In addition to the hardware itself, Eurogamer and the PlayStation Blog provide new details and b-roll for various PS VR2 titles, including Resident Evil Village VR and Horizon Call of the Mountain. Resident Evil Village VR is basically what it says on the tin – Capcom’s 2021 action-horror title in VR, more or less intact. The visuals look impressive and players are able to interact with things in a more hands-on way.

As for Horizon Call of the Mountain, it’s also a visual stunner, and more ambitious in terms of gameplay and interactivity. The game allows players to engage in combat with their bow, climb ropes and cliffs, swim, and get around using gesture-based movement. There also look to be a lot of little touches, like being able to dip your hand in a stream while taking a boat ride. Two other PS VR2 title being showcased by Sony, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition look more like your typical current-gen VR experiences, but Resident Evil Village and Horizon Call of the Mountain both appear to push the tech forward in impressive ways.

As mentioned, PlayStation VR2 launches in early 2023. You can check out the new headset’s basic specs here and some more detail of its unique features like see-through view and the broadcast feature here.
