PlayStation VR2: 13 new titles and launch lineup revealed

Back in November we revealed 11 titles coming to PlayStation VR2 in 2023, and today we’re excited to not only reveal 13 more amazing games to the PS VR2 library, but also confirm titles expected to arrive within one month of the February 22 launch.

We are currently tracking more than 30 games for the launch window through March*, including titles from popular IP like Horizon Call of the Mountain, No Man’s Sky, and Resident Evil Village. A free PS VR2 update for Gran Turismo 7 is also on track for launch day. A quick update from Polyphony:


We’re thrilled that Gran Turismo 7 will be a PS VR2 launch title! Through a free upgrade, for those who have already purchased Gran Turismo 7, players will experience all cars and tracks in VR like never before. GT7 in VR takes full advantage of PS VR2’s next gen features. With eye tracking and foveated rendering, players will experience stunning visual fidelity while racing in any of the 450+ cars. While 2-player splitscreen races are not supported in VR, all other races, including online races, will be available. From the Nürburgring to Tsukuba, tracks can be experienced exactly as they are in real life.

Now, let’s let developers introduce today’s newly revealed titles:

Puzzling Places

Puzzling Places brings relaxing and wholesome 3D jigsaw puzzling to VR! Put together hyper-realistic miniatures of beautiful places from around the globe.

The award-winning PlayStation VR title is coming to PS VR 2 with major enhancements such as: higher visual fidelity (sharper textures, 120 Hz, higher render resolution); eye tracking for enhanced piece selection; haptic feedback and adaptive triggers from PS VR2’s Sense controller; roomscale support (puzzle in a larger play area); and now includes a PS VR2 1000 piece puzzle!

Puzzling Places for PS VR2 launches February 22 and will be available in the PS Store for $19.99 / €19.99**, and is a free upgrade for players who currently own the PS VR version.

Thumper

Become a space beetle on a rhythm-action hellride in Thumper. The gameplay is fiendishly simple: tight controls, classic action, and breakneck speed. Combined with psychedelic visuals, a throbbing soundtrack, and adrenalizing boss battles, it’s pure rhythm violence.

On PlayStation VR2, the 4K visuals (2000 x 2040 per eye), 3D audio, and PS VR2 Sense controller’s haptic feedback deepen the immersion and monumental dread. Get ready to feel every satisfying thump and punishing crash. Thumper will leave you bruised, battered, and hungry for more.

NFL Pro Era

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. Step under center and see if you have what it takes to lead your team to a Super Bowl or play virtual catch with friends in your favorite stadium. Whatever you decide, the future of the game is up to you!

Tetris Effect

Over four years ago, we launched Tetris Effect on PS4 and PS VR. Reinventing a classic and delivering a whole new experience – one that you’ve never seen, heard, or felt before in any other Tetris game – wasn’t easy but the overwhelming positive reception motivated and pushed us further to evolve the title as ‘Connected’ with the multiplayer expansion. Today we’re excited to announce Tetris Effect: Connected is coming to PS5 and PS VR2 on February 22. With eye tracking enabled, you can enter the Zone  by closing and then opening your eyes. You can also feel key moments of the game and your actions through headset feedback and haptic feedback on the DualSense controller. These enhancements deliver a truly unique Tetris experience. The game is also playable on PS5 without a PS VR2 headset. Owners of the original PS4/PS VR game will be able to upgrade to PS5/PS VR2 for $9.99 USD / €9.99.
