Oculus Quest’s 2019 line-up is looking stronger by the day, but one of VR’s most popular genres has been strangely subdued on the device thus far. Horror games, one of the most powerful VR experiences out there, have only been represented by Face Your Fears 2 thus far. Well good news, scare fans; Quest is getting one of VR’s most terrifying titles.
The Exorcist: Legion VR is heading to the standalone headset this year, Oculus has confirmed. The port should offer all five episodes of the original game that released every few months over the course of 2017 and 2018. It’s not clear if it will be released as one package or if you’ll be able to pick up episodes individually.
Interestingly, this version of the game will also support the ability to scale the environment to the physical space users have around them.
It’s another big get for Quest. We gave Legion VR a rare 9/10 in our review, calling it one of the best VR horror experiences yet made.
“The slow-building tension is expertly paced, each and every scare feels visceral and dangerous, and the sheer sense of terror you feel while methodically exploring the richly detailed environments is staggering,” David Jagneaux wrote. “It honestly felt like I could hear the voices inside my own head and I could feel the heat from my crucifix as I stared down the faces of demon and eradicated the evil within. The Exorcist: Legion VR will turn even the most hardened horror fans into whimpering piles of fear.”
Sounds perfectly scary, then. I’ll stick to Vacation Simulator, thanks.
