With release date
Pixel Ripped 1995 (October 3)
You travel back to the 16-bit era and take on the role of little David, who does nothing but sit in front of the TV and play on his SNES all day, much to the chagrin of his mother.
But there’s more at stake than a mother’s mental health: video game villain Cyblin Lord wants to take over the real world again, blurring the lines between video game and reality.
Pixel Ripped 1995 was supposed to be released in September, but was delayed until October. The PSVR 2 version is based on the PC VR original and features improved graphics and support for headset and controller haptics.
Waltz of the Wizard (October 3)
As a wizard, you’ll find yourself in a tower room experimenting with magical essences and spells, unleashing superpowers and mad spells.
The PSVR 2 version of the VR classic comes with an exclusive feature: asymmetrical couch co-op.
Ghost Signal: A Stellaris Game (October 5)
This sci-fi strategy game in the style of FTL: Faster Than Light got Ben hooked on Meta Quest.
The PSVR 2 version brings improved graphics, two additional ships, and a new, more relaxed difficulty level. The trailer shows the Quest version.
Red Matter (October 5)
Released in 2018, Red Matter takes place far in the future during a fictional Cold War. Assume the role of Agent Epsilon as you infiltrate a base of the Communist Republic of Volgravia on Saturn’s moon Rhea for the Atlantic Union. Here you’ll uncover the secrets of a top-secret research project. Red Matter set new graphic standards and combined clever puzzles with a mysterious story.
In 2022, the sequel Red Matter 2 was released, which expands on this formula and is one of the most graphically impressive VR games, especially on Playstation VR 2.
From October 5, you can also experience the first part with the VR headset, with improved graphics and controls. The trailer below shows the PC VR version.
