The second game in our ranking is Resident Evil Village, a title released in 2021 but which will receive a PlayStation VR 2 update on February 22nd to be fully playable with the headset. Great news when you see the success of its predecessor, Resident Evil 7 on the first PSVR headset. Immersion with the haptic feedback from the headset should definitely give gamers the cold sweats. Especially since this new opus is full of more action and more enemies to face.

3The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR – 22/02/2023 (PSVR2)




This third game is also expected exclusively on PlayStation VR 2 for its February release. This is The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR.

This time you will embark on a dynamic roller coaster that combines shooting, action and horror in one of the settings of 17th century New England. The game will have a pretty crazy feature as thanks to the eye tracking of the PS VR2 headset, enemies will only move when you close your eyes. A perfect title to introduce VR and this new headset to your friends.

4Firewall Ultra – 2023 (PSVR 2)




Firewall Ultra is the last PSVR 2 exclusive of this top, but the game does not yet have an exact release date of 2023. This is the sequel to Firewall Zero Hour released on the first PSVR of the name and still developed by First Contact Entertainment. The multiplayer FPS sequel will use the adaptive triggers of the controllers, the haptic feedback of the headset and the eye tracking functionality of the PlayStation VR 2 for foveal rendering, but also to switch weapons simply by looking in a certain direction. The game itself still has few details, but that should certainly be resolved in the coming months.

The 9th game on our list is a bit of a surprise as it will be the first game exclusive to the Pico 4 standalone VR headset, which has only been available for a few months. And it’s a license well known to gamers that will lend itself to the game: Just Dance VR. No other information has been revealed yet, but virtual reality dance is a surprisingly underrepresented genre. The last game was Dance Cental released in 2019 on the Oculus headset.

10Behemoth – Release Unknown (PlayStation VR 2, Meta Quest and PC)




We almost wrap up this top 10 with a game that was announced just a few weeks ago, but which has already made our mouths water. This is Behemot, a virtual reality survival game developed by Skydance Interactive, to which we owe The Walking Dead Saints & Sinners games. You will play as a sick wanderer lost in the icy lands of the Forsaken. You will have to overcome the dangers of the environment, but also fight other warriors and imposing behemoths. The game isn’t confirmed for a 2023 release, but we’ll be sure to follow this game announced on PC VR, Meta Quest, and PlayStation VR 2.

11Assassin’s Creed VR – Batman VR – GTA Sans Andreas VR

We have already reached 10 games, but a small bonus, not to forget some other titles that may also be released this year, but whose release date remains mysterious!

We store three titles starting with GTA San Andreas VRannounced by the CEO of Facebook personally in October 2021, but about which we have no further news since then.

Then we think Assassin’s Creed VR whose announcement dates back to September 2020, but for which development appears to be still in progress according to our latest information. A few months ago, we also shared a video that revealed the possibly temporary name of Assassin’s Creed Nexus.

Finally, and we will really close our article on this last game, is an investigation by the competition services in the United States that revealed the development of a Batman VR from Camouflaj studio which has already offered us Iron Man VR. Owned by Meta, this upcoming game would then be a Quest exclusive, but no official announcement has been made yet.
