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

The Twilight Zone VR
Face your fears in a disturbing and mind-bending series of adventures...all taking place within The Twilight Zone™. In story one, CHARACTER BUILDING, a video game director discovers that workplace cruelty is a dangerous game. Story two, TERROR FIRMA, plunges you into an environmental apocalypse, where one survivor must face mysterious phantoms as he searches the city ruins for a glimmer of Hope. And in story three, DEADLINE EARTH, the clock is ticking for a science fiction writer who finds himself captive on an insidious alien vessel. The Twilight Zone VR features elements of stealth, shooting, escape mechanics and eye-popping visuals.

Players can sing along in Multiplayer to the sparkling electro-pop of Finesu’s “On My Way”, or ride the ambient breaks between the dubstep drops of Skybreak’s “Stardust.” These tracks also add depth to the game’s pool of content-creator friendly music. Find the new songs in-game inside of the Ninety9Lives pack.
