2. Panzer Dragoon: On PC and PS4 Voyage Record - vr Games of 2021

They navigate a twisted mansion like a wraith, devoid of pure souls. To solve puzzles and unlock the secrets concealed within its walls, players can use a range of spectral skills. The game is set inside the universe of World of Darkness. It is narrative-driven, despite its frightening elements, with a first-person viewpoint based on discovery and stealth. Its doors will open for the PC and PS4 in early 2021.

This is arriving in early 2021 for the PC.
5. Phasmophobicity - vr Games of 2021
The most recent gaming phenomenon that has dominated game charts. Just in time for spooktober, this Kinetic Games first-person virtual-reality game is not just a patience exercise, but friendship as well. Reach decrepit areas teeming with abnormal supernatural energy as a community of amateur paranormal investigators. The primary aim is to capture as much paranormal activity as possible without disturbing the lives of the crew. That implies interacting with the dead and putting cameras in strategic positions. It's still in its Early Access period, which means that once the game is fully released for the PC next year, there's still more content coming.
6. Sniper VR Elite - vr Games of 2021
If Rebellion's acclaimed Sniper game's third-person gameplay doesn't feel enough, then this version of Virtual Reality might do the trick. Players assume the role of a master marksman determined to overthrow a totalitarian dictatorship to the ground, just like the previous entries... by popping their heads in satisfying X-Ray killshots. It's pretty simple, but the fun comes from planning from its long list of expectations for the perfect execution. It's set to be published next year at some point.

It's part shooter, part arcade fun, which gives players the option of going gun-blazing or enjoying simple challenges of shooting.
11. Chronicles: The SoulKeeper: - vr Games of 2021

It is still in early stages, so what we are seeing is subject to change right now. Who knows what the endgame object is going to look like. It's slated for release in 2021.
12. Wingman project - vr Games of 2021
These days, a combat-flight action game is nothing new, but the forthcoming VR title of Sector D2 looks promising.

Each of these flying metallic monsters is fitted with their own futuristic weapons with a range of supersonic jet planes and more.

14. Sam & Max: It's Virtual This Time - vr Games of 2021
