Oculus 6 Connect's first day is in the books, and Oculus didn't hold back when it came to announcing new games for its PC-powered VR headset. Below is every game announced at Oculus Connect 6 for the Oculus Rift.
Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond
This new Medal of Honor game is the result of a partnership between Oculus Studios and Respawn Entertainment. The game focuses on realism and making it feel like you're living in World War II. It has both multiplayer modes and a full narrative campaign set in World War II.
Respawn Entertainment is the team behind Titanfall, Apex Legends, and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond isn't the first game on the Oculus Rift that's a first-person shooter, but it is a major title from a studio that's made some excellent first-person shooters already. The game launches in 2020 on the Oculus Rift platform.
Vader Immortal: Episode II
The first episode of Vader Immortal brought lightsaber combat and the Star Wars universe to the Oculus ecosystem. Vader Immortal: Episode II takes that one step further by having you be trained 1-on-1 by Darth Vader himself. In addition to being able to swing a lightsaber to battle enemies, this game teaches you in the ways of the force. You can throw people and objects like Vader does in the movies and comics.
In addition to being announced at Oculus Connect 6, the game was also made immediately available. Players can download it for the Oculus Rift platform as well as the Oculus Quest.
This open-world action-adventure game comes to the Oculus Rift platform on November 14, 2019. In the game, you can use stealth, a cloaking arm, and your wits to destroy enemies with a variety of weapons. You can dual-wield machine guns and shoot electricity at your enemies to take on several enemies at once.
The trailer for Stormland shows off incredible graphics and gameplay that you can customize thanks to the vast array of weapons at your disposal within the game. You can pre-order Stormland now to unlock exclusive items.
In this game, you're a god, but you have to fight as mortals to earn yourself a reputation as a legend. Inspired by Norse mythology, this RPG has you control a spellcaster, warrior, rogue, and more to combat your enemies. Your quest takes you on a journey to complete Loki's tests of worthiness and includes over 40 hours of gameplay.
The game launches on October 10, 2019. If you pre-order the game, you'll receive an exclusive sword and shield inspired by Valkyrie warriors.
