All the PlayStation VR2 Announcements From Sony’s State of Play

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) State of Play presentations have become the company’s de facto way of making its PlayStation announcements, rather than event linked press events. The most recent showcase was jam-packed with exciting details, most notably a selection of virtual reality (VR) titles for PlayStation VR2.

No Man's Sky - PSVR2

If you did somehow miss all of the buzz surrounding what VR titles have been added to PlayStation VR2’s roster then take a look below.

Resident Evil 4 VR

The Resident Evil series has gone from strength to strength in VR in recent years, with Resident Evil 4 revived last year for Meta Quest 2. The State of Play event revealed that a PlayStation 5 edition is due for release on 23rd March 2023, showcasing the title in all its next-gen glory. Then, right at the end, was a PSVR2 tease, simply saying that “PlayStation VR2 content also in development”.

No indication of whether that’s full support or for bonus “VR” content as some PlayStation titles have done in the past. However, the PS5 version won’t be a 100% port of the original as Capcom will be: “reimagining the storyline of the game” whilst “modernizing the graphics and updating the controls.” So it won’t purely be a pretty makeover.

Resident Evil Village

There was more Resi good news, this time with Capcom confirming the very latest instalment, Resident Evil Village will be getting official VR treatment. Resident Evil Village will fully support PlayStation VR2, taking advantage of the headset’s eye tracking, motion controls and other features.

That means dual-wielding weapons, so you can switch up strategies by mixing between weapons. This was teased in the reveal trailer but no date was mentioned.

Horizon Call of the Mountain

Firesprite and Guerrilla Games teased Horizon Call of the Mountain earlier this year with a very brief trailer. Now, the teams have given gamers a much deeper look at the upcoming VR experience, the creatures they’ll encounter and the locations that await.

With SIE previously stating it wanted to move away simple “VR experiences” and from the gameplay trailer shown Horizon Call of the Mountain looks set to do just that. The PlayStation Blog confirms there will be a main story as well as an “immersive River Ride experience” that can be enjoyed by others watching on a connected TV.

No Man’s Sky VR

And for those eager to spend countless hours with their PlayStation VR2 on, Hello Games is working on bringing its popular space exploration title No Man’s Sky to the device. As it’s already available for PlayStation VR, the PSVR2 edition will: “take that sense of immersion and believability up by several major notches,” notes Hello Games’ founder Sean Murray. 

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution

Having dropped the first teaser gameplay trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution back in March, Skydance Interactive and Skybound Entertainment released new footage of the zombie survival adventure whilst confirming both PlayStation VR and PlayStation VR2 support.

Continuing the story of The Tourist surviving the walker-infested streets of New Orleans, the PSVR2 version will offer enhanced visuals and haptic feedback support. This sequel is coming to supported headsets in 2022, with the PlayStation VR2 arriving in 2023 – seemingly confirming the headset’s launch next year.  

SIE still hasn’t specified a release window or price for the upcoming headset but it’s looking more and more likely that 2023 will be the year. What has been detailed is the fact that 20+ videogames are currently earmarked for the VR devices’ arrival. As further details are made available gmw3 will let you know.

Meta Quest Gaming Showcase 2022: A Full Roundup

Returning for a second year, the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase was an event jam-packed with exciting videogame announcements for the headset. With brand new surprises, sequels and updates, the event proved that Quest 2 has a cracking lineup of titles in the works.

Resident Evil 4 – The Mercenaries

Stress Level Zero has finally revealed that its fourth VR project is Bonelab, a sequel to Boneworks. Building off of Boneworks‘ physical interaction engine, Marrow, Bonelab is an action-adventure title set within a mysterious underground lab. With physics-driven interactions forming a core part of the gameplay experience Bonelabs will also support player built mods to further expand the content. The game is expected to arrive for Meta Quest 2 and PC VR headsets in 2022.

NFL Pro Era

An officially licensed NFL videogame for VR, NFL Pro Era is all about immersing you in American football as a quarterback. Featuring all 32 NFL teams, the simulator will put you in command of your favourite team, choosing plays and listening to the chatter inside the huddle. NFL Pro Era will be coming to Quest and PlayStation VR in Fall 2022.

Espire 2

Digital Lode’s stealth combat title returns this November, giving you new ways to sneakily kill enemies without them even knowing you were there, or not, depends how you like to play. Espire 2 will feature two new mechanical units to control, one heavier and more robust whilst the other is smaller and nimble, great for staying undetected. In addition to the main campaign, Espire 2 will also include a co-op campaign with a story set between Espire 1 & 2.


Unveiled last year, the showcase provided a brand new trailer giving a better look at the upcoming Japanese role-playing game (JRPG). Developed by CharacterBank, RuinsMagus has players investigate the abandoned ruins below the prosperous town of Grand Amnis across 26 story-driven quests, facing powerful and fearless Guardians on route. RuinsMagus is expected to launch later this year.

Last but not least was the sneaky peek from Zuckerberg of a new game being worked on by nDreams (Fracked, Phantom: Covert Ops) and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality (SPVR), Ghostbusters VR. Set in San Francisco, Ghostbusters VR will support up to 4-player co-op as you and your friends try to rid the city of ghosts in this original adventure. No timeline for release has been given just yet.

First Trailer Drops for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution

Today’s Meta Quest Gaming Showcase has been filled with superb virtual reality (VR) content announcements and here’s another. Initially unveiled at the beginning of the year, Skydance Interactive has released the first (non-teaser) trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution.

The Walking Dead S&S Ch2

Continuing the story from the successful 2020 videogame, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution puts you back in the shoes of The Tourist – who’s becoming less of a tourist now – trying to survive the post-apocalyptic streets of New Orleans. There will be a new original storyline for fans to enjoy, alongside the same freedom of choice and visceral combat the videogame is known for.

Part cinematic and part gameplay, the new trailer starts with a very dramatic introduction and monologue from a “new and powerful threat”. Chapter 2: Retribution looks to be even more hardcore zombie survival than the last, promising more zombies and even fewer resources. As you can see from the second half of the trailer, there are tons of zombie’s heads to pop, whack a big knife in or as the first teaser image highlighted, a big ol’ chainsaw to wield.

Zombies were never the only problem to deal with in New Orleans, there are still warring survivor factions to either help or kill, completing side missions to unlock valuable items and recipes. Skydance Interactive hasn’t said what new craftables or items are set to feature in the sequel.

The Walking Dead S&S Ch2

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners became one of the must-have survival VR games when it launched two years ago, going on to add extras like the Aftershocks update whilst achieving $50 million in revenue. In its review of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners gmw3 said: “From the very beginning, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners offers a satisfying zombie experience that’s hard to match. Titles like Arizona Sunshine easily fill that need for straight-up arcade action, for when you want a living dead apocalypse with a bit more depth then The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is your new go-to videogame.”

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution will be coming to Meta Quest 2 and PC VR headsets in 2022. Other headsets are to be announced, so considering the original did make its debut on PlayStation VR, a PlayStation version may also be on the cards. Check out the new trailer below and when more details are available, gmw3 will let you know.

Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Chapter 2 Coming Late 2022, Featured In Meta Showcase

An accidental leak has revealed a new trailer for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 will debut at next week’s Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, and narrowed down its release window.

The Walking Dead VR subreddit caught a video that was publicly listed briefly on the Skydance Interactive YouTube Channel titled ‘TWDSS Ch2 Debut Trailer for Meta Gaming Showcase: Uncensored.’ The video has since been made private, but Skydance’s Saints & Sinners account confirmed the validity of the leak in the comments section of the post, saying:

Hello tourist. Your detective skills have been honed during your time in New Orleans. Sounds like you’ll all need to tune in to the Meta Gaming Showcase on 4/20 at 10am PST to learn more!

The video description in the screenshot posted to Reddit also reveals a rough release date – late 2022. While we previously knew that Chapter 2 would release this year, this gives us confirmation that we’re looking at later in the year and not anytime soon.

The description also only mentions that the game is coming to “Meta headsets.” Previously, Quest was the only properly confirmed platform, but that wasn’t to say others – like PSVR 2 – weren’t also on the horizon. However, given this trailer is being prepared for the Meta Gaming Showcase specifically, it’s no surprise that only Meta headsets are mentioned. We wouldn’t take this to be exclusivity confirmation just yet.

Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 was announced earlier this year. According to the phrasing of all the press materials, it looks like it won’t quite be a full-blown sequel, but still a standalone title that won’t require you to own or have played the first game. Kind of like a standalone expansion, rather than a full follow-up, then?

You can read everything we know so far about Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 here.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Everything We Know About The New Game

Rejoice! We’re getting an all-new installment in The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners series

Skydance Interactive has just announced The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution, a standalone follow-up to the original game that continues its story and follows the same protagonist, the Tourist.

And that’s about all the developer has officially confirmed so far – there’s no definitive release date or platforms but, from the sounds of it, this could be more of a standalone expansion than it is a full blown sequel. Needless to say, we’re very excited to see one of our favorite VR games return, but we can also pick apart some possible details for Retribution based on the ending to last year’s Aftershocks update.

Let’s go over those clues but, if you haven’t played Aftershocks, be prepared for some spoilers.

Is The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 A Sequel?

From the looks of it, this might not be a full-blown sequel to the original game. It is definitely a standalone title and you won’t need to have played the first game to experience this one. But the game’s press release avoids using the term sequel and, when we asked if that game could be considered the true Saints & Sinners 2, a spokesperson reiterated that it’s a standalone game, but didn’t use the word ‘sequel’ themselves. This, then, might be more of an expansion than a full follow-up.

New Enemy And Area?

So to start off, Aftershocks introduced a new mechanic to Saints & Sinners in which players could discover hidden clues using a new mode on their flashlight. After you’ve beaten all of Aftershocks’ missions, players could go on a scavenger hunt based on a few hints they were given at the end.

Following this through you’ll eventually come to the game’s Bastion map where, after using some special keys gained in the campaign, you unlock a mysterious safe house. This area is filled with grizzly details. It’s got writing scrawled all over the walls about people being guilty and enacting wrath.

There’s also a list from its occupier of people that ‘Betrayed’ or ‘Lied’ to them. They also keep tabs on people they consider ‘Murderers’, but there’s only one name on that list: yours.

It seems like Skydance is setting up a new antagonist for Retribution, then. Body armor in the corner of the room may give some hints to their appearance, too. Tonally the idea of someone getting revenge on you for murder fits with the Retribution name but we have to wonder who exactly the Tourist is supposed to have murdered? The original Saints & Saints was a very open game that let you pick and choose who you killed, if anyone. So will this be a specific character from the first game? Or is this new character simply out to get you for laying a finger on anyone in the original cast?

Not only that but there’s also a postcard offering ‘Greetings From The French Quarter’, one of the most historic districts of New Orleans, where the game is set. Chances are we’ll be able to explore this area in Retribution, then.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 Release Date, Price And Platforms

So far we don’t have an official release date for Saints & Sinners Chapter 2, but Meta’s social accounts have confirmed it’s coming in 2022. We also haven’t seen a formal announcement about platforms but, again, Meta’s confirmed it’s coming to Quest. Given the original game launched on both PSVR and PC VR, it seems a good bet it will end up on those platforms too, and we’ll hopefully see it on PSVR 2 as well. As for price? That’s not announced just yet.

And that’s about all we have to go on for now. Skydance does say that it will have more to share on Retribution later this year, and we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a PSVR and PC VR release, not to mention hopefully a version for PSVR 2.


Chapter 2 of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners Confirmed

Can you believe it, it’s been a whole two years since Skydance Interactive released The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, providing one of the best zombie survival experiences in virtual reality (VR). Today, to mark the occasion the studio has announced a follow-up, continuing the journey in Chapter 2: Retribution.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution will be its own standalone title but will continue the storyline from the original, Skydance Interactive confirms. You’ll once again step into the shoes of The Tourist and try to survive in the zombie infested streets of New Orleans.

Currently, the development team has revealed that this new chapter will feature new characters and new threats to deal with. But it’ll still retain elements that made the original what it was, like making those difficult narrative decisions.

“The past two years have been absolutely incredible for The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, and we’re grateful for the continued support from the player community who have helped make the game the success it is today,” said Chris Busse, acting head of Skydance Interactive in a statement. “We’re excited to announce Chapter 2, and we can’t wait to let players explore the new adventures that await them in the French Quarter and beyond.”

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners

If you’ve not tried the zombie game yet, gmw3 said in its review of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners: “From the very beginning, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners offers a satisfying zombie experience that’s hard to match. Titles like Arizona Sunshine easily fill that need for straight-up arcade action, for when you want a living dead apocalypse with a bit more depth then The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is your new go-to videogame.”

That’s not all Skydance Interactive had to announce today. The studio also revealed The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners has surpassed $60 million USD in revenue across PCVR, PlayStation VR and Meta Quest. The studio hasn’t indicated when the new chapter might arrive so for continued updates on Chapter 2: Retribution, keep reading gmw3.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2 Announced

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is getting an all-new standalone installment named titled Chapter 2: Retribution.

Developer Skydance Interactive made the announcement today around the second anniversary of the hit VR game’s release. There’s no trailer or images of the game yet but it’s being referred to as a “new chapter of the Tourist’s story”, confirming we’ll step back into the shoes of the protagonist of the original game. Key art does suggest players will be able to wield a chainsaw, too.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution Announced

To be clear, Retribution doesn’t sound like a full sequel to the original game but instead a follow-up story that can be played independently from the original release. Final release platforms haven’t been confirmed but, given the original game released on Quest, PSVR and PC VR, it’s a good bet they’ll arrive there (Update: It’s now been confirmed for Quest but other platforms are still pending).

We can decipher a few hints from the ending to Saints & Sinners’ recent Aftershocks’ update, though (spoilers for that update follow). Players that solved the update’s final trial stumbled upon what appeared to be the hideout of a new enemy that wants the Tourist dead. There was also reference to New Orleans’ French Quarter, suggesting players might be heading to an all-new area in this chapter.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2 Retribution

Saints & Sinners remains one of our highest-rated VR games to date, so we’ll gladly welcome more. Skydance also today confirmed that the game has now made $60 million in revenue since launch in 2020. Fingers crossed we might also see this new release arrive on Sony’s PSVR 2 headset in the future.
