PSVR 2, Sony’s next-gen virtual reality for the PS5, is officially on the way. While the PSVR 2 was officially announced in 2021, with only a preview of the PSVR 2 controllers revealed, Sony has now confirmed that its next-gen VR will be called PlayStation VR 2 and will come with the PlayStation VR 2 Sense controller. According to Sony, this new hardware will offer high-fidelity visuals, new sensory features and improved tracking.
In addition to the reveal of the PSVR 2, Sony also announced its first PSVR 2 game: Horizon Call of the Mountain. Developed by Guerrilla Games and Firesprite, Horizon Call of the Mountain is a VR spin-off from the popular PlayStation Horizon series that will allow us to once again venture into nature on a whole new adventure.
But what other games can we expect to enjoy PSVR 2? While we don’t know exactly when we’ll get our hands on next-gen VR from Sony, there are plenty of upcoming VR games set to take advantage of the new hardware. Below we’ve rounded up the PSVR 2 games that have been confirmed so far as well as those that we think will make their way to PlayStation VR 2. But be sure to check back here, as we’ll be updating this. list as we go PSVR 2 games are confirmed.
PSVR 2 games confirmed
Horizon Call of the Mountain
Horizon Call of the Mountain is the first and only confirmed PSVR 2 game to date. Developed by Guerrilla and Firesprite Games, Horizon Call of the Mountain is set to be a whole new experience in the world of PlayStation’s popular Horizon series.
Made for PSVR 2, Horizon Call of the Mountain will be told through the eyes of an all-new protagonist – although Aloy and other familiar faces from the series make their appearance.
In one PlayStation blog postGuerrilla Studio Director Jan-Bart van Beek wrote that Horizon Call of the Mountain is “designed to push hardware technology, innovation and gameplay” while “stunning visuals and all-new PS controllers VR2 Sense gives a new meaning to the total immersion in the world of Horizon. “
Currently, Horizon Call of the Mountain does not have a release date, but we believe it will serve as the launch title for PSVR 2 (which currently does not have a launch date).
Rumored PSVR 2 games
Below we’ve put together a list of upcoming PSVR games that should be compatible with PSVR 2. It should be noted that Sony has not confirmed any of these titles for PSVR 2 at the time of writing.
Zenith: the last city
Zenith: The Last City is an anime-inspired MMO that takes place generations after a cataclysmic event known as The Fracture. Alongside the others, players will harness the power of the Essence to become increasingly powerful and fight to prevent the Rift from happening again.
RamenVR’s upcoming title is expected to combine a fantastic and colorful open world with action RPG gameplay, creating an immersive online VR MMO that looks to be perfect for PSVR 2.
At the moment, Zenith is confirmed for PSVR, with a release date to be confirmed. We may see the release date pushed back to accompany the launch of the PSVR 2, allowing the power of Sony’s next-gen hardware to be showcased in a dynamic open world.
Foam Book II
Moss is already one of the best PSVR games out there, so we expect its sequel, Moss: Book II, to be just as (if not more) impressive.
Moss sees you play as a heroic mouse called Quill who in the first game was on a quest to save both his kingdom and his uncle from a fire-breathing serpent. Moss: Book II picks up where the first game left off and sees Quill being hunted down by a winged tyrant and his forces.
Moss: Book II will be released for PSVR in “Spring 2022” but, given that we expect PSVR 2 to likely release later this year, it’s almost certain that this sequel will have PSVR 2 compatibility – especially considering of the success of the first game.
Among us VR
Revealed at the Game Awards 2021, Among Us VR seeks to make the popular social deduction game even more immersive when it arrives in 2022.
At the moment, Among Us VR is confirmed for PlayStation VR, but like Moss: Book II, we cannot see this new VR game not supporting PSVR 2. Although the support for PSVR 2 does not won’t come at launch if Among Us comes out before PlayStation VR 2, we expect support to roll out quite quickly after the new hardware launches.
Gran Turismo 7
Given the success of Gran Turismo Sport VR, we wouldn’t be surprised to see the next Gran Turismo 7 land on PSVR 2 at launch – in fact, that seems like a strong possibility.
In 2021, Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that when it comes to harnessing the power of next-gen consoles, Gran Turismo 7 developer Polyphony Digital primarily focuses on virtual reality. .
“The first thing that’s going to be affected by more power is virtual reality,” Yamauchi said. GT Planet. “I don’t think there is anything else that requires so much processing power. I really like virtual reality; I’m the type who believes in its possibilities, and it’s very suitable for a driving game.
Gran Turismo 7 is slated to launch in March, and PSVR 2 likely won’t be until the end of the year, leaving time for VR support to be implemented for the hardware launch.
Resident Evil Village
Like Gran Turismo, the Resident Evil series has found success in VR. Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 4 VR are both considered some of the best VR games, with virtual reality adding an extra gruesome layer to games that already create a lot of palpable tension.
So it would make perfect sense for Resi’s latest entry, Resident Evil Village, to get virtual reality support for PSVR 2. After all, the PS5 version of the game has already shown how 3D audio and haptic feedback add to horror immersion.
The arrival of Hitman 3 VR on PSVR 2 makes sense from a practical standpoint. Currently, Hitman 3 VR is available on PSVR but is not supported on PS5. This means you can only play it on PS4 or the PS4 version on PS5 – but it’s a bit tricky to get it to work on PS5.
So it would make sense for a PSVR 2 version of Hitman 3 VR to be released, which would make it easier for PS5 owners to access Hitman 3’s VR support.
No Man’s Sky
Like Hitman 3 VR, No Man’s Sky VR only works on PS5 via backward compatibility. But, given that it’s also one of the best PSVR games available, we think it deserves a lot more than that.
We’d love to see No Man’s Sky VR support PSVR 2, allowing it to take advantage of the improved visual fidelity, new sensory features, and eye tracking that the PSVR 2 seems to offer.
The world of No Man’s Sky VR is already vibrant and breathtaking, but PSVR 2 has the potential to make them even better – and that’s something we’d love to see.
