All PSVR owners to get ‘Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Jackal Assault VR Experience’ free

Whether you’re planning to purchase Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare or not, if you have a PlayStation VR headset — and there’s every reason you should — you will be able to play the CoD: Infinite Warfare Jackal Assault VR Experience, for free. All PS4 owners can download it, though of course you will need a VR headset to play.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare represents a real shift of perspective and timeline from its main FPS competitor, Battlefield. While the latter may be wallowing in the mud and guts of World War I, Infinite Warfare takes the Call of Duty franchise deeper into space than it’s ever been. Part of that will involve using new, in-and-out-of-the-atmosphere fighter jets, like the Jackal.

Much like the additional game modes bundled into the amalgamation of different experiences that is a contemporary Call of Duty game, Jackal Assault VR is a fun extra, exclusive for PSVR owners. And now, better yet, you don’t even have to buy CoD to play it. Though you never know, after playing you may want to.

In the demo, you strap in to your brand new Jackal, which comes complete with missiles and ballistic weaponry. From there you are shot off at an ungodly G-force into space, where you proceed to blow up your enemies much like you would in Eve Valkyrie or similar.

We have heard some first-hand reports that the experience can be a little nauseating for some, possibly due to the mixture of high-speed, free movement, as well as the fact that your targeting reticules are shared between head movement and stick control. As long as you remember to take a few breaks if you feel like that, you should be fine though.

To try out the Jackal Assault VR Experience yourself, you’ll need a PlayStation 4 and PSVR headset. When Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare launches on November 4, head into the PlayStation Store, navigate to the PSVR section and download the free experience for yourself.

Let us know how you get on.
