Stranger Things VR will release in late 2023 when one of the most innovative VR development studios will create a game in collaboration with Netflix. Tender Claws is developing and publishing Stranger Things VR in collaboration with the show’s writers to explore Henry Creel’s transformation into the villain Vecna.
The game is described as being psychological horror and action “from a never-before-seen perspective of Vecna as he explores unknown realities, forms a hive mind, and enacts his plan for revenge on Eleven and Hawkins.” Stranger Things VR will hit “major VR platforms” in late 2023.
“We’re thrilled to be able to live in the Stranger Things universe and immerse ourselves in the rich inner worlds of its characters through Tender Claws’ unique approach to nested worlds and breathtaking fantasy landscapes,” said Tender Claws directors Samantha Gorman and Danny Cannizzaro in a joint prepared statement. “As fans, we want this game to be special, and we’re inspired by the support and enthusiasm we’ve received from Netflix and the Stranger Things creative team.”
