Zennith: The Last City

Zennith: The Last City is a VR based MMORPG in the early stages of development but still looks to be full of promise. It has customisable characters, with special powers and a  procedural quest system or the ability to choose your own adventure. There's also the promise of an expansive world to explore and plenty of mini-games to keep you interested as well. 

Carve Snowboarding

  • Game type: Extreme sports
  • Publisher: Chuhai Labs

Do you miss tearing up the slopes? Or have wonderful memories of the N64 classic 1080° Snowboarding? Then Carve Snowboarding may well be the one for you. An arcade snowboarding game with customisable runs, unlockable boards and equipment and much more besides. All the thrills of snowboarding without any of the danger or actual snow. 

After the Fall

From the team that bought us the awesome Arizona Sunshine comes a new game that promises "epic" VR action with four-player co-op goodness. Playing this one, you'll be thrust into a post-apocalyptic world full of mutated, deformed and dangerous undead as well as a slew of bosses to deal with as well. 

The Quest version of After the Fall, is set to launch at the same as the PC VR and PlayStation VR versions in the summer. If you love killing zombies with your friends, then you'll be pleased to hear this one also has cross-platform support for multiplayer as well. 

Sniper Elite VR

We've long been fans of the Sniper Elite games and when word came that there was going to be a new outing in VR we were curious how that would work and what it would look like. If the trailer is anything to go by, it's going to be absolutely superb. Not only will you be sneaking about with silenced pistols but also sniping and dual-wielding too. Taking out Nazi enemies with supreme accuracy and satisfying trigger action too. 

Song in the Smoke

Song in the Smoke is a survival adventure game that will throw players into a  prehistoric world full of strange beasts. Playing this one, you'll be doing all the usual crafting, foraging and fighting for survival, only in VR. 

But the developers say it's much more than that:

"With Song in the Smoke, we dove even deeper into unknown territory: a VR survival adventure, with all new rules, in a completely new medium. Song in the Smoke is unlike anything we’ve done before, and it’s our most ambitious title yet. The experience is so completely immersive and engaging, the forest is alive all around you in the extra dimension provided by VR. We’re thrilled to be offering an intense adventure that couldn’t be captured in any other way."

Lone Echo II

Lone Echo II is returning to Oculus Rift and will be available to play on Quest Ii with Oculus Link or Air Link if you have a gaming PC. Playing Lone Echo II you'll be exploring the rings of Saturn in a zero-g atmosphere with tools on hand to deal with various challenges and mysteries you'll encounter along the way. 

Area Man Lives

Area Man Lives is a VR game with a very hands-on vibe. You'll be poking and prodding the world in all manner of ways and interacting with it using your voice too. 

"AREA MAN LIVES is a quirky VR game that mixes a comic book world with an over-the-top radio drama. Using your own voice to talk to characters and your high-tech monkey gloves interact with the world, you begin to piece together what’s happening in this decidedly odd town on the Oregon coast. As you live inside a classic radio drama, talk to its invisible characters and interact with the environments the story paints in your mind, you’ll start to notice how your actions inside the station impact your listening audience."

Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual

Sam & Max: This Time It's Virtual is a VR adventure game featuring the classic dog and cat duo. It's being developed by Happy Giant and even features several developers that worked on the original Sam & Max: Hit the Road by LucasArts in 1992. 

"The upcoming VR action-adventure game features the bewilderingly durable comic book duo in either their fourth, seventh, or twentieth video game outing (depending on how you’re counting). After decades of rescuing bigfoots, playing games of high-stakes poker against B-List celebrities, and preserving reality from cosmic nogoodniks, the world-renowned dog and rabbity thing are on a recruitment drive to fatten up the ranks of the Freelance Police… and they’ve come to you for help! Dive head first into the funky world of virtual reality as Sam and Max push you through their mostly-relevant gauntlet of training courses designed to test your mettle and break your brain… and watch out for the hidden menace lurking in the training grounds that may spell doom for us all!"

Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell

Ubisoft has already dabbled in a few VR games in recent times, with Star Trek Bridge Crew being another solid favourite of ours. Now the company is planning on bringing two of its biggest franchises to VR as well. Both Assassin's Creed and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell are getting the VR treatment at some point soon.
