5 Must Play VR Games In 2016
One of the best applications of Virtual Reality is undoubtedly, gaming. With Oculus Rift and HTC Vive already available, and PlayStation VR coming up in October, let’s have a look at some of the most awaited VR games of 2016.
Batman: Arkham VR
You get to be Batman. Need we say more? Probably not. The game gives you an opportunity to put on the Bat-suit, enter the iconic Wayne Manor and navigate through Batcave. The game releases sometime after Sony launches PSVR and the teaser itself has got everyone excited. The makers have decided to go all vintage comic way and lets you solve murder mysteries “but with a strong dose of dark psychology that the Arkham games are well known for”. The game will only be available for PSVR.
Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope
This edition from Steam is a trip down memory lane for all the gamers who have played Serious Sam over the years. Earth is at war with ‘Mental’ and Sam here is, as usual, the last hope of the planet and should fight out alien monsters to save the day. Announcing the game at E3, the makers Croteam said it will be supported on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Since it’s a standing rail FPS, it may evict the need of controller.
Everyone of us loved playing Duck Hunt, where we got to aim flying ducks on our TV screen and bring them down. Well, two decades later, Impulse Gear has got us Farpoint, where we can use Play Station’s Aim Controller to fight aliens and discover an unknown planet. Sony and Imulse Gear have worked together to create the Aim Controller. So we can expect some serious action on the foreign planet. With precise tracking of the gun, and hostile environment around you, Farpoint is sure to provide an immersive 360 degree experience on your PSVR.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew
Very few of the games in this segment will be available across all the major platforms and Star Trek: Bridge Crew is one of those. Considering how popular Star Trek explorations are, Ubisoft has made a perfect decision to make the game available for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive as well as PSVR. What’s more interesting is that users can play this game online and find their friends in space in a co-op mission. You can either roleplay as Captain, Helm, Tactical or Engineering and have a perfect geeky LAN party.
Star Wars: Battlefront X-Wing VR
Another big title next up in our list is Star Wars. We all have imagined ourselves piloting an X-wing and getting into a dogfight. With EA’s VR edition of Start Wars Battlefront, you are now closer to that dream than ever. Sony teased its trailer at recently and announced to make the X-wing mission free for all existing PS4 users. This game too, will be exclusive to PSVR.
Let us know which of the above games you are most excited about in the comments section below.
