It’s been just shy of two months since we kicked off the Summer of Rift Sale, and the momentum of game launches, announcements, and esports events continues. By popular demand, what started out as a six-week seasonal promotion was extended by two weeks. Today, we’re excited to share that VR newcomers have all Labor Day Weekend to take the plunge before the sale officially ends at 11:59 pm PT on September 4.
End of Summer Flash Sale
We’ve said from the beginning that Summer of Rift is all about celebrating the VR community. That’s why we’re also kicking off a huge flash sale on the Oculus Store, with 45 titles across Rift and Gear VR available for up to 50% off—now through 11:59 pm PT on September 4.
We gave a sneak preview of the Oculus Store sale on August 30, temporarily lowering the price of Star Trek: Bridge Crew to $24.99. Whether you want to step aboard the original Enterprise or enter the world of the J.J. Abrams reboot, you can form a crew of up to four players to explore, strategize, and coordinate your efforts to successfully complete your mission.
The Rift sale includes a wide range of apps and experiences, from the productivity and convenience of Virtual Desktop and the moving educational experience of Chernobyl VR Project to the exploratory cyberpunk adventure of TECHNOLUST and beyond, there’s something for everyone.
Gear VR Gems
The flash sale continues on the mobile side, with a similarly dynamic selection of discounted titles on Gear VR. Go on an aquatic safari with Ocean Rift, or battle the zombie horde in fan-favorite Drop Dead. Whether you want to dive into a narrative puzzle-based adventure like Esper 2, have some couch co-op fun with Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, or explore the world of virtual tabletop gaming with RTS Tactera, there’s a lot of great content to round out your library.
Also through 11:59 pm PT on September 4, we’ve got two amazing bundles with significant savings.
