It looks like Polyarc’s cute platforming sequel Moss: Book 2 will tunnel its way to PSVR2 when the headset launches next year. While the developer didn’t outright confirm anything, it shared Sony’s release date news on Twitter, and added: “Can you think of a game that benefits from a two-controller setup?” It included a mouse, book, and a crossed swords emoji at the end of the sentence.
You can already play Moss: Book 2 on the original PSVR, but many were holding out hope for a port to the more immersive PSVR2. “Book 2 takes the time to tighten up a few lingering issues from the first title, while providing more of the incredible world of Moss, albeit on a grander scale,” we wrote in our 8/10 review. “It’s further proof that Polyarc is among the best developers working on VR.”
Hopefully there’ll be some kind of double-pack for PSVR2, combining both of Quill’s adventures so far. The original games were already so charmingly tactile, we’re really looking forward to seeing how the developer uses features like haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers in the new PSVR2 Sense Controllers.
Probably be 1 and 2 bundled
This would be brilliant. I have Book 2 but was waiting to see if it would be compatible with PSVR2.
Will be very happy if I can play this and Astrobot Rescue Mission.
@Americansamurai1 Hopefully we get PSVR2 ports of both Moss games, that'd be cool!
Yessssssssss, definitely gotta boot this up in the new headset. Thes games are easily some of the best in VR, love them!
YAASSSS. Even though Moss was one of my favorite PSVR games (and one of the best in general), I specifically avoided Moss 2 hoping I could play it somehow on the next gen set.
My wishes came true! Now I just pray VR2 is either backward compatible or they re-release Moss 1 on it.
@Shepherd_Tallon Dude...Rescue Mission remastered for VR2 is a MUST! Best VR game ever made imo.
But do we have to buy it again on VR2 lol
@invictus4000 I have Rescue Mission but I've not played it yet. Absolutely sinful, I know. It looks amazing.
I'll make time for it one of these days
I've been hoping for a retail release like the first one got.
@Shepherd_Tallon This and RE7 are probably the best gaming experiences in my entire life. Obviously, not the best games ever but that overall experience was second to none. I remember shaking my head in disbelief in some levels. You're in for a treat, mate.
@dschons Ah you're making me giddy thinking about it now 😂
I must say that the first time I tried the Last Guardian VR demo, it felt like playing PS1 for the first time after having spent my life before that playing 2D platformers.
@Shepherd_Tallon Thats crazy you haven't played it! Haha. But its also exciting knowing you still get to do that for the first time. Heck, maybe if you keep waiting it will be at launch on VR2.
I dont wanna be overly dramatic, but to me Rescue Mission was the Mario 64 of VR. The game that made me realize "Oooooh so THIS is what VR can be". Made me realize that VR doesn't just have to be gimmicky tech demos but actual full experiences.
@dschons Dude, 100% me too. I remember chuckling out loud at certain points because I just couldn't believe what I was experiencing. Lol
@invictus4000 I've heard it described this way before actually. Specifically as the Mario 64 of VR.
But yeah at this point I think I'll save both it and Moss Book II for the new headset. Even if it's just via backwards compatibility (assuming we get that) it will be good to have some truly great games to play on it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first game!
