The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR has been announced as another PSVR2 launch game after its new PS Store listing revealed a release date of 22nd February 2023. The title costs £32.99/$39.99, and pre-ordering nets you goodies such as a golden gun and a bobblehead for your cart. It joins the likes of Horizon Call of the Mountain and nine other games launching on the same day as Sony’s next-gen headset.
As the follow-up to PSVR experience Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, you’ll once again be following a set path aboard a train cart and shooting whatever pops out at you. The track this time is set across four different scenarios: a ghost ship, a battle against witches in 17th-century New England, the desert where vampires lurk below the surface, and finally the World’s Fair Hotel. The latter heavily inspired the recent release The Devil in Me.
PSVR2 eye tracking, haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and headset rumble will all be supported features along with a 4K HDR resolution. “It’s your own personal nightmare where each track has multiple terrifying paths. No two runs will be the same, but each will test your reactions in this multi-sensory VR horror experience.”
Every game releasing the same day as PSVR2

About Liam Croft
Liam grew up with a PlayStation controller in his hands and a love for Metal Gear Solid. Nowadays, he can be found playing the latest and greatest PS5 games as well as supporting Derby County. That last detail is his downfall.
Really pleased about this. It was expected, but pleasantly surprised by the price too. Will pre order and get the extras because it’ll take too long for PSVR2 games to hit the second hand market anyway.
Hoping announcements for launch day releases of Kayak and Resi8 are next.
Nice. Going to preorder this sucker…Rush of Blood is still one of the best VR horror titles made.
Well isn’t that a pleasant surprise! Horizon CotM and Switchback VR for me then!
have a good feeling about this, will probably get this and horizon…maybe Cosmonious High?
Wonder if the more accurate controllers will make the game easier. Wasnt sure if it was because I was just terrible at the game, but I found the last one quite difficult. On the higher difficulties, it felt like I just couldnt shoot fast enough.
That’s an easy day one purchase for me.
@LordAinsley those controllers where crap ,so I wouldn’t be suprised ,blood and truth use to do my head in.
This is awesome news!
@tallythwack for sure. I remember sometimes the guns kind of spinning around and pointing at my torso, and just a generally gankiness to the aiming
@ThorsHammer yeah rush of blood still holds up. I think I’m one of the very few that liked the impatient too.
Just a shame that this alone is not enough for me to shell out so much money on psvr2 day 1
@Bleachedsmiles I didn’t mind the inpatient ,I was put off by everyones oversized head though
@Bleachedsmiles yh Inpatient had a few solid momements (and an awesome midpoint jump scare) but was overall disappointing for me, felt like a major wasted oppertunity…espcially when the plot left the cell. Im curious, what worked for you about it? Yeah, Switchback doesnt solely sell me on day 1 purchase, but RE8, Horizon and being a VR entusiast, certainly do.
