The VR Game Launch Roundup: Immersive, Creative and a Little Scary

Some weeks there’s a real dearth of virtual reality (VR) titles and then others they arrive in abundance. Next week is definitely the latter with a whole host of premium and indie videogames due to arrive for various platforms. As VRFocus likes to do every Friday, there’s our roundup of what’s to come.

Into the Radius

Into The Radius – CM Games

This single-player survival adventure arrived in Early Access late 2019 and now is the time for its official launch. With a story set in Russia where an event in the ’80s created an area filled with strange anomalies, you’re sent in to investigate, locating supplies and trying to make it out alive.

Vertigo Remastered – Zulubo Productions

A story-driven shooter: “Vertigo Remastered is a complete overhaul and occasional reimagining of the 2016 original, bringing modern VR gameplay, new content, and countless fixes/improvements to the table.”

Dreams

Dreams – Media Molecule

A PlayStation 4 exclusive which launched earlier this year, Dreams contains a single-player campaign but its main feature is the Create Mode so you can build your own videogame. Finally, next week that can all be done in VR!

  • Supported platforms: PlayStation VR
  • Release date: 22nd July

In Death: Unchained – Superbright

The original In Death was a procedurally generated rogue-lite for PC VR and now its coming to Oculus Quest in an exclusive format, with new enemies and features for the standalone headset.
