Cities VR – Enhanced Edition | Developer: Fast Travel Games
Cities: VR is a VR adaptation of the leading city-builder, Cities: Skylines, where you get to build and manage the city of your dreams. From small hamlets to grand metropoles, design road networks, manage your city’s finances, and provide your citizens with the services they need as you buy land and expand your city. With the power of the PS5 we’re able to bring you great detail, allowing you to watch your city come alive all the way from the bustling streets to a bird’s eye view in a smooth experience. With the help of the PlayStation VR2 Sense controller, the building of your city has never felt more responsive.
Cosmonious High | Developer: Owlchemy Labs
From the creators of popular and award winning titles Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator, comes an original creation - the comically catastrophic Cosmonious High. In this single-player alien adventure, players take on the role of a Prismi, a rare alien species that can adapt to any situation. Upon crash-landing into the school players find that it is alive with delightful characters but plagued by mysterious malfunctions. Players will unlock powers to help restore Cosmonious High to its former glory.
Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue | Developer: tinyBuild Games
Mr. Peterson’s creepy house takes on a new level of immersion in VR, and there is nothing quite as scary as actually seeing that familiar shadow tower over you just before everything goes black. In Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue, you’ll return to that house and take on the role of six little neighborhood heroes as they confront their fears to free their friend who is held captive in a bizarre basement prison.
You’ll need to learn and master each of their unique abilities to solve puzzles, uncover mysteries, and make it out of the neighbor’s house in one piece, all in the midst of trying not to get caught by the creepy neighbor himself.
Jurassic World Aftermath Collection | Developer: Coatsink
This reworked version of the popular survival adventure game combines both Part 1 and Part 2 into one complete collection. Set between Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, players crash land on the familiar Isla Nublar and find themselves trapped in an abandoned research facility. Featuring a fully voice-acted narrative led by Laura Bailey, with Jeff Goldblum reprising his role as Dr Ian Malcolm, the player’s mission is to recover valuable information and survive while evading a host of ferocious and familiar dinosaurs.
The game looks better than ever, targeting 4K at 90 FPS. In addition to taking advantage of PS VR2’s new capabilities like headset rumble and use of 3D audio, we’ve added volumetric lighting, enhanced post-processing effects, and faster loading times, which really enhance the immersive nature of this experience.

Pistol Whip is an award-winning physical action-rhythm game where thrilling gunplay and dynamic tracks collide, creating a dreamscape world for players to blast, duck, and dodge their way through to become the ultimate action hero.

Zenith: The Last City | Developer: Ramen VR
Zenith: The Last City is coming to PlayStation VR2 as a first-day launch title. The team is constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, so I promise you this is not the same Zenith since launch.

After The Fall | Developer: Vertigo Games
After the Fall, an intense co-op shooter set in a post-apocalyptic version of Los Angeles is coming in 2023 to PS VR2!. Team up with three others after setting out from a survivor camp that is shared with up to 32 players at a time. Or, if you prefer to head out into the city’s solo and take on the hordes of mutants or towering bosses by yourself, that’s an option too. We’re taking advantage of the new PS VR2 features, adding a new level of immersion to After the Fall’s signature gunplay through the PS VR2 Sense Controller.. Every slide you rack and magazine you release can now be felt throughout your entire hands through haptic feedback, while each gun now mimics its real-life counterpart in trigger pull weight using dynamic use of adaptive triggers.
