Netflix and Tender Claws have announced Stranger Things VR, a new game set to be released on major VR platforms in Winter 2023 that will let you play as the villainous Vecna and “enact revenge on Eleven and Hawkins.”
Stranger Things VR was revealed during the Stranger Things Day 2022 celebrations with a short teaser that features the ticking grandfather clock, demogorgons, and even an appearance by Eleven.

“Play as Vecna in this new Stranger Things adventure in VR,” the official description reads. “Become an explorer of unknown realities as you form the hive mind and tame the void. Invade minds and conjure nightmares in your quest to enact revenge on Eleven and Hawkins. Stranger Things VR is a psychological horror/action game developed by Tender Claws and coming to major VR platforms in Winter 2023.”
For those who may not know, Vecna was the big bad of Stranger Things 4, and you can check out our breakdown of the villain, the truth about Vecna, and Vecna actor Jamie Campbell Bower breaking down the big final moment from Season 4, Part 2.
Tender Claws has previously worked on such games as Virtual Virtual Reality 1 & 2, The Under Presents, Tempest, Tendar, and George in the Tub.
Stranger Things is no… well… stranger to the world of video games and VR as there has been Stranger Things: The VR Experience, multiple mobile games, a mobile and console game called Stranger Things 3: The Game, and even a canceled Stranger Things game from the now-defunct Telltale Games.
