This may seem like a teleportation movement in the base at times.

So, the bursting demonic skulls and shooting stuff into a virtual reality hell in Doom VFR is really something that will always bound to keep you on the edge of your seat. Though you are certainly outnumbered by the massive number of your enemies but you will never out of choice for a gun from your arsenal that will not satisfy you by blowing your demonic opponents to bits.

It doesn't take for a genius to know that in a first-person shooter game, you always got to keep moving as it is the key-part of your survival. Doom VFR is no different in this case as well. Plus, if you are using your trusty PS VR Aim controller, the accuracy of your aim to kill will give you some great demon-slaying satisfaction. Oh, there are five unique weapon mods to blow up those fiends back to the depth of Hell they came from.

Doom VFR is already out compatible with PlayStation VR and HTC Vive headsets for players to enjoy worldwide. While some might think that the game probably is just a VR version of the 2016's title it is actually much more than that. This one is a carefully crafted version to outfit the strength and weaknesses of VR and it's really worth your interest.

Square Enix Brings Manga To VR

You might know the developer studio Square Enix for popular video games like Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series but they sure are more than that. They can do a lot more than give you the best role-playing game experiences and they intend to do just that next. For some time now, they have been working with virtual reality and during New York Comic-Con, they have announced their upcoming project.

They are working on "Project Hikari", a completely new project to introduce some popular manga titles into the world of virtual reality and let the fans experience of their interactive adventure. This brand-new venture to bring manga to life through blending stills and animating scenes will thrive to give the cinematic experience to the user which will be completely different than any video game out there.

Apparently, Project Hikari is using the Unreal Engine for their purpose and has selected the title "Tales of Weddings Rings" for adaptation. This fantasy romantic comedy manga story is the creation of artist Maybe. The story revolves around a young man falling in love with a girl and discovers that she is moving to a world, where she is a princess. Regardless, the protagonist follows her and then the fun-part begins.

They way Square Enix has worked on the project, it feels like you are looking at a real-time manga world where everything is moving and changing pace in front of your own eyes. From the drawing styles to the sound effects, everything is drawn in manga-style. Even though the demo they displayed was very brief and was only a single chapter of the tale but it was enough to speculate the full-potential the whole project holds.

Project Hikari might give you the vibe of an anime movie and not what you expect from a regular manga, but the studio official ensured that in the final output, we will be given enough options to enjoy it as we see fit. So, you can re-visit the previous chapter or pause at your will.

New chapters of this VR series will be released in an episodic manner but it is yet to reveal that how much each episode will cost approximately. By the looks of it, Square Enix can successfully venture out other manga or popular comic-book series with Project Hikari in the future. A definitive release date for Project Hikari is still not announced but it will come out sometime in 2018 for sure.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Virtual reality is becoming a trend these days and it is also impacting the video game industry. Many studios who realize the potential of riding this tide are releasing VR versions of their popular titles now to give their fans an all-new 3D experience and Bethesda Softworks decides to be wise like that. So, what they did is that they have taken projects of pre-existing games like Doom, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to produce VR versions for them.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Aside from the superior graphics excellence of modern time, Doom actually hasn't evolved from its core concept of shooting massive hordes of demons from Mars, beside the improved visuals have amplified the intensity of the game even more. We are not saying that's a bad thing but how about getting a bit more up close and personal with the minions of Hell? That wouldn't be so bad and Bethesda already gave us a preview of how it would look like at E3 2017 Showcase. We agree that Doom VFR will blow first person shooter loving gamers mind if not the brains.

Fallout 4
Fallout 4 is perhaps the most successful title of the entire Fallout series and probably that is why Bethesda has chosen the title for a VR treatment. As you struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, the virtual reality makes the aspects of the game pretty real to you. The entire game is re-imagined and you will notice that in combat and crafting. It's not just a tour of the Wasteland but the complete in-game world of the original game and t hat includes hundreds of locations. Even if you have played Fallout 4 before, this is a chance to experience the game once more with a new perspective.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The entire open world of action role-playing game Skyrim along with three of its official DLC; Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire are what you are getting in Skyrim VR. The scale and depth of this epic fantasy is re-imagined as you fight to save the world from the menace of the fabled dragon Alduin the World-Eater. Fighting dragons and exploring mountains will be more lifelike now than it was when you played Skyrim previously. Be sure to choose your own way to roam this open world as you play.

What we learn about the release dates for these VR projects are that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will see release for PlayStation VR on November 17 and then on HTC Vive at some point in 2018. Doom VFR will come out next on December 1 for PlayStation VR and Vive. Fallout 4 VR will be released on PC for the HTC Vive and the release date is December 12. So, we can be pretty thankful to Bethesda Softworks for bringing us all these virtual reality games throughout the year and expect them to create some original VR games as well.

The Walking Dead VR Game In Works

One thing that the fans of The Walking Dead will admit for sure, which is the franchise created by writer Robert Kirkman is about to conquer all. First it has proven to be a successful monthly ongoing series from Image Comics, then the live-action TV series on AMC created history on cable television and afterwards, a series of hit-games on various platforms. Now, what we are about to get next is virtual reality treatment and if everything goes according to plan, then there will be a series of games under that project.

Walking Dead VR Game In Development

For the past few years, Hollywood has made an unwritten tradition of getting Virtual Reality tie-ins for popular media. Since The Walking Dead is a pretty successful name worldwide, it was about time that it gets a VR treatment too. Recently at VRTL Summit, Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman and executive producer David Alpert has revealed that Skybound Entertainment is now in a partnership with Skydance Interactive to develop a series of virtual reality games based on Kirkman's source material.

Later, they have also confirmed this in a Tweet from the official Twitter handle of The Walking Dead.

The multi-year deal among the companies will be responsible for original video games that will have a very different setting and characters from the TV show or the super-hit games from Telltale Games. Skybound's President of Interactive Dan Murray explains, As the world of The Walking Dead is all about moral choices and survival decisions, people love to read that in comics, watch in the show and play in the games. So, what better way there is to experience all that in the environment?

Skydance Interactive is already working on an upcoming video game Archangel, featuring first-person virtual reality experience and was also involved in Netflix series Grace and Frankie. Although, the official announcement for the partnership is now announced, none of them have hinted of a possible release date yet.
