PlayStation has revealed the launch line-up for the upcoming VR2 headset. When the headset releases on February 22, it’ll have 13 games available to play. These include single and multiplayer titles in a variety of genres, some of which have never launched on PSVR before. The company also elaborated on its CES claims of 30 launch titles, saying the headset will have up to 30 games available to play within a month of its release.

Several of the games launching for PS VR2 were available for its predecessor — the headset itself is not compatible with all PSVR titles. One of the titles is Creed: Rise to Glory Championship Edition, an upgraded version from its original PSVR counterpart. Other games have been upgraded for the new system, with developers offering upgrades to for PS VR2 owners. Not all of the upgrades are free, unfortunately. These include:

  • Puzzling Places (free upgrade for PSVR owners)
  • Song in the Smoke: Rekindled (free upgrade)
  • Synth Riders Remastered (free upgrade)
  • Rez Infinite (paid upgrade)
  • Tetris Effect (paid upgrade)
  • Thumper (no upgrade)
  • NFL Pro Era (no upgrade)

Several other titles will debut on PSVR from other services. Before Your Eyes, Kayak VR: Mirage, Pavlov VR, What the Bat? and The Last Clockwinder all launched on other platforms. In addition to the VR-native titles, Polyphony Digital is also rolling out a VR update for Gran Turismo 7, making it the honorary 14th launch title for the new headset.

PlayStation also released a list of the games it predicts will release between the VR2’s launch and March 22. These include big names like Horizon spin-off Call of the Mountain, a remaster of Moss Books 1 & 2, Cities VR and a free upgrade for owners of Resident Evil Village. The complete list is:
