Incuvo is bringing Green Hell VR to PSVR in 2023, following last month’s Quest release and the upcoming PC VR release.
Creepy Jar, the developers behind the original flat screen release of Green Hell on PC and consoles, signed a contract in 2020 with VR developers Incuvo to bring the game to VR on PC VR and Quest platforms. A new extension of this contract, announced this week, will see Incuvo portray, publish and distribute the title of PSVR in 2023, and development will begin after they complete the PC VR release this month.
While this is good news for PSVR fans, a few things are still unclear. First, it is not specified whether the release will be for the original PSVR headset or the upcoming PSVR 2 headset for PS5. The former seems unlikely, but we still do not have a release date for PSVR 2. This year it looks unlikely, with a release sometime next year now a more secure bet. If that were the case, the release on PSVR 2 would make the most sense for Green Hell, especially given Incuvo CEO’s recent bullish comments.
However, it is also not known which version will come to PSVR. While all VR versions of the game are derived from the original flat screen release, the newly released Quest version is a slightly abbreviated, streamlined version of the game, designed to work better on the standalone system. However, the upcoming PC VR release is a complete VR port of the original, with all the bells and whistles. It will be interesting to see which version Incuvo chooses to bring over to PSVR next year. We also know that Incuvo is working on new game modes, including co-op support, so hopefully it will also enter the PSVR version at launch.
Incuvo says the PC VR version of Green Hell is still “expected to be released soon” on Steam. Keep an eye out for that and more news about the PSVR version in the coming weeks and months. You can read more about the Quest version of the game in our review here.
