Barbaria, the visceral first-person combat game, has launched on PSVR 2. The game debuted on Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR back in February 2023, and has since seen numerous updates and fixes. The PSVR 2 version of Barbaria arrives content-complete with its VR peers.
Developed by Stalwart Games, Barbaria challenges players to explore the depths of their power in VR. Players can take on the challenge both as a Barbarian warrior in hand-to-hand combat and as an immortal semigod, creating worlds and dropping spells. Barbaria combines first person combat with base building and multiplayer raid mechanics for a unique, competitive VR experience.
Players build their realm by snapping together fragments and strategically placing minions and structures. But there’s more than one semigod in Barbaria. Through a competitive online raid system, players attack other player-created realms to increase their Mightiness, and receive rewards when their team successfully repels others.

As stated above, Barbaria launched for Quest 2 and Steam in February 2023. Updates that have since been delivered include the “Ages” system. This update presents new goals with various reward tiers for players to work towards before the next age arrives. PSVR 2 Barbaria players will benefit from these gameplay additions, while also enjoying the performance improvements that come from utilizing the power of the PlayStation 5 console. Barbaria has been optimized to run at a native 90hz on PSVR 2, which according to Stalwart Games, makes ‘the new release the best way to experience the world of Barbaria‘.
That said, the game features crossplay across all currently supported headsets. This includes PSVR 2, Meta Quest 2, Meta Quest 3 and SteamVR-compatible headsets.
The PlayStation 5 edition of Barbaria is available now, priced at $19.99 USD. Stalwart Games has stated that the updates will continue, with parity across all platforms. Have you been waiting for the arrival of Barbaria on PlayStation 5? Let us know in the comments below!
