Meta dumped an avalanche of VR news today in its hour-long Quest Gaming Showcase livestream, revealing trailers and info on more than a dozen new games coming to Quest 2, Quest Pro, and probably also the newly unveiled Quest 3 headset.

Here’s what we’re most excited about:

Asgard’s Wrath 2

That’s right, the sequel to hit Rift title Asgard’s Wrath (2019) is coming to Quest this winter, bringing with it a ton of new places to explore and a cast of new companions and puzzles. Meta’s Sanzaru Games says we should expect phsyics-based melee and a more intuitive combat system altogether, not to mention a brand-new realm to explore which will bring us to a reimagined Ancient Egypt. Catch the full announce here. Also, check out the trailer on YouTube (age-restricted).

I Expect You To Die 3: Cog in the Machine

We’ve known about the upcoming sequel to the hit spy-flavored puzzle game I Expect You To Die, but it seems every new trailer that pops up is just another opportunity to salivate at the Bond-style escape room’s ingenious puzzles and patently dastardly villains. It’s coming to the Quest platform and PSVR 2 “soon,” developers Schell Games says. Catch the full announce here.

Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable

The trailer for Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable is admittedly not gameplay, although it’s easy to see where it’s headed, as Japanese studio UNIVRS seems to be heavily suggesting gameplay elements here. It’s bringing both single player and co-op modes to the Titan-killing, swing-tastic game, letting you play in Japanese or English, subs included. It’s coming to Quest platform in winter 2023, which is a little later than the promised summer 2023 launch window previously announced, but better late than never. Catch the full announce here.

Dungeons of Eternity

Although it’s hard to get super excited about a roguelike dungeon crawler—there are a few really great ones out there already—Dungeons of Eternity is coming to the Quest platform this year from a studio called Othergate, which was founded by a bunch of ex-Oculus Studios game designers. The 1-3 player co-op dungeon crawling RPG also incorporates physics-based combat, which is pretty refreshing to see since it focuses on melee as well as archery and magic. Catch the full announce here.

Stranger Things VR

TV show game tie-ins are pretty hit and miss (mostly miss), but we can actually vouch for the studio developing this Stranger Things VR game, coming to Quest this fall from VR pioneers Tender Claws. You may know Tender Claws for its games Virtual Virtual Reality 1 and 2 and The Under Presents, three spectacular titles that really just get what makes VR great. Be the bad guy, Vecna. Do bad shit. Catch the full announce here.

Assassin’s Creed: Nexus VR

Ok, just one more, but it’s definitely outside of our lineup since we didn’t exactly get an eye-full of Ubisoft’s upcoming Assassin’s Creed game today like we hoped, which is now confirmed to be officially called Assassin’s Creed: Nexus VR (the only real news about AC from the showcase).

The actual reveal is said to come during Ubisoft’s Forward livestream event taking place on June 12th though, so we’re closer than ever to learning whether Ubisoft is set to faithfully translate the franchise’s high-flying, time-tripping assassin into VR. Catch the full announce here.

There were a ton of games announced today. Which one are you looking forward to the most? Let us know in the comments below!

  • ViRGiN

    It’s cool to see entire frontpage of showcase games.
    When valve drop steam vr “fest”, nobody cared lol

    • Ookami

      obsessed lol

    • NotMikeD

      While I don’t share your apparent hatred of Valve and disdain for all things PCVR, I tend to agree with you on their VR Fests.

  • -thought Silent Slayer was the only game suggesting “new VR gameplay idea.”
    -Excited to see SWERY is coming to VR with Death Game Hotel (though it looks like bizarre gross anime torture porn. huh. who is it for?)
    -jumped out of my chair at 7th Guest. hoping it nails that puzzle feel of The Room games. curious if the holographic video looks good on quest hardware. but really it’s just a nostalgia play the totally worked on me. (dig how the old skeleton hand cursor is now in your VR ghost hands)

    • NotMikeD

      “thought Silent Slayer was the only game suggesting “new VR gameplay idea.”
      Is Five Nights At Freddy’s animatronic repair mini-game a joke to you??

      “jumped out of my chair at 7th Guest.”
      Woah I stated I nearly fell out of my chair at the announcement in a recent Reddit post! Did you copy me? Cause if not, that trailer knocked a LOT of butts out of seats.
      And yeah, agree, love the skeleton hand cursor touch.

  • Vampire: The Masquerade seems to take a lot of inspiration from Dishonored and I’m all for that.

    • Jeroham Ortiz

      Exactly what I thought. I’ve been wanting a VR Dishonored for awhile now. This might be it or at least similar. Plus Vampire series is good.

  • Totius

    Asgard’s 2 is the only interesting thing, the rest is incredibly bad.. what has happened to the vr world after the good times of Wilson’s hearth, LA Noire, Lone Echo? I can’t believe it, they all look like mobile games (what they are, of course, in the end).

    I save Agard 2. The first game, despite being billions of kilometers away from God of War, was a great try from Sanzaru team. They really had a few great innovative ideas.

    I hope Ubisoft will not deception us.

    Also………………….. where is GTA? Should we wait another couple of years for a mobile game?

    • GTASA is for Quest 3, I’ll wager.

      • ViRGiN

        It will be a very bad look to keep it Q3 only, I think they didn’t showcase it now with confirmed Q2 compatibility not to steal all the showcase for a single game.

        • Ookami

          if it was ready to showcase, they would showcase it 100%. It’s obviously not ready yet. Maybe soon, but who knows.

      • Chris Meeks

        Which would suck considering Zuck sold it as a Quest 2 exclusive.
        “We’re excited to announce GTASA is coming VERY soon to the Quest 7.”

    • ApocalypseShadow

      They won’t show that until Quest 3 announcement. While they dangled that carrot in front of Quest 2 users for months.

    • Raw Power

      Asgard 2 looks trash too

  • NotMikeD

    No love for ‘The 7th Guest’ in your top 5?

    Tell me you’re under the age of 35 without telling me you’re under the age of 35.

  • NL_VR

    A good showcase and some really good games

  • Raw Power

    Enjoy playing 60+ hours of ps2 graphics lmao

    • ViRGiN

      Enjoy half life anusx for the next decade.

  • Max-Dmg

    When is My Documents VR coming out?

  • disqus_o4N8KCTF90

    I hope dungeons of eternity comes to psvr2 although I will no doubt end up getting a quest 3 as well anyway as I’m a sucker for new technology.
