Owlchemy Labs has released an all-new trailer for Vacation Simulator. Besides showing off the recreated human vacation sites, Vacation Simulator is also received a release date for Oculus and SteamVR, while PSVR owners get a release window. Players can quit their jobs and go relax on April 9 for Oculus and SteamVR or wait for this summer to play on PSVR for $29.99. You can watch the trailer below and check out our gallery of screenshots from the game.
There are four locations for you to experience a virtual trip on Vacation Island–Vacation Beach, Vacation Forest, Vacation Mountain, and Vacation Island Resort. They each appear to offer unique excursions and various activities at the location. At the beach, you can play with a beach ball, build sand castles, grill, or go underwater at the Dive Site excursion. Hike in the forest or rock climb in-place on a rock wall in the mountains.
At the Vacation Island Resort, you can play video games, watch movies, eat out of the mini fridge or fire off a few work emails. Players will also be able to make a custom avatar. Players can tweak their hair, skin, and accessories. Despite being a VR game, players will be able to see their avatar in mirrors when dressing up for locales or while snapping a selfie. The options seem vast for you to look exactly how you want in this relaxing sim.
Vacation Simulator was announced at The Game Awards 2017. It originally had a release window of 2018, but in Owlchemy Labs’ defense, the original teaser did say “maybe?” in regards to a 2018 launch. It popped back up during E3 2018 during on of PlayStation’s Live from E3 2018 streams. It’s nice to see the game get a firm release date for PC, but I really can’t wait to kick back and relax when it comes to PSVR this summer.
