Meta has celebrated this afternoon the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, a presentation in which, as you can deduce from its name, it has announced a…some of the new games coming to Oculus, Meta’s virtual reality platform. And, although the use of virtual reality technology is still very minority, as new and interesting titles arrive, it is likely that more users will decide to take the leap.
At Meta they are very aware of this and, what is even more important for the company, this it can be the main way to reach future new users to your metaverse project. Thus, it is more than understandable that although this year it has canceled its developer conference, because it does not yet have the project completely defined, it has held the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, with the announcement of quite a few games that will arrive on its platform.
So, let’s see what announcements have been produced today at the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase:
For many, the most powerful and surprising announcement of this Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, to the point that Mark Zuckerberg himself has made an appearance for the launch of this new title, in which we will have to put on all the equipment of a ghostbuster to face all kinds of paranormal creatures. Allows group play of up to four people.
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution
The second chapter of The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, a title that saw the light two years ago. We will return to New Orleans to face a legion of zombies that, unfortunately, will not be one more festive element of Mardi Gras. Again, as we saw in the previous installment, our decisions will change the course of history.
If you enjoyed at the time with BONEWORKS, from Stress Level Zero, then you are the target audience of BONELAB, the new creation of this studio, in which as soon as we escape from our own execution, we will find a strange underground laboratory that will allow us to advance, while we investigate about our own history.
NFL PRO ERA
Of course, some sports title could not be missing among the announcements of this Meta Quest Gaming Showcase. With this manager managing an American football team a few months before the start of the season, and we will have to use ourselves thoroughly to try to get, as you may have already imagined, to the Super Bowl.
Among Us VR
Little can be said, compared to imagining the experience of playing Among Us with your friends in virtual reality. This is probably one of the biggest temptations, in my case, to make the leap to this technology, and one of my favorite announcements of this Meta Quest Gaming Showcase.
Red Matter 2
Again we find a continuation announced in this Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, in this case the expected continuation of Red Matter, which left us quite intrigued with the end of its first installment. In this release we will pick up the story right at the point where it left off in its predecessor.
And there are no two without three, so we have also come across the continuation of Espire 1: VR Operative. And as in its predecessor, we will once again find ourselves in charge of a dangerous but important mission, to find a dangerous supersonic and undetectable missile that poses a global threat.
Moss: Book II
We will once again take control of Quill, the protagonist hero of Moss, who also picks up the narrative thread of his predecessor, and now entrusts us with the mission of ending the government of the Arcana to free the population and save the world from the great ruin.
Grand Amnis has, under its picturesque and busy streets, a vast labyrinth of ruins, unknown to most of the inhabitants of the surface. It will not be your case, because you will have to enter that underground kingdom to reveal all the secrets it hides.
Another of the titles that I have called attention, and is that we find a version, adapted to the context of virtual reality, Cities: Skylines, a simulator construction and management of cities with which we may from vacant lots and build from small towns to large cities.
Beat Saber – Electronic Mixtape
New content for the popular Beat Saber, which makes us a top DJ. With this extension we will get songs from the successful artists deadmau5, Marshmello, Pendulum and more.
Resident Evil 4 – The Mercenaries
The unlockable minigame at the end of the Resident Evil 4 story mode finally arrives in the VR version of the game, as we have been told in this Meta Quest Gaming Showcase. This move was something highly anticipated by his players for a long time.
As you can see, it has been a very complete and varied presentation. If you want to see the entire Meta Quest Gaming Showcase 2022 event, below is the video of it.
