PSVR 2: Demeo and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge Enhanced Edition announced on Sony’s future headset

As expected, sony mentioned his PlayStation VR 2 below In-game status from this evening. But there is reason to be disappointed: the manufacturer did not dwell on the helmet, but only on two games that will be available on PSVR 2but not necessarily from its launch early next year.

Well, those are two already known titles. The first is Demeo, a role-playing game dungeon crawler playable up to four players in co-op, and which had rights to its trailer (but not its release period) on PS5 with PSVR 2, you can find it above. Gustav Stenmark, producer at Resolution Games, adds:

Do you miss board game nights? It’s a Friday night. You just opened your bag of chips. Your friend is watching you across the table, impatiently waiting for your two other late arriving friends to pull their character sheet out of their bag and find their dice. The tension grows. The board is ready. You are about to embark on the greatest adventure the world has ever known.

There is something very special about gathering around a table for an RPG with friends and as a VR studio full of seasoned players, even including well-known creators in the multiplayer games such as Mike Booth (Left 4 Dead) and Tom Hall (Doom), we asked ourselves a question: how to recreate the magic of this moment in an immersive experience that captures not only the gaming experience, but also the sensation of being around a table with your friends casting spells and slicing monsters?

Our answer to this question: Demeo. An award-winning VR experience (also available without VR) enriched since its release last year with new heroes, new adventures and more. And today, we’re excited to announce that we’re bringing Demeo to PlayStation VR 2 and PlayStation 5 in 2023 with a ton of exciting features that will make this game one of the best ways to experience Demeo yet .

Haptic feedback from the PlayStation 5 PSVR 2 Sense gamepad, headset and DualSense wireless gamepad will play a role in immersing the player in Demeo like never before… and it won’t just be for the big moments where you’re being pushed around by a fireball or such other form of attack. Imagine feeling different weights in each hand as you grab game pieces with your PSVR 2 Sense gamepad. This is the level of depth that we seek to capture with our implementation of haptics.

The visual fidelity of PlayStation 5 and PSVR 2 has given us every reason to revisit our graphics and take advantage of what’s possible on PlayStation hardware. If you thought heroes and monsters looked scary before, wait until you see them with our new color map! Refresh rate is a crucial part of creating an enjoyable viewing experience, which is why we’re happy to be able to use the PSVR 2’s 120Hz refresh rate.

Thanks to the hardware’s eye-tracking capabilities, we’re also able to bring some magic to our menus: PSVR 2 players will be able to make selections in Demeo’s menus just by blinking their eyes. It’s a surprisingly fast experience that quickly launches you into your next game.

When Demeo hits the PlayStation Store, the game will be available to players who have already delved into the virtual world, as well as those who have yet to do so, but that doesn’t mean PlayStation players who want to experience the two experiences, will have to buy it twice. You’ll be able to enjoy Demeo on PSVR 2 and PlayStation 5 with a single purchase, allowing you to start each adventure on the platform of your choice. Whether it’s a lazy day on the couch or a more energetic day with your adventurous friends and VR, we’ve got you covered.

What if you want to play Demeo with your friends, but they’re not on PlayStation hardware? No problem ! Thanks to Sony’s continued development support, Demeo players on PS5 and PSVR 2 will be able to share their sessions with their friends regardless of their preferred platform.

Over the past few years, we’ve had a lot of fun gathering around the virtual table with our friends to roll dice, play cards, and move our minis, and we’re excited to welcome the entire PlayStation community to our midst in 2023!

The second game is Star Wars: Tales From Galaxy’s Edgean action adventure game originally designed for Meta Quest and who should be covered PSVR 2 next year ia Improved version. The upgrades aren’t known yet, but here’s the trailer and a statement from Scott Mayer ILMxLAB :

Thanks to him, you will live the story of the padawan-turned-Jedi, Ady Sun’Zee (Ellie Araiza) in “Temple of Darkness” and “The Sacred Garden”. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a droid, you’ll find your answer on a bizarre hunt as you play as Class IV assassin droid, IG-88 (Rhys Darby) in ‘The Bounty of Boggs Triff’ .
