The PlayStation VR2 Is Getting PC Support This Year

Neat!

Tucked away in a recent PlayStation Blog post revealing a heap of new titles coming to PlayStation VR2, Sony has also revealed that it plans to add support for PC to its flagship VR headset at some point this year.

In doing so, it’d open up the gates for folks with a PC capable of running VR games to use the PS VR2 as their headset of choice, presumably without the need to even own a PS5. There’s a massive market for VR on PC and the PS VR2 is still one of the better headsets out there for comfort, display quality and features. It’ll also mean we might see PS VR2-specific features in existing PC VR games among other neat new developments.

The message within the larger post reads, “..we’re pleased to share that we are currently testing the ability for PS VR2 players to access additional games on PC to offer even more game variety in addition to the PS VR2 titles available through PS5. We hope to make this support available in 2024, so stay tuned for more updates.”

Aside from this, PlayStation also revealed five new games and a DLC pack coming to the PS VR2 in 2024, including some releases that are out today. Here’s what each is about according to the blog post:

Complete with online 2 player co-op, the thrilling campaign sees you reprise the role of a Deadhunter as they fight their way across war torn Europe doing battle with the zombie hordes. Choose your weapon from an authentic World War 2 arsenal including sniper rifles, submachine guns, pistols, and explosives as you lay waste to the undead and free Europe.

Soul Covenant | Out 2024

Today we’re happy to reveal new details and screenshots for our upcoming narrative action JRPG Soul Covenant that showcase one of its core mechanics: turning fallen comrades into weapons! In a near-future Japan that sees humanity fight for survival against a mech regime, you’re tasked to take on hordes of encroaching enemies and colossal, powerful foes in tense, melee-based combat. You’re not alone though. You’re but one of a four-strong troop, joined by three other avatars (in the form of NPCs or controlled by other players). If a comrade falls, they can still contribute to the battle, as their remains transform into a weapon that can be equipped, giving you access to axes, dual swords, chainsaws and more. Acquired weapons can be strengthened further through items dropped by downed enemies. With each one offering two different forms, you have a growing number of versatile combat styles with different reaches and power sets to try out. It’s why in the world of Soul Covenant, troops share the very specific phrase before heading into the battlefield: ‘I’ll make sure to pick up your bones’.

Dive back into Arizona Sunshine 2 and face off the toughest Freddies by choosing the Corgi as your preferred four-legged sidekick through the newly added Cosmetics Screen.

It’s gritty, it’s intense, and it’s also free of charge.
