Virtual Reality Games

Virtual Reality peripherals such as Oculus Quest, Valve Index, or PlayStation VR open the door to imagination, maximum player immersion, and innovation, both on PC and PlayStation consoles. We show you which are the best VR games that you can play right now.

2021 begins unbeatable in terms of video games, after 2020 full of great launches for old-gen consoles and the arrival of PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. However, it is also a good opportunity to see the advances in VR technology, and how they can influence the future of video games, both on PC and on consoles. The emerging Metaverse is the future of Virtual Reality in the next 10-15 years and we must also know about what is metaverse and its overall effects.

Half-Life: Alyx

The legendary Valve saga arrived a few months ago to demonstrate the potential of VR technology ... and it more than succeeded. Standard-bearer of the Valve Index PC peripheral, Half-Life Alyx is a masterpiece almost at the level of the first two games, telling us about the events that occurred between Half-Life and Half-Life 2 from the perspective of Alyx Vance and offering many variants playable.

The game totally immerses us in the first-person experience of Half-Life, with shootouts, stealth phases, puzzles, and full interaction with the scenarios, and its enormous quality almost justifies the purchase of the Valve Index . Of course, you will have to pay about 1000 euros to get it, and this is the only weak point of the spectacular Half-Life Alyx.

Beat Saber

One of the best options virtual reality has given us. Do you like rhythm games? Well, imagine mixing this formula with VR and some Star Wars-style lightsaber touches. That's Beat Saber, a fresh and innovative proposal that you can enjoy on PS4 and PS5 with PlayStation VR, and also on your PC. Developed by Hyperbolic Magnetism, this title offers an experience that is hard to forget.

Beat Saber

Beat Saber immerses you in scenarios set with electronic music, and we will have the objective of cutting the cubes and figures that are directed towards us with a lightsaber. The peculiarity is that we will have to cut them following the rhythm of the music; We can enjoy different modes, such as the campaign, custom levels, or the fun mode for two players.

Astro Bot Rescue Mission

The charismatic Astro has become the cutest pet on PlayStation. Leaving aside the innovative and surprising Astro's Playroom that comes pre-installed on PS5, this virtual reality adventure for PS4 offers us one of the best platform experiences that the PS4 catalog has. Astro Bot Rescue Mission was developed by Japan Studio and released for PS VR in 2018.

Accompany the friendly Astro through 26 fun levels that mix puzzles, platforms, and battles against different enemies, while we go through the five different worlds and defeat the final boss of each one of them.

Nebulous

Although it was launched in 2016, Nebulous has never stopped being an excellent option to enjoy VR technology. Available for PS4 and PC in its virtual reality version (it is also on Xbox One, but without VR), Nebulous offers us a physics-based puzzle proposal, and is compatible with different peripherals such as PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest and its successor in PC .

PlayStation VR

The only option to enjoy virtual reality on the console, on PS4, specifically. These are helmets that bring VR to all users thanks to a contained price and a wide variety of entertainment proposals in the Sony system.

Get it at the best price

We will put ourselves in the shoes of Commander Dash Johnson, and we will have to solve the intricate puzzles of each scenario until we find the black hole that gives us access to the next phase.

Tetris Effect

Do you like classic Tetris? If so, you have to try the imposing Tetris Effect , a 3D reformulation of the legendary block game that can be played in virtual reality with PlayStation VR and peripherals like Oculus Quest on PC. It is an unbeatable experience, as you will feel the effects, the music, the sounds and each action as if you were really in each level of Tetris.

Mixing a rhythmic-themed shooter, Rez Infinite proposes you to massacre numerous enemies while enjoying its addictive soundtrack and an incredible rate of 60 frames per second.

Thanks to PlayStation VR, you can enjoy Rez Infinite as if you were really in its intricate musical levels, riddled with enemies, final bosses, rival waves and all of it spiced up with the best techno music. You can also play it with PS Move.

Visage

A terrifying proposal that will freeze your blood thanks to VR technology. Visage is a first-person survival horror that immerses you in an old mansion during the eighties, and you can play it on PS4 with PS VR, on PC with various peripherals, and on Xbox One without VR mode. The SadSquare Studios game bets on psychological terror and exploration as the main cards for players.

Influenced by Silent Hill, Resident Evil, or Kojima's canceled PT, Visage is a horror experience infested with ghosts, spirits, puzzles, nightmare creatures, and all while controlling Dwayne, a man who wants to free himself from the curse. that has been haunting him for years. If you want to be scared, this is one of the best options.

Resident Evil 7 VR

The seventh installment of the legendary Capcom saga left aside the playable and visual style of Resident Evil 4 to bet on a psychological terror in the first person. Located in the Baker Mansion, this Resident Evil 7 can be played in VR mode on PS4 and PC, thanks to its compatibility with Oculus Quest or PS VR. This increases the experience of terror and desolation of Ethan, our protagonist.

Resident Evil 7

As in the original Resident Evil installments, we will have to solve puzzles, explore the mansion, face horrifying enemies and flee from our pursuers, all under a dark plot that gives rise to the next installment, Resident Evil 8 Village, which will be released in this 2021 and that juicy leaks are already taking place . If you've already played Resident Evil 7, replaying it thanks to virtual reality can be a highly recommended option .

Moss

If you like platform games, Moss is a very interesting option to play on PS4 and PC. It is a third-person adventure where we control the mouse Quill, and also a magical light that supervises each of our actions. Our objective will be to discover the mysteries that a huge forest hides, while we help Quill with various magical powers so that he can advance.

Although it is not excessively long since it is in full English, Moss is a magical, fun, and fresh adventure that is one of the best PS VR titles, thanks to its small but fascinating miniature universe, while we observe what happens in humans reality. Feel free to give it a try, and we hope to see a sequel to this cool VR video game soon.

Blood & Truth

The James Bond anthology has influenced many video games, and this is the case with this Blood & Truth for PS4. This first-person shooter uses VR technology to immerse us in its cinematic story, where we will take control of Ryan Marks, an elite soldier of the special forces who will have to rescue his family from a criminal Empire, on the streets from London .
