Attack on Titan is one of the most popular anime series globally, captivating audiences for years with its apocalyptic setting, mysteries, and action. Considering its fast-paced, Spider-Man-style swinging mechanics, it makes perfect sense for a VR game—though you might need a bucket nearby for the potential motion sickness.

While most of the entries on the best PCVR games list keep your feet firmly on the ground, the upcoming Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable will have you soaring through the air, narrowly avoiding the grasp of naked Titans as you sweat in your best VR headsets. After being announced in 2022, it finally has a release date and an official gameplay trailer.

Attack on Titan VR: Unbreakable is releasing on Tuesday, July 23, 2024, and will launch in early access on Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro headsets for the attractive price of $4.99, but only during the early access period. Developer UNIVRS is releasing Chapters 1 and 2 with the early access launch, promising two to three hours of gameplay per chapter.

In the game, you play as a member of the Scout Regiment, fighting against the Titans for the survival of mankind. Based on both the anime and manga, this adaptation aims to immerse you in the experience of slicing Titans' necks and narrowly escaping death.

Many players will be hoping that Attack on Titan VR will make it onto the best Meta Quest 3 games list. However, the recent gameplay trailer is underwhelming. It lacks the visceral beauty of the anime adaptation, and the footage appears choppy and clunky.

Fortunately, UNIVRS plans to launch co-op, additional chapters (though it's unclear how many the game will ultimately have), and the full 1.0 version of the title later in 2024. The enticing price tag should keep many players occupied and battling gigantic naked Titans until the Behemoth VR release date later this year.

If you're an Attack on Titan fan eager to dive into virtual reality gaming, it might be worth waiting for the rumored Meta Quest 3S, which should offer a budget-friendly entry into the VR world.
