It’s official — Sony not too long ago introduced specs for PSVR 2 and a brand new sport primarily based on the Horizon franchise to go together with it.
Whereas we watch for extra particulars on the headset design, pricing and launch window, we thought we’d run by just a few Sony-exclusive franchises that we’d like to see make the leap to PSVR 2 through the PS5 technology cycle.
These are all pure hypothesis — it’s a hypothetical wishlist of what we wish to see most! If you would like a listing of all the things confirmed and rumoured sport coming to PSVR 2, now we have that as properly.
Two honorable mentions earlier than we transfer on — the Uncharted and God of Battle franchises.
Each of those may very well be unbelievable in VR, however we’re a bit uncertain how they’d tie it in and what the gameplay would appear to be. These video games lean so closely on offering gamers with a third-person cinema-like expertise, so the preliminary gameplay hook to switch throughout to VR isn’t as clear.
That being mentioned, Sony are doing one thing related with Horizon Name of the Mountain, so perhaps it’s not such a stretch to think about the same therapy for Uncharted and God of Battle.
5. Little Huge Planet/Sackboy
After a trilogy of authentic Little Huge Planet video games and a current spin-off platformer, Sackboy: A Huge Journey, it might be cool to see the franchise add a VR sport to the gathering.
Given the Sackboy launch on PS5 went a bit below the radar, perhaps Sony might replace the sport with a free and separate PSVR enlargement that channels their earlier PSVR platformer, Astrobot? It might characteristic authentic ranges alongside reworked mechanics that benefit from VR, which might be a pleasant solution to increase the unique launch whereas offering one thing contemporary for PSVR 2 house owners.
four. Ratchet & Clank
After a stunningly lovely outing on PS5 with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Aside, it might be superior to see Insomniac leverage its expertise with VR to create some form of Rift Aside-adjacent expertise with PSVR 2 assist.
What kind would a Ratchet & Clank sport soak up VR? No concept, however it might be cool to see — particularly for those who might witness the jaw-dropping graphics from Rift Aside in a VR headset. And we’re certain the builders might prepare dinner up loads of creative new weapons to wield.
three. Ghost of Tsushima
Whereas this nearly falls into the same class as God of Battle and Uncharted, Ghost of Tsushima maybe holds a bit extra potential for an incredible PSVR adaptation.
Think about a brand new, made-for-VR Tsushima launch that focuses on first-person stealth and lightweight samurai fight, whereas conserving the completely beautiful and show-stopping artwork type from the unique 2020 launch.
It’s doable that builders Sucker Punch are engaged on a sequel for PS5 already and we all know Sony needs to push for its upcoming AAA PS5 experiences to incorporate VR assist. If the sequel is comparable in type to the primary, then it in all probability wouldn’t lend itself to a Hitman three situation the place your complete sport helps each conventional and VR modes. Nevertheless, a separate PSVR-focused mode may very well be a number of enjoyable.
2. Gran Turismo 7
Out of all the things on this listing, Gran Turismo 7 maybe has essentially the most probability of supporting PSVR 2 in some kind. Not solely does the style and gameplay lend itself to VR fairly simply, however collection creator Kazunori Yamauchi didn’t say no when questioned final yr.
To be honest, he didn’t say sure both — he mentioned the staff wasn’t in a position to discuss PSVR but, in some way. The sport is about for launch in March on PS5 — we’re hopeful that an replace with PSVR 2 assist would possibly arrive later down the road. Or on the very least, one thing a bit larger than Gran Turismo Sport’s restricted time path and AI race modes for PSVR would match the invoice as properly.
1. Insomniac’s Spider-Man
Given the Spider-Man fervor throughout all media in the previous few years, it might be fairly stunning if we by no means noticed some form of Insomniac Spider-Man launch for PSVR 2 within the subsequent few years — particularly given the studio has labored with VR earlier than.
We all know that Spider-Man 2, Insomniac’s PS5-exclusive sequel to the 2018 hit, is in improvement. Nevertheless, including PSVR 2 assist to your complete sport appears unlikely. Insomniac might as a substitute choose so as to add a mode (or perhaps a separate, standalone launch) that permits you to play a brief and targeted expertise as Spidey utilizing PSVR 2, akin to Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham VR.
Even only a definitive, polished minigame that permits you to swing round Manhattan as Spider-Man can be unbelievable — many others have tried to do one thing related, each formally and unofficially.
