VR upload Upload E3 2021 is back at E3 with its third annual show, VR upload Upload, with the most creative and engaging games to bring to virtual reality. As this environment matures from year to year, it remains a platform that encourages developers to innovate. While not all of the games featured are new announcements, here we list five of the most anticipated games in the showcase that you can dive into soon.
Song in the smoke
First announced for PSVR earlier this year, Song in the Smoke is a spin-off for developer 17-Bit, a virtual reality survival game and more cartoonish indie games like Skulls of the Shogun and Galak-Z. In a recently released developer blog post, Jake Kazdal, CEO of the game studio, explains how virtual reality made him want to create not just a game, but a fully living and breathing world. The game is coming to PSVR on Oculus Rift and Quest this summer.
VR is home to a lot of great rhythm games, but Unplugged might be the coolest of them all. This is a game about playing an air guitar. With hand-tracking technology in Quest and other supported PC VR devices, you can truly feel like you’re playing a guitar using just your hands. In fact, the new trailer shows you can play The Offspring’s “The Kids Aren’t Alright.” The game will be released this fall.
Nerf Ultimate Championship
Who remembers playing Nerf? The teaser trailer may not give much, but it looks classy. Nerf weapons look great and the game is handcrafted by Emmy award-winning VR studio Secret Location. The game exclusive to Oculus is coming in 2022.
Sushi Ben VR
This stylish looking game is about trying to save your favorite sushi bar from bankruptcy. But your job is to persuade other people to eat there instead of serving sushi. So much more narrative focus has been brought to life with some vibrant manga-style comic panels. The game is coming in 2022.
A Township Story
Coming to Oculus Quest on July 15, A Township Tale is an open-world RPG designed specifically for VR, a great acknowledgment that you and everyone else have no legs. In an immersive fantasy world, you can create a new identity as a blacksmith, coin, lumberjack, warrior or archer.
