This means that we will be seeing some updates on games like Pistol Whip, Lone Echo II, and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. Personally, I am pretty stoked at the Lone Echo II news. The first instalment was perhaps the first completely immersive VR game that I tried out years ago. I am looking forward to seeing what the team can do with a game that isn’t free to play.
According to their blog post on the presentation:
“This is our first event wholly dedicated to the stellar games across the Oculus Platform. You can expect new updates to fan-favorite titles, never-before-seen footage from some unreleased games, and a few surprises in store.”
We don’t know any other games that might be showing up at the presentation. With the growing interest around them, there may be a chance that the upcoming Oculus-published Splinter Cell & Assassin’s Creed VR games from Ubisoft may be making an appearance.If you want to check out the presentation yourself, you can tune in on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube in the US and Japan at 3:00 pm PT on April 21.
The VR Today. Currently Virtual Reality is growing in popularity and while companies like the Oculus Rift are losing some of their customers because of unpopular marketing practices, other devices, including the HTC Vive are taking the VR stage. Furthermore, with Google Cardboard creating the concept and other companies taking note, Smartphone Virtual Reality Goggles are letting consumers easily enjoy and experience immersive virtual and augmented reality. With huge consumer base, the multiple platforms for development, and the lack of many VR games and experiences, small start-ups as well as huge companies are investing huge amounts of money into the development of content for Virtual Reality, which might very well help VR finally achieve the world-wide recognition it didn’t manage to achieve on the market for years.
