New VR Games & Releases April 2024: Quest, SteamVR, PSVR 2 & More

Want to learn more about new VR games in April 2024? Here are our monthly highlights.

March saw a varied slate for VR games. Between colorful platformers like Max Mustard and survival horror like OVRDARK, those were joined by The Pirate Queen, cyubeVR, Tropico, Lawn Mowing Simulator VR and Swarm 2. While we didn’t review many games last month, GDC saw us go hands-on with the Angry Birds MR Mode, Laser Dance, VRIDER, Anarchitects, Runaways, Underworld Overseer and more.

April looks set to build upon this with a diverse selection of new VR games. We’ve got a more extensive rundown in our upcoming VR games list and make sure to keep this page bookmarked too. As we learn about more major release dates (or delays) announcements, we’ll continue updating these lists.

Right now, these are the major new VR games reaching Quest, PC VR, Pico and PSVR 2 this April.

A free VR demo is available now.
