Competitive VR shooter Alvo will be released on Sony’s new PSVR 2 headset.
Developer Mardonpol recently confirmed as much to UploadVR. There’s currently no date for the new version of the game but, then again, PSVR 2 itself currently doesn’t have a release date. We also don’t know if the game will be a free upgrade for those that already own it on the original PSVR.
Alvo Coming To PSVR 2
Alvo is a multiplayer shooter that focuses on modern combat across a range of maps. It first released on the original PSVR headset in early 2021 before coming to Quest 2 this March. Post-launch, Mardonpol has supported the game with new maps and content, including the recent edition of a co-op zombie mode.
When we first reviewed Alvo back in 2021 we said the game was surprisingly rewarding despite a lean launch. “If you’re a fan of multiplayer shooters, there’s no doubt you’re going to have a solid time with Alvo,” we said. “It’s seriously great fun thanks to lighthearted, arcade-like mechanics and a low learning curve that’s instantly accessible to anyone who’s played a shooter before.”
Alvo joins a steadily-growing list of confirmed PSVR 2 games including Resident Evil 8 and Horizon Call of the Mountain alongside other indie efforts like Firmament and Among Us VR. It also won’t be the only competitive shooter coming to the platform – Pavlov is planned for the headset, too. You can keep up with every game announced for PSVR 2 right here.
Currently, rumors and reports suggest PSVR 2 may launch in early 2023. Even if that’s the case, we’re hoping to hear more release details from Sony later this year.
