The New Stranger Things game allows you to play as Vecna

Stranger Things’ next video game adaptation is a VR title placing the player in the role of Vecna, season 4’s principal bad guy, and growing his backstory.

Stranger Things VR, from Wide Ocean Big Jacket developer Tender Claws, gets the other show’s characters required by having Vecna attack their memories and dreams. Without offering a lot of the story from the show’s latest season, Vecna was once a human named Henry Creel, and he has good reason to despise both Eleven and Hawkins National Lab; Stranger Things VR is one more opportunity for him to have his retribution.

Inside their #1 characters’ dreams, players will “harness telekinetic powers to battle humans and creatures alike,” a news release said. Stranger Things VR will likewise uncover more about “Creel’s transformation into Vecna and his influence on the events of prior seasons,” the statement said.

Stranger Things VR will send off on “major VR platforms,” as per Sunday’s declaration; Tender Claws wasn’t any more unambiguous than that. Sony declared PlayStation VR2’s launch date and cost a week ago. Stranger Things VR will launch in “winter 2023” which sounds more like December 2023 than January.

Stranger Things’ fifth and last season doesn’t yet have a premiere date; season 4 just wrapped up on July 1.
