Titles Coming to all Major VR Platforms in 2019
A new music rhythm FPS game call Pistol Whip by Cloudhead Games was announced. This title will be familiar to players of the popular games Beat Saber and Super Hot.

The goal of Pistol Whip is to give the player the sense that they are shooting their way through a torrent of bad guys – to the rhythm and beat of some sick tunes.
