American subscription streaming service Netflix and LA-based Indie game studio Tender Claws have revealed a new game set, Stranger Things VR, that will be released on major VR platforms coming to Winter of 2023.
The best part about the game – it will let you play as the villainous Vecna and “enact revenge on Eleven and Hawkins.”
Stranger Things VR was announced during the Stranger Things Day 2022 celebrations with a short teaser that features season 4’s ticking grandfather clock, demogorgons, and even a cameo by Eleven.
