    The Biggest VR Releases Of The Week 10/28/18

    Last week we had a massive new VR shooter hit Early Access in the form of War Dust, putting 64 players on the same map in two teams of 32 each. This week, there’s nothing quite that ambitious. Instead, we’ve got a free edition of one of VR’s most visually striking shooters, an Oculus Go port of Daydream’s best game, a PSVR tourism app, and a mesmerizing VR short about an ancient healer.

    These are your biggest VR releases for the week of October 28th, 2018. For all of October’s VR releases check out this massive list and look forward to November VR releases here.

    Seeking Dawn: Free to Play Edition, from Multiverse
    Price: Free, Platforms: Rift, Vive, Windows VR

    Seeking Dawn is a gorgeous VR game, but its gameplay never quite does enough to back up the extreme visual fidelity. We had plenty of issues with the game when it first launched earlier this year, but now there’s a new free version, complete with multiplayer support, that’s basically a wave-based survival mode. And it’s Halloween themed because why not!

    Read our full review of the paid game here.

    The Bond, from Axis Studios
    Price: Free, Platforms: Rift, Vive

    The Bond is a visually stunning, free, VR short about an ancient healer and her connection with all living things – good or evil. Far away, in an alien forest, a TiaMuati and her faithful beast seek out a sacred glade. Here she can connect with the web of life – and see the world through other’s eyes. But there’s an imbalance – a dark presence. As the forest’s guardian she must confront it… and you’re coming with her.

    Legends of Catalonia, from The Greyskull Company
    Price: Free, Platforms: PSVR

    VR tourism hasn’t really hit its stride yet and it’s typically rare on PSVR, but this app is really, really impressive. You can visit famous locales around Barcelona like never before in this world. From the Store page: “Enter an epic adventure, traveler. Catalonia awaits you and you must help the knight Sant Jordi to recover the secrets of his lost diary. Join an adventure in the hands of illustrious travel companions and overcome the challenges that await you in a world of dreams, legends and fantasy.”

    Eclipse: Edge of Light, from White Elk
    Price: $9.99, Platforms: Oculus Go, Samsung Gear VR, Daydream

    Review Synopsis:

    If you hadn’t guessed by now I was really rather fond of Eclipse. I even see it as a sort of spiritual successor to Ustwo Games’ excellent Land’s End on Gear VR, only more ambitious. White Elk took a lot of risks with the game’s design that pay off in spades, from the smart use of Daydream’s controller to giving players full control over their movement. The result is a memorable sci-fi adventure that kept me fully engaged from start to finish, and left me feeling like I’d really explored an alien world.

  • VR Film Homestay Wins BC Spotlight Audience Award The Vancouver Film Festival played host to an exhibition of immersive content.
  • GIVEAWAY: Win A Free Copy Of In Death On Steam For Rift, Vive, Or Windows VR
    GIVEAWAY: Win A Free Copy Of In Death On Steam For Rift, Vive, Or Windows VR

    Hopefully your aim is good because our latest giveaway is for a Steam key to grant access to the bow and arrow-focused archery roguelike, In Death! We’ve got 10 Steam copies ready to hand out, for free, no strings attached. All you have to do is enter into our giveaway right here or down in the widget below.

    Winners will be randomly selected. All of our keys are Steam keys, which means they will unlock the game with native support for either Rift, Vive, or Windows VR.

    For more on what we think of the game, here is an excerpt from our 8/10 review:

    In Death is a fantastic bow and arrow shooter that manages to stay fresh and challenging even after a dozen hours or more of gameplay. There isn’t much of a plot to speak of, but the procedurally generated level layouts and constantly evolving gallery of enemies and arrow types means the more you play and the farther you get, the more diverse and challenging the game becomes. As long as you don’t mind a hard fight that’s going to beat you down and kill you over and over, In Death is absolutely a surreal journey worth taking.

    Winners will be selected at approximately 4PM PT on Monday, November 5th, 2018. If you’d rather not click the link above, here is the embedded contest widget:
