It's been a long time in the making but the Oculus Rift, the first major consumer-facing virtual reality headset, is set to arrive in less than two weeks. The Facebook-owned company opened pre-orders in early July at $599 and now, Oculus VR has revealed what games will be available from day one and how much they'll cost.
Below is a complete list of launch-ready Oculus Rift games:
- Adrift: $19.99
- Adventure Time: Magic Man's Head Games: $4.99
- AirMech: Command: $39.99
- Albino Lullaby: $9.99
- Audio Arena: $9.99
- Project CARS: $49.99
- Chronos: $49.99
- Darknet: $9.99
- Dead Secret: $14.99
- Defense Grid 2 Enhanced VR Edition: $29.99
- Dreadhalls: $9.99
- Elite Dangerous: Deluxe Edition: $59.99
- Esper 2: $9.99
- EVE Valkyrie Founder's Pack: $59.99
- Fly to KUMA: $14.99
- EVE Gunjack: $9.99
- Herobound SC: $9.99
- Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes: $14.99
- Lucky's Tale: Bundled with Rift
- Omega Agent: $14.99
- Radial G: $24.99
- Rooms: $14.99
- Shufflepuck Cantina Deluxe VR: $9.99
- Smashing the Battle: $19.99
- Vanishing of Ethan Carter: TBA
- Vektron Revenge: $9.99
- VR Tennis Online: $24.99
- Pinball FX2 VR: $14.99
- BlazeRush: TBA
- Windlands: $19.99
It's worth pointing out that anyone who pre-orders the Rift will also receive EVE Valkyrie free of charge.
You may notice that some of the games on the list are already available on the Gear VR but the biggest takeaway here is the pricing – or rather, a lack of "standardized" pricing. Adventure Time: Magic Man's Head Games, for example, retails for just $4.99 which is about what you'd expect to pay for a premium mobile title. EVE Valkyrie and Elite Dangerous, meanwhile, command $59.99 each, the same as a blockbuster AAA title on a next-gen console or the PC. Between them, there are games at virtually every price point.
This is only the beginning as Oculus promises there are more than 100 additional games coming to the Rift this year.
The Oculus Rift launches on March 28.
