Best upcoming VR games in 2020

The past couple of years have been incredible for VR enthusiasts.

Aside from the innovative headsets like Oculus Quest 2 and Valve Index, a lot of exciting VR games have been released as well, like Half-Life: Alyx, and many big studios are implementing support for VR, like Bethesda and Capcom for Fallout and Resident Evil series.

But that is just the beginning as loads of exciting VR titles will be released in the next few months. 

Here are some of the most anticipated game releases that every VR fan should add to their Wishlist.

Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond

In September 2019, an unexpected announcement was made during the Oculus Connect 6 event, which hinted towards the first-ever VR game coming from Respawn Entertainment, the developers of Apex Legends.

Their first-ever VR product will be Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, the first new Medal of Honor game since Warfighter from 2012.

The game takes us to the World War II era, and the players will be able to play as an Allied agent working for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).

Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond will incorporate historical elements and specific World War II items and weapons alongside the entire setting designed to experience WW2 from the VR perspective.  

In addition to the narrative-driven singleplayer campaign, you’ll be able to test yourself against your fellow soldiers in fast-paced multiplayer matches.

And if you love history, you'll be glad to hear that the game comes with award-winning short historical films created just for the game.

Medal of Honor: Above & Beyond is scheduled for release on 11th December 2020.

After the Fall

After the Fall will be a first-person shooter VR game coming from the Vertigo Games, a studio well known for their popular VR titles like Skyworld and Arizona Sunshine.

In After the Fall, it is all about choosing your favourite weapon and shoot down the deadly monsters.

The game is set in the ice-covered ruins of LA, 20 years after the apocalypse, caused by a mysterious drug that turned everyone into vicious monsters known as Snowbreeds.

After the Fall will have both single-player and multiplayer modes, filled with action and gore in which you must upgrade your weapons and gear from the items scattered across the frozen lands in order to improve your chances of survival.

You can complete the story campaign either solo or in co-op, but that's not the end, because endgame built from the ground up for VR awaits you, with a living world full of events, missions, and boss encounters. 

After the Fall is currently set to be released in 2020, but the exact date is not yet disclosed.

Low-Fi is one of the most anticipated VR titles that was only made possible thanks to the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, which raised over $100,000 for the production of the game.

The inspiration behind this enormous open-world sandbox comes from iconic cyberpunk films, including Robocop and Blade Runner.

In the future, everyone lives on "the platform" a ubiquitous virtual reality simulation, except for those who are too poor to afford it, and you are one of them. The name for those people is "Low-Fi".

You are a police officer transferred to a notorious, crime-ridden section of city-block 303.

The game is completely non-linear and you can do almost anything here, whether it be maintaining law and order, proceed with the storyline, or solving crime mysteries.

But there is another side of the coin that lets you take bribes, venture into the city's underworld, have a blast at the casinos, or even frame and blackmail innocent people. The choices are endless, but you will have to wait until the game arrives at the end of the year 2020.

Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife is one of the most anticipated horror VR titles coming out in early 2021, published and developed by Fast Travel Games.

Afterlife is a first-person VR horror exploration game set in the World of Darkness universe.

As a wraith inside the Barclay Mansion, you use your supernatural powers to unravel its secrets and hide from the sinister spectres.

What makes this game ever compelling is that it is a VR title, so expect to step into a world that incorporates the elements of renowned horror titles like Amnesia and Alien: Isolation. 

Aside from stealth and exploration, the game is massively driven by narrative, and you will get to explore the massive Barclay Mansion to gradually reveal its terrifying history and the reason behind your own death. 

As you progress, you will learn unique supernatural abilities that will be crucial in interacting with the environment.

There are different types of abilities through which you can manipulate the surrounding objects, hear the noises from long distances, and even walk through the walls like ghosts, which you are.

Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife will be available on Windows and PS4 upon launch with the support of a handful of VR headsets, including Oculus Rift, Valve Index, PS VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Quest.
