Since announcing the Summer of Rift, we launched The Mage’s Tale, hosted Echo Arena’s first open beta weekend, and went behind the scenes in an exclusive interview with inXile Entertainment and Insomniac Games. Today, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the red-hot action coming down the pike, from esports events to blistering hot game reveals you won’t want to miss.

Echo Arena’s Second Open Beta
Mark your calendars: Zero-g competition returns as we kick off Echo Arena’s second—and final—open beta weekend July 6 – 10!

This is a great opportunity to log some practice hours and brush up on our tips and tricks before the game’s official release on July 20.

E3 Accolades
Speaking of Echo Arena, congratulations to developer Ready At Dawn on taking home the Game Critics Awards’ Best VR Game of E3 2017!

You can also score Ready At Dawn’s narrative-driven space adventure, Lone Echo at a special promotional price—pre-order now and save.

Multiplayer Mayhem
We’re excited to share that one of our favorite titles has a free multiplayer weekend coming up!

The Unspoken, July 7 – 12
Dive into The Unspoken’s urban magic fight club and cast spells with your own hands. This is a fan favorite at gaming events, and fresh off its national esports debut, there’s never been a better time to get in on the VR magic.

We’ll host more free multiplayer weekends as Summer of Rift continues, so keep an eye on the blog for announcements!

More to Come
Stay tuned for even more Summer of Rift action. With multiple game launches and updates from Dragon Front, Facebook Spaces, and Medium to the launch of the VR Challenger League and beyond, we’ve got a ton of reasons for the season.
