Sony has shared more details today on the launch lineup for its PlayStation VR2 headset, which will be released next month on February 22. Over 30 PS VR2 games will be available for the launch window including Sony’s flagship title Horizon Call of the Mountain, but gamers can also expect new titles and VR ports of existing games.
Gran Turismo 7, Sony’s flagship racing game for the PlayStation 5 will get a free PS VR2 update on launch day. Resident Evil: Village is the other big blockbuster game getting a free PS VR2 upgrade for owners of the PlayStation 5 version. Several existing PlayStation games are also getting a free PS VR2 upgrade such as NFL Pro Era, Pistol Whip, and Synth Riders.

Sony’s PlayStation VR2 is already available for pre-order for $549.99 on Sony’s PlayStation website. There’s also a bundle with the flagship launch title Horizon Call of the Mountain at $599.
To put things in perspective, Sony’s PS VR 2 headset is $50 more expensive than Sony’s regular PlayStation 5 in the US, which is the only market where the console didn’t get a price bump last year. The original PlayStation VR headset was priced at $399 when it launched back in October 2016, and it’s still compatible with the PS5 (though it won’t support PS VR2 games).
Sony is currently the only console maker to support VR games, and it does so with a wired headset that supports 4K HDR visuals, a 110º field of view, and 3D audio. Sony sold over 5 million units of its original PlayStation VR headset, and it will be interesting to see if the PS VR2 will be able to do better throughout this new console generation.
