At OC6 today, we gave you a first look at the latest and greatest games coming to Oculus Quest and the Rift Platform. From titles that break ground with never-before-seen narratives in VR, to games set in breathtaking open worlds, to brand-new updates to titles that have earned a cult following within the community, Quest and the Rift Platform continue to push VR gaming onward and upward.
Here’s a rundown of today’s content-related announcements:
Two years ago at OC4, we announced a landmark partnership between Oculus Studios and Respawn Entertainment, the creators of hit games like Titanfall™, Apex Legends™, and the upcoming Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order™. Since then, the team at Respawn has been working tirelessly to maximize the creative potential of VR and build something incredible—a game that takes us into the future of VR gaming and plays to the strengths of where some of Respawn’s acclaimed developers first started in game development. Today, we’re thrilled to reveal Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond. In addition to both a full narrative campaign and multiplayer modes, Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond includes a unique story gallery, letting you sit with WWII veterans and survivors to hear their stories while witnessing first-hand the events and locations that have shaped our history.

Launching 2020 on the Rift Platform.
ILMxLAB took the stage at OC5 to announce Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode I, an Emmy-nominated adventure that dropped players into the Star Wars universe. And today at OC6, they joined us again to announce that Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode II is launching today on Oculus Quest and the Rift Platform. In Episode II, players return to Mustafar to learn the ways of the Force—including new powers and lightsaber skills—from the legendary Sith Lord himself. Click here to learn more.

The beautiful, ever-changing open world of Stormland will launch on November 14. This VR action-adventure title transforms you from a peaceful android gardener into a heroic fighter journeying through a constantly evolving cloudscape to save your friends and reclaim your world.
Earn your place among the gods and prove your mettle in this Norse-inspired action adventure. Use your powers to complete Loki’s tests of worthiness by helping preordained Heroes of the Realms fulfill their destinies. RPG fans who have been looking for a meaty VR fantasy game need look no further. With over 40 hours of gameplay, Asgard’s Wrath is a worthy addition to your collection.
Pre-order now for an exclusive sword and shield inspired by the Valkyrie warriors that control the battle arenas throughout the game. Players can go there to test their combat skills and be rewarded with crafting materials.
Launching October 10 on the Rift Platform. Pre-orders open now.
Today, the team behind wildly successful Beat Saber demoed new 360° tracks composed by Beat Saber OG music-maker Jaroslav Beck and confirmed that 360° tracks are coming to Quest this December. They also unveiled a new music pack from Panic! At The Disco featuring “The Greatest Show” and more! Clear your play spaces and start stretching—Beat Saber is about to turn your world around.
Panic! At The Disco Music Pack launching next week on Oculus Quest and the Rift Platform.
Previously available on the Rift Platform, this wildly popular title that spawned competitive leagues and fierce friendships launches later this year on Oculus Quest! Team up with more people with cross-play support on the Rift Platform. There are more ways to play with added AI support, so you can play full matches with friends or solo to work on your skills. New Comfort and Safety Tools feature additional options like Ghosting, which can be done individually or to an entire lobby. Ghosted players will have their audio muted and appear as gray CubeSats that disappear when they get too close. Improved player onboarding gives people better control over their environment and who they interact with for a better social experience than ever before.
Launching later this year on Oculus Quest.
Gamers have a ton to look forward, with more than 100 titles slated to launch by end of this year and more coming in 2020. Today we teased a few, like The Room VR: A Dark Matter, the fifth entry in the mysterious puzzler series, launching next year on Quest, and Last Labyrinth, an escape-the-room adventure tale that can only be experienced in VR—coming soon to both Quest and the Rift Platform.
And there’s Pistol Whip, a cinematic bullet hell from Cloudhead Games. With explosive action sequences, an EDM soundtrack featuring artists from Kannibalen Records, and a no-holds-barred attitude, this is one rhythm game that’s breaking the mold—and it’s coming to Quest and the Rift Platform November 7.
From AAA games and Hollywood franchises to breakout indie hits, there’s something for everyone on the Oculus Platform. And with the new additions coming to the Rift Platform and Oculus Quest content lineups, there’s never been a better time to jump in and play.
We’ll see you on the leaderboards.
