Do you have an HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, or a Windows Mixed Reality headset? Love playing new games but don't always want to shell out $20 or more just to play each new one? HTC has heard your call and created Viveport Infinity, the service that VR gamers have been enjoying for years and only continues to get better with age. HTC upgraded Viveport back in May, giving gamers unlimited access to everything in the library of content on the service for a single monthly price.
It's like the Netflix of VR, and HTC is constantly adding titles to the Viveport Infinity service to bolster its ranks and make it more attractive for customers, too.
At more than 600 titles, the addition of 9 new ones is always welcome, and marks some exciting new content for players to explore and experience, including 5 new games, a new video series from the hosts of Mythbusters, 2 interactive adventures, and even the 3DsenVR NES emulator that turns 48 of your favorite NES games into a wholly new experience.
Here's what's new.
Developer Charm Games is bringing about two titles to the service, and both are puzzle-based experiences that'll twist your brain as you progress. The first is FORM, a sort of "escape room" style game that takes place in your own mind, filled with surreal puzzles and physics-defying experiences. The second is their latest adventure, Twilight Path, which takes you to far-away spirit lands full of mystery and intrigue. You'll be restoring this brilliant world as you explore it and solving the mystery of what broke it in the first place.
Space Ops VR from Fibrum puts players in the shoes of a front-lines space marine. In Space Ops, it's your duty to ensure the safety of a deep space mission by scouting ahead and making the path safe for the incoming sojourners. Space Ops supports both single player and co-op multiplayer, and it tons of fun to enjoy with friends and new acquaintances alike.
Ninja Legends will have players slicing their way through waves of powerful ninjas. The game trains players on how to be more accurate with weapons like Katanas and Shuriken in an effort to vanquish evil and take down their enemies.
3DsenVR is a unique NES Emulator that takes 48 favorite NES games and transforms them into a VR world. While it may sound rudimentary, experiencing these games in a 3D world that can be panned and tilted with your head adds a unique element to the games that many of us loved and grew up with.
PowerBeatsVR takes the idea of VR fitness and throws a fantasy element into the mix, giving players the ability to work out in strange new worlds (or worlds of old) as they duck, dodge, punch and block their way through each challenge. It bears more than a passing resemblance to BoxVR, for sure, but it's a great way to workout without having to leave the air conditioned confines of your home in this hot Summer weather.
Bonfire is an immersive, animated VR experience that has you crash land on an alien world and just try to survive the night alongside your robot pal Debbie. Keep the fire lit as Debbie helps you find out what's out in the darkness.
Last but not least are some awesome educational experiences, which come in the form of Trex: Skeleton Crew, and Mindbenders. Mindbenders is an educational video series from the hosts of Mythbusters which takes viewers through a range of scientific principles, made particularly interesting thanks to the elaborate workshop and style of these entertaining hosts. If you've ever seen Mythbusters, you'll understand how they can take even something mundane and make it interesting.
TRex: Skeleton Crew gives players a way to experience the American Museum of Natural History's amazing dinosaur exhibit without having to travel all the way to New York City. It's the same TRex VR experience that's at the museum, actually, but in the comfort of your own home.
