Assemble beautiful real-world locations captured in stunning clarity via photogrammetry 3D scanning this Winter on PSVR.
I absolutely love it when a game makes full use of the immersive capabilities of VR technology. Puzzling Places, a hyper-realistic VR puzzle game from developer Realities.io, is one such example. Today, it was revealed that the one-of-a-kind VR experience is coming to PlayStation VR this winter for an unspecified price, offering console VR players the chance to experience one of the most unique VR puzzlers currently available on headsets.
Currently in beta on Oculus Quest/Quest 2 headsets, Puzzling Places has you assembling photorealistic 3D captures of famous real-world locations from around the world. Think of it as a VR jigsaw puzzle, only instead of connecting cardboard pieces to create a 2D image, you’re assembling 3D miniatures of historic locations such as Tsuruga Castle in Aizuwakamatsu, Japan; the Tavet Monastery in Tavet, Armenia; and the Devils Slide Bunker in Pacifica, CA, United States just to name a few.
Each puzzle comes complete with its own spatial audio captured on-site from said location. The more you assemble, the further you’re immersed in a captivating 3D soundscape, resulting in an awe-inspiring puzzle experience that’s as relaxing and meditative as it is challenging.
Puzzling Places arrives on PlayStation VR later this winter. No word yet on an official price. As for the Quest/Quest 2 version, Realities.io is working with Oculus on an official release. In the meantime, the game can be accessed for free via the App Lab or SideQuest 100%.
