For many people, virtual reality is escapism. It allows you to put on a headset and immediately teleport to a completely new world. Perhaps in your dreams this world is full of magic, amazing creatures and exciting locations. If this is so for you, then you have come to the right place. This is our list of the top 10 VR RPGs that you can play on Rift, Vive, PSVR and Windows VR right now.
We are still in the era of consumer virtual reality, which means we have not quite reached the point where you can spend years creating the perfect set in an RPG. Many of the games on this list are ports of non-VR games or they are made by small teams with a passion for VR. In any case, this is our choice, which we can definitely recommend to you.
And since we specifically compile an RPG list (which means role-playing games), we exclude things that are primarily shooters, adventure games, or even just combat games, such as Blade & Sorcery, if they do not place much emphasis on RPG elements. We also leave mobile games, because on mobile devices there are not so many great RPG VRs (except well, you should definitely play it on Go and Gear VR.)
So, VRcue presents you with its list.
We start with Chronos. The game provides a very solid RPG experience, although some of the implementations of VR lack a bit of a fixed camera and third-person perspective.
The tricky twist here is that every time you die, your character grows old. As you get older, your strength naturally decreases, but your wisdom increases, slowly changing the growth and abilities of your character. In addition, it is a very dark experience of the soul with a solid fight, focused on evasion and counterattack.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
When Skyrim VR was announced at E3, it was like a dream come true. The Elder Scrolls is one of my all-time favorite game franchises, and the idea of going around the fantasy world and killing dragons in VR was just an incredible suggestion. And, fortunately, this justifies the hype.
But the implementation of VR could use a little more work, as the flat menus and inconvenient interaction of NPCs leave much to be desired, but the scale and amount of content are second to none in VR. This is truly one of the best RPGs ever made, now in VR. If you play on a PC, then you can use mods!
Fallout 4 vr
Compared to Skyrim VR, Fallout 4 VR did not have a very smooth release. Despite this, the post-apocalyptic setting is great for a VR game. It will be difficult for you to find a franchise that meets the stylistic fulfillment of the wishes of science fiction fans, as does Fallout.
He exchanges the mystical lands and powers of Skyrim for a dark, decrepit wasteland full of possibilities. And building settlements in VR with motion controllers is actually a lot of fun.
Frolicking in dungeons with friends is great fun, especially when it’s VR, and you have certain class roles. Like the VR Dungeon Knight, which is also on this list, the Karnage Chronicles focuses heavily on cooperative fun. And the design of the environment makes you come back and return to this amazing universe.
The project is still in active development, but you can already experience a lot of great content, even if it is still in early access.
The Mage’s Tale
From inXile Entertainment, the actual creators of The Bard’s Tale and Wasteland come to The Mage’s Tale, which is a great single-player RPG. She confronts you with dangerous goblins, deadly traps and a surprisingly long campaign with 10+ hours of content.
The game goes on Rift, Vive and PSVR, and there are a lot of good RPGs in it with some of the best production values in the genre. This is not an open world, it is very linear, but filled with various interesting plot twists.
The second part of the top VRcue will be published a little later. Stay with us to keep up with the most interesting games in virtual reality.
