Watch Out For These Upcoming VR Games

Watch Out For These Upcoming VR Games

VR headsets seem to be the centre of attention this year, and the hype is real. Whether it’s the HTC Vive or the PS VR, everyone seems to be craving for some of that virtual reality action, and for all the right reasons. Considering all this, it’ll be unfair not to have a list of the top titles that are making their debut on the VR platforms. So here it is, the GC list of the 5 best upcoming VR games (in no particular order, of course).

Batman: Arkham VR

  • Release Date: October 2016
  • Platform: PS VR

Arkham: VR is a brand new take on the Arkham series (not a sequel, though), where you can be Batman. Finally, you can say AND mean the words “I’m Batman” (I mean, I’m Batman). The fascinating thing is that the game does not seem to be as action packed as the original Arkham trilogy. Instead, it will offer “an intense murder mystery in the style of the classic Batman comic books, but with a strong dose of dark psychology that the Arkham games are well known for”. Say what you will, the game had me at “lets you be  Batman”.


Na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN!

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

  • Release Date: 24th January 2017
  • Platform: PS VR

Remember the E3 footage for Capcom’s latest addition to the Resident Evil series? The demo released on the PlayStation 4 gave me the chills, every time I played it. And the devs want to make sure we live our nightmares, because the game is fully compatible with PS VR. That means, you can play the entire game in VR, from beginning to the end. You know, because I didn’t need to sleep at night anyway.


Scary, right? Now imagine that right in your face. Sweet dreams!

Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope

  • Release Date: 17th October 2016
  • Platforms: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift

Serious Sam VR, in stark contrast to the title, is not serious at all. Well, maybe Sam is really serious, but who’s to say for sure? But the game sure looks a lot fun, especially now that it’s made its way to VR. Following the tradition set by its predecessors, Serious Sam VR is about guns, action, chaos and downright mayhem. However, as opposed to the previous titles, the VR title will render the players static, meaning that you’re gonna be stuck in the same spot for the entire game. But on the plus side, no nausea or motion sickness!


Pew Pew Pew! Boom! KAPOW! (Btw, how cool is that leg?)

Fallout 4 VR 

  • Release Date: 2017
  • Platform: HTC Vive

Fallout 4 may not have been as great as its previous installments, but Bethesda doesn’t plan to give up just yet. As The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim gets an HD Special Edition, Fallout 4 will be making its way to VR. Get mauled by Deathclaws or crushed by Super Mutants or treat yourself to a million holes in your body (courtesy of Sentry Bots), all in amazing almost real experience. These guys must really hate us. But I kid, of course.


Watch the world blow up, in reality.


  • Release Date: 2017
  • Platform: Oculus Rift

This might be one of the most ambitious projects for the Rift. Coming from the devs of Metro 2033 and Metro Last Night, it put you 100 years in the future, after an apocalypse has led to a new ice age. The habitable regions of the planet are at the equator, and the survivors are in a bad state, hiding in colonies from a lot of menacing enemies, human and not. The game is both exhilarating and terrifying, and has an intelligent weapons system that makes it a must try.


Arktika.1 may just be the best VR game to come out in near future
