Coffee Stain Studios’ over-the-top, mayhem-fueled stunt game Goat Simulator is coming to Sony consoles next month, porting studio Double Eleven announced today.

The upcoming PlayStation 4 and PS3 editions of Goat Simulator will introduce an exclusive GoatVR mode, spoofing current gaming trends within the realm of virtual reality.

Released on April Fool’s Day last year, Goat Simulator is anything but an accurate simulation of goat life, putting players in control of a wildly destructive creature that earns points for causing mayhem in a variety of simulated environments. Players can string together combos by headbutting humans and performing high-flying stunts reminiscent of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series.

Goat Simulator makes the leap into absurdity by equipping its starring goat with jetpacks, hang gliders, and other tools usually reserved for humans. The simulated goat also possesses an infinitely stretching tongue that can attach to environmental objects, leading to unlikely situations involving helicopters and explosives right out of Just Cause 2.

Goat Simulator made its console debut earlier this year with ports for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The upcoming PlayStation versions of Goat Simulator will retain the game’s recently introduced co-op mode, offering split-screen gameplay for two players on the PS3 and up to four players on the PS4.

Double Eleven additionally teases a PlayStation-exclusive GoatVR mode, though few details regarding the cutting-edge feature have been divulged thus far.

“We’ve been working on GoatVR for some time, and we’re pleased to debut it in the Playstation editions of Goat Simulator,” Double Eleven’s Mark South notes in the post on the PlayStation Blog. “GoatVR is the most authentic ‘simulated GoatVR experience’ that doesn’t require a helmet or anything. Although it’s not quite ready yet we felt it better to stay ahead of the crowd and let it out into the wild.”

South adds: “We still need to do that part where it connects to an actual headset but for now you can enjoy a simulated GoatVR experience without it. We’ve also added a score multiplier to help offset the concerns we’ve had from a very few number of Beta testers that felt it was somewhat difficult to ‘see where you are going.'”

Goat Simulator will launch for the PlayStation 4 and PS3 on August 11.
