This is the game I've been waiting a long time for to appear in VR. It was there briefly with the Razer Hydra working to give you the ability to use two hands in the game. Bossa Studios released the Team Fortress level for those with the HTC Vive. But now, we're getting a full fledge VR Surgeon Simulator game.
Surgeon Simulator: ER is out right now the PlayStation VR with the HTC Vive version coming December 5th and the Oculus Rift version coming December 6th. With the Experience Reality version, we're looking at new challenges now that we get the use of both hands as well as being able to freely look around.
I was able to get all the achievements for Surgeon Simulator, but it looks like there's some new ones to come about with the ER release. I can't wait. No word if those with the previous versions will get a discount, but you bet I'm getting it when it comes out.
The Steam page lists the game for $20 and you can get the original for free if you pre-order now.
About Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality
Bob’s life is in your hands in this darkly humorous VR game, taking you closer to bloody surgery than you possibly ever wanted to go! From the operating theatre, to the back of an ambulance, to outer space, your trusting patient’s welfare will be in your virtual hands.
If you’ve ever actually wanted to know what it feels like to delicately remove teeth from a patient using nothing but a subtle claw hammer, or to perform complex eye surgery in Zero-G, now is your chance (without all the added hassle of flashing blue lights, plane tickets, rushed flights and Interpol).
In addition to the original surgeries, Surgeon Simulator: ER adds exclusive new features for you to experience in VR. How about brain surgery in the dark? Fancy some new achievements? What about a 2nd hand to perform surgery?! It’s all here for you in Surgeon Simulator: ER!
Now with over 3 million ‘trained’ surgeons across the world, Surgeon Simulator has become a firm favourite with players across the globe. YOU are the doctor. Bob is the patient. His life is literally in your hands.
