PSVR 2 games list: every PS5 VR game announced so far
Sony has said there will be over 20 PSVR 2 games at launch
We still don’t have a release date for Sony’s headset yet, but the list of PSVR 2 games continues to grow. We’re seeing a mix of PS5 games that are adding PSVR 2 support as an update, like Resident Evil Village, and those created solely with virtual reality in mind, such as Horizon Call of the Mountain.
More games will likely get PSVR 2 support in the future, as Sony will be keen to add as much value to its new PS5 peripheral as possible, especially if it costs the same as the first PSVR, which was $399 in 2016. Of course, once we get a PSVR 2 pre-order date, you’ll be sure to know!
Here’s the confirmed list of every PSVR 2 game we know is on the way, including trailers that show what we can expect when we don Sony’s new virtual reality headset.
Horizon Call of the Mountain 🗻
Horizon Call of the Mountain is a PSVR 2 exclusive and is being developed by Firesprite, a first-party developer that Sony acquired in September 2021. We saw a glimpse of the game at CES 2022, but new gameplay was shown during the State of Play June 2022 event.
It looks like Horizon Call of the Mountain will feature many elements of Horizon Forbidden West, such as battling Machines (or robot dinosaurs), underwater traversal, and exploring a variety of locations like the frozen wastelands. ❄️
Resident Evil Village 👒
If you thought Resident Evil Village was scary in 2D, you might want to grab a spare pair of underpants before playing the PSVR 2 version. Like Resident Evil 7 before it, Capcom confirmed that the haunting first-person action of Resident Evil Village is getting the full VR treatment — and there appear to be some tweaks to the gameplay such as duel-wielding.
I’m really not looking forward to revisiting House Benviento in virtual reality or being chased by the towering Lady Dimitrescu (and yet, at the same time, I am). 😱
No Man’s Sky 🧑🚀
No Man’s Sky getting PSVR 2 support isn’t surprising. The game already has PSVR support and works with other reality headsets on PC. However, the power of the PS5 and the countless technical improvements of PlayStation VR2 should make for a more immersive experience.
🏆 These are the best PS5 games you can buy right now 🏆
I still haven’t played No Man’s Sky, but exploring an almost infinite galaxy full of new planets and creatures in VR does pique my interest. The game has received numerous updates since its launch, which have rectified the less than stellar launch No Man’s Sky had in 2016. 📈
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners Chapter 2 🧟
The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners received a positive reception from fans and critics alike when it was released in 2020, and it appears that Chapter 2 builds upon the first game in almost every way, offering improved visuals, more zombies to slay, and hopefully some cameos from AMC’s long-running TV show.
The game seems to be aiming for a more light-hearted and fun-first take on dealing with a zombie apocalypse; hopefully chainsawing through hordes of the undead is as satisfying as it looks. 🪚
Resident Evil 4 😱
Capcom’s Resident Evil 4 remake will include some PSVR 2 content; however, it’s unclear exactly what this will entail. The original Resident Evil 4 is already available for VR, as the game was released on the Oculus Quest 2 in 2021. It remains to be seen whether we’ll be able to experience the entire game in VR, or whether it will have a specific VR-only mode. Here’s hoping it’s the former.
Regardless of how VR is implemented, the Resident Evil 4 remake is bound to be one of the biggest games of 2023. 🔪
Among Us VR 🕵️
The social deduction game where no one can be trusted is coming to PSVR 2. You’ll need to determine which player is the imposter before they can kill off the crew or sabotage the ship’s critical system. The imposter will need to stop the crew from completing their tasks or duping other players into believing that someone else is the one causing havoc.
Among Us VR is bound to be a big hit and should make the threat of being topped by the imposter even more of a nerve-wracking affair. The game will launch on PSVR 2 when the headset is released, according to developer Schell Games.
Ghostbusters VR 👻
Sony Pictures VR has confirmed that Ghostbusters VR is heading to its next-gen virtual reality headset. The announcement was made as part of Ghostbusters Day, which takes place on June 8 each year.
The Ghostbusters VR game sees players run their own ghost-busting HQ in San Francisco. You’ll be able to team up with up to three friends in co-op and tackle an extensive campaign featuring iconic equipment and plenty of mischievous ghosts.
We’ll continue to add more PSVR 2 games to this list as more titles are confirmed for Sony’s virtual reality headset, so check back often! You can also stay on top of every new release with our PS5 games 2022 list.
