Vertigo 2 (2023), the critically acclaimed shooter adventure, is officially on its way to PSVR 2.

Perp Games announced during its VR Summer Showcase that it’s partnered with developer Zach Tsiakalis-Brown of Zulubo Productions to bring the Half-Life-style sci-fi shooter to PSVR 2. Both a digital and physical release is said to arrive sometime “later this year.”

Launched on PC VR in March, Vertigo 2 returns you to the universe’s robot and alien-infested science facility, serving up some very VR-native design alongside its patently funny and quirky cast of characters. We liked the game so much we gave it a rare [9.5/10] in our review on PC.

Vertigo 2 is also getting a free update this year that will bring an in-VR level editor so you can create your own adventures and share them.

Additionally, it’s set to include three new playable characters that unlock upon completion of the game, all of which come with unique abilities that will change how you play.

Check out Tsiakalis-Brown’s full announcement below to see the level editor and additional characters in action:

  • ViRGiN

    Yeah, the best game that PCVR had to offer for its millions of users peaked at 297 concurrent players on release date, and immediatly took a deep dive to the bottom of barrel. Game that averages 50 players max a day.

    If it truly was best, it would have higher player count.
    Instead, even Killer Klownz beats it in every metric! 354 concurrent players right now! 10x as much as very recent concurrent peak!

    Not sure what’s the point of adding modding to a game with no playerbase. As per usual, classic PCVR trash.

    • Paul Bellino

      As usual you do not know what you are talking about and are a complete Idiot. End of story. This by far a lot better game than anything the PSVR2 has to offer at this moment. I have told you in the past and now I know it for sure. You are a complete fool that talks out of their ass.

      • ViRGiN

        Nice to meet you, complete fool! Nice that you have the ability to talk out of your ass.

        I don’t care how triggered you are, nobody cares about this game at all. Once again you complete fool, killer klownz is far more popular than vertigo ever will, or could be! COPE WITH THAT! Resident evil on psvr2 is trillion times more interesting than vertigo. Nobody but bootlickers like you care about vertigo.

        • Paul Bellino

          killer klownz is not in VR so who cares

          • Paul Bellino

            Resident evil on psvr2 at its roots is just another converted flat screen game. Its a totally different ball game then Vertigo 2 or Half-life Alyx that are high end VR games made only for VR. You really do not know what you are talking about.

          • ViRGiN

            Lol, alyx its supposed to be impress me? Game for handicapped, with free locomotion slapped last minute, doesn’t even support room scale

          • Ookami

            “Doesn’t even support roomscale”
            This is how you know that 90% of everything you say is made up. Lol what a clown.

          • ViRGiN

            This is how I know you are playing in your tiny basement!
            You clearly have no more than arm length of free space to move around.

            Now, try to walk down the stairs. You can’t! Alyx will float above.

            Free locomotion is pure ass as well, bumping player pawn up and down over every single obstacle, no matter how small. Everything has collision.

          • Ookami

            You very clearly never played it.

          • ViRGiN

            You obviously never moved your body when playing it.

          • Paul Bellino

            A jealous guy with not even 2 pennies to rub together. that likes to talk out of his ass

          • ViRGiN

            Downvoters, your hatred of facts won’t improve “helf ghey alex” collision detection!

          • Paul Bellino

            He clearly does not know much. Its amazing, why even talk or try to argue about something you have no knowledge of?

          • Andrew Jakobs

            That’s just lame, and shows you’re just trolling. It’s unanimous that Alyx is one of the best, if not the best, VR games till date. And it sure as hell supports roomscale. So stop bitching at everything that is valve/steam/pcvr as Quest would kill for a good VR game like Alyx.

          • ViRGiN

            Can you kindly shut the duck up?
            Why are you so poisonous and spewing bullshit?

            What is YOUR definition of room scale fool?

          • Paul Bellino

            Someone is Clueless…..

          • Andrew Jakobs

            Haha, says the troll who is the person here that spews the most poisonous bullshit.

          • Paul Bellino

            I just blocked Virgin. He is a total Troll that likes to talk nonsense

          • Ron Devou

            To be honest I felt RE8 on psvr2 was equally as good as Alyx despite its flat game roots. The VR implementation was very well done. Either way both Alyx and RE8 on psvr2 are stunning VR games, probably the best available and are must plays for anybody really into VR gaming.

          • ViRGiN

            Alyx had nothing going on for it other than half life franchise name. It’s crystal clear when you look at playcount. On release day it had over 40k concurrent users, over double that of all steamvr games combined on the most favorable day since release.

            And vertigo is supposed to be “one of” the best games when it didn’t even peak 300 players? Not even 1% of alyx?

            Killer Klownz is #2 pcvr game right now with more players than vertigo has ever seen

          • Ron Devou

            Yawn

          • ViRGiN

            Killer Klownz is the biggest gem of PCVR. You can’t distort the reality. This is what elitists chose to play. Not vertigo.

          • Ron Devou

            Boring

          • ViRGiN

            Yawn

            I got bored with alyx and refunded it.

          • Ron Devou

            Good for you. I suspect you had to save up a lot of your pocket money to buy it so if it wasnt for you refunding it was the right thing to do. Well done.

            You see you can make mature decisions occasionally. Keep it up. I’m proud of you.

            Next step is learning how to interact with strangers on the internet without getting all upset.

          • ViRGiN

            Yep, I’m from the third world, and alyx was overpriced. Pcvr generally is too expensive. That’s why you primarily see cheap games being the most popular ones. Killer Klownz + The Slopes both seen -84% discount, and are top tier games now that you can buy for 0.31 cents. Both games concurrent player count right now is over 3 times higher than the peak of vertigo!

            Long live steam sales!
            Valve le revolution!

          • Captain Dunbrody

            Nobody cares. Not even yo mama.

          • ViRGiN

            You cared enough to comment online, so mission accomplished.

          • Captain Dunbrody

            So it’s attention you’re hungry for? Adults don’t listen to you in real life?

          • ViRGiN

            Your mama stopped calling.
            That’s it.

          • Paul Bellino

            I finally found it on steam, Killer Klowns is a very stupid wave shooter. What is your problem? You have no taste. I was totally right about you. This just proves it. You have not a clue as to what you are talking about.

          • ViRGiN

            You’re even more stupid than i though!
            Bizarre!!

            I didn’t choose that game. Community did! Not vertigo, but killer klownz is rocking the lists. Vertigo is scraping the bottom of the barrel next to other games barely anyone ever playing.

            Please stop being douche and stupid

          • CrusaderCaracal

            broken record

          • ViRGiN

            Dude I’d delete this comment before anyone sees it! It’s 100% VR only, and it’s literally number 4 right by player count on pcvr – 685 players are playing killer klownz, more than double of latest Vertigo game.

          • ViRGiN

            the amount of people upvoting your CLEAR AND PURPOSEFULL misinformation is really worrying.
            PCVR elitism and denial goes really, really deep here.

        • Paul Bellino

          get off and don’t comment on Road to VR if you don’t know what VR is!

          • ViRGiN

            You’ve shown your lack of knowledge below. You know where the door is.

          • MasterElwood

            Just block him like many of us did

          • Paul Bellino

            No, I just want him to keep talking so all the world can see a grown man talking about something he clearly does not.

          • Daniel Meyer

            and with this he has already won over you. He is a troll. He dont care if he is wrong or right. Most of the comments here are about him and not the game. block him.

          • ViRGiN

            Still living in denial? Still haven’t found killer klownz?

            You are the one spreading pure misinformation. There isn’t even an ounce of truth in any of your comments ever.

          • david vincent

            Yeah now the comment area is full of idiots feeding a troll

          • Paul Bellino

            I just blocked Virgin. He is a total Troll that likes to talk nonsense. no more

        • Methos

          Virgin, it’s ok we get it. You don’t like PCVR. Do you really have to remind everyone of this every time you post? We know. Your point has been made.

          • ViRGiN

            There are very few users in the comment section.
            Are you sure everyone knows about this already?

          • Daniel Meyer

            it is a wonder. I am pretty new to this site but I have already blocked him. And I see only “Content not available” should be post something… and nearly every discussion you guys have here with him are about him trolling you. Block him.

            I am also buffled, that this guy is not perm. banned here. Such toxic behaviour is deadly for a community.

  • Ookami

    Nice! It’s still amazing to me this is made by one dev.

    • ViRGiN

      It’s still amazing to me the very same developer just spreads pure hatred for anything Meta!

      • Ookami

        “Pure hatred”
        Like what? You’re just throwing a tantrum because you can’t play it.

        • ViRGiN

          Please don’t crap yourself with all that amount of trigger.

          You’re the one denying everything i ever say, just by saying “no”. You don’t even have a clue what room scale is. Go play some killer klownz now.

          • Ookami

            So you have nothing to back it up. That’s typical.

          • ViRGiN

            You are incapable of defining room scale.

          • Ookami

            nice deflection. NoW go back to shaking at rage at the thought of people not giving Zuck money

          • ViRGiN

            Ah, as always, you ran out of arguments you never even had.

          • Ookami

            You still failed to give evidence, but still pretend you won. No amount of deflection will change that.

          • ViRGiN

            OK

      • Andrew Jakobs

        You mean like you do for PCVR?

        • ViRGiN

          Hate? No, i make fun of it, old man.

      • CrusaderCaracal

        I mean you do the same for PCVR

  • Foreign Devil

    Gameplay must be amazing. . because, graphically it looks much much worse than Half Life Alyx going by the video you posted…

    • ViRGiN

      it’s not amazing, which is quadruple-confirmed by the amount of people actually diving in.

      this is the kind of game you’ll be happy to buy to “support small developer”, but never actually bother to play, because you asked for “proper” games, but hey, this was 5 games for $5 type of deal.

      • Andrew Jakobs

        Because you don’t like these type of games, doesn’t mean others also don’t like them.

        • ViRGiN

          When it tops at 297 concurrent players and immediately dives down, you need to shut the duck up and accept facts.

          Cope old man. A silly clown game from couple of years ago had infinite success in comparison.

          • Andrew Jakobs

            Who are you to tell me what (kind) of game I should or shouldn’t like? I like a lot of different games, short games long games, simple or complex looking. I don’t care if a game has a lot of success, if I don’t like it and do like another game that isn’t succesful, it’s up to me, not some stuck up troll like you are. There is a reason why more and more people are blocking you.

          • Ookami

            Yeah, I honestly don’t care whether I single-player game has a lot of players or not. If it’s something I’d like, I’m going to play it. Of course I want good games to have the success they deserve, but the lack of success should prevent anyone from playing. How are games supposed become successful in the first place if everyone had that kind of attitude anyways?

          • ViRGiN

            That never bothered me.
            Once again, I never prohibit anyone from ever liking anything. I’m just presenting facts, and fact is Vertigo 2 can only be considered “one of greatest vr games since alyx” only in review scores from ‘journalists’, but the players score paints a much much darker picture. People simply choose to not play it.

          • CrusaderCaracal

            dude it’s not expensive, also you need new material nobody cares about killer clowns

  • Ron Devou

    I see we are being subjected to a certain angry young man’s ‘tantrums’ again.

    • ViRGiN

      Yet another day of getting triggered?

      • Ron Devou

        I’m not familiar with the term ‘triggered’. I’m an adult not a teenager. Maybe go speak to people your own age. You seem to struggle in an adult environment.

        • ViRGiN

          You need to get on with times, old man. Did your grandson show you how to use internet?

          • Captain Dunbrody

            Are you afraid of adults? Did someone touch your pipi one too many times? Is this where this is coming from?

          • ViRGiN

            Excuse me? This isn’t suicide hotline, i can’t help you.

          • Captain Dunbrody

            I feel really sad for you, boy. First thing that comes to your head is suicide line and getting help. It couldn’t be more evident you need it.

          • ViRGiN

            How sad your life must be to engage with AI bot about shitty VR games on a beautiful Sunday.

        • Captain Dunbrody

          I worked with troubled kids before. He was clearly touched or punched on daily basis.

          • ViRGiN

            So you’re a pedo?

          • Captain Dunbrody

            Dear child, contrary to what you may have experienced, not every adult is.

          • ViRGiN

            Thanks for confirming you’re a pedo.

    • Captain Dunbrody

      My god, just found this thread, what an insufferable little cu*@.

      • Ron Devou

        Ridiculous isnt it. It’s on every discussion on here. Hes either a child or has some serious issues.

        • ViRGiN

          Sounds like you ran out of money to get Killer Klownz

          • Ron Devou

            Boring. Get some new material.

          • ViRGiN

            You wouldn’t have time for these stupid comments if you discovered the magic of The Slopes. Don’t knock it until you try it!

          • Paul Bellino

            killer klownz is dog shit. Just looked at the stupid wave shooter. Are you stupid, You like that total Crap???

          • ViRGiN

            Dog shit? If it was truly dogshit it wouldn’t be in top 5 on steamvr don’t you think?
            If Vertigo was actually good for the masses, it should be also on the top like alyx is – but it’s not!

        • Captain Dunbrody

          As a bystander I would say it’s both. It’s sad really, this is all compensation for something.

        • Paul Bellino

          serious issues and total loser

    • CrusaderCaracal

      I honestly just skim through the article, seeing the angry Meta bootlicker whine when someone mentions they enjoy PCVR is the real entertainment on Road to VR

  • Goooooooooooooood

  • Richard R Garabedian

    I think vertigo is one of the worst vr games i have ever played. I dont understand the hype. I guess people are desperate for any actual vr game. im getting there myself
