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

Jurassic World Aftermath: Part 2
For those who already crash-landed on Isla Nublar last year, Jurassic World Aftermath: Part 2 picks up right where its predecessor left off—in the dark. Find out what last year’s cliffhanger ending means for your character, as you traverse an even-more-dangerous Isla Nublar. Escaping will mean uncovering secrets both high and low, first exploring Dr. Henry Wu’s office high above the island and then delving underground to explore a hidden vault beneath the facility. But escape won’t be easy, of course. Expect to pit your wits against the dangerous dinosaurs that now call the ruins home, including Pteranodons and vicious Velociraptors. Stay hidden, and you just might make it off Isla Nublar.

Perfect For: Fans of Jurassic World, Red Matter, and Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife

Sweet Surrender
If you’re looking for a VR shooter to keep you on your toes, then look no further than Sweet Surrender. This roguelike VR shooter from Salmi Games pits players against massive hordes of enemies in a dystopian megatower packed with procedurally-generated levels. As you climb the tower, you’ll unlock a wide array of weapons ranging from guns, explosives, melee weapons, and more, complete with upgrades and unlockable perks to ensure you get stronger and more agile as the tower gets more difficult. Levels are full of secrets too, so make sure to explore, blow up walls for hidden passages, and experiment in combat to find enemy weak points.

Blaston - Quick Draw Update
Saddle up, partner, because this Blaston update is unlike any of the others. The brand new western-themed Quick Draw Update allows Blaston players to duel Wild West style! This is the first seasonal mode introduced to Blaston. Face off in the Greatstone Valley, far away from the city you know and love, and duel each other in old school fashion. Both players use the Deadringer, a legendary skin for the Raptor which in this mode is sped up to replicate a more realistic cowboy duel. When the bell rings, the quickest one to draw and shoot their opponent will be deemed the victor!

Disc Ninja - Rush Mode
Greetings ninjas, and welcome to the first official post-release patch for Disc Ninja. It starts with a brand new way to play the game. Forget patience, precision, and focus—in Rush, all you need is a breakneck speed and a total disregard for any planning whatsoever. The only goal is to reach the dragon first, by any means necessary. Disc Ninja could use a little chaos from time to time. This update also adds a set of Quality of Life improvements under the Tournament Mode umbrella, aimed to ease your organization of matches and better define the rules of play. A couple of clicks, and you're ready to organize your very own Disc Ninja tournaments!

The Zarius Heist also introduces an all-new Specialist, Imperia. A ranger, she wields the Vipera Strike, a famed and highly coveted bow and arrow weapon. Efficient, precise and devastating.
