Sony announced a first title for their new VR headset and it is unsurpringly set in the Horizon universe. Horizon Call of the Mountain doesn't have any release date yet of course, but it will undoubtedly make the most of the new features of PS VR2. All the info can be found here but in a nutshell, the device will offer a 110-degree field of view, 4K and HDR support, OLED display with a 2000x2040 resolution per eye and eye-tracking among other things.

I don't know much about VR technical specs, but those seem to be good/great?

While the PlayStation 5 is very powerful and has a very fast SSD, I wonder how much of an impact being 4K will have on the visual quality of most games, given VR requires 90fps-120fps to avoid people feeling sick, if I'm not mistaken.

Still glad that Sony is sticking with VR, since neither Microsoft or Nintendo seem to be interested in it. This raises the chances that VR will end up being a permanent mainstay in gaming, which hopefully will drive interest, the technology and lower the price of entry further.

At the moment, the VR experience is very expensive - even more so if one goes for the best setups and headsets. Anyway, here's hoping it gets more and more successful so one day it's widely accessible to most people.

The footage is blurry AF.

Not a good look for brand new tech.

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth In many ways it gave me a Last of Us vibe. Well written, strong voice actors and presentation, but the gameplay didn't hit the spot for me. I can still understand why so many people like those games (23 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth the vista by running it in 21:9 aspect ration (even though i have a 16:9 tv), which gives more picture information on both sides and worked well for the horizontal design of the level design. (27 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth Having the close over-the-shoulder camera works great for the seamless-camera style presentation they went for, but it's problematic for spacial awareness in larger fights. It did help a bit to widen. (28 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth The mostly two-dimensional level design and not-as-sharp combat combined with a lot of polished animated auto-platforming and transitions made it good, just not a great gaming experience for me. (31 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth to play it. There's no doubt an enormous amount of work put into all the small details and craftmansship in all assets of the game. Very polished presentation. But coming straight off Sekiro, the game (33 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth @Sdarts: I had a very similar experience. I got it for PC on release. I already had the game on PS4 for a few years, but still shrinkwrapped. So i thought the high quality PC release was a good way.. (35 minutes ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts Anyway, just my stupid opinion and it's not meant to be an attack or hurt anyone, I just had a 8/10 experience. That is all. Though the game does have serious flaws. (19 Hours ago)
