E3 is always one of the most interesting times of the year no matter what your interest in the gaming industry. Whether you're simply a player looking to see impressive previews of upcoming games, you're an online share trading fanatic looking at which companies look like they're going to fare well with their next releases, or you're involved with the industry yourself, there is always plenty to get your teeth into at E3. If VR is an area you are especially interested in (and why wouldn't you – it's awesome), here are three games shown at E3 2017 that are worth your attention.


Theseus
If you love games that blend combat, strategy, stealth and area puzzles, as well as dark, epic quests, Theseus is sure to tick all of your boxes. With a similar feel in terms of tone to franchises like god of War and Darksiders, this hero quest game pits you against a 33-foot minotaur, who you have to defeat in all kinds of different encounters. The game itself is expected out this summer, but the playable demo should debut at E3. This definitely looks like an exciting, atmospheric game that could potentially bring some challenging gameplay elements as well as a well-designed and immersive VR environment.

The Persistence
UK developers Firesprite found some VR success with their Playroom VR title, however their newest venture into VR gaming is looking to be a much darker experience. Set on board a spaceship, this is a horror game with zombie alien mutant type things, and is a procedurally generated game where every foray around the spaceship features a new layout. This game has an interesting semi-roguelike style where when a character dies you have to start again (in a new map) with a new one, but some things can be made to persist from one run to the next thanks to special cells the player can harvest (hence the name The Persistence). This could strike a nice balance between a randomly generated roguelike and some RPG style levelling capabilities, and also help differentiate between this and other horror VR experiences.

Bloody Zombies
When you think of conventional gaming concepts that lend themselves well to VR, the side scrolling beat 'em up genre isn't usually one that springs to mind. However, this new game by nDreams aims to show that this format can work well with VR gaming, and also allow for some interesting multiplayer capabilities with both VR and screen based players teaming up. Within the VR view of the game, things can be hidden for players to find outside of the borders of the normal screen view, and the characters appear as moving cardboard cut-outs within the 3D environment. If you want something fun and innovative that you can play with friends who don't have PlayStation VR yet, this is definitely a good game to check out.
