PSVR 2 Games: Every Announced Project & PSVR 2 Launch Titles
PSVR 2 launches on February 22 for $550, but what about PSVR 2 games?
We’ve got a full rundown of all announced and rumored PSVR 2 games to keep track of. We originally published this article on January 6, 2022 and have been updating and republishing it for the last year. Now, Sony has formally announced its launch lineup with more than 30 titles expected for the platform in the launch release window. We’ve got the full list below, plus some rumored games to mention as well, but please email us at [email protected] if you have any additional updates.
Harnessing the power of the PS5, PSVR 2 will be capable of much more ambitious games than the original headset, which ran on the PS4. We recently went hands-on with the headset – you can read that here.
As we’ve moved close to its release on February 22 Sony has unveiled more and more of the PSVR 2 games arriving at launch and beyond. Besides official announcements, there’s plenty of rumored PSVR 2 games as well. If we’ve missed any titles or if you’re a developer with news of your game launch on PSVR 2, please contact us at [email protected]
Here’s our full list of confirmed and rumored PSVR 2 games.
PSVR 2 Games: Confirmed Games
Horizon Call of the Mountain
The first game Sony itself officially announced for PSVR 2, Horizon Call of the Mountain is a spin-off of the popular open-world series. You might have already played Horizon Zero Dawn, in which protagonist Aloy learned about the near-extinction of humanity and the rise of dinosaur-like machines, or its sequel, Forbidden West on PS4 or PS5.
Call of the Mountain is an all-new entry in which you play as a new character (though you will meet Aloy), developed by one of Sony’s newly-acquired studios, Firesprite. It will feature a full campaign with multiple paths, alongside a seperate river ride experience.
Call of the Mountain releases as a launch day title for PSVR 2 on February 22.
Resident Evil Village
After months of rumors and speculation, we finally know that the entire Resident Evil 8 experience will come to PSVR 2. First released in 2021, Resident Evil 8 reunited players with Ethan, the protagonist from Resident Evil 7, on an all new horror adventure. The first trailer for PSVR 2 support also shows motion controls (which weren’t included in the PSVR version of Resident Evil 7) and new features.
Resident Evil 8’s PSVR 2 support launches on February 22, available as a free update for the existing PS5 game.
Resident Evil 4 Remake (‘Supported Content’)
There’s a catch to this one. Capcom is remaking Resident Evil 4 for PS5 and it looks fantastic, but the PSVR 2 integration is currently described as “supported content”, which suggests we won’t get the full game in VR. That may have something to do with the fact the original Resident Evil 4 is available on Quest 2 as a platform exclusive. It remains to be seen exactly what this PSVR 2 content will look like, but the game’s out in March 2023.
No Man’s Sky
To the surprise of pretty much no one, the excellent VR support for No Man’s Sky will find its way into the PS5 version when PSVR 2 is released. Hello Games has already done a great job implementing VR into the PS4 and PC versions of the game, so it seems likely that the PS5 edition will hold up as well. As with past updates, we’d expect this to be a free add-on to the game for PS5 owners.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Chapter 2 – Retribution
The original Saints & Sinners is one of PSVR’s best games, so it’s great to hear that the follow-up will reach both that headset and PSVR 2. The sequel released on Quest at the end of 2022 and is scheduled for launch on PSVR 2 in March of 2023.
This one felt inevitable, though Sony and Meta certainly kept us waiting. At CES 2023, Jim Ryan revealed Beat Saber is officially coming to PSVR 2. However, that was pretty much all he confirmed during Sony’s keynote. There’s no news on multiplayer or a release date yet, but Ryan confirms they’ll have “more information to share in the near future.”
Gran Turismo 7
We’d long suspected Gran Turismo 7 would jump to PSVR 2. While Polyphony Digital previously sidestepped the question, SIE President Jim Ryan confirmed the racing sim’s heading to Sony’s new headset at launch during Sony’s CES 2023 keynote. Much like Resident Evil Village, that comes a free update for all existing owners on PS5.
Jurassic World Aftermath Collection
Coatsink is bringing the Jurassic World Aftermath Collection to PSVR 2 in 2023, which it calls a “reworked version” of Part 1 and Part 2 releases on Quest, packaged into one complete offering. Coatsink says Aftermath is “targeting 4K at 90 FPS” on PSVR 2 and will take advantage of the headset features such in-headset rumble and 3D audio.
This version of the game will also include added volumetric lighting, enhanced post-processing effects and faster loading times, alongside a new “Dino Viewer” that lets you view the game’s dinosaurs in a museum setting.
The Aftermath Collection will launch in 2023 for PSVR 2.
Among Us VR
Originally confirmed for PSVR 1, we now know Schell Games’ take on the ever-popular whodunnit game will be coming to PSVR 2. Before Sony confirmed the February 22 release date for PSVR, Schell Games confirmed the game would make its way to PSVR 2 “when [the headset] is released.” We’ve received no update since then, but we’ve reached out to Schell Games to clarify if the game is a launch title for PSVR 2.
Update: In a response to UploadVR, Schell Games said it can’t provide an exact release date for Among Us VR on PSVR 2 yet.
This tabletop RPG-inspired dungeon crawler was one of our favorite games of last year and soon it’ll be available on PSVR 2 as well. Demeo will release as a launch title for PSVR 2 on February 22, with support for eye tracking and cross-play in 2023.

Star Wars: Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition
Much like Aftermath, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition will package both parts from the original Quest releases into one complete offering on PSVR 2 in 2023. ILMxLAB says that the game has been rebuilt for “to take advantage of many of the enhancements the hardware has to offer” including eye tracking and haptics in both the headset and Sense controllers.
Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord
A collaboration between VR developer nDreams and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality, Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord is confirmed for release on PSVR 2. While the game will initially launch as an exclusive for the Quest platform in 2023, it will make its way to PSVR 2 sometime after – no exact date just yet.
You can read more about the game here.
Other Unannounced nDreams Games
In a recent funding announcement, UK-based nDreams confirmed that it’s working on multiple projects for PSVR 2. We now know that one of those is Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord, but what about the others?
The studio has a long history with VR, but is best known for its 2020 stealth action VR, Phantom: Covert Ops, in which players infiltrated hostile territory in a kayak, and last year’s blockbuster PSVR shooter, Fracked. There’s no word yet on what these other new projects will be, but nDreams now consists of three studios making VR content, and we’d gladly replay Fracked on new hardware.
Firewall and Solaris developer First Contact Entertainment announced Firewall Ultra last year, releasing exclusively for PSVR 2. This follow-up to Firewall Zero Hour is described as an ‘evolution’ of the franchise, adding loads of new content while also carrying over and upgrading content from Zero Hour as well.
You can find more info here.
The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR
This horror-themed rollercoaster shooter will be a launch day title for PSVR 2, taking advantage of the headset’s unique features such as adaptive triggers and eye tracking. You can read more about the game here, which releases as a PSVR 2 launch title on February 22.
Crossfire: Sierra Squad
Crossfire: Sierra Squad is an upcoming arcade shooter, spun-off from popular FPS title Crossfire. It will feature over 60 campaign missions and 40 different weapons when it launches in Summer 2023 for PSVR 2. You can read more here.
The Light Brigade
From Funktronic Labs, the developers of Fujii, comes a new single player roguelike that will see you join the ranks of the titular Light Brigade and play through procedurally generated battlegrounds with “realistic physics-based gunplay” and spells. It will release on PSVR 2 (as well as Quest 2) in Q1 2023.
Cities: VR – Enhanced Edition
After releasing on Quest 2 earlier this year, Cities: VR is coming to PSVR 2 at launch in February. This game brings the full Cities: Skylines experience into VR. According to the PlayStation blog, this Enhanced Edition will use the PS5’s horsepower to bring “great detail” and ensure a “smooth experience” when observing you cities from all levels. We’re looking forward to stacking this version of the game up against the Quest 2 version when it releases as a launch title for PSVR 2 on February 22.
Esteemed VR studio Owlchemy Labs will bring its latest release, Cosmonious High, to PSVR 2 as a launch title in 2023. This version of the game will add eye tracking support and real-time shadows. It will also take advantage of the unique force feedback hardware in the Sense controllers and PSVR 2 headset, so that players will be able to feel elements like wind and water as they interact with the environment.
Cosmonious High releases as a PSVR 2 launch title on February 22.
Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue brings the viral flatscreen franchise into VR, launching on PSVR and PSVR 2 at launch, alongside a same-day release on PC VR. Steel Wool Studios are handling development, after launching popular VR title Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted in 2020.
Pistol Whip is coming to PSVR 2 and bringing support for a bunch of the headset’s new features and capabilities. According to Lucas Sitanski from Cloudhead Games, the Sense controller haptics will you to “feel the rush of a bullet grazing your head, the clicks of reloading your gun, and more realistic vibrations when firing.” Pistol Whip will also support 3D audio on PSVR 2 and will feature faster load times and scene transitions thanks to the PS5’s solid state drive (SSD).
The PSVR 2 version of Pistol Whip will be a free upgrade for owners of the original PSVR version, available at launch on February 22.
Zenith: The Last City
The VR MMO Zenith will be available as a launch day title for PSVR 2. Since launching on other platforms earlier this year, Zenith developers Ramen VR have added a bunch of new content and changes to the experience, all of which will carry over to the new PSVR 2 version. This includes an overhaul of the new player experience, updates to graphics with “cripser textures and higher-definition models, lifelike grass, realistic shadows and lighting, and more.”
Zenith will also use PSVR 2’s headset and Sense controller haptic feedback, along with adaptive triggers for weapon effects. The PS5’s SSD will also improve load times by “2-5x on average compared to any other platform.”
The PSVR 2 version of Zenith will be available as a launch title, free for players who already own Zenith for the original PSVR headset.
After the Fall
After the Fall is coming to PSVR 2 at launch on February 22. Vertigo Games is adding support for Sense controller haptics and adaptive triggers in this version of the game. Plus, it will continue to support full cross-platform multiplayer, so PSVR 2 players will be able to play with other After the Fall players on any other VR platform.
For owners of After the Fall on PSVR, the PSVR 2 version will be a free upgrade.
An underrated gem on Quest, Tentacular will make its debut on PSVR 2 next year with support for adaptive triggers and haptics on the headset and Sense controllers. It will also implement eye tracking functionality across the game, allowing you to use your eyes to interact with La Kalma residents and the game’s menus.
One of PSVR 2’s more surprising launch games, Sony recently confirmed a reboot of Fantavision is on its way. Originally a PS2 puzzle game by the now-defunct Japan Studio in 2000, Fantavision 202x is being developed by Cosmo Machia. You’ll catch fireworks of the same color and shoot them into the night sky in Fantavision 202x, available as a launch day title for PSVR 2.
Kayak VR: Mirage
Kayak VR: Mirage first appeared on PC VR earlier this year, offering a stunning adventure sim with asynchronous multiplayer. Now, developer Better Than Life is bringing Kayak to PSVR 2 next. While it was initially unclear if it would arrive at launch for PSVR 2, that’s now been confirmed in a recent PlayStation Blog post.
Horizon might be the first game Sony announced for PSVR 2, but Runner developer Truant Pixel announced its intention to release on the platform nearly a year before that. This is an anime-inspired biking game in which you speed down futuristic highways fending off enemies with dual-wielding weapons. It’s got gorgeously animated cutscenes and is also expected to launch on Quest 2 and PC VR. Perhaps not a raw display of PSVR 2’s power, then, but a good indication of what you can expect from indie development on the headset.
The long-anticipated sci-fi title from Iris VR has been promising to join the line-up of PSVR 2 games for years now. Low-Fi is designed to be a futuristic life-simulator inspired by the likes of Blade Runner in which players can make their own choices about how to proceed. It’s been in early access on Itch for a few years, with the developer continuing to bolt on new features. Hopefully 2022 will see the launch of the full version of the game on PSVR 2.
Samurai Slaughter House
Another indie studio that’s been very quick to confirm it’ll join the list of PSVR 2 games, Samurai Slaughter House is a bloody melee combat game with a black and white art style and physics-based fighting. The game’s also planned for PC VR and Quest 2.
This upcoming action-adventure platformer from Polish studio Played With Fire will see you take control of two protagonists at once in 2023. We tried the Quest version of the game out earlier this year, which offered an interesting combination of platforming and roomscale gameplay,

Having started life as a PSVR-exclusive shooter with support for the Aim controller, Alvo was one of the first games to confirm it’ll make the jump to PSVR 2. This is a rewarding modern-era shooter inspired by the likes of Counter-Strike. The Aim controller might not be directly supported anymore (Sony hasn’t made any comment on compatibility), but the game’s already up and running on Quest 2, so expect a similar control scheme to that version.
Sinn Studio’s melee combat simulator Swordsman VR will be a launch day release on PSVR 2.
2MD: VR Football Unleashed All-Star
Nearly three years after 2MD: VR Football arrived on Quest and PSVR, Truant Pixels confirmed through PSVR Without Parole that a sequel, 2MD: VR Football Unleashed All-Star, is coming to PSVR 2. While there won’t be a free upgrade for owners of the original game, there will be a discount of “around 60-70%.” No release date has been confirmed, but Truant Pixels is aiming for PSVR 2’s launch.
Across The Valley
Across the Valley is a new VR farming simulator from FusionPlay, where you’ll maintaining crops and keeping the livestock happy. Announced at the Upload VR Showcase Winter 2022, we’ve only had a brief announcement trailer so far, but it’s coming to both PSVR 2 and PC VR in 2023.

Following a brief teaser at Meta’s annual Connect conference, Skydance Interactive confirmed its next game, Behemoth, is also coming to PSVR 2. Behemoth sees you fighting monolithic beings in the face of a looming threat. Described as having “brutal yet tactical VR combat,” that should arrive in late 2023.
Developed by Vinci Games, Blacktop Hoops is an arcade-style basketball game. Promising a full single-player campaign, online multiplayer, and more, it’s currently in open alpha testing on Quest and Steam. However, a PSVR 2 release was confirmed by the developer via Reddit last year.
Do Not Open
Originally planned for the original PSVR headset in 2021, Do Not Open released for flatscreen players on PC and PS5 last year. As seen on the official website, developer Nox Noctis confirms PSVR 2 support is coming, dropping Sony’s older headset. However, it’s unclear if this will be a free update to the existing game or require a separate purchase, and a release date remains unknown.
Following a Quest release last February, developers Garage51 recently announced that Drums Rock is coming to PSVR 2. An arcade-style drumming game, this utilizes PSVR 2’s headset vibration, haptic feedback, and eye tracking. There’s no confirmed release date at this time.
Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate
Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate, an ongoing episodic trilogy from MyDearest, is jumping onto PSVR 2. The third entry in the Chronos Universe, following Tokyo Chronos and Altdeus: Beyond Chronos, this adventure sees you playing detective after the city’s founder is suddenly murdered. We’re still awaiting news on Episode 3’s release date, but Episode 1 and Episode 2 will both be available at launch.
Galaxy Kart is one of PSVR 2’s confirmed racing games. Developed by VRMonkey, that arrives in Q1 2023, and they released this outline on Steam:

Green Hell VR
Following a Quest and PC VR launch across 2022, Green Hell VR is officially coming to PSVR 2 in 2023. While the initial announcement was unclear about which specific headset was being supported, developer Incuvo later confirmed this survival adventure is targeting Sony’s latest headset.
Kizuna AI – Touch the Beat!
First released in 2020 on Quest, Kizuna AI – Touch the Beat! returns as another PSVR 2 launch game.

Notably, Kizuna launches for the original PSVR too in April 2023, though cross-buy support remains unconfirmed.
Medieval Dynasty proved popular when its flatscreen PC release launched in 2021, but developer Render Cube isn’t stopping there. As revealed in a Polish interview, that’s being ported to both Quest 2 and PSVR 2, and Render Cube’s creating a version designed specifically for VR. No release date has currently been given.
Moss and Moss: Book 2
Following a PSVR, PC VR, and Quest launch, confirmation that the Moss series would appear on PSVR 2 seemed inevitable. Developed by Polyarc, both fantasy adventure games will release for Sony’s new headset at launch, offering visual improvements, haptic feedback, and adaptive trigger support. There’s no cross-buy if you already have them on PSVR.
Pavlov, the popular VR multiplayer shooter, was one of PSVR 2’s first confirmed games back in 2021. While there’d been few updates on this port ever since, that’s now been confirmed as an official launch game for PSVR 2 in a new PlayStation Blog post. Developer Vankrupt Games previously confirmed there’s crossplay support with the Quest version, Pavlov Shack, but not for the PC edition.
As seen during the UploadVR Winter Showcase 2022, Survival Nation is a new outdoor adventure sim with zombies. Promising “hunting, scavenging, surviving a bear hunt, and more,” Wenkly Studio’s upcoming game only has a vague 2023 release window on PSVR 2 right now.
The Exorcist Legion VR: SIN
It’s been over a year since Fun Train’s survival horror follow-up to The Exorcist: Legion VR was announced. Originally targeting a late 2022 release, The Exorcist Legion VR: SIN will now release in the second half of 2023 with online co-op and single-player support.
The Last Worker
We’ve known for some time that The Last Worker is heading to VR. Featuring a notable cast that includes Zelda Williams, Jason Isaacs, and Tommie Earl Jenkins, Wired Productions confirmed this narrative adventure game is getting a PSVR 2 port in its recent trailer. We don’t have an exact release date yet, but that’ll launch in early 2023.
The Tale of Onogoro
Announced within a batch of PSVR 2 titles from Japanese studios, The Tale of Onogoro comes from Amata K.K, taking you to a mysterious parallel world. Teaming up with a shrine maiden, Hal, you’ll need to defeat five beasts that terrorize this land. The game will release as a launch title for PSVR 2 on February 22, with a release for the original PSVR to follow in winter.
The Twilight Zone VR
Previously released on Quest 2 last July, The Twilight Zone VR is heading for PSVR 2 next, though Fun Train hasn’t announced a release date. Split between three stories, each penned by different writers, this adventure spans between different genres, including horror and science fiction.
Undead Citadel’s been in development since 2018 but until recently, there’d been little news about when we’ll finally see it. As spotted by PSVR Without Parole, developers Dark Curry announced via its Discord server that Undead Citadel is scheduled to arrive as a PSVR 2 launch title.
Developed by OlivierJT, Volcanic Core promises vehicular combat in a musical universe. Currently targeting a PSVR 2 release in Q1 2023, you can find its description from the official website below:

Song In The Smoke: Rekindled
Confirmed in EDGE Magazine issue #380, 17-Bit is remastering its hit survival game as Song in the Smoke: Rekindled for PSVR 2, available at launch on February 22. Alongside haptic feedback support, PlayStation Blog confirms this contains an “all-new free jump and clamber mode completely unique to PSVR 2.” Cross-buy support is also confirmed for those who originally bought Song in the Smoke on PSVR.
Before Your Eyes
A game that revolves around blinking to move onto the next scene is a perfect fit for PSVR 2’s eye tracking. Joining the launch day line-up, Before Your Eyes is an emotional, heartbreaking adventure from Skybound Games, which tracks your blinking to continue the narrative.
Creed Rise to Glory: Championship Edition
Nearly five years since it first arrived, Creed: Rise To Glory is back once again for PSVR 2 with a Championship Edition. For this latest release, Survios is promising “brand new game content, modes, and settings to create a more immersive and personalized experience for new and seasoned Creed players alike.” A reworked online PvP mode is also confirmed, bringing “optimized matchmaking” and crossplay support.
NFL Pro Era
NFL Pro Era dropped onto PSVR and Quest last September, so it’s not too surprising to see it confirmed for PSVR 2. Offering a free next-gen upgrade for existing owners, we don’t know what’s changed from original release yet, but you can read the full description below:
Now’s your chance to be QB1 of your favorite NFL team with NFL Pro Era, the first fully licensed NFL and NFLPA virtual reality (VR) game. Utilizing real-time game data, NFL Pro Era brings the bright lights, team chants, and thousands of screaming fans to your home in one of the most authentic and immersive first-person VR games ever.

Currently available on Quest and PSVR, Puzzling Places now makes the leap to PSVR 2, where you’ll put together puzzles through 3D jigsaws. New enhancements include sharper textures, eye tracking support when selecting pieces, haptic feedback support, and a 1000 piece puzzle. If you already own it on PSVR, this will be available as a free upgrade.
Originally a PSVR launh title, Rez Infinite now joins Sony’s new headset at launch once again. On PSVR 2, that comes with eye tracking for tracking and aiming at enemies, alongside haptic feedback from the headset and controllers. While an upgrade path is available, this one isn’t free and instead, it’s been discounted to $9.99 for PSVR owners.
Synth Riders: Remastered Edition
Synth Riders is already on most VR platforms, so it’s little surprise to see a Remastered Edition arriving on PSVR 2. Promising reduced loading times, updated visuals, and more, that’s another free upgrade for anyone who owns the PSVR version, and that also covers previously purchased DLC.
Tetris Effect Connected
Tetris Effect: Connected is back once again, joining an increasing list of PSVR games ports. First released in 2019, this spectacular puzzle game received its Connected update in 2021, and that’s now coming to PSVR 2 and PS5. Just like Rez Infinite, an upgrade path is available but it won’t be free. Instead, it’s discounted to $9.99 for PSVR owners.
The Last Clockwinder
First appearing on Quest and PC VR last year, The Last Clockwinder is an enjoyable puzzle game that made it to our nominations for Favorite New Quest Game of 2022. Here’s the full description, courtesy of PlayStation Blog:

Another PSVR launch game from 2016, Thumper is returning once again for PSVR 2, taking us back to this rhythm-action hellride. While Thumper doesn’t come with a free next-gen upgrade for original owners, developers Drool tout 4K visuals, 3D audios, and haptic feedback among its improvements.
What the Bat?
UploadVR’s Game of the Year 2022 is officially making its way to PSVR 2. A VR sequel to 2019’s What The Golf?, you’ll tackle a series of increasingly absurd challenges using bats for hands, and you can check out our full What the Bat? review for the Quest edition.
PSVR 2 Games: Rumored Games
These are possible PSVR 2 games that developers have either hinted at or seem very likely to come to the platform.
Farpoint became one of PSVR’s most popular shooters thanks to its reliance on the excellent rifle-shaped Aim Controller. The game had a full single-player campaign and a fun — if limited — multiplayer option, sending players to an alien world to fight spider-like monsters. Developer Impulse Gear recently put out another great shooter named Larcenauts for Quest and PC VR. Around that time, we asked the studio’s Greg Koreman about a possible return to the series.
He told us: “We definitely don’t have anything to announce at the moment but that is our roots and we’re very happy with what we did on Farpoint. And I think you look at that game and that universe and there’s absolutely a lot more to explore there.” Yep, it sounds like a sequel is very possibly one of the upcoming PSVR 2 games.
What must be one of the most hoped-for PSVR 2 games is a port of Valve’s stunning return to its flagship franchise from 2020. Alyx absolutely delivered on the AAA VR dream with a long, highly-polished campaign that really capitalized on the platform. Before launch in 2019, Valve’s Greg Coomer had this to say to PushSquare on the possibility of a PSVR port for the game: “We believe Sony’s VR platform has been a huge success for the medium, and we assume that lots of Sony customers would love to experience this new chapter of Half-Life.” Could we see Alyx arrive on PSVR 2 with this in mind?
PSVR 2 Games: Cross-Gen Games With PSVR 1 Support
There are games that are on both PS4 and PS5 already and have PSVR support on PS4, thus making them likely candidates for PSVR 2 games in the future.
Arguably the last truly huge PSVR release, Hitman 3 featured timed-exclusive support for the headset when it launched in January 2021. Not only could you play the entire game in first-person using the DualShock 4’s motion controls, but you could import the campaigns from Hitman 1 and 2 and play them there too. The timed-exclusivity window is now up, with VR support available on on PC too, with two-handed motion controls. It’s a very good indication that, when PSVR 2 drops, the PS5 version of Hitman 3 could add support for PSVR 2 as well.
Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil 7’s PS5 remaster shipped in 2022. It includes ray tracing support, improved framerates and integration with DualSense’s’ haptic feedback and resistance triggers. There’s been no confirmation of PSVR 2 support thus far but, given this remains one of the best games on the original headset, we’ll keep our fingers crossed. If PSVR 2 gets Resident Evil 7 and 8? We’ll be very lucky indeed.
Sony bought Horizon Call of the Mountain developer Firesprite in 2021, but the Liverpool-based team had been showing support for PSVR long before that. It created the fantastic timed-exclusive, The Persistence, first for PSVR. It’s a thrilling, procedurally generated survival horror game that established palpable atmosphere. The Persistence eventually found its way to other headsets and flatscreen platforms including PS5. Once the new headset’s released, it’s a solid bet that this will be one of the new PSVR 2 games we can enjoy on the device.
Kona is something of an oddity. It’s a first-person investigation game set in snowy Northern Canada. You look into strange events that have left a small town deserted and survive the blizzard. The PS4 and PC versions of the game got premium VR DLC that let you play the entire experience with a headset. A PS5 version arrived somewhat out of the blue with a free upgrade. Hopefully we’ll see this version also get PSVR 2 support once the headset arrives.
And that’s the current list of confirmed and rumored PSVR 2 games! What are you looking forward to? Are there any other titles you’re hoping get announced? Let us know in the comments below!
Editor’s note: This list was originally created and maintained by former UploadVR Editor Jamie Feltham. It was updated and taken over by Harry Baker from November 2022. Staff Writer Henry Stockdale also contributed to entries on this list.
