Is there a Metro VR game?

The virtual reality version of Metro 2033 is called Metro Awakening VR and Vertigo Games are developing it.

Is Metro Awakening VR only?

Metro Awakening will be a dedicated VR game. It’ll only support VR headsets. Vertigo Games has confirmed that Meta Quest 3, Quest 2 and Quest Pro will all support Metro Awakening. And so will PlayStation VR 2 (PSVR 2) and PCVR headsets on Steam. Ensuring no VR owners will miss out (mostly).

Will Metro Awakening be on PC?

It’ll be on PC only so far that it’ll support PCVR-compatible headsets like Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Meta Quest. An actual flatscreen, PC monitor version hasn’t been mentioned and likely isn’t happening. That’s mainly due to Metro Awakening being built from the ground up for VR mechanics and gameplay.
