Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and the spangly new PlayStation VR are gathering steam, building hype and starting work developing a catalog of games to make their asses worthwhile. As we’ve said before, this could be the beginning of a new era for games, or it could be a damp squib like lighting a fart in a rainstorm. Nobody knows yet.  

One thing we can say for VR gaming, though, is that it’s trying just about everything. We’ve flipped burgers for ravening zombie patrons. We’ve been for a swim with huge-ass marine dinosaur dudes. We’ve toured a virtual IKEA. All of which is fine in a nutso sort of way, but we’re not really tapping into what VR tech can do for video games.

The main genre that comes to mind is horror. Most of us Ego-gamers have blasted the scrotes off of legions of lumpen flesh-things in our time, but in VR? With said beasts actually flailing their talons/tentacles/other assorted appendages at our ACTUAL EYEBALLS? That’s just a shat pair of undercrackers waiting to happen, right there.

On that note, let’s take an ogle at Face Your Fears, coming to Oculus Rift this Halloween. According to devs Turtle Rock Studios (Evolve), the game will center around all kinds of scary-ass scenarios. In one, players will experience standing in a child’s haunted bedroom at night, while another sees you powerless at the top of a skyscraper while some kind of demonic giant robot bastard climbs up the building at you.

As Game Spot reports, only these two scenarios have been unveiled so far, and there’ll be much more to the title. With that said, though, holy hell that kid’s face.

Face Your Fears hits Gear VR on October 31.
