“This incredible lineup represents years of work from a global community of developers who are pioneering the future of VR,” the company stated at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco as they talked about the Oculus Rift. They continued, “These games take you to the outer reaches of space, mysterious labyrinths of wonder, and fantastic worlds of adventure. And they’re just the beginning. We’re working with thousands of developers on entirely new VR experiences. There are over a hundred more games coming to Oculus this year.’
Along with their statements, they have also revealed how players will be able to navigate with the various videogame titles and apps. They have designed Home from the ground up to be fully-immersive for virtual reality. This feature has evolved significantly since its release on the Gear VR platform.
