In the meantime, if you missed the previous iteration of this list, you can see those new releases here. And don’t forget that UploadVR has a Steam community group, complete with a curated list of recommendations so that you don’t have to waste any money finding out what’s good in the world of VR.
We also have a top list of the absolute best HTC Vive games — which is updated every few months with the latest and greatest options.
The Big Releases
Project Cars 2, from Slightly Mad Studios
Price: $59.99 (More Expensive Editions Also Available)
Project Cars 2 is the big one that racing fans have been waiting on for quite some time. When we previewed it we called it perhaps the best VR racing sim ever made thus far and the full game may actually live up to that hype with its VR support built-in from day one.
Recommendation: Racing sim fans should not miss this one.
Xing: The Land Beyond, from White Lotus Interactive
Xing: The Land Beyond is a love letter to fans of old-school adventure games like Myst. You’ll poke around various other-worldly environments as you explore, solve puzzles, and marvel at the game’s sheer beauty.
Recommendation: If you like games like Myst then you need to play this. Here’s our latest impressions.
Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope, from Croteam
Price: $39.99 (Currently discounted as of publication)
Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope is what happens when a game developer known for over-the-top action, violence, and gore decides to dabble in the art of VR development. It’s mostly just a wave shooter, but it’s hyper-polished and has tons of content.
Recommendation: Absolutely for fans of bombastic action. Here are some early impressions.
Eternity Warriors VR, from Vanimals
Price: $14.99 (Currently discounted as of publication)
Have you ever wanted to play an action-RPG in the vein of a first-person Diablo, but in VR? Then Eternity Warriors VR might scratch an itch for some delicious dungeon crawling inside immersive headsets.
Recommendation: Worth it if you’ve got some friends to adventure with.
