Feel free to add your favorites - these are some of my "most wanted" VR games in 2024!

Some should have arrived in 2023, but did not make it, so I've repeated at few games from last year's thread 🙂

The most interesting games may be the surprises we get through the year. In early 2023, I had no idea we'd get The 7th Guest VR or Arizona Sunshine 2 🙂 Can't wait for the surprises in 2024! 🙂

Vrider has also been announced for PCVR and Quest, trailer does look nice:

 

A release on Steam is expected in Q4 2024, Steam page is not yet up. More info about the game here:

Not sure the game will be ready in 2024, but Survios confirmed that Aliens VR still is in development - and is using Unreal Engine 5:

This week at GDC 2024, Survios CTO Alexander Silkin gave a presentation covering some of the challenges and opportunities of building a VR game with Unreal Eng.... In the session description the studio clearly affirms: “Survios is utilizing these techniques to develop an upcoming VR game based on the Alien franchise.”

Source: https://www.roadtovr.com/survios-aliens-vr-quest-2-pc-ps5/

Would be fine getting this game next year, 2024 is already getting crowded 🙂

Note that it has been known since summer 2022 that Survios is working on Aliens VR, so this is no news, just a confirmation that the game isn't abandoned - see this article confirming the game nearly 2 years ago:

Not sure when OVRDark releases for PCVR, but the game launches for PSVR2 in 2 days, 27 March:

 

I would not be surprised if the game also arrives for PCVR the same day, but so far no official date on Steam:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2299950/OVRDARK_a_Do_Not_Open_story/

With Vampire the Masquerade: Justice - I hurried getting the PSVR2 version with 60 fps and reprojections, and then the game arrived on Steam some months later, had to buy it again to get 90 fps with no reprojections and better graphics. 

So I'm not going to rush in getting the PSVR2 version for OVRDark, but if needed will patiently await the PCVR version 🙂

Btw, Beardo Benjo just tried the PSVR2 version - as PS5 has similar power as a PC with GTX 1080/RTX 2070/3060 expect the exact same gameplay and graphics - but with the option to change graphics and get better performance if you have a very fast PC:

Big Shots arrives on Steam 18 April - and even being made for Quests, the high-end PCVR version has been massively enhanced, according to the devs:

"Hi there, the differences are currently the following:
- Quality Settings
- Steam VR Integrations
- Increased Visual Fidelity (improved graphics with higher resolution, post processing, realtime shadows and lighting, improved anti aliasing, HDR colors, improved vfx,...)"

At least the trailer shows some dynamic shadows:

Vuntra City is another upcoming PCVR game/experience, which has gotten much attention on Reddit since the trailer release 2 days ago - and it does look impressive:

 

Not sure we'll be able to visit Vuntra City this year though, but maybe - more info here:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2859220/Vuntra_City/

According to the devs:

"Vuntra City is an immersive city exploration game where every building can be entered. Explore a vast procedurally generated city, meet its inhabitants and uncover its secrets. Work your way up the social ladder to get invited to exclusive locations and make them your own. Or just have relaxing rides on the city's public transport, have a virtual drink at one of the many bars and cafes and enjoy your stay at a park full of greenery. The game has minimal combat and no pressure. The city is there to explore and it is entirely up to you how you want to approach it."

Smaller indie teams making grand VR games always has me worried though - making VR content is not easy, it's incredibly hard, and chances of failing are great. I'll keep my fingers crossed for this one though, also trailer shows much progress.

Wow, Outerra look as though they might be releasing something - I had to go and look that name up - I remember downloading their open world (Anteworld) - must have been 10+ years ago.  Everybody on their forums who supported them believed it was the greatest open world ever made but they just never did anything with it.  Good to see something is now happening.

I'm exactly the same 😂  VR and horror - not good.

It's official and close to breaking news, but the first PC exclusive AAA game with official VR support in 2024 is arriving at the end of April:

 

 

The hmd shown in the trailer is the Valve Index. The game should support OpenXR for optimal performance also with Meta hmds. 

The second AAA game this year with official PCVR support will be F1 24. These racing games are so demanding, not even PS5 can run them - so these are PCVR exclusive games.

We're still waiting for the OVRDark PCVR release, but the PSVR2 version has gotten several great review. Some say graphics are close to Resident Evil Remake VR. Devs just published new screenshots on Steam, so we may be getting close to a launch - and this looks potentially awesome:

ss_dbcea29aeebd984118bcb2e880be2d0ce941d01a.1920x1080.jpg

Note the high-res textures

Btw, Black Trail just arrived, like Tin Hearts the game has been in development for more than 6 years:

 

 

I'd rate the game 4/5 for now, long development time does show to some degree, but still it's real PCVR with dynamic shadows, MSAA support, high-res textures and more. And you get to switch between playing as a native American or some white bounty hunter. If you do not want to shoot native Americans, you can change them to bandits.
