Hope it’s a blood rush
Supermassive Games is well known for its interactive horror story games. Until dawn, The Quarry and The Dark Pictures Anthology dominate the genre. With their new title, they take a step back in the field of virtual reality.
After Until Dawn was released, Supermassive Games developed a VR tie-in called Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. Fans of the original game had a very, very different experience in Rush of Blood than Until Dawn’s choice-based gameplay. This seems to be the case for The Dark Pictures: Switchback, which was announced last week.
Like Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, The Dark Pictures: Switchback is an on-rails shooter. Players seem to be on some kind of carnival or amusement park ride, being taken through various locations. Again, a departure from the gameplay of the anthology, Switchback puts dual guns in the hands of players as they traverse gruesome locations.

The first season of Supermassive Games’ The Dark Pictures Anthology concluded with The Devil in Me. There are potentially six more titles to come for the series. Switchback seems to be one of those six.
The PlayStation Store release date says it will be released on February 22, 2023. The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will be released exclusively on PSVR 2.
