Stranger Things VR lets you ring the bell as Vecna, winter next year

If you watched Stranger Things season four, took one look at Venca and thought ‘god I wish that were me,’ you’re in luck, because Stranger Things VR makes that dream come true!

Strangers Things VR is being made in collaboration with Netflix from Virtual Virtual Reality developer Tender Claws, and rather than letting you play as one of the kids, this time round you’re playing as season four’s big bad Vecna. Taking on this role, you’ll be invading the memories and dreams of characters from the show, and you can “harness telekinetic powers to battle humans and creatures alike” (via Eurogamer).
