Whoever said the end of the year would be quiet? New releases are pouring on in as 2018 draws to a close and, while they’re not all home runs, there’s definitely some interesting stuff to check out here.
What else is to come? You can find out right here in our December games list.
Gungrave VR, from Iggymob
Price: $39.99 (PSVR)
The long-awaited next entry in the little-known Gungrave series is finally here and it’s, well, it’s not brilliant. Gungrave VR takes the ‘gun fu’ mechanics of the PS2-era originals and dressed them up in a brief new campaign that doesn’t really translate very well to headsets. If you’re a die-hard fan of the series you may find something to like here but everyone else best steer clear.
Arca’s Path from Dream Reality Interactive
Price: $19.99 (Rift, Vive, Windows VR, PSVR, Go, Gear)
The debut VR game from DRI is finally here. Arca’s Path is an engaging VR marble maze with an enjoyable story and gorgeous presentation. You simply need to look in the direction you want your ball to travel but it’s not long before things get tricky with environmental obstacles and other issues. This is an enjoyable VR time-killer that does a great job catering to both newbies and veterans.
Awake: Episode One, from Start VR
Price: $7.99 (Vive)
A brilliant new short film that makes great use of volumetric capture to tell an emotionally overwhelming story. Awake follows a tortured soul as he digs into his past to uncover the mystery behind his missing partner.
Make Noise, from the BBC
Price: Free (Go)
The BBC’s latest VR experience is a vibrant celebration of the suffragette movement. You use your own voice to interact with the experience in clever new ways.
