There’s no doubt that VR is here to stay, as the cost of headsets continue to drop and VR experiences become more accessible for the average gamer. Sony may have been late to the party when they first released PlayStation VR in 2016, however, the Japanese company managed to quickly dominate the VR space thanks to the relatively low price point of their headset and accessories in addition to the PS4’s massive install base.

In 2018, PSVR users were able to experience great games like Tetris Effect, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, and Beat Saber. This year’s line-up has us just as excited to strap on our headsets and travel to new worlds, so we’ve created this list to highlight some of the most anticipated PSVR titles for 2019. Make sure to check back as we’ll be updating this list in the future.
