Barbaria is grunting its way onto PlayStation VR2 next week.

Previously announced during the UploadVR Summer Showcase 2023, Barbaria will release on PSVR 2 was initially scheduled to launch this Summer, having released earlier this year on Quest and PC VR. Following a delay, it's now arriving this November and you can see it in action below:

In May, Barbaria introduced the Ages system, which will see a new Age added into the game every few months featuring unique rewards, trophies and challenges. This started with the Age of Retribution update in May, September brought the Age of Divine Favor and a Quest 3 update also dropped last month with visual improvements.

We enjoyed Barbaria when it released for Quest 2 and PC VR earlier this year – here's a snippet from our review:

Barbaria offers an excellent blend of first-person combat and strategic tower defense gameplay. It’s a release that directly rampages into a hole in the Quest library that seemed to be waiting for a game like this. With a decent range of game modes on offer as well as an engaging and satisfying progression system, Barbaria is well worth adding to any VR action enthusiast’s library.

We can't wait to see how the game plays on PSVR 2 when it launches for the platform on November 9.
