Fireproof Games has dropped a brand-new version of its successful virtual reality escape room/puzzle experience, The Room VR: Dark Matter, for the PlayStation VR2.
Already available for Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, Valve Index, Vive Cosmos, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and the original PlayStation VR, it’s now ready for players on Sony’s new-generation VR headset and free as an upgrade to anyone who originally owns it on the original PS VR.
If you’ve never caught a game in this franchise before (the series is usually a mobile/PC experience but Dark Matter is the first virtual reality entry), it’s essentially an escape room experience based around increasingly-complex and unique puzzle boxes with a bit of a spooky and supernatural vibe and some great adventure and detective elements thrown in. The PS VR2 version takes advantage of the higher resolution and better overall display in Sony’s newer headset, as well as feeling a heap better to play thanks to the Sense controllers, so even if you’ve played it before there’s good reason to jump in again.
If that sounds like something you’d be interested in you can grab the game right now on the PlayStation Store.
