PlayStation VR is still going strong after all these years, thanks to continual developer support and the fact that its the only virtual reality (VR) headset where collectors can buy a physical copy of the games. It being E3 2021 week, Psytec Games and Perp Games have announced that not only is Windlands 2 coming to PlayStation VR, but you’ll also be able to pick up a boxed copy this summer.
At the time the original Windlands challenged the concept of VR locomotion as swinging around was deemed too intense, hitting most major platforms including PlayStation VR. When Windlands 2 came out in 2018 it further improved that sense of swinging through expansive environments. Ahead of launch PlayStation VR support was mentioned but never materialised, so it has been a few years in the making.
In this sequel, players can explore this verdant land with up to 4 friends, soaring through ruins with grappling hooks and a bow destroying gigantic titans to save the world.
“We are pleased to announce that we are working with PSVR specialist Perp Games to bring you the boxed version of Windlands 2,” said Psytec Games in a statement. “We know there is nothing quite like collecting boxed PSVR games, especially with PSVR 2 around the corner, and we can’t wait to get it into your hands.”
“Since developing one of the first truly great PlayStation VR games, the team at Psytec Games have not sat on their laurels but continued to develop the fun and wonder of the Windlands Universe. By adding up to 4 player CO-OP and range weapons, they have created a game in Windlands 2 that will bring countless hours of joy to the VR gaming community,” said Rob Edwards, Managing Director at Perp Games.
The digital and boxed format versions of Windlands 2 will be available on PlayStation VR for late Summer 2021. For further platform updates, keep reading VRFocus.
