Ultrawings 2 takes to the skies on Playstation VR 2

Ultrawings 2 is the first full-fledged flight game for Playstation VR 2 and accidentally took off too early from the Playstation Store.

FACTS

Ultrawings 2 was released yesterday on the Playstation Store, apparently earlier than Bit Planet Games had planned, as there was no announcement or targeted marketing in advance.

The studio wrote on Twitter that the release was "unforeseen," but didn't go into detail about why that happened.

Bit Planet Games notes that the current version of the game has "relatively minor issues" that should have been with fixed with a Day 1 patch, which will follow sometime next week. One of the issues affects the HOTAS controls. According to the studio, there is a workaround until the patch is released. And you can also use the Sense controllers to play Ultrawings 2.

Otherwise the game should run fine. Foveated rendering is not supported, but according to the studio, the game runs at a stable 90 Hz. Visually, the PSVR 2 version is based on the PC VR version (see trailer below).
