps of Mississippi as Dick Wilde, the ultimate outdoorsman and “Exterminator Extraordinaire”, armed to the teeth with an arsenal of saw-blade rifles, nail guns and an electrified bow and arrow. Your job is to exterminate the infestation of ‘gators, crocs, piranhas and out-of-control birds before they exterminate you.

Dick Wilde is the latest madcap VR title from Danish development studio Bolverk Games, developers of ‘Kittypocalypse’. Set in the swamplands of Mississippi and the surrounding area, players can pit themselves against exterminators from all over the world with the online global leaderboard. Compete for the biggest killstreaks and top scores across three variable difficulty levels in each environment, the Swamp, the Lagoon and the North.

Not quite ready to show the world your extermination skills? Play with friends in a local Party Mode. Monitor your vitals and accuracy to perfect your technique and experiment with your arsenal of weapons. Each environment offers different deadly critters ranging from electric eels, piranhas and more, to Dick’s nemesis, a giant turtle. Pick the right weapons to become the most effective exterminator in town and avoid getting devoured by alligators.

Bo Bennekov, CEO at Bolverk Games said: “We’re thrilled to introduce PlayStation gamers to Dick Wilde. It’s really exciting for us to have worked on one of the first titles to be Aim controller compatible and we think it really compliments the Dick Wilde gameplay.”

“The response to Dick Wilde so far has been great, we wanted our first VR game to capture everyone’s attention and Dick Wilde really delivered.” said Harvey Elliott, Founder and CEO of PlayStack. “Bolverk are a really innovative studio and we’re really pleased to be partnered with them. Their games have captured the funnest elements of VR in a genre that can often be overly serious.”
