This week, we released a bunch of titles and updates across the Quest and Rift Platforms. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:

Cities: VR
For more than 30 years, the city builder genre has kept aspiring urban planners (and maybe a few professionals) up late laying roads, placing hospitals and schools, creating the cities of their dreams. Now Cities: VR is set to bring the streets to life like never before. Fans of Paradox’s Cities: Skylines will feel right at home here, as Cities: VR manages to capture the essence of that experience on Quest 2. It’s not a one-to-one port, but Fast Travel Games is taking you “through the screen” so-to-speak, giving you a newfound appreciation (unique to VR) of the scale and scenery of the cities you’re designing.

Perfect For: Fans of Spacefolk City, Wander, and A Township Tale
Developer: Fast Travel Games
Available On: Quest 2

Blaston: Reloaded
It’s time to get down to brass tacks, because the Blaston Reloaded Update is finally here! Version 1.15 brings the long awaited first batch of weapon attachments to the game. The first batch includes three attachments for the following ten weapons: Raptor, Nova, Wildcat, Hammer, Viper, Lance, Hammer Nade, Frostbyte, Hurricane and Luma. There’s also a new seasonal mode. Who’s the best dodger and marksman? Settle the score with a Street Brawl! Duelists play in long distance duels using The Cyber Bow and a modified Nova to take each other down.

Perfect For: Fans of Echo VR, Swarm, and Hyper Dash
Developer: Resolution Games
Available On: Quest Platform

Contractors - Hazard Update
The Contractors Hazard Update is finally here, and the highlight is the new Zombie Survival Mode. A devastating outbreak is turning people into flesh eating zombies! A special task force is deployed to contain the situation. Team up with your friends with the latest Meta multiplayer integration, survive waves of zombies, upgrade your perks and gear, and challenge the global leaderboard. Zombie survival mode is still in its early stage, but will continue improving with more features and more maps! The Hazard Update also features a new recoil system, following criticism from the community for the last version. The new recoil system is remade with a more realistic recoil pattern, and removes the randomness factor.

Perfect For: Fans of Onward, Gun Club VR, and Phantom: Covert Ops
Developer: Caveman Game Studio
Available On: Quest Platform

Zombieland: Headshot Fever - Arcade Mode
Celebrate a whole year of zombie-slaying, brain-popping, TP-spending, PB-beating Headshot Fever action! Zombieland: Headshot Fever is the fastest, most accurate VR lightgun game available, and the new Arcade Mode provides a new experience for veterans and new players alike. Blast your way through a sequence of randomised levels, shooting new, hidden TP to gain currency. Spend that in the between-level store to get guns, brand new perks (including the Big Head perk!), extra med kits, and other bonuses. Each run is a new experience, requiring a different strategy! Replay value just went through the roof!
