Playstation VR 2: Sony announces 8 VR games - starting in October
Sony has announced new releases for the Playstation VR 2. Among them is a brand-new sci-fi shooter that sends you through different dimensions.
While all eyes were on the Meta Connect 2023 this week, Sony was preparing some announcements for the Playstation VR 2. On the Playstation blog, a bunch of new and already known VR games were unveiled that will soon be released for PSVR 2. A previously unannounced title called Heroes of Forever is also among the announcements.
Paper Beast Enhanced Edition
Pixel Reef presents Paper Beast Enhanced Edition, a revamped version of the VR game originally released for PSVR in 2020. New features include dynamic textures, atmospheric lighting, and expanded sandbox options.
Players can now immerse themselves in 4K environments with sharper textures and realistic sand and water effects. The game also now offers smooth locomotion thanks to the power of the PS5. Paper Beast Enhanced Edition is available now for PSVR 2.
Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs.
Resolution Games is bringing Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs to Playstation VR 2. Owners of the PSVR version can upgrade for $10. The game will be released for PSVR 2 on October 10, 2023.
Journey to Foundation
Sony already showed Journey to Foundation at a State of Play earlier this year.
Now there's a new trailer and a release date. The narrative VR action adventure will be released on October 26, 2023, for PSVR 2.
Based on the novels of Isaac Asimov, Journey to Foundation takes players on an epic journey across the galaxy. You play as Agent Ward, equipped with special mental abilities to recognize and manipulate emotions.
One of the ways you use these abilities is through your line of sight, which is tracked by the PSVR 2's eye tracking, and you can expect gunplay, climbing, puzzles, and freedom of choice in the story sections.
The Foglands was also announced without a date so far. The atmospheric rogue-lite game will be released just in time for Halloween on October 31, 2023, for PSVR 2.
Watch the new trailer here.
A giant worm-like creature threatens the survival of a mysterious world called “The Hold”. You take on the role of Jim, a Runner who supplies the inhabitants with collected goods and fights the creatures of the fog.
Thanks to the help of a mysterious Stranger, you'll gain supernatural abilities. Throughout the game, you'll explore ever-changing worlds, fight monsters with melee and firearms, and collect valuable items to ensure the survival of the Hold.
Tiger Blade is an intense arcade action experience set in the neo-Korean city of Sewoon. Scheduled for release on PSVR 2 on November 17, 2023, the game focuses on fast-paced and dynamic melee combat combined with gunplay.
Tin Hearts, developed by Rogue Sun, is a narrative puzzle adventure that takes you into the life of Victorian toy maker Albert Butterworth.
