The games, which are described on the PlayStation Blog as being available “after PS VR2 launches on February 22”, include a spin-off based on The Dark Pictures Anthology.
The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR is a “fast-paced roller coaster action-horror-shooter” where players shoot weapons at enemies while riding along on rails.
The concept appears to be very similar to Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, another Supermassive-developed horror rollercoaster which launched alongside the original PlayStation VR in 2016.

Sony announced today that PlayStation VR2 will officially launch on February 22, 2023, priced at $549.99 / €599.99 / £529.99.
This makes the headset more expensive than the PlayStation 5 console itself.
There will also be a $599.99 / €649.99 / £569.99 bundle which includes a PlayStation Store voucher code for Horizon Call of the Mountain.
