Valve’s first-ever Steam VR Fest is now taking place in honor of the constantly growing and exciting world of virtual reality. Much like the Steam Next Fest, the VR Fest is looking to highlight new VR games by offering thousands of discounts and demos for upcoming VR titles.

This includes all VR headsets, so it doesn’t matter if you’re using the Oculus Quest, Rift, Valve Index, or any other PC-compatible headsets. However, the games do need to be compatible with the VR headset you’re using.

But don’t worry about not being able to find compatible games, because there are thousands of VR titles up for grabs. Additionally, a lot of games have free demos, so you can try them out before purchasing. This means that until the sale ends on the 28th, you have the next seven days to try out as many VR games as you want and grab them at a discounted price. So no rush, there’s lots of time.

Welcome to Steam VR Fest!

 

Our Best Picks for Steam VR Fest

Right here you can find our go-to suggestions for the VR games to try out during the event. These are the demos that gave us the best experience, and the discounts we think you should cash in on before it’s too late.

Best Demos:

Hitman III – We all know of the Hitman Franchise, however, experiencing it in VR is definitely a demo worth trying.

Automobilista 2 – If you want to experience a racing simulator in VR, this game is definitely the first to check out. It’s also coming in at a discounted price.

RUINSMAGUS – This is a great pick if you want to try out a VR action JRPG all about magic.

Best Discounts:

Half-Life: Alyx – One of the highest-rated story titles of 2020, this game is a steal of an experience at 50% off and most evidently our number one choice.

rFactor 2 – If you want another solid racing simulator, rFactor 2 is coming in at 75% off, a much lower price tag than Automobilista 2.

Superhot VR – All about slow-motion cinematic gameplay, Superhot is an extremely fun VR title seeing a huge discount of 60% off.
