PSVR 2 will offer 4K/120Hz with HDR, a cinematic mode and other new features

Sony has been dropping PlayStation VR2 news at seemingly random times all throughout the year. Today, Sony gave us yet another update. We still don't have a release date, but we do have confirmation of some new features, as well as some new footage of the headset in use. 

For starters, we have a look at the PS VR2 settings menu, overlayed on top of a screenshot taken from Horizon: Call of the Mountain, a dedicated VR title set in the Horizon universe. The game is looking fantastic based on the foliage and environmental details we can see in the image. The settings menu itself offers quick access to headset vibration, screen brightness and size, play area settings and more.

With PSVR 2, users will finally be able to set up their own play area using see-through view. By looking through the front-facing cameras within the VR headset, you can draw an outline of your play area, and then you'll also get fair warning when you approach a wall, or any furniture or other objects.

The new headset features a 4000 x 2040 resolution display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. You can use the headset to play native VR games, or you can launch traditional, non-VR games in cinematic mode, allowing titles to be played on a giant virtual cinema screen. Cinematic mode can also be used for streaming content, like movies and TV shows. Content played in cinematic mode won't take full advantage of the PS VR2's display though, offering a 1920×1080 view of the action with HDR enabled.

We don't have a launch date for PlayStation VR2 yet, but the headset is expected to launch in 2023.

KitGuru Says: The PS VR2 offers great specs on paper, and we've already seen some great looking titles announced, but we still need a price and a launch date. Are you planning on picking up the PS VR2 when it launches?
