(Pocket-lint) – A new version of Sony’s PSVR virtual reality headset is on its way. And this time it’s for the PS5.

The Playstation VR2 was first made official in early 2021 in a blog post written by the senior vice president of platform planning and management at Sony Interactive Entertainment, Hideaki Nishino. The name and some specifications were then further confirmed during CES 2022 in January.

There’s no official date for it yet, but here’s everything else we know so far.

The first PSVR headset was released for PlayStation 4 in 2016. It was upgraded once (to add HDR passthrough to the separate processor box, mainly) and PS4 Pro introduced higher resolutions/frame rate, but it largely retained the same design and capabilities. It worked using light sensors being read by a PlayStation Camera, both from the headset itself and separate Move controllers.

PlayStation VR2 is a different kettle of fish – mainly thanks to a complete rethink in the control method. It’s design too is more reminiscent of the PlayStation 5, although some elements remain, such as  the head rest and rear strap.

At CES 2022, it also announced some of the features and specifications of both (see below), meaning we have an increasingly comprehensive sense of how the headset will work.

It will effectively plug into a PS5 console via USB-C and doesn’t seem to need an external processing box this time around.

  • Maybe in time for the 2022 holiday season, but more likely 2023

There is no confirmed date for the launch of the PlayStation VR2 headset.

Bloomberg wrote in June 2021 that “people with knowledge of the matter” claimed it will be available “in the holiday period next year”, ie. 2022. However, according to eye-tracking technology company Tobii, Sony is still negotiating with suppliers and partners over different elements of the new headset. That suggests it might not even appear until 2023.

A version of the PSVR2 was available to developers to try during GDC in San Francisco in March 2022. However, we don’t know how close that one was to the final consumer model.

Notorious leaker Ming-Chi Kuo thinks the PSVR2 will be entering mass production in the second half of 2022, and so is likely to be available in the first quarter of 2023.

  • OLED display method
  • 2000 x 2040 panel resolution per eye
  • 90Hz, 120Hz panel refresh rate
  • Adjustable lenses
  • Approximately 110-degrees field of view
  • 4 cameras for headset and controller tracking
  • Internal IR camera for eye tracking per eye
  • Vibration on headset
  • USB-C connectivity
  • Built-in microphone, 3.5mm jack for stereo headset

Sony confirmed the above specifications during CES 2022 in January. It also revealed that there will be a number of interesting features.

The headset’s cameras will track the controllers this time, rather than using an additional camera or sensor. There will also be “sensory features” built into the headset itself, including eye tracking, headset feedback and 3D Audio.

  • Low latency
  • Six-axis motion sensing system
  • Capacitive touch detection
  • Adaptive triggers
  • Haptic feedback
  • USB-C for charging
  • Bluetooth 5.1

A new VR Sense controller will ship with the latest headset – dispensing with the Move controllers used with the original.

First revealed in mid-March 2021, the new VR controllers look similar to equivalents from Oculus and Valve. There will be adaptive triggers and haptic feedback, just like on the PS5 DualSense.

Each controller will have one adaptive trigger, with developers able to adjust the sensitivity depending on in-game actions. Haptic feedback will give the user a better sense of the feel of the terrain or audio effects.

One big bonus is that these controllers will be tracked by the new headset, rather than a conventional camera. This should give them much better control, less latency and can be used without the fear of ambient light affecting signals.

Horizon Call of the Mountain

Guerilla has partnered with Firesprite Games to make a dedicated virtual reality game set in its Horizon RPG universe for PSVR2. It is described as a “brand-new adventure” and is created especially for the new headset.

As with the PSVR2 itself, we don’t yet have a release date, although there is a teaser trailer (as above).

Pavlov Shack

In spring 2021, developer Vankrupt Games confirmed on Twitter that its Oculus Quest title, Pavlov Shack, will be released for the next-gen PlayStation headset.

The CEO responded to a question about PSVR support by saying that the original headset doesn’t have the resolution to run the game adequately.

Blade & Sorcery

The much-hyped Oculus Quest 2 title, Blade & Sorcery, could also be getting a PSVR2 port. Originally spotted by UploadVR, the developer Warp Frog claimed that although the current PSVR platform is more powerful than a Quest 2, the move controllers are too limiting for Blade & Sorcery. 

The news comes from an FAQ posted on Warp Frog’s website, it went on to say “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.”
