Sony have lifted the lid on four games coming to the new PlayStation VR 2 system, including Resident Evil Village, The Walking Dead, No Man’s Sky and the previously announced Horizon Call of the Mountain.

Resident Evil Village was first up and the trailer showcased the fan favourite Dimitrescu Castle and showed Ethan Winters being subjected to a number of horrors by the vampire lady and her family. The PS VR2 version of Village will utilise the headset’s 4K HDR display, PlayStation VR2’s eye tracking, PS5’s 3D Audio to make this a more immersive and terrifying prospect. The battle system has been tweaked to match the dual controllers, each will represent Ethan’s hands.

The Walking Dead Saints and Sinners Chapter 2 – Retribution from Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment have shown gameplay footage for the next chapter in the VR series The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners. In Sony’s State of Play the game was confirmed to be coming in 2022, but this is for the original PS VR system. A PS VR2 version is in development and will be released whenever the headset launches next year.

Hello Games have confirmed a PS VR2 version of No Man’s Sky is in development. We’re not sure on the specifics just yet but from the look of the trailer it looks to be a major improvement over the original PlayStation VR version, at least in terms of graphic fidelity.

Horizon: Call of The Mountain is Sony’s big hitter to get players excited for PS VR2 and today we got our first look at how the game is shaping up. In Call of the Mountain, the attention shifts from Aloy to Ryas, a former Shadow Carja Warrior who hopes to redeem himself by investigating a grave new threat to the Sundom.

Along with a look at the single player footage, Sony introduced The River Ride experience. This is built specifically for players to acclimatise their way around the new virtual reality headset and the features it holds. Sony have said that friends and family as they watch along on a connected display.
