Countdown to PAX West: Awesome Demos, Top-Tier Tourneys, Spark AR-Powered Pins, and More

August 16, 2019

We’re two weeks from the Pacific Northwest premiere event by gamers, for gamers. Today, we’re excited to share a sneak peek of what we’ve got in store for this year’s PAX West attendees—including some cool Stormland news.

New for 2019, we’re introducing a series of three limited edition PAX pins with AR effects powered by Facebook’s Spark AR platform. Each pin corresponds to one of our Oculus Studios demo titles:

Also new, we’ll debut Stormland’s multiplayer mode, so you can bound up cliffs, glide across chasms, and wield makeshift weapons as you explore forgotten ruins with friends.

And then you can bring a piece of the action home with you and unlock a new layer of the experience in Booth # 803.

Grab your kayak and steel yourself for life—or death—as an elite special forces operative as nDreams completely reinvents the stealth genre while blowing expectations out of the water in Phantom: Covert Ops. And did we mention that Phantom won Best VR/AR Game in the E3 2019 Game Critics Awards? So this is a great time to get hands-on with it as well as fellow nominees Asgard’s Wrath and Lone Echo II.

You can also spin and slash your way through Beat Saber’s 360° demo originally shown at E3 and get a little nutty with cross-platform multiplayer party game ACRON: Attack of the Squirrels!

Beyond the Booth

Over in the VR Freeplay area, you’ll find a number of VR demos, plus a variety of tournaments. Here’s a look at what to expect, plus a couple talks you won’t want to miss.
