The hit phenomenon is finally making its way to VR. Among Us, the famous whodunit social deduction game, was recently shown off during Meta's 2022 Games Showcase and will be hitting the ecosystem soon. Not too much is known about how the game will operate in VR, but judging by the brief trailer, it looks like things will play out the same way as the original version, with players having to complete various jobs before finding out who is the imposter amongst them. 

Release date: November 10, 2022

Colossal Cave

Originally released in 1976 as a text-based adventure game, Colossal Cave comes from Cygnus Entertainment, which was founded by legendary developers Ken and Roberta Williams, the latter of whom created the video game King's Quest when she worked at Sierra On-Line, a company she founded alongside Ken. This VR remake will be a full 3D reimagining of the game and force players to move through a large cave while solving puzzles along the way. 

Release date: Fall 2022

What the Bat?

What the Bat?

The developers of slapstick golf-parody game What the Golf? have brought a similar absurd charm to its first VR title. It seems to have a similar vibe to Vacation Simulator mixed with WarioWare's manic, random energy — only with purposefully worse controls. You have to complete various mini-game tasks with realistic physics, only your hands are tiny bats that aren't exactly built for dextrous jobs.

Release date: TBD 

Gambit!

Gambit! 

Gambit was first teased as a PC VR title two years ago but has now resurfaced as a Quest 2 title with an actual release date, including crazy masked characters, foul language, and lots and lots of shooting.

In many ways, it seems to channel Payday’s energy while being a game properly built for the VR era. Throughout the 20+ hour campaign, you’ll join friends through a three-chapter-long story that includes robbing trains, grand adventures, gun fights, and the single goal of ‘get rich or die trying.’ Sounds like a blast.

Release date: TBD 

Next Player Please

Next Player Please 

Next Player Please sees players sitting around a physical table, passing the headset to one another to complete minigames with just their hands. The trick here — at least based on the trailer — is that the VR headset doesn’t have a strap and players don’t use controllers.

Those two key points make it easy to pass the headset along to others quickly, as what appear to be Wario Ware-style minigames will likely be faster-paced than in other VR titles. 

Release date: TBD

Ghostbusters VR

This was perhaps the single biggest announcement during the 2022 Meta Games Showcase. Ghostbusters VR takes the iconic film franchise and puts it into the world of virtual reality. The game tasks players with running a new Ghostbusters HQ in San Francisco, all while taking down and capturing various ghosts in the process. 

Ghostbusters VR supports up to four-player co-op, and seems to be sticking pretty close to the spirit of the original films. However, we don't know much else about the game at this time. 

Release date: TBD

Ultimechs

The combination of mechs and sports has been done before in virtual reality, but Resolution Games is looking to perfect the crossover in Ultimechs. With this title, 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 

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom

Peaky Blinders: The King's Ransom is inspired by the award-winning Netflix gangster drama starring Cillian Murphy as gang leader Tommy Shelby. The VR experience will be produced by digital entertainment studio Maze Theory, which previously made video games based on the Doctor Who franchise.

Described as "an authentic, embodied experience set in an atmospheric 1920s England," this 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 Murphy and Paul Anderson, and allow players to enter the world of the hit show.

Release date: TBD 

Behemoth

The latest game from Skydance Interactive, Behemoth was only recently revealed, but looks to thrust players into a brand new world. The teaser for the game showed only a desolate area filled with snow, as well as what appeared to be a large, clawed hand buried underneath the drifting snow. We'll likely know more about this game next year, since it isn't slated to launch until late 2023. 

Release date: Late 2023 

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas VR

During Facebook Connect 2021, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that a virtual reality game based on the extremely popular Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be released. 

While not too much is known about the title, we do know that Video Games Deluxe, the same studio behind the LA Noire: The VR Case Files port, will be working on it, with a release date set for sometime in 2022.

Release date: TBD 

Assassin's Creed VR

We know nearly nothing about the Assassin's Creed VR game. Co-developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, Ubisoft Mumbai, and Ubisoft Reflections, this title will likely continue the ongoing lore that Ubisoft has established with Assassin's Creed, although it's unknown what aspect of Assassin's Creed players will get to experience.

Release date: TBA

Which VR game are you looking forward to playing?

Though releases have slowed down with the pandemic, there are still several exciting games for the Oculus Quest 2 in our future, like Ghostbusters VR and NFL Pro Era, just to name a few. While other titles such as the popular Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Assassin's Creed don't have concrete release dates yet, we'll be sure to update this post when they do.

Even if the game you're waiting on doesn't have a set release date yet, there are still many other great Oculus Quest 2 games to check out. The recently-released Cities: VR, for example, is an MMO that is already seeing lots of success.
