What is PSVR 2?
This isn’t the first time that Sony has offered virtual reality technology, as its first PSVR headset was released all the way back in 2016 for the PS4. On the surface, the original PSVR was a peripheral that provided an entry-level approach to VR, requiring multiple cables as well as a camera and external lights for both head- and controller-tracking.
The successor leverages more powerful technology in its design, as well as several other quality-of-life upgrades for the PS5-exclusive device that could potentially rival other mainstream VR headsets such as the Meta (formerly Oculus) Quest 2 and the Valve Index.
Other features worth mentioning are the eye-tracking cameras that follow your line of sight when you’re aiming or looking around. Using advanced foveated rendering techniques, this technology is potentially capable of adjusting image quality to pinpoint and enhance whatever you’re focusing on, thus creating an improved visual experience.
The four integrated cameras can track you and the DualSense controller in real-time, with that data being used to reflect your actions inside of the game. If you weren’t a fan of using the PS4 Camera for VR, this method trims a lot of fat off of the experience.
Which games will PSVR 2 have?
Sony hasn’t confirmed many games yet for PSVR 2, but the handful of titles in development do provide a wide spread of genres and appeal. Horizon Call of the Wild is a spin-off of Guerrilla’s popular Horizon series and will let you play as a new character who explores the post-apocalyptic world of a robot uprising. This launch title is being developed by Firesprite, a studio that Sony acquired in 2021.
Runner, under development by Truant Pixel. Part anime, part extreme motorcycle hot pursuit simulator, Runner merges its Akira influences to create intense motorcycle chase sequences and will also be available on other VR platforms. Samurai Slaughter House uses a unique art style to deliver some brutal melee combat. Like Runner, it’ll be a multiplatform game for VR devices.
Developer Fast Travel games confirmed it is working on multiple PSVR 2 titles when it tweeted about the headset. Fast Travel Games is the developer behind VR games like Apex Construct, Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency, Cities: VR, and more.
Schell Games confirmed that Among Us VR is planned for PSVR2, along with just about every other VR platform.
The latest from the creators of Myst, Firmament, is also coming to PSVR 2, which comes with the unfortunate side effect that the version of the game planned for the original PSVR headset has now been cancelled.
