About GUNGRAVE VR

In GUNGRAVE VR, players take control of undead assassin BEYOND THE GRAVE with his iconic pair of massive handguns, CERBERUS, and will have to master different playstyles to take down the various foes that stand in his way. Levels consist either of free-moving third-person gameplay or first-person action that includes both stationary and mobile sections, offering players a variety of modes putting them in the shoes of the resurrected Millennion agent himself. With an array of shooting attacks, close-range strikes using Grave’s Death Coffin, slow-motion Reaper Time, and more, GUNGRAVE VR brings an authentic GUNGRAVE experience to virtual reality for the very first time.

 

GUNGRAVE VR will be published for PlayStation®VR for PlayStation®4 system by XSEED Games digitally and at retail on December 11, 2018. This title is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
