While the official information doesn't explicitly confirm that Stranger Things will see a PSVR 2 release currently, the door remains open for future platform expansions. Considering the widespread popularity of the Stranger Things franchise, a subsequent release on platforms like PSVR 2 could broaden the game's reach. More players will be able to explore the mysteries of Hawkins in virtual reality.

There's no mention of a PC version in the pipeline. The studio's current focus appears directed towards optimising the game for the Meta Quest ecosystem which is great news if you're looking forward to fully immersing yourself in the game.

Stranger Things VR gameplay

Stranger Things VR puts players in Vecna's shoes, invading the dreams and memories of characters like Will Byers and Billy Hargrove. As Vecna, players will have telekinetic powers, making them able to manipulate, crush, and throw enemies.

To make the experience as real as possible, Jamie Campbell Bower (Vecna) and Matthew Modine (Dr Brenner) lend their voices, adding authenticity to the game.

The Stranger Things VR is a canonical addition to the Stranger Things universe and aligns with the show's narrative, exploring Vecna's influence on past events and unravelling mysteries within Hawkins. Moreover, the players will get a unique perspective on past events, revisiting key moments in the timeline. Players will witness how Vecna's actions shaped Hawkins, including the origins of the Mind Flayer and its connection to the town.
