Following a SteamVR showcase early in the year, Green Hell VR will be arriving on Quest 2 this month.

Little Cities (April 21)
Little Cities is established by nDreams. This is a relaxed city builder game where a player populates idyllic islands with an urban infrastructure including buildings, roads ad services in a quest to create a sprawling urban hotspot. The game is presented in a god mode view from where you be laying tracks and putting social services such as schools and hospitals as you work to meet the needs of your citizens. However, this is not the only VR city builder set to arrive this month. There is also the Cities: VR which is set to be released on Quest 2 April 28th.

The PC VR version of Ultrawings was set to launch in March but it missed out on that launch window and is now set to arrive at some point this month.

The game also features HOTAS support, a definitive feature of the game.

Cities: VR (April 28)
Platform: Quest 2
Here is another VR city builder simulator set to release this month, just a few days after the release of Little Cities. Cities: VR has been spurned off the highly popular Skylines games and comes to Quest 2 with its core mechanics.
