The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners – Chapter 2: Revenge
The first Saints and Sinners game is coming back with a new chapter, returning to New Orleans to follow the results of the previous game. The trailer features a few short gameplay shots and story details. Revenge is due later this year.
NFL Pro Era
StatusPro has created the first licensed NFL game for VR, NFL Pro Era. The player is an NFL quarterback who can participate in drills and compete in virtual games.
VR between us
Extremely popular among us is finally coming to VR, and that sounds pretty ugly. Everything that puts the player in the thick of action in the new VR perspective seems a little more claustrophobic. It is coming to Meta Quest 2 by the end of 2022. Meta is also partnering with Shell Games on three new VR projects.
Red Matter 2
The sequel to Red Matter, the sci-fi narrative adventure game begins where it left off earlier. Red Mater 2 adds new gameplay mechanics and puzzles. Developers Vertical Robot will release more details about the game later this year.
Aspire 2 is a sequel to the Stealth Action title, bringing back the dubious protagonist POE from the first title. It will have a single-player story campaign, multiplayer co-op campaigns, new gadgets and an advanced AI system. It is slated to launch in November 2022.
Algae: Book II
Moss: Book II, which has already launched on PlayStation VR, is coming to Meta Quest 2 this summer. Developers Polyark also showed a new gameplay trailer on Quest 2.
We got another look at Ruins Magus, a VR JRPG developed by Characterbank. The player’s character is a novice magician and he must embark on a series of quests. It is set to launch on Quest 2 and Steam VR later this year.
Cities VR is one of the few games announced in this showcase that has an exact release date: it is set to launch on April 28. It is a new translation of the city-building sim, with a street-level perspective and VR-friendly UI.
