Blood & Truth is one of the best PlayStation VR games, and it’s been given some mouth-watering enhancements on PlayStation 5 via backwards compatibility. In this tech analysis, NX Gamer showcases the sharper resolution, better assets, and boosted framerate, all of which help to make this must-play even better on Sony’s next-gen console.
The company hasn’t exactly flooded its new system with updates to legacy PSVR games, but we’re really happy to see this Cockney caper get a decent boost on the superior system. It’s well worth playing if you haven’t already.
That's great, makes me happy I haven't finished it on ps4 yet lol
This is good, but I’m really looking for an indication of whether Skyrim VR us less of a blurry mess. I know Bethesda won’t do an actual patch now (thanks MS!) but if there was dynamic res this might be helped in back compat.
This is great I need to return to this to get the platinum so I’m glad it plays better
Was literally the first thing I tried out when my PS5 arrived on Thursday.
Coming from a base PS4, this was a HUGE jump in quality for me! I could finally read signs in the distance and even see the skin pores on the hands! Certainly more immersed.
@thefourfoldroot I played Skyrim last night and it's sharper (albeit I am comparing to the base PS4 rather than Pro).
There's a YouTube channel called "PSVR without Parole" which has a few videos looking into a bunch of games and explains differences if any between PS4 Pro and PS5. including Skyrim, Squadrons, Resi 7, Iron Man etc
I can’t wait to try this
Good to know. I still need to order the adapter, but a little disappointed that I can’t watch 3D movies in PSVR on ps5 like I can on PS4
Thanks, sounds like a handy resource.
It would be good to see a definitive list of actual, patched improvements for PS5 over time. There are probably a fair number of people jumping from base model PS4 to PS5 and it would be good to know which games have actually been updated (faster loading is clearly welcome, but ultimately not a major improvement), than hearing impressions based on witnessing some of the few Pro updates playing on PS5.
It is a shame that Skyrim VR will likely never see an update, although that was probably the case even before the Microsoft acquisition. Higher resolution and better texture filtering would go some way to improving the VR experience (it’s quite blurry on the Pro as well), although the slightly finicky Move controls will always be a stumbling block.
Such a great game!
Sadly Sony's messaging has been all over the place with PS5 VR support. I actually sold my PSVR when they announced only PS4 versions of games would be supported with few enhancements.
I'd love to bust out my Psvr on PS5, however that v1 control box doesn't support HDR signals iirc, and certainly both versions won't support hdmi 2.1.
As such as wish there'd be a processing box upgrade program.
I used to keep my VR processing unit plugged into the PS4 all the time, but with the PS5 it downgrades the data, it won't do 120hz with that plugged in, so I have to keep reconnecting the entire thing if I want to play it. Such a hassle.
@AndyKazama Same with the 2nd box, pal. No 120hz support. Really disappointing.
@Vacuumator I'd love a consolidated list too!
I have jumped in and out of a few VR games just to see the difference.
Some, such as Paranormal Activity, has absolutely no difference at all compared to playing on base PS4 which surprised me.
But yeah, as I skipped the Pro, aside from Blood and Truth, I cannot tell if what I am seeing for these now cleaner games are just essentially those Pro versions rather than further boosted for PS5.
Agree it's a shame that Skyrim will unlikely get a further patch.
@oldschool1987 no hdr in box one meant I get my old PS4 just for vr, instead of consolidating all my games to my pro
Brilliant update! Can't wait to try it out
@AndyKazama fair enough
Nice analysis. I much prefer NXGamer to Digital Foundry personally.
@Mpquikster I completely sympathize with this. I love PSVR when I use it, and yet I haven't touched it in a year and a half because of the same reason. I did have box v2 so it had HDR and could always be set up, but every time I had to use it I had to unroll the camera cable find a bunch of boxes to pile up to set the camera atop it....calibrate everything, set up the HMD, then put it all back away, which would always end up being a pile of expensive equipment falling all over...... the amount of hastle means I want to play it often, but rarely ever actually do. If they can do a PSVR2 without the camera requirement that would be a major plus right there.
