PC gaming is littered with adult-themed content yet virtual reality (VR) hasn’t received the same attention. Of the few titles that are available, Succubus: Hellish Orgy VR is one of the better-known projects. Also looking to make a mark in this genre is the erotic VR RPG Iragon from Repulse. It has been in development for several years now with the studio planning an official launch in September.
Virtual reality games are great at simulating physical combat, with the sport of boxing very well catered to. The likes of Creed: Rise to Glory and Thrill of the Fight showcase the more traditional approach to the sport.

The competitive military shooter Alvo has been available for PlayStation for a couple of years now.

And where PlayStation owners are concerned, you can sign up now for the Alvo PSVR 2 beta test.

Virtual reality (VR) developer Funktronic Labs is known for its colourful, playful style of videogames. From Cosmic Trip and Starbear: Taxi through to Fuji, they all have soft edges and delightful exuberance, suitable for players of all ages.

A change in the way VR titles are categorised on Steam has been revealed. The VR game store listing will now state the required hardware under the ‘system requirements’ section, opposed to the store page sidebar.
