Sairento PSVR: Final Update With 5 New Weapons & 10 New Maps

Sairento PSVR finally saw a long-awaited update this week, which finally adds the new maps and new weapons other platforms saw last year.

The final update to the PlayStation VR version of the virtual reality (VR) action FPS will finally make platform parity.

Sairento developer Mixed Realms has finally released the bumper update for the virtual reality (VR) action FPS that will finally catch the PSVR version up to the Quest and PSVR ports.

The main additions brought by the final update are ten new maps and five new weapons. The new maps are: Cave, Depot, Marine Outpost, Research Lab, Roof Top, Sanctuary, Slum, the Suburbs, Subway and Training Hall.

The Sairento PSVR update finally adds The Suburbs map, which features a downtown street location at the intersection of a bridge and a tunnel.

The new weapons include the Apocalypse, the Disintegrator, the Figment, the IRM3000 and the Nobunaga, a DLC-exclusive explosive device.

The final update also addressed a few notable bugs, as well as general improvements: they fixed the fact muzzle flash wasn't displaying correctly, they fixed the missing weapon descriptions, improved memory management and optimised textures & lightmaps.

The Sairento PSVR update finally adds the long-anticipated Nobunaga, the explosive weapon that can fire "multiple series of grenades in quick succession."

The lag began early last year when the PSVR port of the game started to miss out on new content drops. Accounting for the delay, the developer explained that the delay was down to COVID delays, working from home and communications difficulties.

But a promise is a promise. We wanted to make sure that our PSVR fans get all the goodies our fans on other platforms get.

Sairento first released on PC VR all the way back in 2018. Since then it's been ported twice: once to Quest and then to PSVR.

Now that we have achieved platform parity, the developer has announced that this will be the last update for the game on PSVR. So what's next for Mixed Realms? They left a few hints at the end of the blog:

In case you are wondering, we have been working hard on our PC deckbuilding RPG called Gordian Quest and our 2nd VR game that we are not ready to unveil yet.

Sairento PSVR isn't the only virtual reality action title receiving a new update this month. Check out everything you need to know about the Population: One Season 1 event.
