PlayStation VR2 arrived back in February, but with no backwards compatibility for Sony’s older VR headset, we’re looking at PSVR games that need PSVR 2 ports.
Alongside big hitters like Horizon Call of the Mountain, Gran Turismo 7 and Resident Evil Village, PSVR 2 is already home to some of the best PSVR games and experiences, like Moss and Tetris Effect. Better yet, some ports like Job Simulator, Song in The Smoke and Pistol Whip offer free cross-generation upgrades if you bought them for the original PSVR.
There are many PSVR titles we’d love to see leap onto PlayStation VR2, like Superhot VR and those published by Sony. Considering Meta acquired Camouflaj in October, Iron Man VR seems unlikely, while Firewall Zero Hour and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood either have an upcoming sequel or spiritual successor already coming for PSVR 2. Still, plenty of other excellent VR games are currently restricted to Sony’s older headset, and it’s time they had a second chance.
In no particular order, these are our top five choices for PSVR games that we’d love to see on PSVR 2.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
Resident Evil Village was one of the major PSVR 2 launch games, so we’re hopeful that Resident Evil 7 will eventually follow. While official VR support remains PSVR exclusive for RE7, Capcom remastered the flatscreen version of this acclaimed survival horror for PS5 last year, adding ray-tracing support, improved framerates, haptic feedback and resistance triggers. This remains one of VR’s scariest games, and we’d love to see it back with further enhancements.
Blood & Truth
PlayStation VR Worlds might have been little more than a PSVR demo disc, but the London Heist minigame remains a standout. Sony London expanded this into a full release with Blood & Truth, which sees you saving your family from a London crime boss. With its high production values and entertaining set pieces, we believe London Studio’s hit FPS deserves a second chance.
Wipeout Omega Collection
As the remake of a remake, Wipeout Omega Collection can feel overfamiliar for long-term fans, but it’s one of the best entries in this beloved sci-fi racing series. Elevated further through its optional PSVR support, Wipeout’s campaigns for HD, Fury and 2048 are all playable alongside multiplayer, and you can access three VR-exclusive ships. Omega Collection is highly polished, thrilling, and easily worth a second look.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission
Astro’s Playroom is an enjoyable showcase for the DualSense controller’s abilities on PS5, and we would love to see Astro Bot Rescue Mission back on PSVR 2. Initially featured in Sony Japan’s The Playroom VR mini-game compilation, Rescue Mission took this petite and adorable robot on a 3D platforming adventure to save his friends. It’s an absolute joy that remains the no.1 pick in our best PSVR games list.
Star Wars: Squadrons
Star Wars is already on PSVR 2 in Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge – Enhanced Edition, but we’d never turn down more adventures in a galaxy far, far away. Alongside Vader Immortal, EA Motive’s Star Wars: Squadrons also released on PSVR and provided something completely different. Swapping lightsabers for X-Wings and TIE Fighters, this space dogfighter comes with a full campaign, online multiplayer, and optional VR support. Considering EA ported Jedi: Fallen Order to PS5, we hope Squadrons will follow one day.
