Sony unveiled a number of upcoming PlayStation VR 2 titles at its State of Play event today. These include The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution, a new installment in Skydance’s popular virtual reality title.
Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment have revealed a new trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution and confirmed the upcoming release of the game for PSVR and PSVR 2.
The Skydance Interactive development team aims to provide better immersion through improved graphics and support for haptic feedback.
The trailer offers viewers a glimpse of the cruel, stray-infested streets of New Orleans that left them behind in the first chapter when new factions vying for power rose up to help or hunt them down. You can watch the latest trailer here. The original title was released in May 2020 and highlighted physics-based combat, an original storyline, and an immersive survival-crafting system. It was the most downloaded PSVR game upon its release.
Chapter 2: Retribution serves as a continuation of the original title’s story, and players who continue their journey on PSVR will feel the full impact of their actions as they once again take on the role of the tourist.
Sony also said that some unspecified PSVR 2 content is in the works for Resident Evil 4, which is getting a remake that will be out in March 2023.
Resident Evil Village is also coming to PSVR 2. No Man’s Sky is coming as a free upgrade to PSVR 2.
And Sony’s Guerrilla Games showed gameplay for Horizon: Call of the Mountain for PSVR 2. Sony hasn’t said when PSVR 2 is coming, and it hasn’t offered dates for any of the games.
