The Exorcist VR and Blair Witch
As the nights draw in and the moon shines that little bit brighter in the sky, Oculus has put together a selection of great horror content available on the Quest and Quest 2, for the ultimate immersive Halloween experience this year.
The Oculus Quest 2 VR headset allows you to both trick and treat yourself with different games and adventures that bring all the fun, fear and frights that come with Halloween – with none of the face paint or fancy dress required.
Below is a list of some of the best horror experiences available on Quest and Quest 2…
Blair Witch Project
The first game on the list is also the newest, launching just in time for Halloween 2020. A port of the PS4 and Xbox One games of the same name, the Blair Witch Project drops players into the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, where supernatural adventures await.
You play as former police officer Ellis, who joins the search for a missing boy alongside his trusty K-9 sidekick Bullet. But just because you’re not alone, don’t think this is going to be any less terrifying, as the spirit of the Blair Witch stalks you at every turn.
If it all gets too much, remember that you can actually pet your dog.
VR meets the zombie apocalypse! Arizona Sunshine is the original zombie shooter rebuilt entirely for Oculus Quest.
Powered by 360° gameplay freedom, the untethered Arizona Sunshine experience immerses you and up to three fellow survivors in a world overrun by zombies. Armed with little more than your motion-controlled weapons and the scarce ammo and consumables you find along the way, you need to navigate hordes of zombies in your desperate search for survivors.
Face Your Fears 2
Are you prepared to Face Your Fears and step into Harvest House?
Learn the tragic history of the Harvest Family as you explore their long-abandoned home. Immerse yourself in two spine-tingling scenarios that unravel a tale of terror across the ages. In the first, your sister is missing and all roads lead to the old Harvest Estate. Next, take on the role of a paranormal investigator and come face to face with the evil that dwells there.
Can you escape the same fate that befell other interlopers in these blighted halls, or will you forever remain buried in Harvest House?
In cult VR classic Dreadhalls, players are trapped deep inside a massive dungeon – and we mean massive. Explore it, survive it, and find a way to escape. Your only weapons will be stealth, your own courage, and a faint light that really only makes things creepier.
