    • The gameplay isn't enough to scoff at either, even without talking about the story, I would say that this is one of the best games on the PS4

      If you complete the game and go to Chapter 17 with Chapter Select, you will be able to find Chadley near the start of the chapter and access all the VR missions with any three characters of your choice. Hope this helps!
