Oculus Quest’s fan-favourite archery game - In Death: Unchained - just got a significant graphical update for Quest 2.

The mobile VR game has already boasted some impressive visuals but the new update takes it that one step further.

"We wanted the update to really show off what the new headset can do, and this is arguably the biggest Quest 2 update among existing games," says Wojtek Podgórski, Superbright’s CEO.

"We’ve been working on this since the game came out, it took major effort but we can now display the game's whole world at once, with beautiful new atmospheric effects, while making everything even sharper and smoother. The game just looks and feels even better on Quest 2" he offered.
