Last week Oculus VR announced a new update to its Oculus Home platform bring with it a Coming Soon section, improved downloads, automatic updates and user ratings. Head to the company’s website and you’ll find 6 titles that are coming soon, but due to launch this year is Oculus Touch and now the controllers have their own section.
Oculus revealed in a blog posting back in June that its positional tracked controllers would launch with more than 30 made-for virtual reality (VR) videogames but as yet hasn’t announced when Oculus Touch will launch. Could this new listing hint that the launch may not be that far away?
There’s 17 titles currently list with more likely to follow, they are: Dead & Buried; Ripcoil; VR Sports Challenge; Killing Floor: Incursion; SUPERHOT; The Climb; The Unspoken; Wilson’s Heart; Luna; Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope; Giant Cop; I Expect You to Die; Job Simulator; Fantastic Contraption; Moon Strike; Arizona Sunshine and Pulsar Arena.
While the images are up none of them link to any further information and there’s several missing from the blog announcement. Confirmed to be available for launch are Rock Band VR from Harmonix; Pro Fishing Challenge VR by Opus and Oculus Medium which will ship with the controllers.
In the new coming soon section there’s Dragon Front, Eagle Flight, Damaged Core, Feral Rites, Obduction and Star Trek: Bridge Crew. It’s interesting to see Star Trek: Bridge Crew not in the Oculus Touch section, its first reveal prior to E3 2016 showed Star Trek actors just using the controllers, so could the videogame see an earlier release?
