PokerStars VR Launches on PlayStation VR2

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

PlayStation VR2 owners can participate in PokerStars' VR product, letting them access the free-play social game, which includes some social casino elements.

The game will include various types of poker as well as blackjack, roulette, slots, and craps, and allows players to interact with other players and physically see them occupying the space. The game doesn't have any real-money play involved.

Players must be 18 years of age to play, and the software will use an AI live chat monitor called Tox Mod to help identity those who shouldn't be playing the game. There are also a suite of play management tools, including timeouts, spending limits, player reports, and the ability to limit interactions with others.

Currently, the PokerStars VR product is available on other VR platforms, including the Oculus Quest and PC VR.

"Our Sony debut introduces PokerStars VR to a brand-new audience and we've spent months in development making sure it's rewarding social experience," said PokerStars Director of VR & Innovation James O'Reilly. "The PlayStation VR2 hardware is astonishing, and Sony have been a great partner in helping us realise its potential. I'm looking forward to welcoming PlayStation VR2 fans to our community over a few hands of poker, and to unveiling more to come from our game."

I love PokerStars VR, although I must admit I haven't played it in a long while. Anyone planning on jumping in?
