Sony’s PSVR 2 could be getting a popular Oculus Quest 2 VR game, but it may take a year to play.
The PSVR 2 has been a headset teased for a while now. However, they have recently released news about being able to port the first-person magic and melee combat game from Oculus Quest 2, Blade and Sorcery to the PS5 VR headset. This news comes from the developers of the game, Warp Frog, who spoke about its possibility to be available on the latest PS5 VR system.
Warp Frog wrote in a FAQ by UploadVR: “We are really excited about PSVR2. PS5 performance is also on par with PC, which means in theory we could port the PC version of B&S without much difficulty, and possibly even without compromising graphics at all. It’s still too soon to make any announcements, but we are interested in porting B&S on PSVR2, as soon as it’s possible for Sony.”
The hype behind the game has been because of its latest update, Blade and Sorcery: Nomad, that is coming out on Oculus Quest 2 on Thursday, November 4, 2021. This was revealed during the Facebook Connect event last week.
Sony has not necessarily had an official, full release of their plans for their latest VR headset. PSVR 2 is just a placeholder name for now—also hinting that they won’t release the new headset until “holiday 2022.” The specifications and images of its design have been trickling onto the internet, but it is definitely going to be better than the original PSVR.
Unfortunately for current PSVR users, Blade and Sorcery: Nomad will not be able to play the game. Warp Frog mentions that the issue lies in the current capabilities of the PS Move motion controllers because the “tracking would not be great for B&S.”
This is somewhat still okay news for those thinking of buying the new PSVR 2 headset because it will be for the PS5, and currently, so many consumers are still searching for more stock of PS5 consoles. Hopefully, by the next holiday season, PS5 consoles will restock, along with the release of the new VR headset and Motion controllers that are compatible with Blade and Sorcery: Nomad.
