We take a closer look at what the genre of magic has to offer us hopeful wizards, as we visit exciting enchanted lands and get closer to the feeling of having magical powers than ever before thanks to VR. Our selection of games has a lot of variety to offer, be it the control and feel, the visceral combat or game modes. From the already highly rated ‘The Unspoken’ to ‘The Wizards’ which is just out of early access, there should be something here for any fan of the genre.
Unfortunately, PlayStation VR owners are not blessed with any options right now, but by the time we revisit and update our article there’s hopefully going to be more out there. ‘Waltz of the Wizard’ has been confirmed for PSVR, though there’s no clarity on exactly when that might happen.
