The VR Drop: Slim May Pickings
As 2022’s spring season draws to a close there’s been a notable reduction in the amount of virtual reality (VR) titles hitting stores. Some big games have arrived such as Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall this week for Meta Quest 2, but all in all this coming week is no different. In fact, it’s the modding community that’s been filling in those gaps lately.
Shores of Loci – MikeTeevee
Coming to Early Access on SteamVR as well as Meta Quest’s App Lab, Shores of Loci is a casual, narrative-driven, single-player puzzle game. You’ll be transported to stunning environments where you have to solve elaborate challenges to help Giants and Villagers alike reclaim their lands and rebuild their cities.
World of Mechs – Studio 369
The big VR videogame gmw3 has been looking forward to after previewing it earlier in May, World of Mechs is a mechanised brawler with both single-player and multiplayer modes. The multiplayer is the core of the experience, pitting players in teams of 4 to fight across a variety of maps or go head-to-head in a deathmatch. With easy to pick up controls, players can quickly jump into 32 giant mechs, each with its own loadouts and upgrade options.
Manny Boxing VR – Appnori Inc.
Finally, the only other VR game so far confirmed for the final week of May is Appnori Inc’s Manny Boxing VR. A boxing title featuring world-renowned boxing star, Manny Pacquiao, there’s a selection of training modes including speed ball, dummy hitting practice and heavy bag training before fighting a selection of AI characters including Pacquiao himself.
