VR fans have long awaited the release of Asgard’s Wrath 2, the sequel to the award-winning 2019 Oculus Rift-based original, and now that the game has launched exclusively on Meta Quest headsets it’s absolutely blowing away the VR community and garnering some excellent initial reviews.
The game, which sees a Norse god stranded in Egypt and seeking help from the local gods and legends to get revenge on a betraying Loki, is an fully-fledged open world action RPG boasting nearly 100 hours of gameplay as players take control of four distinct characters with their own stories and progression. At the time of writing it’s sitting on a seriously impressive 94 on Metacritic, putting it in the five top-rated gams for the year among the likes of Baldur’s Gate 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
Better yet, by some miracle not only is this class-leading VR experience being called a must-play, but it also happens to be free with new purchases of the latest Meta Quest 3 headset. Buying and registering a Quest 3 before January , arguably the best way to play the game, will automatically make you eligible to download and keep Asgard’s Wrath 2 (plus six months of Meta Quest+ membership with the 512GB model) saving you $89.99 AUD on the game.

IGN scored Asgard’s Wrath 2 a huge 10/10, saying “Asgard’s Wrath 2 is the full-fledged VR open-world RPG I’ve always wanted to play, and for that matter it’s one of the best RPGs in any perspective I’ve played in years. With four unique characters and stories, fantastic and satisfying combat, intricate and rewarding RPG systems, a great story, and an entire roguelite dungeon-crawling mode thrown in just to show off, this masterpiece completely nails almost everything it tries – much of which has never been pulled off in VR. The Meta Quest 3’s killer app has arrived, and even after more than 90 hours throwing squids at gloriously shredded lizards and whipping across gaps, I’m still eager to jump back in.”
GameRant gave it a 9/10 and said, “Travel across vast realms inhabited by the gods in pursuit of the Trickster God Loki, who threatens to undo the threads of the universe. It’s up to you to battle gods and monsters alike as you take on one of the biggest and most epic scale Action RPGs ever experienced in VR. Alongside legendary Egyptian gods, you’ll fight deadly warriors and awe-inspiring mythical creatures through physics-based, visceral combat with unique weapons and playstyles. Possess unique mortal heroes and convert loyal animals into your own warrior followers as you explore a massive, free-roaming and living world and solve mind-bending god-scale puzzles.”
Siliconera also scored it a 9/10, suggesting that, “Asgard’s Wrath 2 feels like the Super Mario Bros / Duck Hunt of Quest VR games, due to its range, and way it invites people to play.”
We’ve been playing the game ourselves as well, and while we’ve only just begun what is supposedly a 90+ hour journey and so aren’t quite ready to share solid opinions just yet, the early impression has been largely resonant with the reviews that are out there. If you’ve got a Quest 2 or Quest Pro headset it’s a no-brainer and of you’re looking at picking up a Quest 3 – now is the time.
