August is here and it’s time for an update on important VR game releases that are due this month from your team here at vrgamecritic. So what’s in store you might ask? Well, if we had to highlight a couple of releases; HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners finally get a chance to enjoy first-person superhero game Megaton Rainfall that came out last year on PSVR. We got two PlayStation VR exclusives, Bow to Blood that allows you to take to the skies in a powerful airship, and the highly anticipated team-based tactical shooter Firewall Zero Hour. Then last but not least, for all headsets, Torn – a dark science-fiction mystery game inspired by The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror.

Now there are certainly more releases for everyone to enjoy and only time will tell what turns out to be the best experience. As always, we welcome you to share your tips of “stand out” releases for our monthly updates - simply get in touch on Twitter, Facebook or via email.
