Tactical Shooter Alvo VR Comes to PlayStation VR 2 with Enhanced Graphics and Haptics

Alvo VR, a tactical shooter game that shares similarities with the classic PC game Counter-Strike, is making its return to Sony's VR headset with an update. Originally released for PlayStation VR (PSVR) in 2019 and for Oculus Quest 2 in 2022, the game is now being converted for the PlayStation VR 2.

The multiplayer shooter will be released on the PlayStation VR 2 on September 14th and will potentially rival the popular military shooter game Pavlov. Owners of the PSVR version will have the option to upgrade for a fee, which is expected to be around $5.

OutsideIn Entertainment, the developer of Alvo VR, has announced several improvements compared to the original PSVR version and the Quest 2 version. The dynamic lighting has been enhanced, and the resolution has been boosted to 4K. The colors also appear richer compared to the Quest 2 version, which had more modest graphics. The haptic features of the PSVR 2, such as those on the forehead pad and Sense Controllers, are also supported.

Alvo VR offers a tactical gaming experience with various modes, including Free-for-All, Team Deathmatch, and Search and Destroy. The difficulty level caters to both casual and competitive players. The game supports cross-platform play, allowing for 5v5 matches between players on different VR platforms. For example, players on the PSVR 2 can compete against players using Alvo VR on the Quest 2.

It is unclear whether OutsideIn Entertainment plans to introduce new content for Alvo VR on the PlayStation VR 2. However, they have provided updates with new maps and weapons for the Quest version.
