The world of virtual reality gaming is growing larger, with the Oculus Quest 2 becoming arguably the most popular and easiest way to explore VR. Whether you’re looking to play some of the best games the Oculus Quest 2 has to offer or just looking to explore the wider world of VR, you’re in for a great experience.
However, it may be easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of games to choose from, so we’ve collected some of the biggest unreleased Oculus Quest 2 games related to release for the platform in the coming months.
Little Cities VR
Little Cities VR puts players in charge of their tiny city, with control over everything from moving residents in, making sure there’s space for certain activities, and creating the busiest metropolis you possibly can.
The game also features various island themes, each with its own set of unique buildings that players can unlock as they grow their cities from tiny settlements to bustling city centers. Everything from a thermal spa and water park to a volcano island are available to choose from, giving players full control.
Release date: April 21, 2021
Green Hell VR
Green Hell VR is an “open-world survival experience” that is set in the Amazon rainforest. This version is based on the successful PC game Green Hell and focuses on players being left alone in the jungle with no food or equipment. In the game, players will have to learn real-life survival techniques in order to keep themselves alive, including taking down trees for shelter, building fires, and more.
Of course, no survival game would be complete without threats to you and Green Hell comes equipped with them in the form of various tribes filled with warriors who will be on the lookout for you as you try to survive.
Release date: Q1 2022
Cities: VR is a city-building and management game made just for virtual reality players. An adaptation of the incredibly popular Cities: Skylines, the game acts much like other city-building games, allowing players to build up their base of operations and the surrounding neighborhood. You’ll also be able to handle everything from the various services your city will offer to the economics of the growing landscape.
To better utilize VR devices like the Quest 2, Cities: VR will feature tactile feedback from the Oculus’ Touch controllers, as well as a palette of tools that will pop up to make building your city much easier.
Release date: Spring 2022
The Last Clockwinder
Not too much is known about The Last Clockwinder, but the game is described as a “VR automation game about building clockwork contraptions out of your own clones.” According to the plot description, your aim is to repair an ancient clock tower that is built into the trunk of a gigantic tree. Along the way, you’ll use your own handmade creations to grow plants, harvest resources, and do more en route to saving the day.
Judging by the visual style of the game, The Last Clockwinder will be packed with fantastical characters and designs. A release date for the game hasn’t been fully confirmed, however, so fans will just have to keep an eye out as we get closer to the summer.
Release date: Summer 2022
The combination of mechs and sports has been done before in virtual reality, but Resolution Games is looking to perfect the crossover in Ultimechs. In Ultimechs, players will shoot their mech’s fists at metal balls in the hopes of guiding it into an opponent’s goal.
Aside from piloting a mech, players will find themselves controlling the trajectory of the rocket fist after it has been fired, lending a unique perspective to the point where an appendage comes into contact with a ball in the world of sports.
Release date: TBD 2022
Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom
Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom is inspired by the award-winning gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy as gang leader Tommy Shelby. The VR experience will be produced by digital entertainment studio Maze Theory, which has previously made video games based on the Doctor Who franchise.
Described as “an authentic, embodied experience set in an atmospheric 1920s England,” the VR title will let players choose their own path in various moments of “subversion, wish fulfillment, narrative intrigue, and gripping set pieces.” Peaky Blinders: The King’s Ransom will also star Cillian Murphy and Paul Anderson, and allow players to enter the world of the hit show.
Release date: TBD 2022
