Ever since Facebook became Meta, we all know the idea was to focus on the concept of the metaverse. While it may take some time for the metaverse to properly take shape, the company has come up with some new VR games at its annual Meta Quest Gaming Showcase. These games are mostly the VR versions of popular titles like Among Us, Ghostbusters, and more. Here’s a look at them.
Meta Announces New VR Games
The Mark Zuckerberg-owned company has announced around 12 new VR games, which will be made available for users on Quest 2 within this year. So, no long waiting. Here’s what got announced:
Among Us VR
The popular gaming title will now have a first-person view, along with finger-pointing during the voting part. It is said to change the way this popular multiplayer title works. You can check out its trailer to get a better idea.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners – Chapter 2: Retribution
