Raw Data is a compelling VR game that allows you to explore a fantasy world where you play as a member of the Syndik8 and fight off the evil enemeies of Eden Corp. The game will allow you to play solo or team up with friends through their cross-platform online co-op missions and become a hero. There is a PvP mode which allows you to combat other players as well. Make sure to give this a go during the weekend.
Badfly Interactive has released the full version Dead Effect 2 VR which is the newest addition to the acclaimed Dead Effect franchise. This action sci-fi shooter will push the boundaries of first-person shooters to new levels with slick graphics, rich narrative and RPG elements.
You can play single-player missions at your own pace or engage your friends in the cooperative or PvP multiplayer mode. Users must train and develop your character to defeat the enemies as you go on into the story. You’ll be able to collect and upgrade countless weapons, gear and body implants and take control of the monster-infested ships. You’ll find elements from the old game which are incorporated into the world of VR. Make sure to give Dead Effect 2 VR a try this weekend.
AFFECTED: The Manor was originally designed for the Oculus dev kit as a showcase attraction. Developed by Fallen Planet Studios, the VR experience takes you through three nightmares where you must make it to the end in one piece. “There are no puzzles to solve, no coins to collect, just three nightmares,” according to the developers.
AFFECTED: The Manor is rather focused on immersive entertainment. They use horror as a vehicle for the VR experience itself. The game doesn’t focus on gore or grotesque scenes. But that doesn’t mean you won’t be facing some scary moments. Make sure to give this newly ported game on the HTC Vive.
