As Vecna, you have telekinetic powers to fight enemies and enter characters' dreams and memories. The game also deals with Henry Creel's transformation into Vecna and his influence on the events of the previous seasons.
There will also be a Mixed Reality mode. In this mode, portals to Upside Down will open in your physical environment and you will have to repel invading attackers.
After delays, Netflix VR game finally launches
Stranger Things VR was originally announced on July 2022, but was not released as planned and was finally delayed indefinitely in November 2023. Developer Tender Claws has proven in the past that it understands the strengths of the medium and can create surreal VR worlds.
The studio has released Virtual Virtual Reality 1 & 2 and the playable interactive Dalí painting The Under Presents. Incidentally, Stranger Things VR is not the Netflix series' first foray into VR. In 2017, it released a free virtual reality experience for Playstation VR that took you to three locations featured in the series.
