This is what Netflix announced Stranger Things VRa new game where fans of the show can play as Vecna, the big bad from sseason four. Tender Claws, the developer, promises that the game will provide some more information and backstories about the creepy villain that has been terrorizing Eleven, Will, Mike, Lucas and the others for the past season.
In season four of stranger things, the children and adults of Hawkins, Indiana, were forced to face deadly, dream-invading villain Vecna. (A name given to him by the children, based on a dungeons Villain.) Vecna was a dangerous enemy who could kill people through dreams, making him difficult to defeat. Season 4 left Vecna’s exact status unclear. While it seems unlikely that This new VR game will reveal where or if Vecna is still aroundit will delve into its past and origins.
Here is the official description from Netflix and the developer Tender Claws who previously developed Roomy Ocean Big jacket:
Stranger Things VR allows fans to experience the world of stranger things from the never-before-seen perspective of Vecna as he explores unknown realities, shapes the hive, and enacts his plan of revenge against Eleven and Hawkins. Players will enter the dreams and memories of fan-favorite characters, utilizing telekinetic powers to battle humans and creatures alike, while unveiling Henry Creel’s transformation into Vecna and his impact on the events of previous seasons.
Perhaps what interests me most is the part at the end of this description, the promise that we’ll see how Vecna has influenced the show’s past seasons. We know Vecna has been around in some form in previous seasons, but how does he connect to the events of the show leading up to Season 4 yet to be fully specified or explained. And while there are some interesting fan theories, I’m excited to get a more official look at what Vecna was up to at Hawkins before and during the past few seasons.
STrangerThings VR will not appear before winter 2023 and Netflix doesn’t say which platforms it will launch on, aside from a vague promise of all “major” VR platforms. My guess is PSVR2which will appear next year, as well Meta Quest 2 and PC VR via Steam. Hope this holds up stranger things Fans as the wait for season five continues. And hopefully this new game is better than the boring game of the third season Netflix was previously released in 2019.
