    Watch: PSVR’s Bravo Team Becomes Less Bad With New Update

    Earlier this year Supermassive Games launched a cooperative military shooter named Bravo Team on PSVR. Given that this is the team that brought us Until Dawn and its VR spin-off, Rush of Blood, we expected big things. Sadly, the game was a bit of a disappointment, with a wealth of issues holding it back. Today, though, a new patch has fixed some of those problems.

    Some of our biggest complaints about Bravo Team were to do with the game’s scaling and positioning issues. For the former, the player’s hands and weapons appeared absolutely massive in-game, which made aiming with the otherwise-excellent PlayStation Aim controller feel clumsy. Well, thankfully, that’s now fixed and the weapons and hands appear at a normal size. As you can see in the video below, it makes for a huge improvement and adds in a lot more immersion.

    We also found ourselves getting confused by the camera shifting when moving from cover-to-cover in the original game. That’s now been fixed, too, and there are plenty more points to actually take cover from, giving players much more freedom. Better yet, you can now do 90 degree turns to take out any pesky baddies you might have run past. The accuracy of aiming reticules has also been improved so you don’t waste ages trying to hit one enemy.

    Finally, there are improvements for enemy AI, including giving them more cover points. Overall it makes for a much better experience. Full patch notes are below.

    All that said, the patch can’t fix Bravo Team’s core issue, which is that it’s simply a rather straightforward and uninspired military shooter. It’s no longer the train wreck of a shooter many people thought it was upon release, though. If that’s good enough for you, then it might be worth grabbing Bravo Team in a sale.

    Nefertari: Journey to Eternity Is A ‘Tombscale’ VR App With Photorealistic Environments

    This has to be one of the better attempts at bringing a real-world location into VR that we’ve seen in recent months.

    Developed by Experius VR, Nefertari: Journey to Eternity, uses digital scanning to virtually recreate the Egyptian tomb of Queen Nefertari on the HTC Vive. You descend into the tomb to explore its many paintings, which have been captured in crisp, high-resolution textures that really make you feel like you’re there.

    As you explore certain paintings will be highlighted to make sure you don’t miss them. It’s only a short experience but a great game of what VR is going to be able to do for education and virtual tourism in the years to come. Also it calls itself a ‘Tombscale’ VR experience which is just about the best pun ever.

    The experience is free to download, so don’t miss out on it.
