Posted on

We’ve discovered what the large announcement from Oculus is, which was shared on stage at The Recreation Awards in Los Angeles tonight.

The announcement wasn’t about when the Rift can be out there (or how a lot it’s going to value), so we’re caught with the “Q1 of 2016,” timeframe for now.

Nevertheless, 23-yr-previous Oculus founder and Rift inventor Luckey did announce a new made-for-VR recreation referred to as Rock Band VR in partnership with Harmonix throughout a enjoyable vignette with DragonForce and a few temporary stage time. It’ll be obtainable early 2016, Luckey stated.

And the trailer:

Should you’re accustomed to the Rock Band collection, you possibly can think about what Oculus and Harmonix have cooked up. You’ll be experiencing playing an instrument from the attitude of a member of the band…however the few seconds of gameplay proven within the trailer seems fairly rattling superior and immersive.

“Searching on the crowd and feeling such as you actually are a rock star is an unimaginable expertise.” Luckey stated.

Throughout his time on stage, Luckey stated that the 2 groups labored on this for fairly some time, and that there can be this and different titles out there at Rift’s launch, every time that is perhaps. For now, Rock Band VR is a strong sufficient flagship expertise to make me say “Take. My. Cash. Oculus.” I don’t care if I appear to be an asshole playing it.
