This week’s looking pretty good if you’re a VR gamer on PC VR headsets like the Rift, Vive, and Windows VR. From the epic multiplayer mode that just launched for Archangel, dubbed Hellfire, to the new DLC expansion for Arizona Sunshine, and even a VR update for one of Steam’s most popular hardcore survival games, there is a lot going on in the VR scene right now.
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.
The Forest VR Beta, from
Price: $19.99 (Free VR support for Rift and Vive)
To be clear, this is still a beta update for The Forest VR. It’s very buggy, janky, and doesn’t really feel right yet, but it’s something. In this game you’re stranded in a creepy, dark forest after a plane crash and must scavenge to survive.
Red Matter, from Vertical Robot
Price: $34.99 (Rift)
Red Matter is an atmospheric story-driven VR puzzle adventure that’s set during a dystopian sci-fi version of the Cold War. You’ll play as Agent Epsilon, an astronaut, on a mission to one of Saturn’s moons to research a shady project. This is absolutely one worth checking out.
Archangel: Hellfire, from Skydance Interactive
Price: $19.99 (Currently Discounted, Rift and Vive)
Here we go boys and girls, this is the long-awaited free-movement multiplayer update for Archangel that we’ve been waiting for. Archangel: Hellfire is a free update for anyone that owns Archangel and features 2v2 deathmatches with three different classes of mech. You can watch an hour-long livestream above for a better look.

Arizona Sunshine: Dead Man DLC, from Vertigo Games
Price: $2.49 (Full Game required, Rift, Vive, and Windows VR)
Arizona Sunshine originally released about a year and a half ago and it’s gotten several horde mode updates with new maps over that time, but never an expansion of the single player story, until now. The new Dead Man DLC takes you back before the events of the main game and tells a brief (and affordably priced) prequel story.
