    The Biggest PSVR Releases Of The Week 06/17/18

    We haven’t been doing release lists for the past few weeks because E3-prep and then E3 itself, but now that things are settling back down here we go! We’ve got two spooky scary experiences and one tundra-themed adventure to pick from.

    UploadVR also launched the ‘UploadVR PSVR Community’ on PlayStation 4! Join up, find other gamers to play with, and engage in discussions with them. Also, don’t forget to check out our list of the 9 Best PlayStation VR Games if you need any extra inspiration.

    Kona VR, from 

    Price: $5.99 (Requires Full Game, $14.99)

    Drivable vehicles, a huge explorable environment, and some gnarly survival mechanics all punctuate this thoughtful, immersive, adventure game. The VR support has been a long time in the making, so this is good news indeed.

    The Exorcist: Legion VR, from LegionVR

    Price: $6.99 for 1st Episode (Then $24.99 Season Pass)

    To this day, A Chair in a Room: Greenwater is one of the most terrifying VR horror experiences I’ve ever had. It’s excellent. The creators of that game are back with The Exorcist: Legion VR. This is an episodic series in which you buy the first episode separately and then you can get a season pass for all current and future episodes.

    We want to get a review of this up sooner rather than later so check back next week.

    Rooms: The Unsolvable Puzzle, from Prismplus Co.

    Price: $13.99

    This unique little game is a mixture of diorama-style presentation and escape-room puzzle gameplay. With over 140 stages there is definitely plenty of content. The PSVR support is optional, so you can play the game without if you’d like as well.

    The Biggest Rift, Vive, And Windows VR Releases Of The Week 06/17/18

    We haven’t been doing release lists for the past few weeks because E3-prep and then E3 itself, but now that things are settling back down here we go! The big one for Rift users this week is the free Open Beta weekend for Echo Combat, plus an Early Access VR title that most know about at this point is finally getting a full 1.0 launch.

    And don’t forget that UploadVR has a Steam community group, complete with a curated list of recommendations so that you don’t have to waste any money finding out what’s good in the world of VR. We also have a top list of the absolute best Oculus Rift and HTC Vive games at the corresponding links.

    Echo Combat, from Ready at Dawn

    Price: Free (Open Beta Weekend, Rift)

    This isn’t a full release, or even an actual release technically at all, because it’s just an Open Beta weekend. But if you’ve got a Rift you owe it to yourself to hop into Echo VR and try out the Echo Combat game mode. It’s basically Overwatch in VR and zero-G and it’s so much fun.

    For more, read our hands-on impressions and watch both of our past livestreams from this week.

    QuiVr, from Blueteak

    Price: $19.99 (Currently Discounted for Rift, Vive, and Windows VR)

    QuiVr is one of the original VR wave shooters. When it first hit Early Access developers were just figuring out how to make VR games and they were quick to nail the look and feel of shooting a bow and arrow. Now there’s a full game built around that mechanic with single player, multiplayer, co-op, and lots of stuff to do.

    Early Access impressions here, we’ll have a livestream and full review next week.

    Sniper Rust VR, from Zatun Game Studio

    Price: $9.99 (Rift)

    Shooting guns in VR is just so, so satisfying. Shooting at enemies that are far away is even more fun, sometimes. So, this is a whole game about that. The presentation is high-quality and the mechanics feel good. If you love sniping, then check this one out for some single player action.

    Budget Cuts, from Neat Corporation (Last Week Release)

    Price: $29.99 (Rift, Vive)

    This was one of the most anticipated releases for VR headsets for quite a while, following an early demo that came out alongside the Vive over two years ago. It’s a stealth exploration game in which you must explore an office space full of deadly robots.

    Drivable vehicles, a huge explorable environment, and some gnarly survival mechanics all punctuate this thoughtful, immersive, adventure game. The VR support has been a long time in the making, so this is good news indeed.
