Polyarc has announced that Moss and Moss: Book 2 will launch for PlayStation VR2 on February 22nd, 2023. They’re now available to pre-order, with PlayStation Plus subscribers receiving a 10 percent discount.
In a PlayStation Blog post, designer Doug Burton discusses how the next-gen VR headset improves both titles. Improved Haptics allow for feeling the impact of attacks, movement and various events happening nearby. The two Sense controllers feel more natural when manipulating the environment and interacting with Quill, and the Adaptive Triggers provide more weight and tension with objects.
For example, pressing the triggers provide some resistance, and going past that will result in pots and barrels breaking. Another neat feature is that interactive objects will glow when looked at, courtesy of the head-mounted display’s eye-tracking. It also shows Quill where your attention is, and she may provide hints if enough time has passed.
Moss and Moss: Book 2 will run at 4K/90 frames per second with a larger FOV and improvements to lighting and textures. Stay tuned for more details en route to their release.
