Less than a month before the launch of PS VR2, Sony announced a new series of games present at launch. So, let’s summarize.
Before Your Eyes is a great narrative walk that was released on PC (non-VR) and smartphones a few years ago. The game has won numerous awards and should resonate with people who didn’t die inside. The PC version detected that the player closed their eyes while using the webcam and thus continued the story, so we assume that the PS VR2 version will use the eye tracking built into the helmet.
Kayak VR: Mirage is an adaptation of the SteamVR game about kayaking. There are zen passages, but for those who want to build their little hands, you can drive. It is also very good for VR game.
Pavlov VR has spent the last six years in Steam Early Access but refrains from pointing that out in the trailer. This is a multiplayer or co-op shooter against zombies.
What is a bat? coming to PS VR2 after PC and Quest. From the creators of What The Golf? It’s a silly and relaxing game that ends too quickly and smells like “made with Unity”.
Now let’s move on to the PS VR1 games that remade PS VR2 to take advantage of the lack of backwards compatibility.
Goodies (free update for those with PS VR version):
- Mysterious places, puzzles, but in 3D
- Song in the Smoke: Rekindled, Survival Action-Adventure
- Synth Riders: Remastered Edition Beat Saber with mustache
- NFL Pro Era
Brutes (we pay full price for the PS VR2 version):
- Creed: Rise to Glory – Championship Edition, good big mouth fuck as Survios knows how to do it. The base game ended in less than 2 hours, so paying full price for the remaster is a bad joke.
- Thumper did not have a PS VR1 version, but it was released on PS4, with a VR mode added to the PC version for free. Admittedly, we are talking about a small indie developer, but it would be cool to support his first fans.
Gangsters (paid update):
- Earth Infinite. €10 for the PS VR2 version. Seems expensive to me, but that’s probably because I’ve already bought Rez on Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox 360, Google Daydream (sigh…) and Steam.
- Tetris effect: connected. €10 for the PS VR2 version. This makes sense since it’s the same studio, but the PS VR1 version is still on sale for €40.
