Additional weapons, updated AI and a reworked lighting system are among the latest free updates coming tomorrow to Espire 1: VR Operative's Assimilation for PS4 by Digital Lode. 😀

Check out the latest Espire 1: VR Operative's Assimilation PlayStation VR trailer video below via Tripwire Interactive, and to quote from Game Director Michael Wentworth-Bell on what's incoming:

With this update, we wanted to bring more polish to how the game controls and looks, as well as introduce a whole bunch of free new content. Now players will have even more freedom to approach stealth scenarios in delightfully satisfying ways.

New for PS VR

Espire 1 for PS VR now looks and plays better than ever before. The Assimilation update gives PS VR players a significant update to enemy AI, a complete rework to the lighting system in every level of the game, nine new Virtual Challenges and two new weapons.

This means there’s a bunch of new content to enjoy for existing players, and brand new players are getting the most robust version of the game to date!

For the VR players who want to scratch that arcade-y VR itch, there are a handful of brand new virtual challenges:

Climbing Challenges
  • Use the PS Move controllers to complete climbing puzzles before you get squashed by the fast-moving crushers!
Weapon Challenges
  • Test your accuracy in this Espire-flavored shooting gallery as you run and gun through stages that test your reflexes during tense firefights.
Intel Challenges
  • Get in, avoid detection, gather the intel, and get out in the fastest time possible.
New Weapons
  • Two brand new weapons have also been added that give you new options on how to approach each environment. Additionally, both new weapons have their own series of challenge modes.
Vector SMG
  • A 45-Round SMG. It fires two rounds at a time, once when pulling the trigger and again when letting go. This makes the weapon ideal for mid-range combat.
Sawed-off Shotgun
  • A brand new shotgun with a wider spread that can be holstered as either a primary or secondary weapon. It also reloads via magazine clip, which is much more efficient than individual shells.
The Espire 1: VR Operative Assimilation update has snuck its way onto the PS VR today, and is included for free for all owners of the game. To celebrate the launch of this update, Espire 1: VR Operative is also 40% off during the PlayStation Hidden Gems Sale.
