Unfortunately we didn’t learn more about Oculus Quest’s launch date at GDC 2019 this week, although Oculus did reveal a few more titles coming to the standalone 6DOF headset at launch this Spring.
We were really hoping for the company to finally unmask the full 50+ launch titles promised by Facebook CEO & founder Mark Zuckerberg at Oculus Connect 5 last year, although it appears they’re holding onto that particular bombshell for whatever conference fits the bill for a Quest launch date newsblast.
In the meantime, here’s every Quest launch title currently confirmed by Oculus:
Revealed just this week, Beat Saber (2018) is officially coming to Oculus Quest, so you’ll finally be able to slash those flying rhythm blocks in the forest, in a large-sized public restroom, or on the Moon.
Oculus probably shelled out beaucoup bucks for Epic Games to create this gem of a shooter. As a 2017 title, it still hold up today, something we can’t say about all games from the first consumer wave of game design. It’s clear optimizing the lush visuals for Quest will be a challenge, although who better to work with Unreal Engine than the company that created it?
Polyarc created the third-person platformer-puzzler mostly for seated users, as you control a special little mouse pal named Quill on her adventure to reclaim her kidnapped uncle from Saffrog, the fire-breathing snake. Quest is great for room-scale, but you probably still want to sit down from time to time. That’s where Moss comes in.
Crytek’s The Climb (2016) is a pretty meditate experience when you give into the fact that you will fall over and over and over, probably in one of the most beautiful and well-realized VR environments out there. Getting to the top is a pretty cool rush, but getting there without cables to tangle you is sure to up the immersion factor.
Created by Coatsink Games: Set between a mountaintop observatory and an ever-changing fantasy world, explore and solve puzzles as you unravel the fate of missing schoolgirl Lorna McCabe, guided by the journal of Edgar Mansfield, voiced by Sir Patrick Stewart. Shadow Point supports full-tracked locomotion, full body interaction, hand tracking and teleportation systems
Dead & Buried II
It’s a whole new set of gameplay modes for the wild west-themed shooter, this time produced in-house by Oculus themselves (the first was developed by Gunfire Games). Online death matches. Four-player horde co-op. Dynamite. Plenty of guns. It’s also coming to Rift with cross-play too.
Journey of the Gods
Created by Turtle Rock Studios: The chaos moon is coming, threatening the peaceful inhabitants of the land. It’s up to you to unlock the power of the gods in your battle against the encroaching darkness. Become the hero in this legendary VR quest against the forces of evil. Before completing this epic journey you will explore a wide and wondrous new world, engage in ranged and melee combat with the sinister celestial servants of the chaos moon, and solve the mysteries of the ancients and gain the mystical power of the gods.
Star Wars Vader Immortal
Created by ILMxLAB: Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series transports fans to the dark lord’s home turf of Mustafar, and with lightsaber in hand, puts them at the center of an original Star Wars story. The canonical immersive adventure takes place between Star Wars – Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope, and is set up by the events of Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, ILMxLAB’s award-winning location-based virtual reality experience.
Superhot VR is said to launch on Quest, although it’s uncertain if it will be a day-one launch title when the headset arrives to consumers sometime in Spring 2019. Considering the game is complete enough to demo to the public though at OC5 last year, there’s a good chance the hard-hitting premium title will come as a day-one title.
We’ll be adding to this list over time, so check back for the latest news in Oculus Quest launch titles.
