Oculus VR, the company behind the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, announced today they will release a game with the working title "VR Quest" for Samsung's upcoming Gear VR device.

Oculus has partnered with Samsung on the development of the Gear VR, which is scheduled to be released sometime this fall for $199. It will require that the Galaxy Note 4 also be attached to the headset for the device to work.

Today's announcement that Oculus will also release a game for the Gear VR was made during the company's first Oculus Connect developer conference by its chief technology officer John Carmack. He stated the game will be a third-person dungeon crawler that he described as "Zelda-esque", which likely means it will have gameplay similar to Nintendo's classic Legend of Zelda titles.

No other details about "VR Quest" were revealed, nor did Oculus offer a release date for the game. Do you think this game will help sales of the Gear VR?
