Virtual reality has already had a huge impact on video games. This is perhaps most apparent in those with a horror theme. In no other genre do we appreciate stellar graphics and characters as we do in horror games.
Playing a VR horror game is completely different from any other type of game. It’s a thrill seeker’s dream, fuelled by a mix of eerie settings and characters designed to evoke pure terror. Far from cushy games of bingo at pgbingo.com and its list of UK bingo sites, playing horror themed VR games is not for the faint-hearted. If you think that you can handle it, then here is a list of our top 4 recommendations of VR horror themed games set for release.
Resident Evil VII
You can’t call yourself a true horror fan unless you’ve taken a look at this famed, zombie-themed series. Resident Evil 7, or Resident Evil Biohazard, is set for release on 24th January 2017. It is a first person POV which can be played in PlayStation VR mode. The final film in the franchise is also due for release shortly after the game, on the 24th February 2017. Fans can expect serious scares from both, as only this series can deliver.
