As part of today’s PlayStation State of Play presentation we got a look at a number of PSVR 2 games coming to Sony’s next-gen VR for PlayStation 5. Although we don’t have a release date for PSVR 2, with its cutting edge 4K headset, inside-out tracking, and dedicated motion controllers, it’s going to be a big step up from the original. And with Resident Evil Village, Horizon Call of the Mountain, and more - it’s also going to have the games to back it up.
Here’s a look at the VR games coming to PSVR 2.
Resident Evil Village
“Soak in the gorgeous details of Dimitrescu Castle, from its beautiful chandeliers to the textures of its furnishings, In PSVR2, you’ll feel the castle’s inhabitants’ presence all the more as they stalk you through its hallways, and be prepared to get overwhelmed by its owner, Lady D…m”, writes Tsuyoshi Kanda, Producer at Capcom. “In addition to the PS VR2 headset, you’ll use the PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers to represent each hand in-world. Try guarding using both of your arms and Ethan will guard in the same way; hold up a gun and Ethan will hold up his. You are also now able to execute dynamic actions such as firing your gun while holding a knife with the other hand, or holding a handgun with one hand and a shotgun with the other. These advanced controllers increase the player’s immersion with the game.”
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution
This one is also coming to PSVR later this year, with the gameplay above showcasing how it looks on PSVR 2. “The physics-based combat and the wide variety of weapons to interact with in Saints & Sinners was one of its greatest highlights, and Chapter 2: Retribution aims to take tactile brutality even further,” Alexander Eden of Skydance Interactive says. “The gear you find won’t simply be variants of already familiar weapons, but instead be designed to provide unique methods of combat not previously available. Among the new entries to your arsenal, you will find silencers that help you avoid alerting the undead when using firearms, new guns like the SMG and sawed-off shotgun for better ranged horde control, and a chainsaw to tear through anything in your path (at the cost of its bulky weight and its need for fuel).”
No Man's Sky
This one needs no explanation, No Man’s Sky is coming to PSVR 2 and it looks awesome. “To experience No Man’s Sky in PS VR was a minor miracle, such was the technical challenge we faced bringing an infinite seamless universe into the futuristic headset,” Sean Murray, Founder of Hello Games says. “Several years later, the technology has taken another major leap forward such that, now, we have the opportunity to immerse the player to a whole new level. The power of PlayStation 5, coupled with the all-new PlayStation VR2 hardware, including the new Sense controllers, combine to take that sense of immersion and believability up by several major notches.”
Horizon Call of the Mountain
This looks incredible because it’s Horizon in first-person and in VR - with exploration, combat, and more. “In Call of the Mountain, you’ll be seeing it through the eyes of Ryas, a former Shadow Carja Warrior who hopes to redeem himself by investigating a grave new threat to the Sundom,” Ben McCaw, Narrative Director at Guerrilla says. “He is a master at climbing and archery, two skills crucial to survival as you step into his shoes, scaling perilous mountains and taking down mighty machines like the Thunderjaw. Throughout your journey, you’ll master various tools and weapons and use the world’s many materials to craft additional gear, equipping you for any situation. But you won’t be going it alone. Along the way, you’ll meet Horizon characters new and old, including Aloy herself.” And there’ll also be River Ride experience as part of the game that’ll let you sit back and enjoy the sights.
