Top 10 Upcoming PC VR Games | HTC Vive Oculus Rift
Number 10 on our list of the Top 10 Upcoming PC VR Games is Visage Another spiritual successor to P.T. (May it rest in peace). This game offers a tantalizing sense of dread for players suffering with Silent Hills’ withdrawal. The use of the Unreal Engine 4 creates a realistic visual atmosphere as players roam around with its haunting halls and flickering lights. Ever since Allison Road’s untimely demise, let’s hope this game can finally see the light of day. 9th belongs to Star Trek: Bridge Crew Follow Levar Burton and most of the Star Trek legends as they take you on the most immersive Star Trek game to date. This game takes you and your friends to a shared virtual simulation of your own starship to travel to the vast beyond! So raise your shields, fight Klingons and follow to the Captain’s because this game heavily focuses on team play. 8th on our list is Rock Band VR Announced last December, Harmonix amps it up with Rock Band VR. Surprisingly, the game uses only one instrument for a Rock Band game: Which is The Guitar.
The game utilizes the Oculus Touch controller as well as the Rift Headset to put players in the musical pedestal. 7th Place is Fallout 4 VR This HTC Vive Exclusive game offers promise and ambition for fans who want to experience the post apocalyptic Commonwealth in Virtual Reality. Announced on E3 2016, details of the game have been scarce but the demo highlights the use of your trusty Pip-Boy and shows the gun-shooting action with HTC’s controller. Here’s hoping to no Preston Garvey VR Missions. 6th spot is Superhot VR. We’ve had a taste on how Superhot works normally…
but for VR? This Oculus Rift exclusive still offers the same gameplay element that made it cool: which is move and everyone moves. The body tracking features of the VR makes it so unnerving to reconsider your actions while saving your breath. How cool is that? 5th belongs to Eagle Flight VR Ubisoft’s First VR Launch Title for the Oculus Rift. This game puts you into the eyes of an eagle and soar through the barren city of Paris. The game is not just about mindlessly roaming around the world though, it encourages you to do fight and flight challenges. The addition of a Capture the Flag mode aims to provide a good multiplayer experience. And no, it’s not related to the Assassin’s Creed Franchise. But one could wish. 4th spot is Paranormal Activity: VR Taking the power of the Unreal Engine 4, this game makes everyone sh*t their pants. Announced on GDC 2016, it is inspired from the movie franchise but with a startling difference: It’s new and it is playable on Virtual Reality. The devs take a step back to its story and plays with its paranormal mythology.
3rd on our list is Battlezone A classic gem, Battlezone fires its cannons once more and is headed to VR. While the game may be released on the PS VR first, the game also supports the Oculus Rift. The game has endless replayability due to its procedurally generated map. The trailer also focuses on its colorful aesthetic coupled with special effects. Michael Bay would be proud. 2nd place is Raw Data Survios has developed a game that might change the course of cooperative VR. Raw Data excels at its hand-in-hand combat with a friend to virtually shoot, slice and terminate rogue humanoids.
Released as an “Early Access Game” on Steam, the game is set to release soon on HTC Vive. Here are the runners-up before we reveal the number one: And the most anticipated VR Game on the PC is The Assembly a game that cleverly places you on a virtual fiction populated with a compelling story, morality choices and mystery. You play as two separate characters that portray different roles and goals in their journey around the mysterious organization called “The Assembly”. Instead of words, the game has multiple endings that depends on the actions that you take. This game is playable for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
