E3 2015 starts on Tuesday 16th of June. During the E3 event Oculus will be showing their Consumer version of the Rift and demoing a good selection of VR games. I hope to play most if not all of them.
EVE: Valkyrie from CCP Games
EVE: Valkyrie is probably one of the most talked about VR games expected to launch with the Rift.
In EVE: Valkyrie you are in command of a heavily armed fighter in the most realistic dog-fighting game available on any platform. Immersive VR technology puts you right in the cockpit for visceral team-based action.
Chronos from Gunfire Games
Chronos is an atmospheric RPG that chronicles one young man’s lifelong quest to save his homeland from a great evil. Central to this quest is an ancient labyrinth, which holds the secrets necessary to restore life and peace to his home. However, the architects of this labyrinth designed it to open only once a year. The labyrinth is a test, and each time the hero fails he is cast out and must wait one year to return.
Edge of Nowhere from Insomniac Games
Edge of Nowhere is a VR third-person action-adventure from acclaimed independent developer Insomniac Games. Travel to the far reaches of the Antarctic mountains in search of a missing expedition team. What appears to be a rescue mission takes a turn as you venture into the deep unknown, and discover a surreal world that will test your wits and sanity. Scale towering mountains and use makeshift weapons to survive and avoid descending into madness. In Edge of Nowhere, nothing is what it seems and the unexpected lurks from all sides.
Damaged Core by High Voltage
Very little is known about Damaged Core at this point. We know it is a first-person type of game. However since it being shown at E3 2015 next week VRCircle will find out more and report back.
VR Sports: Challenge by Sanzaru
Just like Damaged core. Not too much is known about this game. But from the picture you can imagine a potentially awesome first-person style Ice Hockey game.
Esper from Coatsink
Esper is a first-person Oculus Rift / Samsung Gear VR puzzle game set in 1975. Certain members of the public begin to display extra-sensory abilities and, in the interests of national security, the government panic and start forcing citizens to undergo aptitude tests.
AirMech VR by Carbon
Details on this are pending from E3. However you can probably guess what this game will be like. You're in a Big mech and blow stuff up. Perhaps similar to the Vox Machinae demo.
Herobound: Spirit Champion by Gunfire Games
Herobound is currently already out on GearVR and is a Mobile Virtual Reality Action/Adventure game where you control a little goblin dude in a quest to save the world.
On Oculus you can expect bigger and better.
Lucky’s Tale from Playful
Lucky's Tale is a delightful platforming adventure game designed exclusively for the Oculus Rift. Join Lucky as he runs, jumps, climbs and spins his way through bright, colorful worlds filled with thrilling challenges, wacky creatures, and all the shiny things a little fox could ever want!
Built from the ground up for virtual reality, the game invites you to step inside a vibrant, living world like never before. Whether you’re racing with Lucky through lush trees, dodging swamp pits, battling menacing bosses, or mastering mini-games, you’ll feel like you’re really there thanks to the magic of VR.
