VR enthusiasts finally have some new game announcements to look forward to. Last night during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, we got brand new trailers for some of the biggest VR titles coming to PC and console this year.
For starters, we'll get some updates out of the way. Among Us VR, which was announced last year, did get a new trailer with new gameplay footage showing off the fully 3D rendition of the game but unfortunately there is no release date yet. The game will be coming to the Quest, PC VR and PlayStation VR. We also finally got news on what's next for Resident Evil 4 VR, which is getting a Mercenaries mode update.
One of the best original VR games, Moss, received a sequel for PlayStation VR recently, but that exclusivity is coming to an end. Moss: Book 2 is heading to the Quest 2 this Summer. There is also a sequel to Espire on the way, one of the best stealth games currently available for virtual reality. Espire 2 will be heading to the Quest 2 this November.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners also returns this year with Chapter 2: Retribution, which will be available for the Quest 2 and the Oculus Rift. You can get Oculus exclusive PC VR games to run on other headsets, but it requires jumping through a few hoops. Presumably, this game will also release on Steam eventually.
A few weeks ago, a new asymmetrical multiplayer Ghostbusters video game was officially announced. As it turns out, something similar will also be coming to VR. Developer nDreams is developing Ghostbusters VR for PC VR, Quest 2 and PlayStation VR in collaboration with Sony Pictures Virtual Reality.
The final three major announcements from the showcase include RUINSMAGUS, a VR JRPG coming to Quest 2 and Steam, Cities VR – a virtual reality version of Cities: Skylines, and Bonelab, the next VR game from the developers behind Boneworks, bringing fully realistic physics-based gameplay to Quest 2 and PC VR headsets.

KitGuru Says: There is a lost to look forward to on the VR front over the course of this year. Bonelab, Espire 2 and Among Us VR will all be on my radar to play on day-one. Are there any newly announced VR games that you are looking forward to?
