Virtual Reality mixed with horror just seems like a no brainer. Technology that totally immerses the player has the potential for some incredible scares. I, for one, am looking forward to what is on the horizon as these two worlds collide, and some of the upcoming titles I have already tried aim to please and petrify. Here are five titles coming your way in 2016 that will make you want to gear up and enter the VR world.
EDGE OF NOWWHERE
From Insomniac Games, EDGE OF NOWHERE is the story of an explorer in the Arctic mountains looking for a missing expedition. It’s part mystery and part “run for your fucking life”.
ADR1FT is set in that place where “no one can here you scream”. Here you are stranded, the last survivor of a destroyed space station trying to stay alive and find a way home.
This haunted house game revolves around the protagonist trying to find his family while battling an array of evil spirits. The regular version of this game comes out this year, but they still have not posted a date for the VR release. Their website states that they are currently testing on Oculus Rift DK2, so fingers crossed!
UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD
This one is all about being stuck in a horror theme park with roller coasters, guns and evil clowns. What more do you need?!
THE ASSEMBLY is a whacked-out psychological thriller set in the bowels of an underground research facility. The trailer makes it out to be the right degree of brain-gasm and total horror.
