There's a big list of PSVR2 launch titles and PS5 updates for early adopters of the VR headset to play on launch day, and you can see them all in our All PSVR2 Launch Games guide. But what's there to look out for after 22nd February 2023? While Sony hasn't really revealed much beyond the launch window, there's the triple whammy of The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR and The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Chapters 1 and 2.
The former is out on 16th March 2023, and today a new video featuring a developer interview and new gameplay has been published. The on-rails experience places you in the front seat of a rollercoaster that just so happens to take you through some of the scariest scenes and scenarios from the Dark Pictures universe, and you've got a handful of guns to defend yourself with.
What looks particularly impressive is a section of track where a load of mannequins sync up with PSVR2's eye-tracking feature and move every time you blink. Haptic feedback in the headset will also be supported, simulating wind and other feelings.
While this is a spiritual successor to Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, it fits into the world of The Dark Pictures as a spin-off, with The Curator making an appearance. Will you be playing Switchback VR next month? Let us know in the comments below.
"Will you be playing Switchback VR next month? Let us know in the comments below"
No, because im a pu**y
This is going to be superb fun, I'm sure!
@get2sammyb Don't blink though.
It looks really cool maybe at a later date money, money im bleeding to much of it now with a game releases.
This looks amazing.. can’t wait for my first VR experience l!!
Already pre ordered (before it was delayed). Was an easy choice having had Rush of Blood and absolutely loving it (I know, the concept seems cliched, but it’s phenomenal fun).
euuuhhh no thanks. Climbing mountains has me scared already.
I don't do horror in 2D and I sure won't do it in VR, but it looks pretty great if you're into horror. The "dark ride" taken literally is a really cool concept.
(hums) "Gruloovia, Gruloooovia...."
Sony raided my bank account today for VR2. It’s officially on guys! Hype is off the richter! I’m nearly 40..starting my VR2 experience with Cities VR, Kayak mirage VR and ofc GT7
Like everything PSVR2, I can’t wait! This game looks amazing.
5 DAYS TO GO!!!
Exactly the same. Money joyfully given today, 40th birthday on the 25th. The best birthday present to myself ever.
@thefourfoldroot1 ha enjoy man. All we need to see now is an Alyx release date 👌
Meh. Alyx is OK, but it’s nothing special. The hype is just because PCVR died a death at the hands of Quest and it was miraculous to get a true high quality game that wasn’t dumbed down for mobile chipsets.
Then again, I never played any of the other half life games, so maybe it wasn’t for me.
Rush of Blood was one of the first VR titles I played after I got my PSVR1. Great game, and also good for beginners to VR, since you stay seated on the coaster tram all the time.
I'm guessing this is more of the same, so a good game for week 2 once you have your initial VR legs from Beat Saber, Super Hot or other stand-still games. Don't start out with Horizon, is what I'm saying!
@thefourfoldroot1 totally agree with you...I think most of the people who rave about Alyx haven't actually played it.It's a beautiful game but very narrow in gameplay design with not much of an upgrade system and its biggest sin is that its a half life game without being able to hit people with the crowbar.Its an 8/10 not the all saving game what psvr2 needs or else it will fail
@thefourfoldroot1 @Mikey856 same here. 40 on the 22nd (launch day 💪) and had the funds taken today. Looking forward to GT7 and most probarbly Kayak.
Oh Wow they have bought the weeping angels (Don't Blink) from Doctor who. Great use of the tech.
Also like @Kidfunkadelic83 a hard nope
I adore Rush of Blood and can't wait to play this when I eventually pick up a PSVR2.
For some bizarre reason I'm able to deal with horror in VR way more than on a regular screen.
@Kidfunkadelic83 @thefourfoldroot1 @Mikey856 you made me check and my money has gone too! Never thought I'd be so happy for all that money to go! Horizon, kayak, Gt7, Resi 8 and Moss for me first...then can't wait for Beat Saber, walking dead and Rush of blood!! Happy gaming chaps!!!
Yep, can't wait. I preordered this and a bunch of others yesterday, getting ready for the big day.
This is the big new VR game that I'm excited to play
@thefourfoldroot1 fair enough man, all I’ve heard is great things about it. Let’s see as I’m sure it’s coming, Sony and valve have done the deed we know that much 😎
@EnragedGibbon @Kidfunkadelic83 perfect day for a VR2 launch then. & happy gaming bro. I’m so excited I could pee, where’s my bag
@Mikey856 i just hope it turns up on launch day. Also nooted the 23rd and 24th off just incase 😂
@Kidfunkadelic83 perfect! Well I work 4 on 4 off and my 4 off starts 22nd so 🤞 here also
So far, it's my most anticipated PSVR2 game. Hope it turns out as good as it looks.
