PlayStation VR2 Lands Three Juggernaut Games, Including Resident Evil Village

by Barbara Hadden

Sony's State of Play livestream delivered plenty of fireworks in the form of notable game announcements. A few of these reveals are games designed exclusively for the forthcoming PlayStation VR2 headset. We still haven't gotten our hands on this highly anticipated device, and today Sony made the wait for this moment all the more difficult with the announcement that Resident Evil Village, The Walking Dead: Saints Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution, and No Man's Sky are all in development for it.

The footage for Resident Evil Village doesn't make the experience look much different, as it was already first person, but if it's anything like the other Resident Evil experiences, the headset will up the terror and immersion.

The Walking Dead gave us glimpses of using a chainsaw against zombie hordes, as well as other sharp instruments and firearms. Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment say the game is slated to release in late 2022 for PSVR2.

No Man's Sky looks absolutely stunning, but we'll have to wait to get our hands on it to see if it's any different than the PC version.
