New VR Games March 2022
The Soloist (March 3rd) – Quest
Free-climbing megastar Alex Honnold stars in this 360 degree Oculus TV movie, airing in two parts.

Here you’ll follow Honnold on a series of death-defying climbs in 3D.
Liteboxer (March 3rd) – Quest
Another jab at a VR fitness subscription, this time focussing on boxing. Punch along to songs from Bon Jovi, Lady Gaga, and more as the app tracks the force and accuracy of your hits. The app’s going to cost $18.99 a month and there’s a seven-day free trial for anyone interested.
Vox Machinae (March 3rd) – Quest 2, PC VR
After a long stint in early access, Vox Machinae is finally getting a full release that includes a Quest 2 version and a full single-player campaign alongside the staple multiplayer.
