In this article, I share the list of the top 13 awesome upcoming VR games of 2023 and 2024 for Oculus Quest 2, PSVR, and PCVR, from the Assassin’s Creed franchise to Arizona Sunshine 2, Gostbuster, and more.

PlayStation VR2 (PSVR2)
1. Assassin’s Creed Nexus
So after more than three years of its rather casual announcement of, you know, Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, Ubisoft finally came out a month ago, and in addition to the pack of other ACS that’s going to be coming out soon, we’re finally seeing a resurfacing of this game with actual in-game footage. We now know that in Nexus, you actually play the role of Enzio, the protagonist in Italy; another one in addition in Greece; and the one in Boston named Connor. Take a look if you missed it. Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR is a semi-open-world game that’s going to be coming out on Meta Quest 2 and 3 Quest Pro.
Number two, guys, a quick mission over here, especially since it’s a big project, we’ve got number two, a primarily VR game from a few months ago, a totally brand new game by the same developers of The Walking Dead Saints and centers Tara is a single-player, story-driven RPG called Behemist in the making. Here’s a soul trailer with his cinematic developers released in the woods that is going to be releasing for PCs in the next generation of consoles by the end of the year 2023.
3. Aces of Thunder
Coming after almost two years of Weight Aces of Thunder, by the way, that’s one of the most talked-about games as of this month. I mean, first of all, this is an aerial dogfighting flight action game, and it’s now coming to the PlayStation VR2 early to mid-next year. I mean, the war just came through in addition to a new trailer, and if you’re wondering about the game we’re talking about, just know this: it’s actually from the famous developers of War Thunder, and it’s a spin-off of that game, promising the most realistic combat compared to even Ace Combat games. It’s a PlayStation VR 2 exclusive.
4. Arizona Sunshine 2
Speaking of Weights, uh, after like seven years of that, Arizona Sunshine is now coming back for the PCs and PS VR2 by the end of the year. This sequel is promised to get us back to the zombie apocalypse of the Christmas of this particular year we’re in, and the story picks up exactly where it left off in the original game. You get a dog companion now with the addition of a big, I mean, huge pool of both melee and ranged weapons to have fun with.
5. Hellsweeper VR
Moving on we have Hellsweeper VR. The reason it’s on the list today is because the game is now coming out in about two weeks, in which case you didn’t know this is a roguelike first-person combat simulator and is coming from the same developers behind Sirento. It’s another really bizarre game, but really awesome too. Hellsweeper 2 is actually sitting through pre-alpha, and there’s a demo for it. It’s going to become an Oculus in PC VR Quest for PlayStation VR2, and that’s all there is to it.
6. Stranger Things VR
Moving on, we have Strange Things VR. This is a psychological horror game here based upon the TV series, of course, and coming from the same developers of the Underworld game, where you experience the world of Strange Things from the never-before-seen perspective of a new character plotting revenge basically against the hive mind behind this whole thing. This game is going to be coming to Pro around fall, and later one is going to be coming to other VR headsets as well.
7. Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable
Coming up behind that, from the same Studio Hall that previously worked on Little Witch Academia VR, we’ve got over here Attack on Titan VR Unbreakable, which was announced last summer as a VR adaptation and is apparently releasing in the winter of this year for Meta Quest 2 Pro and also Meta Quest 3. It’s a single-player and co-op multiplayer hunting action game, kind of in the same style as Monster Hunter World a little bit.
8. Bulletstorm VR
Developers incubo went on and finally announced the development, I mean they did earlier in the year of a very old game, you probably know Bullet Storm, and now VR, they said the game is going to become a meta Quest VR head test for the PlayStation VR2, all due on December 14 this year. Now you’ll probably know this, but just in case Bullet Storm came through about 12 years ago and was one of the most innovative first-person shooters on the platform, the game is now being made in VR with improved textures, additional content, and probably the dopest trailer.
Coming from the same studio behind the VR sport game Racket and X we’ve got over here as something called Underdogs, this is a science fiction physics-based robot fighting game with Roblox components in VR, which if that doesn’t sound exciting to you, I don’t know what is anyway on the dog. It is expected to hit the quest store early next year or, in the best-case scenario, late 2023.
10. Arashi: Castle of Sin-Final Cut
almost critical Your arms were broken. It’s been almost two years since its initial release on PCS, and PSVR Arashi Castle of Sin has also had a bit of a new addition in the making since last year, going by Final Cut, which is basically the core game with gameplay refinements and a few upgrades including improved visuals, updated enemy and boss AI, better controls, and more quality of life features. Arashi: castle of Sin-Final Cut is now coming out in about a month. We hear about PS VR 2, Meta Quest 2, and even Steam VR.
11. Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord
Now, guys, Ghostbusters: Rise of the Ghost Lord is now coming around the fall of this year, and we just got a story trailer yesterday. We knew it was going to be coming off a meta-Quest and Quest Pro, and now, in addition to that, it’s going to be coming to PlayStation VR too. Rise of Ghost Lord follows the story of a new group of Ghostbusters who must defeat the ghosts. It also dates back to the original Ghostbusters movie.
12. Asgard’s Wrath 2
Probably one of the biggest announcements out of the Mythicus Showcase earlier this year, number 12, is Asgard’s Ref Two. It’s actually a sequel to an almost five-year-old action RPG and, honestly, one of the heavy hitters of its release year. Asgard’s Wrath 2 is promised to have a massive world beyond the scope of any other game on the MetaQuest platform, taking place mostly in Egypt and releasing in the final quarter of 2023 on the Quest headsets.
13. Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice
And last but not least, you see, during the Meta Quest’s gaming showcase early on in the year, we also came across a brand new VR game set in the world of Darkness Universe called Vampire the Masquerade Justice, which is described by the developers as an adventure RPG single player in which you play the role of a vampire who actually must decide both good and evil. Anyway, you’ll see this game finally coming out on November 2nd this year on PSVR2 and Quest headsets for the price of 30 bucks.
