You may expect to be able to play these games on your Quest 2 VR headset later this year when Meta held its 2022 games expo. One of last year’s surprises was the VR port of Resident Evil 4 (which turned out to be far better than expected), but a number of other games appear to be must-play experiences when they come this year. We’ve compiled the most significant announcements from the showcase for your convenience, in case you were unable to attend.
Ghostbusters will be available in virtual reality
Finally, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that the Quest 2 is getting a Ghostbusters VR game. Players will control their own Ghostbusters headquarters in San Francisco in the game, which is still in production under a working title. You can “track, blast, and trap ghosts with classic equipment,” according to the official description. A release date has yet to be announced.
Resident Evil 4’s Mercenaries mode will be available.
Residents of the Oculus Store who have purchased Resident Evil 4 will receive a free download of Armature Studio’s Mercenaries mode. In this timed challenge mode, your goal is to make it to the end alive while racking up the highest possible score. In addition to the previously mentioned features, you’ll also be able to use the game’s black-and-white visual effect and golden gun skins in the campaign with this version’s online leaderboards and 20 additional challenges.
Coming soon: Cities: VR
Cities: VR is a city-building simulation game that’s similar to PC games like SimCity and Cities: Skylines. An effort is being made to provide you a more realistic depiction of the cities you create (and destroy). If you preorder it before April 28th, you’ll get a 10% discount, and the price will be $29.99.
Among Us Game VR
Within Sloth, Robot Teddy and Schell Games revealed that Among Us’s VR version will be released before the end of 2022. A new trailer for the VR version of the popular game was also released. Schell Games, the company behind I Expect You To Die and other popular virtual reality games, has revealed that it is working on three more projects with Meta Studios.
NFL Pro Era has exceeded my expectations.
The NFL has granted official licencing to Pro Era, the first official VR football game to hit the market. A season mode will allow you to construct a squad that can compete in the Super Bowl, and the game will have a first-person view of football. It’s looking good so far. VR allows you to play games, participate in drills, or just play catch with pals. The game will be accessible on PSVR when it is released in the fall.
With the upcoming release of the “Electronic Mixtape” expansion pack for Beat Saber.
the video game’s already huge soundtrack will get much larger. Deadmau5, Fatboy Slim, Marshmello, Pendulum, and more will be featured on an upcoming Electronic Mixtape. There’s no word on a release date, but the bundle will cost $12.99, or $1.99 each song. Rift, PSVR, and Steam will all be able to purchase it as well.
As with Boneworks, a PC VR-exclusive product, Bonelab is a new Quest 2 and virtual reality game developed by the studio behind Boneworks. Bonelab features a new story, new maps, new weaponry, and new characters that you may play. It’s likely that experienced VR gamers will get the most out of this game because of the studio’s reputation of creating immersive experiences that require you to use your entire body. Later this year, Bonelab will be released.
Moss: Quest 2’s Book II will be released this summer.
Moss 2 is coming to the Quest 2 this summer, the sequel to the indie VR hit that stars a very cute mouse. Following a successful PSVR launch a few weeks ago, Quest owners won’t have to wait long for more adventures in Moss.
