The PSVR players will be able to purchase this title on the PS Store . If you are looking for some VR titles to workout while having fun at the same time, this title should be right up your alley. Be prepared to break some sweat after you are done.

This PSVR release will be in line with the full fledged release of the title on Steam , Viveport and Oculus Store as well (for the PC-based VR headsets like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift), officially graduating it from early access.
