Hello Games has announced that No Man’s Sky will be coming to the PlayStation VR2, increasing the “sense of immersion and believability by several major notches”. It will be included for existing owners of the game on PlayStation 5. More details about the PSVR2 version will be shared in the coming months.
Details via Hello Games:
Back in 2019, for the original PlayStation VR, we took the decision to rebuild the game from the ground up, leaving no stone unturned when it came to amping up the virtual reality immersion.
Cockpits and control systems of starships and land vehicles were rebuilt, menu systems and interfaces redesigned, teleportation controls, terrain manipulation, warp effects were all redesigned to heightened the dynamism, tacticity, and exhilaration of your adventure. No aspect of the experience was overlooked in our drive for maximum immersion.
In the years that have passed, looking back on the planet you’ve just left as it recedes from view, staring up as your life-sized ship teleports in above you, or creating a towering base structure in virtual reality solo or with friends, has never gotten old. In a virtual reality headset, creatures seem closer and more familiar, space battles more ferocious and frenetic, planetary vistas more expansive and zen-like.
To experience No Man’s Sky in PlayStation VR was a minor miracle, such was the technical challenge we faced bringing an infinite seamless universe into the futuristic headset. Several years later, the technology has taken another major leap forward such that, now, we have the opportunity to immerse the player to a whole new level.
The power of PlayStation 5, coupled with the all-new PlayStation VR2 hardware, including the new Sense controllers, combine to take that sense of immersion and believability up by several major notches.
