Oculus Rift is almost here, bringing true Virtual Reality to people around the world for the first time.
The headset is going to revolutionise how we interact with our world of entertainment and offers amazing opportunities for live 360 degree videos, movies, photos and business applications including medicine and industry.
Still perhaps the most obviously exciting potential of the technology is how it can be used for video games – immersing players directly into digital worlds and allowing them to move around and interact in three dimensions like never before.
With a fast refresh rate and high resolution for each eye, the Rift is going to change gaming forever and now we’ve got an idea of the kind of experiences we can look forward to once the headset launches. Here are the first titles coming to Oculus Rift.
There’s something for everyone here, including dog fighting in space, exploring huge mountains, figuring out puzzles, racing against other players and wandering the depths of a strange dungeon. It’s great to see different ideas of how to use VR, rather than just throwing players into first persons scenarios, and it’s going to be fascinating to see just how the world of gaming evolves as the technology becomes more widespread.
We’re really looking forward to feeling very uncomfortable in The Climb!
The Oculus Rift will be available at Harvey Norman soon.
