This week, we released a bunch of titles and updates across the Oculus Platform. Here’s a rundown of the highlights:

I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy and the Liar
So you managed to make it out of I Expect You To Die unscathed, eh? That doesn’t mean your chances have improved for the sequel. Like its predecessor, I Expect You To Die 2 has the feel of a larger-than-life escape room, blending hilarious espionage tropes with ingenious puzzles. Slip into the shoes of a super spy on an international adventure with nothing but your wits (and your telekinetic powers) to save you—and save the entire world. Unravel the evil Dr. Zor’s plans across six new missions—and quickly, before something explodes, lights on fire, crushes you, or otherwise brings your cloak-and-dagger career to an untimely end.
