5 Amazing Games for HTC Vive
Published Wed, Mar 28, 2018
The HTC Vive is a premium virtual reality headset. It’s an amazing, immersive piece of technology bringing astounding experiences to ardent game lovers. HTC Vive games showcase some of the best, visual-rich, and breathtaking VR gaming experience.
This VR headset utilizes room-scale tracking system, making it possible for the user to glide in 3D space using handheld controllers that are motion-tracked to relate with the environment – almost totally bridging the divide between virtual and real.
Just remember, if you’re planning to buy something soon, HTC just announced the Vive Pro is coming out this year which is supposed to be fully cordless from the computer unlike the HTC Vive. Both will require a computer with a top-of-the-line Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).
Superhot VR like the original has the same mission which is to work through white rooms tearing enemies into pieces with well-articulated movements. With the efficient tracking system inbuilt in Vive, it’s pretty easy making seamless, accurate movements with little effort.
Superhot VR turns an already creative and exhilarating game in an earlier version into a remarkable experience on the Vive. An inbuilt stop-time device translates movement to the player’s hands via the Vive controllers.
Indeed Superhot VR proves just how immersive VR can get and pumps some serious adrenaline into your system. This alone makes it one of the best experience readily available on Vive presently.
When you eventually decide to play this game (and you should soon), you’ll find out that everything happens in slow motion, picking up speed as you move. You’ll enjoy no doubt enjoy the pumped-up action.
If you’ve ever imagined what it would feel like to be all alone, in the middle of nowhere, trapped in space, Adr1ft provides the perfect platform and chance to find out.
You wake up and discover you’re completely alone in the vast void called space. Remains of your ruined space station float in outer space as if to remind you how you got there in the first place, plus the horrible experience that followed. Although, none of that makes any sense to you now because you’ve completely lost your memory. As if that’s not enough, your oxygen suit is failing fast, signifying death by suffocation in the midst of a vast array of anonymous stars.
During the entire, four-hour engulfing experience, you’ll keep staring at the environments in a bid to gradually save yourself. Adr1ft is overwhelmingly impressive due to its amazing visuals – a must-play for its mesmerizing appeal.
Rez Infinite, which is a redo of Rez (a 2001 cult classic), is an excellent adaptation making you assume Rez was a brainchild of VR. Nothing much has changed; Rez Infinite remains the on-rails shooter that passes game lovers through computer networks full of hazards. But in VR mode, all the multifaceted chaos and enemies you must shut down come alive.
Integrate the ‘fast and furious’ gameplay with its soothing soundtrack, and it’s not difficult to see why Rez Infinite is so engulfing on the HTC Vive. Rez is an old time classic but Rez Infinite in VR gives you a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the iconic game in a way no other platform lets you.
Fallout 4 VR
When it comes to role-playing, Fallout 4 is among the most prominent, fusing an enhanced combat system with legendary world-building and quest design.
Fallout 4 VR immerses you into the game to realize your vault-dwelling wishes in virtual reality all through the whole gaming experience. Because of its slower speed game lovers can play on for longer periods without losing steam.

Playing as an undercover agent from the underground, your assignment is to unravel and destroy Eden corporation’s operation from inside, soaking in as much information as possible.
You will feel powerful as you’re put in charge of a wide array of sophisticated weapon. Although this is a very complicated game, it rewards veteran players able to dexterously handle the arsenal of weapons at their disposal.
You can either go solo or play with a friend as you unravel the mystery behind Eden.
