New, 10 comments

The Oculus Rift is coming, and now we finally know some of the very first virtual reality games we'll be able to play on it. At a press conference today, Oculus unveiled the final consumer version of its VR headset, as well as some of the initial games that will be playable when it finally launches. Some we already knew about, some are new, but all look potentially very exciting. The list includes games like sci-fi flight sim Eve Valkyrie, atmospheric RPG Chronos, and Edge of Nowhere, an arctic survival game from Insomniac Games, the studio behind Ratchet & Clank and Resistance.

Other notable developers, like Rock Band studio Harmonix, are also making games for the platform, though no specifics were revealed. Oculus also announced that it will be investing $10 million in indie games in order to bring more VR experiences to the Rift, and revealed a partnership with Microsoft that will let you stream Xbox One games to the headset. You'll even be able to play them with a bundled Xbox One controller. You can check out an overview of the new games in the video above, as well as some lengthier trailers below. Expect to see more VR games at E3 next week.
