Yeah it’s Halloween, time for fake spiders, fake cobwebs and usually rubbish costumes that involve a cheap plastic mask from the local corner shop. Why spend your cash on stuff that’s only going to go to the landfill when you can really frighten yourself with a good horror videogame (in virtual reality (VR) obviously). Oculus has already begun its Halloween sale and today Steam has done the same.
As always the Steam sale tends to be the biggest, purely down to the amount of content on the platform. The Halloween sale is no different for VR fans, especially as the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets are all catered for.
There are four main categories to choose from when looking for your next purchase, Top Sellers, which has both standard and VR titles displayed showcasing The Forest for example with a 33 percent discount, dropping its cost to £10.37 GBP. Then there’s Horror Games for standard PC players and Horror VR for those that really like a scare. Lastly there’s Horror Free to Play for anyone looking to hold onto their cash.
The Horror VR section reads like a who’s who of scary immersive experiences, with the likes of Killing Floor: Incursion, Dreadhalls, Monstrum, A Chair in a Room, Don’t Knock Twice, The Brookhaven Experiment, Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, Dead Secret, Arizona Sunshine and many more appearing.
On average most of the titles offer around 50 percent off, with some going down to 25 percent whilst others offer a massive 87 percent saving.
Steam does have 147 horror experiences available, not all of which are in the sale, but still plenty to choose from. It’s a short sale window with the offers finishing this Thursday, 1st November. For any further updates of the latest VR discounts and deals, keep reading VRFocus.
