This is a bit of a slow week for PC VR. If you have a Vive then the biggest release of the week is something you’ve probably been playing for months now, but it’s a big one for Rift owners. A VR space shooter is of note as well, making its Steam debut finally. The other games are solid, but not super noteworthy.
If you missed last week’s releases they’re 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 Oculus Rift and HTC Vive games at the corresponding links.
LA Noire: The VR Case Files, from Rockstar Games
Price: $29.99 (Rift release, Vive version released last year)
LA Noire VR was our Vive Game of the Year in 2017, so it’s a big deal that it’s already making its way over to the Rift officially on Oculus Home. You take on the role of Cole Phelps, a detective in 1940s Los Angeles, CA and have free reign to drive around and explore the entire city.
Here’s our full review of the Vive version, but it does seem like the Rift release is having some bugs.
End Space, from Orange Bridge Studios
Price: $19.99 (Currently Discounted)
End Space is the VR space shooter for everyone. I say that not only because it’s an accessible and fun game, but also because if you own a VR headset of any kind then you can probably play it. After hitting Gear VR it’s since released on PSVR, Rift, and now Vive and Windows VR via Steam. It’s not overly complex, but if you miss the days of straight up singleplayer space shooters, then grab this one for sure.

NeverBound, from Enthusiast Games
NeverBound is an Early Access release, but it has some real potential. It’s a gravity-defying shooter with high-flying combat and some really challenging puzzles sprinkled throughout. Future update plans include co-op, non-VR support, and PvP. This is definitely one to watch.
