Sony has officially shared the launch lineup for PlayStation VR2 which includes over 30 games, 13 of which are new titles. Previously, we knew about games like Horizon Call of the Mountain, No Man’s Sky, and Resident Evil Village coming to PS VR2. Now, we have confirmation of things like a “free PS VR2 update for Gran Turismo 7” which Sony notes as being “on track for launch day.” In addition, several must-play indie games are seeing releases on the platform as well.

For example, the critically acclaimed Before Your Eyes from Goodbye World Games will be available on PS VR2 at launch as well as titles like Song in the Smoke: Rekindled, Thumper, and The Last Clockwinder. Other must-play titles that’ll be available on PS VR2 at launch include Tetris Effect: Connected and Rez Infinite from the brilliant Tetsuya Mizuguchi.

        It's pretty great. Think CounterStrike in VR with a ton of great (and not-so-great) mods.

        If you enjoy counter-strike, it's fucking amazing. Like seriously some of the best gaming moments I've ever had in my lifetime.

        With that said, I really wish the dev(s) would focus on the seek and destroy gameplay (counter-strike) and ignore a lot of the other game modes that I feel don't add much value to the game.

          I like CS, nice!

          I think a saw a video on reddit of a Among Us mode? I'd prefer the CS modes yes

            It's got a high learning curve and a high skill ceiling, so don't get frustrated when you get owned for the first week or two. You would think your CS skill will translate to real life VR aiming but it doesn't lol. Map orientation does though.


            I've played with this guy a bunch back in the day, pretty sure I'm in the kill feed here. Similar to CS you'll want to get used to recoil and slowly aiming the barrel downwards when aiming. Fuck now I'm wanting to hop in.

      Is there going to be any Gamepass-like service for all these VR games? Sure would make investing in the limited-use VR hardware a lot more palletable.

        Starting from PS Plus Extra tier you get games, but PS VR2 ones no idea.

        Which games do you need to buy again? Many are getting free upgrades.

        Well they did eventually release psvr games on PlayStation plus so I hope they continue to do so or offer games on the higher ps plus tiers!

        Yeah, if the headset/controls end up being better than my index I probably will rebuy a lot of my faves!

      Before Your Eyes is an incredible narrative experience, and is something that will totally work for the style of gameplay, but it seems like a bad idea to port that game to VR imho; all the tears are gonna end up smudging people's lenses.

        This is why I need to proofread.

      If they don't surprise launch alyx or a new astrobot game with this then that's a big missed opportunity.

        A new Astrobot would be great, but what I really want is support for Dreams. I understand that it wouldn't be practical to port over existing experiences, but it would be a shame to have such a powerful, VR-ready creative tool already on the platform and not take advantage of it.

      Playing RE:8 in VR will be super fun.

      Nothing really stands out though. No system seller on the list.

        I grabbed RE:8 to get my horror fix, Horizon with the bundle, and have No Man's Sky and Gran Turismo to give me some open-ended gameplay to hold me over while I wait for more titles to release. I'd grab Zenith to have an MMO to play, but I'm really not a fan of the art style.

          My list is pretty much the same but I’m adding Pavlov

            I'll probably end up grabbing Pavlov again just because of the improved haptics. I'll be kind of sad to not have my gun stock, though.
