PlayStation VR 2 gets one of this gen’s scariest horror games

PSVR 2 new Header

PlayStation VR 2 and horror fans rejoice! This Halloween, MADiSON will dial up the fear factor with an all new version designed for Sony’s new virtual reality headset as well as other PC VR devices.

Likened to Konami and Hideo Kojima‘s cancelled first person horror, P.T., MADiSON tasks players with investigating a ritual murder through the lens of a ghostly camera.

There’s no firm released date for MADiSON VR, though we image it will arrive some time in October. In our MADiSON review from last year we were ensnared by its mysterious plot and tense atmosphere, but couldn’t quite click with its confusing puzzle-solving sections.

About PlayStation VR 2

Having been out for a few months now, we’re starting to see more games arrive on PSVR 2 with a mix of sequels, rereleases, and new IP. In our PlayStation VR 2 review, we scored Sony’s new tech an incredible 9/10:

PlayStation VR 2 bring’s Sony’s virtual reality platform back to the cutting edge. With the PS5 powering it, PSVR 2 can push stunning visuals, while the Sense controllers make full motion control and interactions standard, and we have some early showcases for the system as a whole.

As a recap, here are the key feature touted by the second iteration of PlayStation VR:

  • Visual Fidelity: For a high-fidelity visual experience, PS VR2 offers 4K HDR, 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering. With an OLED display, players can expect a display resolution of 2000×2040 per eye and smooth frame rates of 90/120Hz.
  • Headset-based Controller Tracking: With inside-out tracking, PS VR2 tracks you and your controller through integrated cameras embedded in the VR headset. Your movements and the direction you look at are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera.
  • New Sensory Features: PS VR2 Sense Technology combines eye tracking, headset feedback, 3D Audio, and the innovative PS VR2 Sense controller to create an incredibly deep feeling of immersion. Headset feedback is a new sensory feature that amplifies the sensations of in-game actions from the player. It’s created by a single built-in motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gameplay experience. For example, gamers can feel a character’s elevated pulse during tense moments, the rush of objects passing close to the character’s head, or the thrust of a vehicle as the character speeds forward. Additionally, PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech makes sounds in the player’s surroundings come alive, adding to this new level of immersion.
  • Eye Tracking: With eye tracking, PS VR2 detects the motion of your eyes, so a simple look in a specific direction can create an additional input for the game character. This allows players to interact more intuitively in new and lifelike ways, allowing for a heightened emotional response and enhanced expression that provide a new level of realism in gaming.
