There are some promising VR games on the way this year. They could include real hits. Check out our release list for all the upcoming VR games, VR apps, and VR movies.
Among us VR
As you may know, in Among Us, you slip into the roles of crew members who must get a broken spaceship back on track. It wouldn’t be a problem if there were no traitors among the crew. They want to sabotage the work and take care of the rest of the team from behind. They win by finding and catching the imposters or preparing the spaceship to depart despite all obstacles.
Schell Games is developing the virtual reality port (I Expect You To Die 1 & 2 Until You Fall). It will be a standalone version of the game in 3D and from the first person perspective.
Cities: virtual reality and small towns
Cities: VR is a VR port of the famous city-building simulation Cities: Skylines, developed by virtual reality studio Fast Travel Games (Apex Construct, The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets, Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife).
The VR game optimized for Meta Quest 2 will offer a significantly smaller building area (2 x 2 km) than in the original game and comes without DLC or mod support. But it shines with a more impressive urban experience.
With Little Cities, another urban planning simulation will appear in 2022, developed from the start for VR and, unlike Cities: VR, will also be launched for the first Meta Quest.
Do you know and love Job Simulator and Vacation Simulator? Then we have good news for you: Cosmonious High, another game from the American studio Owlchemy Labs, will be released in 2022.
You play as a new student attending the alien high school of the same name. The school is plagued with all sorts of technical glitches, and it’s up to you to find the cause. You will meet strange alien characters and gradually unlock superpowers that will help you fix catastrophic flaws.
Cosmonaut high is a giant interactive virtual reality playground created so far by Owlchemy Labs. You can use new gestures and emojis to interact with the characters and, thanks to your superpowers, work fire and ice with your hands. The studio’s colorful graphic style and raunchy humor are back.
The year is 6042. You find yourself on the distant planet Ginkgo and in the steel carcasses of disused and rusting robots. To save the god of machinery, you board the Motherlode locomotive and embark on an epic train journey through wild landscapes, pursued by motorized hordes gone mad, the so-called Gazzlers.
The rail shooter mixes frenetic action, rogue-like elements and up to four player co-op: indoors for an explosive mix. After each kill you will receive points to invest in new explosive weapons and upgrades. It is also very necessary because each gazzler has individual abilities to beat you. With monster trucks, hippie vans, tricycles, bulldozers, tanks and party buses they drive through the desert and attack you aggressively.
Gazzlers will be available in early access on Steam in 2022. However, according to the current schedule, the completed virtual reality game will not arrive until February 23 for the Quest platform and Playstation VR.
GTA San Andreas
With Resident Evil 4, Meta has created a beautiful VR version of the classic game of the same name. Will GTA: San Andreas 2022 achieve similar success? The VR port has been announced and is expected to be in development by 2021 for many years to come. Hopefully it doesn’t crash with Definitive Edition remasters.
Hitman 3 VR (PC VR version)
Hitman 3 VR (test), released on Playstation VR in 2021, failed to live up to its potential. The flaw is the old VR headset tracking system and the lack of support for VR controllers. The PC VR version should fill in those gaps and take the hitman experience to the next level.
The VR adaptation can be played from a first-person perspective from start to finish and features all of the trilogy’s locations. IO Interactive is also promising new maps, game modes, and more for 2022.
Interestingly, you can find a lot of Hitman slots in UK non-gamstop casinos. It’s the popularity of the franchise.
Horizon Worlds (EU Start)
With Horizon Worlds, Meta wants to make the metaverse the base and compete with virtual reality social platforms such as Rec Room and VRChat. Users can design their rooms and worlds here.
The project was announced in the fall of 2019. Horizon Worlds has been open to North American users since late 2021. It’s unclear when European metaverse travelers will be able to join. In any case, it is expected to start in 2022 finally.
Schell Games (I Expect You To Die 1 & 2 Until You Fall) brings a different kind of cooking simulation. Accuracy rather than speed is what matters here. You have all the time you want to prepare historically attested dishes from different eras and cultures for the spirits of the ancient Greeks, Chinese and Mayans. It has a relaxing effect and teaches you a thing or two about the traditional art of cooking.
Besides, local UK casinoswhich contribute to the development of the local economy, offer many sweet, pastry and culinary games.
Moss: Book II
Moss is, to date, one of the best virtual reality games and has sold over a million times. For good reason: driving the wandering little mouse Quill through a beautiful diorama landscape, solving puzzles with him and defeating enemies is great fun and creates an emotional connection between the player and the protagonist.
The second volume continues the adventure to perfection. The studio promises more complex puzzles, new game mechanics, and a wider scope.
With Stride and Against, virtual reality studio Joy Way has made an impressive contribution. However, it’s not unreasonable to expect Outlier to be just as good. In this rogue-like shooter, you choose between various combat skills and weapons and explore procedurally generated worlds. The combination of power-ups and modifiers ensures that every game is different.
Outlier will be available in Early Access on Steam in Q1 2022. The regular PC-VR release is currently scheduled for Winter 2022. A Quest release is also planned.
The last winder
The Last Clockwinder offers a fascinating new game concept that can only be implemented in virtual reality. You wake up in an ancient and mysterious machine built in the hollow trunk of a colossal tree. Your job is to make the intricate clock mechanism work again. Too bad you can’t do it alone.
The tide turns when you find a pair of magic gloves to wear – clone power. You perform a move or action, and a mechanical alter ego emerges to mimic you in a continuous loop. If you cleverly daisy-chain your clones, you can build entire factories and complex devices. Mechanical assistants assist you with tasks such as cultivation and harvesting and are the key to repairing the machine.
Ultimechs is the latest game from VR hitmaker Resolution Games, responsible for titles such as Demeo and Blaston and targeting these latest competitive gamers. Here, you play as professional athletes who slide into highly developed ‘Mechs and have to shoot iron balls at goal in virtual stadiums. You can use rocket-propelled fists. According to Resolution Games, you need speed, precision and technology to win.
The sequel to the arcade flight sim is meant to be more meaningful, better, and more expansive than the original. The studio promises five unique aircraft, including an aerobatic plane, a rocket-powered glider, a jet, and a helicopter.
The virtual reality game would offer bigger and more animated islands, more precise physics, several hundred crafting missions and a dogfight mode for the first time. Plus, you can now fly at night, at dusk, and in the rain.
In this game, we slip into the role of Asher Neumann, who, using a snapping wristwatch, must travel through time to prevent the destruction of human civilization. We meet Nikola Tesla, find ourselves on the moon, decipher ancient symbols and beat the drum in front of thousands of spectators during the famous Woodstock festival.
The title is based on a combination of escape room puzzles and action pieces. However, Asher must also connect elements from different eras in innovative ways to advance the story.
Zenith: the last city
Zenith is an MMORPG inspired by Japanese role-playing games. The stylized fantasy world is designed by hand; it ranges from massive forests to heavenly coastlines and the futuristic city of Zenith.
Zenith offers maximum freedom of movement. So you can climb any object within reach, be it skyscrapers or mountains. With a glide system, you can float freely in the air to reach distant map areas, attack enemies, or enjoy the view.
The combat system is motion-based and uses intuitive mechanics like throwing, blocking, and dodging instead of pushing buttons. The social aspects were also crucial for the team. Zenith offers plenty of group content, including epic world bosses, events, and dungeons.
