Who needs a real haunted house when you can put up a fake haunted house in your face? If you own a PlayStation 5, stepping into a digital realm will soon be a lot easier. At today’s State of Play showcase, Capcom unveiled its 2021 horror game Resident Evil Village will be available for PSVR2 – know when the hardware is actually available.
First Revealed (well, officially) in January, the PSVR 2 is Sony’s second iteration of its proprietary virtual reality hardware. In line with all the other technological advancements between Sony’s console generations, it’s capable of a pretty impressive performance. The panel refresh rate is 120Hz for the games that can support such frame rate and it displays games at 4K on an OLED screen.

As for games, yes, Resident Evil Village is the big one. The first party marquee is horizon call of the mountain
In an investor filing earlier this year, Sony said 20 games are planned for PSVR2’s launch window. Here are two more games on the way as featured in today’s showcase:
- That’s not all zombieing on the road to PSVR2. The Walking Dead: Sins and Sinners Chapter 2, a first-person game about killing a bunch of undead and trying not to become undead yourself, is also coming to VR. No release date.
- space exploration game Nobody’s heaven is get a switch port later this year, which will be followed by a full VR version for PSVR. No release date here either.
Sony has not announced a release date for the PSVR2. I’m also sorry to be the bearer of bad news for those who understandably have yet to secure an elusive PS5, but the hardware will not work with any PlayStation 4 model.
