Top 5 New VR Games Coming In 2018
May 25 2018
While many of the sites you frequent might publish year-end wrap-ups, you might prefer to look ahead at what’s to come. Ready to get your fix of virtual reality games? Below, we’ll look at 5 offerings to put on your “must check out” list.
1. Rick and Morty’s Virtual Rick-ality for PlayStation VR
Featuring a full assortment of voices from the Adult Swim TV show featuring Rick, a mad scientist, and Morty, his grandson, this VR game comes to the PlayStation VR platform for the first time in 2018. While playing it, you’re Morty’s clone, embarking on a journey spanning multiple dimensions and places. Also, learn the essentials of intergalactic car repair and put objects in the Combinator to make new items. A price for the game has not been published.
2. Bravo Team – PSVR
Until Dawn developer Supermassive Games makes a departure from its horror series with this straight-faced military shooter built around the new PlayStation Aim controller. Engage in intense firefights on war-torn streets using a cover system that sees you darting between locations and then physically hiding behind whatever you can to avoid incoming fire. Will this nail the VR FPS formula
3. Vinyl Reality (Full Version)
If your dreams center on having a second job as a well-known DJ, consider Vinyl Reality the next best thing. Made in Berlin, it features two realistic turntables, a pair of virtual headphones that let you hear your creations, and a separate audio output so you can share the mixing mastery with friends.
The early access version works on the Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, so expect the same compatibility with the full program. Sources have not mentioned prices, but the game comes out in January, meaning you don’t have long to wait for that crucial information.
4. Marvel’s Spider-Man
A collaborative effort between Sony Interactive Entertainment, Insomniac Games and Marvel, this PlayStation VR game starring the web-equipped hero promises “elements never before seen in a Spider-Man game,” plus an original storyline. During gameplay, you are Spider-Man and spend time being the good guy in New York City, while also navigating the typical challenges associated with relationships.
When can you play it? That essential detail is still under wraps. Stay tuned to your favorite gaming news sources to hear about the official 2018 release date.
5. Bebylon Battle Royale – Rift, Vive, PSVR
Senza Peso developer Kite & Lightning has been working on its first full VR game for some time now, but we’re hoping 2018 is the year we get to play it for ourselves. Set on a strange planet in which humans have stopped aging, deformed ‘Bebys’ battle it out for supremacy. The team’s recent work with facial capture on the iPhone X has been especially interesting to watch.
