Steam Next Fest is back once again, kicking off 2023’s first celebration with new demos for upcoming PC VR games next week.
Update: Steam Next Fest is now live. The original article continues as follows, originally published January 30.
Highlighting upcoming games through various demos, Steam Next Fest – February 2023 edition spans all areas of PC gaming, and virtual reality is no exception. VR has always factored into these Steam festivals and this time, there’s 17 different demos for upcoming PC VR to pick between.
Arguably, the biggest PC VR highlights include Formula Retro Racing – World Tour, Gazzlers and upcoming metroidvania sequel Yupitergrad 2: The Lost Station, but there’s some interesting games to pore through. VReken promises a “physics driven beat ’em up and self-defense trainer,” Ornament Express tasks you with recovering a client’s belongings through puzzle solving, while Band Space looks like a tribute on Harmonix’s Rock Band series, which had its own official VR adaptation in 2017.
