8 Best Free VR Games

In the ’00s, the concept of “fun” changed drastically after the introduction of VR in the gaming industry. Virtual reality has started to take a solid place in our lives, especially in the last decade. With the technology and its development, we can state that virtual reality is leaving its reputation to be a luxury and it has started to become more and more available for many game enthusiasts around the world. With that being said, we want to introduce you to our list of best free VR games to enjoy and experience VR cost-free.

8. Oculus First Contact

As one of the oldest games on the list, Oculus First Contact still made it to be one of the best free VR games on the market. We can call it an experience more than a game since it is rather a static game compared to other games on the list. There are numerous mysteries waiting to be solved in the game. Besides, there isn’t any conversation in the game. Actually, this feature of the game eliminates the language barrier and makes it reach more gamers easily. All you do is try to solve what you can do in the game by touching and searching your surroundings and trying to find a clue. If you have an Oculus headset, you should enjoy this interesting environment of Oculus First Contact.

7. Eye of the Temple: First Steps

You will encounter the astonishing New York cityscape and you can fly around the tall buildings without fear. To be fair, there isn’t much to do besides flying from one building to another and exploring the city, but if you enjoy the environment of the movie Spider-Man: Far From Home, you may seriously like the game since it is based on the movie, and also, it is free and we think that it is worth a shot. So, check the game out and get ready to be the superhero of your own adventure!

5. Mission: ISS

This is the second space experience on our list, and we love the games that take place in space. Mission: ISS offers you a ticket to the International Space Station, you can stroll around, explore the structure of the station and gaze at the fascinating view of space and the earth. Again, this can be considered as an experience rather than a game, because the main purpose is to explore and enjoy the amazing atmosphere. It is an unworldly experience and definitely, it will make you feel like you are the protagonist of a sci-fi movie!

4. Echo VR

Echo VR is one of the games on this list that we are quite surprised it is free. Also, it is one of the games that bring people together, which means you can interact with real people while enjoying the incredible space-like atmosphere. In the game, you are able to float in the air, meaning that you can experience a little how astronauts may feel in the spaceships without being one. It can be played with many VR headsets, you just need to relax and let yourself go with the flow in the game!

3. Propagation VR


The other game that makes us surprised about being free is Propagation VR. If you would love games that have a proper balance of horror, thrill, and action, this game is the perfect match for you. It is the classic zombie apocalypse horror game, with a little pinch of the claustrophobic environment effect, since it takes place in the subway. The gaming experience and the atmosphere in the game is incredibly realistic and the details in the game are amazing. The game supports many headsets like Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality and you can play it with Oculus Quest 2 with the help of Oculus Link.
