One of the major VR headsets we have is the HTC Vive and it is really amazing to see all the new games that are coming out this year on this headset. This post is about 5 games which are interesting and releasing this year on the Vive. So it is time to take out your Vive VR headsets and experience the new games that are set to release this year.
1. Fallout 4
Starting out with any other game but Fallout 4 would be so mean! Fallout 4 is one of my favorite games and being able to play it in VR is extremely exciting. Since there is a lot of movements involved in the game, developers are thinking of using teleportation to move around.
However, when games use teleportation, it makes the gaming experience not so fun. The movements and interactions with the objects around us in the game make the gameplay more immersive but with the teleportation involved, I highly doubt how immersive the experience would be.
There are a lot of expectations from Fallout 4 in VR and I hope that the developers think this through before releasing the final version. This game is definitely one of the most awaited games of the year and it is releasing exclusively on the Vive.
The release date of the game has not been confirmed but it mostly is somewhere around the month of July or later. There is a lot of work that needs to be done on the game and it should be one of the most exciting releases that we have for the year.
2. Front Defense
Front defense is a first person shooting game which mimics the environment of World War II. In this game, you would find yourself shooting crazy amount of intruders that try and come in your area. The game is all about using different weapons for various situations.
You get to use different types of weapons in the game ranging from submachine guns. tanks, pistols, grenades and what not. It is going to be a fun game in VR since you get to interact with the environment around you and this is going to be one of those games where you actually get to be on the battlefield.
Vive surely has a lot of first person shooting games releasing this year and it might be a little difficult to say which one is going to be the best. There are a lot of games releasing this year on all the three headsets combined but the shooting games on the Vive are seriously going to be one of the best.
3. John Wick: The Impossible task
This is an FPS game where you would playing the role of the underground crime legend John Wick and show off your assassination skills by completing various missions. The first mission would be in the continental hotel and then you would be upgraded to other missions once you successful complete it.
The game reminds me of Max Payne although here the narrative is completely different and you are playing a completely different yet cool role. The VR aspect of the game makes it more interesting where you can actually hide so that people don’t see you and then go for the kill.
The game has already released on 9 Feb 2017 and you can download it from the Steam Store. It is a nice narrative action game which requires hours of immersive gameplay. Do play the game and let me know what you think about it in the comments section below.
4. Project Cars 2
Racing games are going to be great in VR is what I thought and then they came with the nauseating sensation. Hopefully, Project Cars 2 would be a much better experience and I hope that we are able to use the Vive for a longer period of time while playing the game in VR without getting motion sick.
Even motion sickness can’t stop me from getting excited about this game and that is the reason I had to include it in the list of the most awaited games of 2017. This game does get me excited about all the different cars that I get to see in VR and racing in them on exotic locations is going to be fun.
The game would include around 170 different cars from iconic brands and the largest track roster that any racing simulator game has ever had. Hoping that the game does support hours of gameplay along with the VR support, Project cars finally made it to the list. DO check out the trailer and let me know what you think about the game.
SYREN is a survival horror game where you wake up in a broken lab and all the systems are failing. However, apart from that, you have someone who is chasing you and you need to get out of there before the situation goes out of hand.
The story is based on a scientist who works in an underwater facility and carries out experiments which are horrific just to recreate the species called “Syrens”. The experiment goes wrong and now the scientist needs to escape the facility as soon as he can. But with the experiments, he creates a monster which is going to kill him if he does not leave the facility as soon as possible.
The game has a pretty good narrative and you should go ahead and play the game. The game released this year on 16 February and you can go ahead and check out the game on the Steam Store.
I hope you have gotten your Vive ready for the games and in the case you have any other games that you want to get into the list then write the name of the game and leave a reason why it should be in the list in the comment section below.
