PlayStation VR2 Is debuting With Exclusive Horizon Content

2022 is upon us and with it comes the next generation of VR gaming. To nobody’s surprise, PlayStation is at the forefront with some new next-generation equipment in the form of the PlayStation VR2 and the PlayStation VR2 controller for the PS5.

Now the big question is, what are the upgrades? The PlayStation VR2 keeps a similar headset and hand controller set up but amped up. In no small part, thanks to the tech upgrades but also in part to the games being made for the PlayStation VR2. If Horizon Call of the Mountain is anything to go by then sign me up. But before we get into the games let’s have a look at the specs.

Horizon Call of The Mountain

The next piece of exciting news is Sony’s announcement for the next-generation headset is its first game. Set in the world of Horizon it’s called Horizon Call of the Mountain and it’s being co-developed by Guerrilla and Firesprite Games.

There isn’t too much information to go on with this game yet. But with Horizon Forbidden West coming in just a few weeks (February 2022). And the amazing success of Horizon Zero Dawn. It looks like Horizon can do no wrong and not going to lie it’s a huge draw to getting the PlayStation VR2.

As for the details of the game, we do know about Horizon Call of the Mountain will be set in the Horizon universe and tell the story through the eyes of a new character. Aloy will of course be making a cameo along with other familiar and unfamiliar characters. I’m looking forward to seeing just what’s in store for this adventure.

Horizon Call of the Mountain will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
