    PlayStation launches PS VR2 with 13 games and more to follow

    PlayStation has revealed the launch lineup for the upcoming VR2 headset. When the headset releases on February 22, there will be 13 games available to play. These include single and multiplayer titles across a variety of genres, some of which have never launched on PSVR before. The company also addressed its CES claims of 30 launch titles, saying the headset will have up to 30 games available to play within a month of release.

    Several of the games launched for PS VR2 were available for its predecessor – the headset itself is not compatible with all PSVR titles. One of the titles is Creed: Rise to Glory Championship Edition, an enhanced version of its original PSVR counterpart. Other games have been upgraded for the new system, with developers offering upgrades for PS VR2 owners. Unfortunately, not all upgrades are free. These include:

    • Puzzling Places (free upgrade for PSVR owners)
    • Song in the Smoke: Rekindled (Free Upgrade)
    • Synth Riders Remastered (Free Upgrade)
    • Rez Infinite (paid upgrade)
    • Tetris Effect (Paid Upgrade)
    • Thumper (no upgrade)
    • NFL Pro Era (no upgrade)

    Several other titles will debut on PSVR from other services. Before your eyes, Kayak VR: Mirage, Pavlov VR, What the Bat? and The Last Clockwinder have all launched on other platforms. In addition to the VR native titles, Polyphony Digital is also rolling out a VR update for Gran Turismo 7, making it the honorary 14th launch title for the new headset.

    PlayStation has also released a list of the games expected to release between the launch of the VR2 and March 22.
