Hellsweeper VR is one of the bigger PlayStation VR2 titles slated for 2023, and now that window has just gotten a little more narrow. Developer Mixed Realms has announced that this violent action game is coming to PSVR2, Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest Pro, and PC VR on September 21.
Hellsweeper VR has two editions, too
Pre-orders are live now on the PlayStation Store, and those who buy it early get a hound mask for the protagonist. This applies to both the $29.99 standard version and the $39.99 Deluxe Edition that comes with then game’s soundtrack, artbook, and an exclusive Mystic Hellhound skin.
Hellsweeper VR, as shown in the release date trailer, is a first-person action game with “no-holes-barred locomotion” that has an arsenal of guns, melee weapons, and telekinetic powers. Upgrades give players the capability to get even stronger so they can progress further in this roguelite experience. It has around 16 maps, “over” 10 enemy types, and multiple mission types, which Mixed Realms claims means every run will be different. It even supports co-op as well as solo play.
Hellsweeper VR is the studio’s second VR game. Its first VR title was 2018’s well-received Sairento VR, which was a similarly fast-paced VR game that let players control an acrobatic cyber ninja. However, Sairento VR didn’t come to the original PSVR.
