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

Resident Evil™ 4
Over here, stranger! Whether it’s your first trip through Resident Evil 4 or your tenth, get ready to experience this survival horror classic from a whole new (first-person) perspective. Step into Leon S. Kennedy’s shoes and embark on a mission to save the president’s daughter from a mysterious cult. Stranded in a rural European village, you’ll have to fend off the hostile locals, Los Ganados, as you slowly uncover a sweeping conspiracy. Oculus Studios and Armature Studio partnered to reimagine Capcom’s classic for VR—so get ready to frantically fumble shells into a shotgun while Ganados break through the windows.

Feel the crisp winter air against your face as you pound the drums, fast and brutal, in Ragnarock. A one-of-a-kind rhythm game, we fell in love with Ragnarock’s App Lab release a few months back. Now the full version is out on the Oculus Store, bringing Viking-themed drumming and a high-energy folk-metal soundtrack to the masses. Smash the drums in-time with the music from your perch at the back of the longship, keep your crew’s morale high, and try to make it as far down the river as possible. During the slow sections you might even have time to admire the landscape a bit.
