Netflix and Stranger Things have announced a new virtual reality video game is in the works.

The streaming giant is teaming up with developer Tender Claw to bring you this epic game, where you'll get to play as the one and only Vecna.

When you watch Stranger Things, you're obviously rooting for Eleven and the Hawkins gang, but if you ever wanted to step into the shoes of this terrifying TV villain then you'll soon have your chance.

The video game is set to drop in winter 2023 for people in the northern hemisphere, which means it'll drop in the first few months of next year (or, god forbid the last few months of the year).

The official description for the game said: '"Play as Vecna in this new Stranger Things adventure in VR.

"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."

This certainly isn't the first foray into the gaming world for the Stranger Things universe.

We've already been fed several mobile and console games, which included a virtual reality title.

However, there's no doubt this game will be absolutely epic because you'll get to play as Vecna.

For those unaware, Vecna was the main villain in the fourth season of the TV series, which dropped earlier this year.

He was the Upside Down manifestation of Henry Creel, aka 001, and he wreaked serious havoc on Hawkins, Indiana over the course of several episodes.

He prayed upon people who were struggling with trauma and managed to infect their minds before lifting their bodies into the air and then snapping all their bones like twigs.

Eleven did some pretty heavy damage to Vecna in the closing episodes and now you could have the chance to get one back on her.
