Sony's next-generation PlayStation VR2 headset is just around the corner. The company confirmed a February 22 launch date in a new blog post, but availability in each country may differ according to local import regulations.

The PlayStation VR2 boasts improved specifications compared to its predecessor, taking advantage of the PlayStation 5's more powerful hardware. It features a higher resolution 4K display, HDR, a 110-degree field of view, and foveated rendering.

With an OLED display, players can also expect a display resolution of 2,000 × 2,040 pixels per eye and smooth frame rates of 90/120Hz.

Integrated cameras embedded in the headset support inside-out tracking that monitors both you and your controller. Your movements and the direction you're looking are reflected in-game without the need for an external camera.

A new headset feedback sensory feature amplifies the sensations of in-game actions from the player. This is done by a single built-in motor with vibrations that add an intelligent tactile element, bringing players closer to the gameplay experience. 

Sony's Tempest 3D AudioTech adds an additional level of immersion, bringing to life a player's surroundings.

Finally, the PS VR2 has eye-tracking, detecting the motion of your eyes so a simple look in a specific direction can create an additional input for the game character.

The PS VR2 is expected to cost S$869 locally. It will ship with the PS VR2 Sense controllers and stereo headphones.

A separate Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle will retail at S$939, and includes a PlayStation Store voucher code for Horizon Call of the Mountain

Standalone software titles, including Horizon Call of the Mountain, will also be available for pre-orders starting this month. More details will be provided at a later date.
