During the State of Play, Sony gave a first preview of upcoming PSVR2 games, including Resident Evil Village.

In the State of Play, Sony shows the first excerpts from the VR port, which, unlike Resident Evil 7 full support for hand control offers.

“Will you raise both arms protectively, then Ethan will protect himself in the same way; hold up a gun, then Ethan raises his. You can now also perform dynamic actions like firing your weapon while holding a knife in the other hand, or holding a handgun in one hand and a shotgun in the other. These advanced controllers allow the player to immerse themselves in the game even more than ever before.

Horizon Call of the Mountain

Horizon Call of the Mountain is the first VR game announced by Sony for Playstation VR 2.

After the first teaser from January, the State of Play is followed by a longer trailer with game scenes. Sony also revealed the first story details.

“In Call of the Mountain we experience the world through the eyes of Ryas, a former Shadow Carja warrior who seeks redemption by investigating the great new threat facing the Sun Empire. He’s a master climber and archer, two absolutely vital skills as you assume his role, scaling dangerous mountains and bringing down mighty machines like the Thunderjaw.

Throughout your journey, you’ll master different tools and weapons, and use the world’s diverse materials to craft additional equipment to help you be prepared for any situation. But you don’t have to do everything alone. Along the way, you’ll meet new and old Horizon characters, including Aloy himself.”

In addition to the main story, Call of the Mountain offers a immersive river ride, in which you can see an impressive panorama of the game world. Sony hailed this virtual reality experience as the perfect introduction to the magic of Playstation VR 2.

Horizon Call of the Mountain is being developed in cooperation with Firesprite.

Several years later, the technology another giant leap forward so we now have the opportunity to immerse the player in the experience on a whole different level,” writes studio founder Sean Murray on the Playstation Blog.
