The best VR games of 2018


Virtual reality (VR) has been on the verge of going mainstream over the past few years, but it appears it did so only in 2018, for whatever reason. This is changing fast. Read about the best VR games this year!

 

EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone

Valkyrie – Warzone is a dog-fighting game set in space. Admittedly, that doesn’t sound too exciting, and one would wonder why we put it at no. 1. It definitely deserves this spot though – the game puts the player in control of a spaceship in a series of single- and multiplayer game modes. Multiplayer options include Control, the Team Deathmatch, Carrier Assault, Extraction, and Wormhole game modes.

Players overcome hordes of enemies and avoid damage and collisions at the helm of one of more than ten ship types. You can control how your ships are customized as they go along because progression is flexible.

One major advantage of this amazing VR game lies in its excellent visuals. The ships feature laser projectiles and excellent levels of detail, lighting up magnificently against the background of majestic space.

 

Skyrim

Skyrim features an intricate world, excellent writing, and a remarkable sense of scale. It has been one of the best games ever since it was transported into virtual reality. Regardless of whether you’re playing on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or PlayStation VR, the entire journey has been developed to adapt to the medium through new movement options and control methods.

Skyrim VR should not be passed up if you own a headset!

 

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

KTNE can be played on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and PlayStation VR. If there was ever a game that put your friendships to the test, this is it. In this game, you have to talk and collaborate with your fellow players to keep a complex bomb from going off. Players are split into two groups: a few experts and one actual bomb defuser. The latter can examine the bomb, but they don’t have access to the manual. Experts can access the manual, but they can’t see the bomb.
