PlayStation State of Play reveals two games coming to PlayStation VR 2: Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge and Demeo

PlayStation VR 2, the successor to Sony’s Virtual Reality headset from the previous console generation, will be getting two new games for the console. We don’t know much about the console other than the fact it releases next year, but we should be getting more news soon, as many internet reviewers are testing the system (hopefully we’ll get one some day). In the meantime, let’s talk games!


Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a Star Wars character? To make a name for yourself in a galaxy far far away? Well, now’s your chance, with this adventure inspired by the Disneyland attraction Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Initially released for the Oculus Quest in 2020, this version of the game will come to PSVR2 in 2023, with improved graphics for the more powerful console.


Demeo

From sci-fi theme park attraction to fantasy table-top game. Demeo is basically what would happen if you took Dungeons & Dragons and transplanted it in a virtual environment. The game is already out for Oculus Quest and Steam, and supports multiplayer, so you can play with your friends. The current version is cross-platform, so hopefully the PlayStation version will be as well when it comes out.

About PlayStation VR 2

As mentioned before, this is the second version of the PlayStation VR headset. The original was released in 2016 for the PS4, and had 2 displays with a resolution of 960 x 1080. Tracking was done with the PlayStation camera, and it used PlayStation Move controllers. It’s compatible with the PS5, but you need to request some additional hardware from Sony. Needless to say, it’s time for an update.

PSVR2, which is slated to release in 2023, has a number of improvements over its predecessor. The displays have been upgraded to OLEDs with a resolution of 2000 x 2040 each, and features eye tracking for your… well, eyes, as well as Inside-out tracking for positioning, so you don’t need a camera or sensors.

The headset also features haptic feedback, and you only need one cable connected to your console to get going. The controllers have been completely revamped, and are more in-line with what the rest of the industry uses.
