Google announces three new Daydream VR games coming soon to Play Store


GDC (Game Developers Conference) is in full swing, so it's no surprise that Google announced a few new games for its Daydream VR headset. These new titles will be joining Google's gaming lineup in the coming months and will be published on the Play Store.

Virtual Rabbids seems to be the most interesting out of all three. The game is developed by a joint-venture between Ubisoft and the original creators of Rabbids. According to the developers, the game will make full use of the controller to show what the VR headset can really do.

The folks over at Spry Fox, winners of Standout Indie award back in 2016, are back with a new VR game called Beartopia. This is an entirely different title than the studio's awarded puzzle game called Alphabear. Beartopia is a co-op village game in which players must form friendships and build a prosperous society.



Lastly, Turbo Button announced Along Together, which is, ironically, a game about an imaginary friend. It will allow players to make use of the Daydream controller, while they overcome challenging 3D puzzles.

All three VR titles will be launched in the Google Play Store soon. However, if you're anxious to try out some VR games, then you'll be pleased to know that the following Daydream titles will be on sale for a week starting March 1: Need for Speed No Limits VR, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, as well as Gunjack 2 End of Shift.

Wish it required a gamepad and could be a full on platformer.

Most likely the game is design around the Daydream bundled motion controller.

That should be the case Gamepads are horrible for VR Motion controllers are far more immersive

Umm, what do you think the Daydream controller is? The Daydream controller has a clickable XY axis touch pad with 2 buttons, volume controls, a 3 axis accelerometer, 3 axis gyroscope, and a 3 axis magnetometer.
