Google announces a myriad of Daydream VR “experiences”, including 30 games


On October 4th, during its big 2016 unveiling event, Google took the wraps off of its first proprietary, and may we add oddly fashionable, VR headset, dubbed the Daydream View. Bundled with each Pixel phone pre-order, or priced separately at $79, this comfy-looking VR viewer + remote controller combo will also be backed by an impressive catalog of services and software at launch to nicely kick things off for early adopters. Google has announced a myriad of diverse VR experiences that will be brought to the Daydream platform in partnership with many big names, including HBO, Hulu, Netfilx, CNN, USA Today, among many others, so there's definitely a lot to look forward to (if you own a Daydream-ready device, that is).

And yes, there are many games coming out too. In fact, apart from all the video streaming services and educational and news apps, 30 games will also launch alongside Google's Daydream View. They include current Android games, such as the excellent puzzler Mekorama and the no-introduction-needed Need for Speed: No Limits, remade for VR, as well as many Daydream-exclusive titles, such as Wonderglade, Daydream Blue, and J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts.
