If you own an Oculus Rift then get ready for all these new and interesting game releases that you would see soon.
1. The American Dream

“The American Dream is a Satire about Gun Culture”- Polygon
This line best describes the game as it is indeed a satire about the gun culture. In the game, you would be using guns to cook, run errands, drive and various other, basic day to day activities. You will also be learning a lot about different types of gun and pistols.
This highly anticipated game is releasing in 2018 and the release date has not yet been confirmed.
2. Alice’s Lullaby: Albino Lullaby Episode 2

Alice’s Lullaby Episode 2 is a phycological thriller where you would be trying to escape the dark in the Victorian town. As you move forward in the game, you will unravel some twisted narrative that will tell you more about your purpose and help you finish the game.
This one is definitely going to be one of the best horror thriller games of the year and if interested you can pre-purchase the game from Steam VR right now.
Release Date: 2018
This game is a first-person shooting game and you can play it in three modes. The first one being, Search and Destroy where the fight is against two teams and one team plants a bomb while the other one tries to defuse it. The second mode is each and every player defending themselves and the one who lasts wins the game.
The last mode is the one where you need to take control over a few areas in the map and the team with the maximum points wins the game. The Alvo is going to be releasing this year although the date is not yet finalized.
Release Date: January 16, 2018
This game unlike the previous one is a combat-free game. In Anamorphine you would play the role of the protagonist who is going to uncover the secrets of his life and the story is going to come back to him as flashbacks and memories.
The game is all about converging all the pieces of memory and uncovering and enjoying the experience in VR. The game is releasing on January 16, so it is going to be an easy wait for this one.
5. Apex Construct
Apex construct is a game where there is going to be a really strong storyline along with some combat. The narration unfolds as the game progresses and you will be able to understand how and why are things happening around you.
The game has gorgeous landscapes and you are going to be greeted by some creepy creatures. If you are out in a Journey in VR then you might as well play this game as it will get pretty interesting. In the case, you haven’t seen the trailer yet, here you go-

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. Although you are not going to get attacked by any one of them, instead it is more like a theme park.
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.
7. Bebylon Battle Royale
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 now results in constant battles between humans or we can say, babies, as that is the age when the pill is consumed by humans which has eventually stopped the aging process. This game is going to be pretty interesting and is soon to release early in 2018.
8. Classroom Aquatic
The game revolves around a foreign exchange student who joins the school of dolphins to spend an entire semester there. He gets a lot of unexpected tests which have to be answered and being new to school does not help his situation. In order to pass these tests, he tries to cheat and get all the answers from the other dolphins who are answering their papers.
The game doesn’t end there, the dolphins in the classroom are very smart! Once they find you are trying to copy answers from them, they might try to hide their answers or even complaint to the invigilator. The game was supposed to release in 2017 but is finally releasing this year.
