The popular city-builder game Cities: Skylines (2015), is getting a VR version called Cities: VR. It will be available for the Meta Quest 2 in Spring 2022. Just like in the original Cities: Skylines, you’ll do urban-planning and city management, with the chance to fully immerse yourself in the world by either getting a bird’s eye view of the city or zooming down to see the city in action.
Luke Ross, the guy behind popular VR mods for games like Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2, asked his Patreon supporters what game he should do next in VR, and Cyberpunk 2077 won. He says if all goes to plan, the Cyberpunk 2077 VR mod should be released in January 2022. Since the game is already in first-person view, that makes translating to VR a lot easier.
