Steam Next Fest, the newly renamed Steam Game Festival, is starting its week-long PC gaming celebration on June 16th, bringing along with it free demos from upcoming VR titles, developer livestreams, and Q&As.

As part of Steam Next Fest announcement earlier this month, Valve threw out a video showing off the playable VR demos coming to the week-long festival, naming five games and promising “so many more.”

Here’s the list of those five mentioned in the video. We also linked that below so you can get a peek at each game in action:

If this month’s Steam Next Fest is anything like the Game Festival back in February, we’re expecting to see many more VR game demos, as earlier this year the platform attracted around 20 titles. We haven’t seen the full list of participating games, but we’ll sure to keep you updated as they’re revealed.

If you want to get a jump start on at least one of the VR games on offer, Against already has a free demo, which features a single level of its gritty rhythm-based, neo-noir bad-guy-punching goodness.

Outside of PC VR games, Steam Next Fest is also hosting demos across a number of PC genres including adventure games, RPGs, puzzles, platformers, and strategy games.

The week will also play host to developer chats, live streams, and include new info on upcoming games. Valve calls the format “an opportunity to get early feedback from players and build an audience for a future launch on Steam.”

Steam Next Fest goes from June 16th to June 22nd. You can sign up for an official reminder here, which can send you either an email or push notification from the Steam mobile app.

      Why do you keep spamming your trash here?

      • None of that is mine babe, also, one man’s trash is another’s treasure. You’re welcome!

        • Nobody likes you. Go away, you spammy waste of blood and hair.

        • Andrew Jakobs

          Problem is, you are ‘spamming’ stuff that’s not directly related to the article. Why not create your own site and report all the news you gather instead of spamming articles.

          • Dude, from swearing and insulting you go to faux advice mode, block me & move on with your life if you have one outside this act.

          • Andrew Jakobs

            Maybe it’s you who should just behave and just not spam instead of just normally responding to the article.

          • Okay, you’re a hopeless stalker who can’t even cosnistently use spam with or without quotes and you’re blocked, feel free to keep replying to me, I’ll be blissfully unaware of your existence as you could have been of mine if your goal really was to discuss the topic.

    I’m glad Steam is finally acting self-aware and trying to lure more interest to their marketplace before Facebook steals more triple-a titles, but I doubt this will be enough.

  • The 16th we also launch our renewed HitMotion! It will be a cool day
