  • DON’T BLINK! – Using PlayStation VR2’s innovative Eye Tracking feature, your enemies are upon you in the blink of an eye.
  • HOLD ON TIGHT – Endure every bump, twist, turn and drop as your cart speeds along the tracks with Haptic Feedback bringing that roller-coaster feeling to life
  • FEEL THE TENSION – Adaptive Triggers make each weapon feel unique as you unload on terrifying enemies that emerge from the shadows
  • MIND YOUR HEAD – Avoid falling beams, overturned buses and hanging witches. Headset Rumble ensures that you’ll feel it if you don’t!

“We are hugely excited to bring the most gruesome of The Dark Pictures horrors to VR” said Pete Samuels, CEO of Supermassive Games. “The Anthology enables us to explore many different horror subgenres with variety in monsters and locations, and it’s exciting for the team to reimagine so much of this in a single, unified, narrative. We remember Rush of Blood, an original launch title for PSVR in 2016, very fondly. We cannot wait for people to experience this new action-packed horror rollercoaster on the incredible PS VR2.”
