Anyone missing Stanger Things may have been very excited by the news from Meta this week. Stranger Things VR is now available to preorder for the Meta Quest and Quest Pro. It's due for release in autumn, and judging by the trailer, it looks pretty wild. 

We'd already had a glimpse of the game, but this week we got a deeper look at the mechanics of its unusual twist. Players will play not as a hero but as season four villain Vecna, conquering minds and exacting revenge (see our guide to the best Meta Quest deals and the best VR headsets if you're looking for a headset).
