This week is almost all about VR with 2 massive titles for PSVR to have you channel your inner Nathan Drake or get your Rick and Morty on and the Oculus Quest just releasing you might need to check out of the real world for a while. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

On Wednesday PSVR owners will want to pick-up Blood and Truth. A spiritual sequel to the awesome London Heist demo that had you in VR firefights the new title puts you in the role of action hero and special forces soldier Ryan Marks. You play through every gunfight, car chase, leaping off buildings and more. If you ever wanted to play a VR Nathan Drake then make sure your PS Move controllers are charged for this.

From some of the minds behind BioShock and System Shock 2 comes the cell shaded FPS of Void Bastards. Out for Steam on Wednesday and Xbox One on Thursday, this part strategy part shooter has you set your own mission and then using a nearly endless supply of prisoners (but only one at a time) for you to control you need to complete it. This one looks pretty slick.

New Rick and Morty might be months away but on Friday you can pick up the latest from the creator behind Pickle Rick Justin Roiland with Trover Saves the Universe. Playable on PSVR and regular PlayStation, you play as a sort of 3rd person to Trover for combat and solving puzzles. Don’t worry, if you are doing it wrong Trover is definitely going to tell you what he thinks of your help. Get this on Friday.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to… Robo Recall: Unplugged on the Oculus Quest. Not quite new this week but if you managed to preorder yourself an Oculus Quest, the PC-less VR headset from Oculus you are no doubt going to see it arrive in the next few days with US orders filling late last week. This go anywhere headset just requires an Android device to pair and control but basically lets you take VR gaming anywhere. There is a big first-day catalogue already available with Beat Saber, Superhot and upcoming games like Vader Immortal but you gotta start somewhere so we suggest Robo Recall.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
