In Bebylon Battle Royle, humans have discovered an immortality pill which means there are no more deaths and no more aging. Since immortality has been achieved, humans are more competitive towards gaining fame, success and wealth.

This game has been built in order to give you a VR experience of a park that is filled with living dinosaurs. If you have ever had the fantasy of actually feeling how the Jurassic park must have felt then you have this game on your side.

You can interact with them and enjoy the beautiful graphics of the game. The game was going to be released in 2017, but eventually got postponed to 2018.
The game In Death has a pretty strong narrative on how the heaven has been abandoned and you are the only one who can bring harmony into the world back again. The entire game revolves around exploration and fighting for peace.
This game is probably going to have a lot of narration, exploration and a really engaging storyline. If you are looking for some long hours of gameplay then this game might actually give you that! The game is releasing this year and with no exact date of release, I guess we just need to wait.
