New HTC Vive Releases For The Week Of 12/19/16

Along with Steam’s Winter Sale and Oculus’ as well, there’s a massive number of new Vive games to choose from this week at discounted prices. Deisim is one of the more curious highlights, giving us a god simulator from the VR perspective as you watch over your AI villagers or destroy the society they build. Mass Exodus is a fun 1v1 experience that adopts a play style utilized in games like Dead by Daylight and Friday the 13th where the VR user hunts the PC player as he attempts to escape a factory.

In the meantime, if you missed last week, 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.
