Facebook launches Oculus Rift replacement this spring called Rift S.
Each launch of the Oculus VR headset has so far been accompanied by a collection of new games. These five major Oculus exclusives, launched this year, can be hits on the Rift S.
All five games are fully funded by Oculus Studios, a division of Facebook’s VR content. Everything will work with the current Oculus Rift headset. Rift S is an update, fully backward compatible.
Stormland is a joint AAA class adventure in the open world of the open world from Insomniac Games.
The game has a huge open world, which is procedural and handmade. It is also equipped with mechanics such as craft, slip and rock climbing. The graphics look incredible. This, to be honest, can be the most beautiful open world in VR.
Asgard’s Wrath is a Scandinavian-style action RPA AAA class.
At Asgard’s Wrath, you take on the role of a Scandinavian god who has the power to infuse the bodies of mortals. During the 30+ hour adventure, you will often rush between the perspectives of a towering God and ordinary mortal warriors, thus taking advantage of the fierce melee fighting of the game.
Lone echo 2
Ready at Dawn
Lone Echo 2 is a continuation of the hit 2017 from the developer Ready at Down
We loved the original Lone Echo. In some reviews, it was noted as a “landmark achievement” in locomotion, user interface and interaction. It was also noted that the character-driven narrative creates “an irresistible sense of presence that few VR games could only hope to match.” The biggest drawback of the game was that it just felt incomplete, making us crave a full continuation.
So far, little is known about the Lone Echo II, but if it’s something like the original, it will most likely be a game that you just need to play.
Twisted Pixel Games
Defector is an action, spy game that turns you into Jason Bourne (or James Bond, if you so wish). Originally scheduled for 2018, the game was postponed for some time this year.
This game probably will not make you think a lot, except to decide how to smooth the conversation.
On Oculus Connect 4 in 2017, it was announced that Titanfall developer was working on an exclusive for Oculus Rift, which will be launched in 2019.
Until now, no details have been given, except that it is definitely not a Titanfall VR spinoff. But, given the impressive Respawn catalog with Titanfall, Titanfall 2 and Apex Legends outside of VR, we expect a lot from this shooter.
