Contest: Win a PSVR bundle, and a copy of Battlewake to play on it!


One grand prize winner, five runners-up

In today’s contest, we’ve got copies of VR title Battlewake up for grabs — as well as a PSVR unit!

It’s not often we get a prize as cool as a brand new PSVR unit. In fact, we’ve never gotten one. A real shame! VR has some really, really cool stuff, and I think it’d be awesome if more people were able to get their hands on a unit.

Well, good news! Our friends over at Battlewake decided they want you to play their game, so they’ve given us a PSVR bundle for you to give their game a spin. Isn’t that lovely of them?

Take to the high seas in the brand new virtual reality pirate game. In Battlewake, you’ll control one of four legendary pirates as you captain your ship in epic 10-player PvP ship battling action. Fighting other players not your thing? There’s also an immersive 20-chapter story campaign for you to take to the high seas as a solo captain. Fight enemy ships, the elements, and aw shit is that a giant squid?! I knew it was too good to be true! Why they gotta add scary crap like that, man?!

Read these game features while I google how to get rid of a giant squid.

  • Powerful ultimates and abilities

    • Play as four Pirate Lords (Diego, Rev, Calavera and Zhang) and channel ancient magics for special and ultimate attacks only recalled from tall tales. Unleash mighty tsunamis, send your enemies’ ships flying in stormy maelstroms, and literally release the Kraken.

  • Solo, Co-op and PvP Modes

    • Navigate the epic 20-chapter story of the Pirate Lords’ quest to discover an ancient seat of power in solo/co-op Campaign Mode, work together to complete objectives in dynamic Warfare Mode (up to 4 players), or embrace the pirate’s life in free-for-all PvP deathmatch (up to 10 players).

  • Fully-Armed, Upgradable Warships:

    • Thirteen different ship-based weapons draw inspiration from naval battles both real and imagined. Command flak cannons, ballistae, axe-throwers and more.

  • Player Progression

    • From your Captain’s Quarters, spend gold earned from matches to boost your ship’s stats and arsenal, as well as levelling up your own Pirate Lord skills and abilities to turn the tides in your favor.

  • Technology:

    • No sea-sickness: From Raw Data’s teleshift to Sprint Vector’s fluid locomotion, Survios has made great strides in challenging the standards of VR movement. Battlewake marks Survios’s first venture into vehicular locomotion and combat in VR, with a proprietary technology coined the Immersive Vehicle System. Using Adaptive Physics and Peripheral Effects subsystems, players can focus on the battle at hand and take on the wildest waves, while limiting the common triggers of sea-sickness.

    • Reactive Water: the sea turns from peaceful to extreme as comets and tentacles blast into the water, bosses arrive and send out shockwaves, ultimates transform water into whirlpools, tidal waves and maelstroms to make truly epic battles.

So, that’s the game. As mentioned, they’ve also included a PSVR bundle including the headset, PS Camera, two Fun Wands (that’s what they’re called, right?), and the 87 wires required to hook up to your console! This is a brand new unit, so if you’ve got a PS4, you’ll be able to plug in and hop right into the game. After you set it up and download everything, of course. 2019!
