The follow-up to last year’s Boneworks was officially revealed yesterday at the Meta showcase as Bonelab. Later this year, it will be available for Quest 2 and PC VR headsets. Bonelab is an action-adventure physics game with a new plot and it builds on the world established by Boneworks.
Boneworks’ world and mechanics seem to have been given further polish for its sequel. There’s also a hint of a locked box labeled “Boneworks” at the end of the trailer. Maybe the original game could be played in the newer engine? Who knows.
What happens in Bonelab after the events of the first game?
Taken from the Oculus Blog: “You’ll find yourself in a mysterious underground lab after escaping your execution. Inside this mysterious facility are training modules that actually transport you to different pocket dimensions. The more you complete these challenges, the more you’ll find out about why this place exists and what your role is within it.”
Stress Level Zero confirmed earlier this week that Quest 2 will not feature any downgraded physics compared to the PC version, while the GPU in Quest 2 is not as powerful as the PC, the developer thinks its CPU performance is enough. Though you may want to see for yourself, here are some comparison screenshots between PC VR and Quest 2 versions of the game (sorry for the low resolution, but these should give you an idea nevertheless).
While the mods are common thing in the PC gaming, there’s no indication that they’d be supported on the Quest version. Though the Quest platform is familiar with modding, as Blade And Sorcery: Nomad was the first Quest 2 game to support modifications. We’d also appreciate modding capability for Moss 2 (It’s also coming to Quest 2, read more about it here) as it lack dynamic shadows and Meta’s new addition “Mobile ASW” to the Oculus Quest 2 firmware would make things easier for modding because it would allow the game to run at half the required FPS while extrapolating the rest.
Stress Level Zero has also recently stated that there is a “high possibility” that future titles from the company would be released on PSVR 2. While there was no PSVR 2 announcement yesterday, let’s hope there will be one in the future.

You can see the differences between PCVR and Quest versions of Bonelab VR.
There are some differences regarding the color contrast and depth feel, but the real gaming experience may also be very different
