Watch all the PS VR2 trailers Sony released during State of Play
Highly anticipated: Sony held its State of Play presentation on Thursday. This edition featured a variety of information, including reveals about a release date for Resident Evil 4 Remake, Street Fighter 6, and Final Fantasy XVI. It also had updates for the delayed cyberpunk cat game Stray, Marvel’s Spider-Man for PC, and a handful of independent announcements.
Sony has devoted a fair amount of time to PS VR2 news and trailers. Last week, Sony revealed to investors that it had at least 20 “major” IPs ready for a launch of PS VR2 titles. Other than dropping a few franchise names like Horizon, Gran Turismo, and Uncharted, the company didn’t offer much more.
However, yesterday’s presentation not only confirmed a few games we didn’t know existed, it also featured trailers for them. If you’d rather watch the full program, we’ve got it above in the bear. For those who just want to see the good stuff in VR, keep reading.
Resident Evil Village
While there’s previously been no indication that Village will be coming to PS VR2, it’s no surprise. Capcom ported Resident Evil 7 to the PSVR, and it was so successful and scary that no one even got to finish it (kidding, but I couldn’t). Like RE7, the base game has VR support, meaning if you already own Village, you’ll get the VR mode for free. Bargain!
Saints & Sinner Ch. 2 — Retribution
The Walking Dead is back with a sequel to PSVR survival horror game The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. The first game was a solid VR title for those who wanted to mow down hordes of zombies or sneak past them. Finding supplies was a big part of the first game, so it’s safe to assume that Chapter 2 contains more of the same. However, judging by the trailer, the map could be much bigger.
No Man’s Sky
No Man’s Sky wasn’t a big surprise either. Hello Games already added PSVR support to its ambitious Space Opera in 2019. That it’s updating the VR mode on the PS VR2 is a gimmick. The trailer didn’t mention if it would be a free update or a paid DLC, but if you’ve been playing the game for a really long time, you know that HG’s ethos with No Man’s content Sky is: “Everything is free”.
Horizon Call of the Mountain
This one, we already knew, was coming. It was the only title specifically mentioned by Sony to investors, but it was nice to see a trailer. The teaser reveals gameplay and snippets of the story to give you a taste of what’s to come. Alongside Call of the Mountain, Guerilla Games has announced a “major” update to Forbidden West. The patch includes New Game+, improved visual fidelity in performance mode, new outfits, skill point reset, “Ultra Hard” difficulty, and more. This patch is available now.
Although Sony doesn’t have a release date for PS VR2, if you watched the Saints & Sinners trailer carefully, it revealed that the game will be released in 2022. Since it’s a title Exclusive to virtual reality, the headset is also due to hit shelves this year. . My bet would be just in time for the holiday shopping season.
