Sony officially announced the PS VR2 virtual reality headset will launch on February 22, 2023.
The PS VR2 will cost $549.99 in the U.S., €599.99 in the European Union, and £529.99 in the U.K. Pre-orders will go live on November 15, from either the PlayStation store or selected retail outlets.
The launch bundle will contain the PS VR2 headset, two PS VR2 Sense controllers, and stereo headphones.
Sony will also launch a PlayStation VR2 Sense charging stand for $49.99 in the U.S., €49.99 in Europe, and £39.99 in the U.K.
The PS VR2 will have one game bundle option at launch
One of the launch titles Sony previously shared was Horizon Call of the Mountain. And guess what, the game is included in the bundle.
A launch bundle with the PS VR2, Sense controllers, stereo headphones, and the game will cost $599.99 in the U.S., €649.99 in the European Union, and £569.99 in the U.K.
The game will feature a new protagonist, fighting a new “hidden danger to the world of Horizon.” At some point, the player will cross paths with Aloy, the previous game’s protagonist.
