PlaySta­tion VR has tak­en a back seat for quite some time, but espe­cial­ly since the launch of the PS5. Sony revived it with the “PSVR Spot­light” cam­paign where they announced six new VR games. All of these titles will be launch­ing in 2021.

You can see more about these games and some trail­ers, below:

Doom 3 VR Edition

The first game to be revealed was Doom 3 VR, which launch­es on March 29th for PS4 (back­wards com­pat­i­ble on PS5). It fea­tures the base game and its expan­sions, Res­ur­rec­tion of Evil and The Lost Mis­sions, all updat­ed for VR.

Feel even clos­er to the ter­ror with all-new VR enhance­ments that allow you to peer around cor­ners, angling your shots with flash­light-mount­ed weapons using motion con­trols, 180-degree quick-turn func­tion­al­i­ty to catch demons sneak­ing up from behind and an immer­sive wrist-mount­ed dis­play to track your health, armor, and ammo,” as it was described in the post.

Song In The Smoke

This game chal­lenges play­ers to sur­vive a dark and scary night. It’s a new title from 17-Bit and has been described in the post in a rather eerie man­ner: “The sun is set­ting, and the dense trees are cast­ing long shad­ows across the for­est. My fire is fad­ing, too, its light flick­er­ing in the gloom. From the bush­es, I hear a growl, low, and hun­gry. I have one ques­tion. How do I sur­vive the night?”

The third game unveiled was Fracked, a game that com­bines free run­ning, ski­ing and climbing. 

You play as a hero who is trapped inside a moun­tain frack­ing facil­i­ty, with you hav­ing to fight through a vast amount of ene­mies and “inter­di­men­sion­al mani­acs” to escape. 

In the game’s announce­ment post, Steve Watt of Devel­op­er nDreams said, “We’re not going for sub­tle­ty here–it is bold, brash, and uncom­pro­mis­ing in its vision.”

I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy and The Liar

This title comes four years after the orig­i­nal, and accord­ing to the project direc­tor Char­lie Amis, the deci­sion to make the sequel was a “no-brain­er.”

Our PS VR Agents are an inte­gral part of our com­mu­ni­ty, and we can’t wait for players–both new and returning–to expe­ri­ence the new twists, turns, per­ils, and puz­zles IEYTD2 has to offer,” Amis said on the PS Blog.


JRPG-inspired VR MMO, Zenith is in devel­op­ment at stu­dio Ramen VR. The game con­sists of a col­or­ful open world with “adren­a­line pump­ing action adven­ture gameplay.”

Our game has beau­ti­ful, hand-craft­ed envi­ron­ments that you’ll spend hours get­ting lost in. From lush canopies in the Amarite For­est, to turquoise blue waters at the Radi­ant Coast, to the hyper futur­is­tic city of Zenith itself, we’ve built a styl­ized fan­ta­sy world drip­ping with detail. Of course beau­ti­ful scenery is only one part of mak­ing Zenith feel like a liv­ing world, we’ve also invest­ed lots of time on lore, infus­ing the set­ting with intri­cate details that bring it to life,” the devel­op­er stat­ed in the blog post.

After The Fall

The final game Sony announced for the PSVR Spot­light was After The Fall, a co-op title from Ver­ti­go Games, the devel­op­ers of Ari­zona Sunshine.

In this game, you fight against crea­tures known as the “snow­breed,” which are undead beasts that roam the alter­nate 1980’s Los Ange­les area (which is com­plete­ly frozen).

Though they are undead, they are noth­ing like the aver­age zom­bie: snow­breed are ter­ri­fy­ing, fero­cious mon­sters that move around in hordes–not unlike a pack of wolves–waiting to strike in big num­bers,” describes a line from the post.
