Spread the love

We’re only 2 months into 2019, but things are already hot VR-wise. 2018 was such a great year for VR with games like Firewall, Creed, Budget Cuts and Astro Bot drawing in a massive crowd of gamers to the immersive platform. Game developers are taking full advantage of VR’s popularity to create engaging games. Even though there are no major VR hardware expected to be released in 2019, the year is shaping up to be a great year for content to shine. Here at vrheadsetauthority.com, we have followed the rumors and big announcements of big games that will be released this year. Therefore, if you’re trying to jump into implausible worlds and take your exploration to the next level of immersion, you’re reading the right article.

VR headsets are only as good as the experiences they give users. We have rounded up a comprehensive list of VR games we’re excited about. These are the VR games that drew us in, and proved to be worth every cent. The games cover exploration, action, arcade and simulation genres and all the 4 major VR systems: Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and PSVR.

Keep in mind that if you choose the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive or a Windows Mixed Reality headset, you may need a powerful gaming PC with top of the line GPU, a speedy CPU and at least 3 USB ports to connect all the peripherals. VR gaming is becoming more and more accessible as PC requirements continue to become less costly. If you opt for PSVR, all you need is a PS4 or PS4 Pro console and you’re good to go!

Top 10 Virtual Reality Games of 2019

We know how overwhelming it is to discover truly immersive VR experiences so we’ve compiled a list of 10 of the best VR games available today.

  1. EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone

Here is something for action gamers. Available for PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, this space-based dogfighting game lets you take control of a spaceship. Something that makes EVE to have an edge over its competition is its awe-inspiring visuals. To play, you will be needed to avoid collisions as you fight your way through enemies.

It includes both single-player and multiplayer modes. The multiplayer options include Carrier Assault, Team Deathmatch, Wormhole, Extraction and Control game modes. You can control how you want to personalize your ship as you progress through the levels.

  1. Borderlands 2

Featuring the comic book-like graphics from the original game, Borderlands 2 will let you battle out monsters with your customized weapons, guns and rifles. Choose from one of the four playable classes – Assassin, Commando, Siren and Gunzerker.

You will enter the world Pandora and have a new responsibility as a treasure-seeking vault hunter challenging Handsome Jack –the galaxy’s most charming psychopathic dictator with your arsenal of weapons. The slow-mo ability in this version will help you slow down as you get ready for your next attack.

The game is out on PSVR and it will be available on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive later in the year.

  1. Beat Saber

This fast music and rhythm game developed by Beat Games is compatible with the entire 4 major VR headsets. It sold 100k+ copies within the first month of release. If music and motion are your thing, you should definitely try this game. It has a set up that is similar to other music games like Guitar Hero and Audiosurf.

Slash your way through music using virtual laser swords with two motion controllers that you need to swipe in the air horizontally or vertically. Here is how it works: as the music plays, the game generates various patterns of color-coded blocks on your screen. As they slide towards you, you’re required to hit the blocks with the correct controller. You will also come across obstacles that will force you to slide away or duck.

The game comes with 10 songs but you can use a track editor to load your own custom songs from within the game or better yet download your playlist from the internet.

  1. Rec Room

Primarily designed as a social experience, Rec Room offers you a free and low-impact social sandbox of objects to interact with, places to go, mini-games to play with others online or solo, and things to pick up and toss.

Perfect for a small room setting, you either can play this game from a standing or seated position. You can play it on your PSVR, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.

  1. Farpoint

Best known as the first VR game to use the PlayStation VR Aim Controller, Farpoint is growing to be a favorite among gamers. The VR Aim gun-shaped controller has motion sensing and vibration feedback to enhance your shooting experience. According to Sony, this game can track player movements on 1:1 scale. What this basically means is that you will experience a more realistic feel to Farpoint shooting mechanics.

To play this game, you are required to survive fatal enemy encounters while maneuvering deadly alien environment. The mission is to find out what happened to the rest of your research team.

  1. Minecraft VR

You have probably played Minecraft on different platforms and you game play it on your Windows Mixed Reality or Oculus Rift headset.

This creation, exploration and survival game adds a series of customized control enhancements for the VR platforms. These enhancements include VR turning, 3D audio, VR Control and virtual living room mode. This game also supports multiplayer game modes if you want to enjoy the experience with your pals.

  1. Space Pirate Trainer

This is another game in this list that is available on all the 4 major VR headsets. Specifically created for the VR experience, this arcade shooter requires you use your dual blasters and other weapons to shoot down incoming space enemies. What makes this sci-fi pirate themed game stand out is the animated and realistic art style that blends well with the fast-paced action.

The more you shoot, the higher you climb on the Space Pirate leaderboard. Besides shooting, you also need to dodge incoming attacks physically and return fire at the droids.

  1. Robo Recall

Exclusively available for the Oculus Rift, Robo Call is an action packed game that requires you to kill all the enemy combatants with an arsenal of weapons. You are the newest member of the RoboReady’s Recall Department in the heart of a robot rebellion. This game stands out due to its fast-paced action, accurate motion controls and excellent visual effects.

To play the game, your work is to defend rooftops and streets by getting rid of violent bots. The game has pretty difficult challenges and in order to get high scores, you need to upgrade your weapons and try incorporating advanced combat techniques.

  1. Project Cars 2

If you are into car racing, you should try out Project Cars 2 by Slightly Mad Studios. Optimized for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, this follow up to Project Cars straps you into the driver’s seat and lets you gain full control of the car. The selling point of this game is its expansive 180+ car line up including the Ford GT and Acura NSX, and the environmental and visual effects.

Project Cars 2 recreates the thrill of real world driving to provide you a realistic, circuit racing experience. Notable features you will love include positioning of your hands on the steering wheel, the terrain and weather systems, and breaking assistance systems. If you prefer absolute realism, disable the HUD.

  1. Bravo Team

Action lovers here we go again! Bravo Team is an intense 2-player tactical shooter that will force you to fight off the enemy as you traverse through a war-torn Eastern European city. What makes this game stand out is the option for co-op play and cover based shooting.

Unlike other shooters that have freewheeling locomotion options, you will have to take cover and use automatic movement. You can use the DualShock 4 controller or PSVR Aim Controller if you own one. The amount and strength of the enemy may have you think twice about taking a cover position in a certain position. Bravo Team is exclusively available on PSVR.
