Steam Sale 2024: These are the best deals

Ghosts of Tabor

Ghosts of Tabor is a realistic VR extraction shooter inspired by games like Escape from Tarkov. You explore vast post-apocalyptic maps, collect loot and fight against other players and AI opponents while trying to escape with your equipment. The game offers a bunker as a base for equipping and trading as well as a crafting system. In our hands-on test, Ghosts of Tabor turned out to be one of the best VR shooters I've played so far, with great controls and solid sound design.

Assetto Corsa

Assetto Corsa is a realistic racing game with an authentic driving experience that is particularly effective with force feedback steering wheels. It offers an extensive vehicle fleet with many licensed vehicles as well as numerous tracks and track variations. Although it is more of a racing game than a pure simulation, both experts and beginners will find many options to set the desired level of realism. With its motivating gameplay and vivid, immersive presentation, Assetto Corsa draws racing game fans into the virtual driver's seat time and time again.

Half-Life: Alyx

After a wait of around 13 years, Valve has finally delivered a new entry in the popular Half-Life series with Half-Life: Alyx, this time exclusively for VR. The first-person shooter is a prequel to Half-Life 2 and takes place between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2. You take on the role of Alyx Vance and fight against the Combine alien race. Half-Life: Alyx is one of the best VR games of all time and should not be missing from any VR library.



Pavlov is one of the most popular multiplayer shooters for virtual reality, often referred to as the “Counter-Strike of VR”, offering various game modes, custom servers, bots, matchmaking, and voice chat. With extensive modding support, you can add new maps and game modes created by the community.


Contractors Showdown

Contractors: Showdown is a battle royale shooter for VR headsets that features realistic weapons and graphics. The game combines elements of PUBG and Call of Duty Warzone 2 and allows you to parachute onto a large map, collect equipment and fight against other teams. You can find a more detailed description of the game in my hands-on test of Contractors Showdown.

Arizona Sunshine 2

The VR zombie shooter Arizona Sunshine 2 offers a co-op mode for the entire campaign as well as a horde mode for up to four players with cross-play support. As a frustrated survivor of a zombie apocalypse, you come across a loyal companion searching for humans, who combs the Arizona desert with you and supports you against the numerous “Freddys”.

Elite Dangerous

Elite Dangerous is a massive space simulation in which you can explore a giant galaxy with around 400 billion star systems. As the pilot of a small spaceship, you earn money for larger ships through trading, smuggling, or bounty hunts and can get involved in the power struggles of various factions. The game offers an impressive immersive experience in VR, especially for exploring and experiencing the endless expanses of space. With the Odyssey expansion, you can also explore planets and complete missions on the ground, choosing between diplomatic and violent approaches.



Riven is the direct successor to the classic Myst and continues its tradition of atmospheric adventure games. You explore a fascinating world full of complex puzzles and atmospheric graphics. The story revolves around the rescue of Atrus' wife Catherine and the capture of the villain Gehn, immersing you in the culture and history of the D'ni civilization.
