Sony has unveiled during the recent PlayStation Experience 2015 event in California four new titles that will come out for the PlayStation VR.

The new titles were introduced along with demonstrations to show off their gameplay.

The games unveiled by Sony include "Job Simulator," "Eclipse," "Classroom Aquatic" and "Distance." As its title suggests, "Job Simulator" will let users of the virtual reality headset for the PlayStation platform experience what it's like to take on tasks that have now been assigned to robots, according to IGN.

"Eclipse," on the other hand, will take gamers to an alien planet. The objective of the game is to explore the planet and the relics deeply connected to its dark past.

Another game that will be available for the PlayStation VR is "Classroom Aquatic." In this underwater title, players will take on the role of a dolphin as they join a classroom filled with their marine animal classmates.

As an aquatic animal in school, they will have to pass a series of tests underwater.

Lastly, "Distance" is an upcoming racing-themed game with elements of survival. According to Jordan Hemenway from development studio Refract, the game will not take place on a traditional race track but on a world filled with dangerous obstacles.

"'Distance' is what we're calling a survival game," he told IGN. "It takes the intense action of arcade racing and places it in an explorable, atmospheric world. The environments are mysterious and deadly with treacherous obstacles around every corner."

"Instead of doing laps on a loop, you'll be trying to survive from point A to point B," he added.

Aside from these titles, Sony also demoed other games for the PlayStation VR including "Eagle Flight," "Modern Zombie Taxi Co.," "Golem," "Ace Combat 7," "100Fft Robot Golf," "Psychonauts in the Rhombus Ruin" and the remake of "Rez Infinite," according to The Verge.

Representatives from the company, however, did not announce exactly when these titles will come out. But, these titles will probably debut shortly after PlayStation VR officially launches, which for now, is scheduled sometime during the first quarter of next year.

Given its nature, the PlayStation VR is expected to be the next step in the world of gaming. Through an immersive virtual environment, Sony is targeting to provide gamers a truly unique and realistic gameplay experience. As Venture Beat noted, the company predicted that the virtual reality business will balloon into a $30-billion industry by 2020.
