Will PSVR games work with PSVR 2?

PSVR 2 launched last month as a worthy successor to the popular PSVR, the first-ever VR headset for PlayStation consoles. Now PSVR 2 uses all the modern technology available with the PlayStation 5, providing a better overall user experience.

Before gamers decide to replace their trusty PSVR headset with a shiny new PSVR 2, they have a few questions. One of the most pertinent questions for PSVR owners is whether or not they can play their PSVR games on the new $550 headset.

PSVR and PSVR2 backwards compatibility

Unfortunately for any PSVR owner, PSVR games are not backwards compatible with the PSVR 2, so you won’t be able to buy a PSVR 2 and play your old games on it.

While this is certainly a drawback for some, there are ways around backwards compatibility. Namely, several developers offer a free upgrade from the PSVR version of a game to the PSVR 2 version. Not all PSVR games have this feature, but there are well over a dozen games that currently offer a free upgrade.

You can see a list of these games below:

  • After the fall
  • Cave Digger 2: Dig harder
  • Improved D-Day
  • Demoo
  • Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue
  • work simulator
  • Last maze
  • NFL Pro era
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Whip Gun
  • confusing places
  • RC Airplane Challenge
  • Song in the Smoke: Revived
  • Beginners
  • Suicide Guy VR Deluxe
  • VR swordsman
  • Synth Jumpers
  • The Light Brigade
  • Onogoro’s Tale
  • The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Tourist Edition
  • Vacation Simulator
  • Windlands 2
  • Zenith: the last city

It’s possible that more games will see a free update in the future, but for now, this is the complete list. So, if you own a PSVR game that is not listed above, you will only be able to play it on the PSVR headset. If you have a PSVR 2 and own one of the games listed, you will be able to play it on your new headset.
