Everything announced at the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase 2022

Ghostbusters VR

The Ghostbusters are coming to VR with Ghostbusters: VR on Meta Quest 2.

Expect to hunt Ghosts, put them in traps, and of course, avoid crossing the streams. Let’s be honest, you’re humming the theme tune now, right?

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners remains one of the Quest 2’s finest titles, and this sequel looks to up the ante in a few ways.

Players can expect more enemies, fewer resources, and something hunting you across New Orleans — but you will have a chainsaw on your side.

Release date: 2022

Resident Evil 4: Mercenaries

Expect a longer campaign, more brain teasers, and an improved jetpack to move around the world. It’s also quite the looker.

Espire 2

If you’re a fan of spy movies, Espire 1: VR Operative was a fantastic experience that put you in the shadows just like a sneaky operative – and it’s getting a sequel.

Not only can fans expect a longer campaign, but there’s an entirely separate co-op option, too, that remixes levels from the first game and bridges the gap between them.

Release date: 2022

Moss: Book II

If you’ve ever played SimCity or enjoyed handmade miniature cities, Cities VR offers a similar experience in VR on Quest 2.

Bonelab

The follow-up to Boneworks, Bonelab is built for Quest 2 and PC VR and sees players escaping capture and trying to escape using any tactic they can think of. Grab items, run, fight, climb, and more.
