So you just bought the new, all-powerful Meta Quest 3. The Quest Store has a huge amount of compatible videogames and apps available but really, you want to test Quest 3’s capabilities. And that means unlocking its mixed reality (MR) potential. But which titles support the full-colour passthrough and which are even worth playing? So here are the best mixed reality games currently available for Quest 3.
Meta Quest 3 officially launches tomorrow and with it a new era of mixed reality (MR) gaming. Some developers are upgrading current projects with better graphics, whilst others are adding MR components. One of the latest studios to do so is Kluge Interactive, teasing mixed reality support for its popular rhythm-action game Synth Riders.
Any discussion about virtual reality (VR) rhythm-action games tends to involve Beat Saber. However, before everyone was furiously swinging lightsabers around another title was aiming for the genre crown, Synth Riders. The work of Kluge Interactive, Synth Riders was released 5 years ago this week, offering up a slice of retro synthwave tunes. Standing the test of time to become a fan favourite, XR Source looks back on the last half-decade of Synth Riders‘ rhythm-action gaming.
If you’re new to virtual reality one of the best genres to start with is rhythm action. The games keep your feet (mostly) planted so there are no locomotion issues, just lots of energetic arm waving. And for VR veterans, these games can offer an unrelenting and compelling challenge. Here is XR Source’s selection of the best VR rhythm action games.
Virtual reality (VR) gaming isn’t about plonking yourself on a sofa and lazily playing through an open-world adventure. VR wants you to get involved, physically pick up stuff and really become engrained in the experience. Because of this aspect, VR can be energetic and healthy, making it great for fitness at home. If you’re looking for a good home workout, here are the best VR fitness games to try.
