Gearbox Software today announced that an upcoming game from magic/comedy duo Penn & Teller, Penn & Teller VR: Frankly Unfair, Unkind, Unnecessary, & Underhanded, will be available on Quest, Rift and Vive this month, with a version for PSVR coming in July.

Cleverly abbreviated to Penn & Teller VR: F U, U, U, & U, the game takes you through more than 10 “cruel magic tricks” that Gearbox says will “leave your loved ones screaming and you cackling maniacally.”

While Penn Jillette initially couches it as a way to conquer your fears, Jillette says the only fear you really have to overcome is the fear of “wasting money on a frivolous collection of VR games.”

The version for Quest, Vive, and Rift is set to release on June 27th. The PSVR version arrives slightly later on July 9th.

The game is currently available for pre-order on Oculus Quest for $20.

This isn’t the first VR game from the dynamic comedy/magic duo. Gearbox Software helped bring the old cult classic mini-game Desert Bus from the never-released Sega CD game Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors (1998) to life in VR back in 2017, dutifully named Desert Bus VR.
