Steam Next Fest: You can try out these VR games now

Steam Next Fest currently offers you a selection of 20 VR games. To find them, you need to set the filter on the left-hand side accordingly. Open the "Visual Style & Perspective" tab, scroll down a little and click on "VR". Once the filter is set, you will find a colorful mix of different genres.

Escape Simulator (Steam link), for example, sends you into a VR escape room in co-op with up to eight players. In Brazen Blaze, you can experience fast-paced 3v3 smack & shoot VR action in the style of Overwatch (Steam link). If you have a soft spot for beautiful landscapes in VR, don't miss the graphically stunning kayaking simulation Whitewater VR: Extreme Kayaking Adventure (Steam link).

In Z.O.N.A. Origin, things are much darker and more sinister. The mix of action, horror, and survival game with role-playing elements sends you into a post-apocalyptic game world around the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. (Steam link).


For fans of cozy games, BlackForge VR offers a relaxing way to escape the daily grind. Become a VR blacksmith and create your own medieval weapons (Steam link).
