Oculus Touch Games In The Pipeline
In addition to the launch titles for the Oculus Touch, Oculus also revealed several more games designed for the motion controllers that will be added to the Oculus Store next year. These games are Arktika.1, Giant Cop: Justice Above All, Lone Echo and Robo Recall.
What The Oculus Touch Means For The Oculus Rift
The release of the Oculus Touch motion controllers means much more than just the addition of accessories to the Oculus Rift, as it could be viewed as a relaunch of the virtual reality headset.
The addition of the Oculus Touch will add a new dimension for gameplay on the Oculus Rift, placing it in line with rivals HTC Vive and PlayStation VR which both feature wireless motion controllers. When the Oculus Rift was released in March, it instead came with an Xbox One controller instead of the Oculus Touch due to production issues.
With the release of the Oculus Touch and the introduction of the Asynchronous Spacewarp feature to make the Oculus Rift compatible with PCs costing as low as $500, Oculus is hoping that more customers will finally make the jump into virtual reality.
