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

What are the new VR games in July 2024? Here are our monthly highlights.

June saw several VR games receive late delays, though big releases still came through. We reviewed Blade & Sorcery, Taskmaster VR, Neon Squad Tactics, Riven, F1 24, Sushi Ben, Silent Slayer, Journey To Foundation, and VRIDER, alongside publishing reviews-in-progress for Downtown Club and Death Horizon: Cyberfusion. Other notable releases include Eternal Starlight, Body of Mine, Zengence, and BlackForge.

July looks to be similarly busy, and right now, a few notable games are launching across all major VR/MR platforms. As always, keep an eye on our upcoming VR games list for a more comprehensive list, and we’ll update the July list as more VR games receive release dates or delays.
