November will be a huge month for PSVR owners with plenty of free games
Sony has announced that PlayStation VR owners will be rewarded with a trio of free games next month, if they also have a PlayStation Plus membership.
The gaming giant is celebrating five years of PSVR with the giveaway, but isn’t quite ready to reveal what games will be offered to headphone owners. Sony says there are over 500 games and experiences available on PSVR, so we’re hoping for some big hitters.
As part of the platform’s fifth anniversary, the company also revealed the most played games to date, when it comes to playing hours. These are Rec Room, Beat Saber, PlayStation VR Worlds, The Elder Scrolls V and the Resident Evil VII: Biohazard experience.
These are global figures, but they are also true for Europe. Hopefully, they’ll be one of the games Sony has up its sleeve for next month’s giveaway.
While Sony’s PSVR 2 headset isn’t expected until this time next year at the earliest, there are still plenty of great games on the horizon for the current headset.
Sony is highlighting Moss: Book II, Wanderer, After the Fall, Humanity, Puzzling Places, and Zenith: The Last City, for starters, in a post on the PlayStation blog.
Earlier this year, Sony confirmed that there will be a second-generation PlayStation VR headset that will harness the extra power of the PlayStation 5 console.
Sony recently told developers in a private conference that the new model will offer 4000 x 2040 (2000 x 2040 per eye) resolution and an OLED HDR panel with a 100-degree field of view. The refresh rate will also be important here.
Sony has also promised new controllers for the PSVR 2, which will offer “a greater focus on ergonomics.” Since the PSVR is based on the older Move controllers, this will be a much appreciated update.
