What Rift games are coming out in June?

 

The library of Oculus Rift games continues to grow each month, both on the Oculus Store and on Steam. There are some truly great titles already available, but to help you decide what to save up for or just to give you something to look forward to, here are the Oculus Rift Virtual Reality (VR) games confirmed to be coming June 2018.

 

We've also got the information on Steam related releases for the month.

Oculus Rift coming soon

Plenty of games are released each month for most consoles, and this what we've found so far. The Oculus Store, as usual, has some choice options for Virtual Reality (VR) games that are set to release. These are games that are fresh to the "Coming Soon" section of the Oculus Store, check them out!

 

Tvori

Tvori is currently available on the Steam Store for about $20 in early access. This is, by far, the coolest looking game for drawing and creating in VR that I have ever seen. Not only are you able to paint, draw and create, but you can also animate your scenes in real time. The graphics look phenomenal and I absolutely see this being a game I'm going to lose myself for hours in. The amount of different tools we see in the trailer alone has me excited. They don't look too complicated, and it doesn't appear to be that hard to get the hang of.

 

I absolutely recommend following this game for the release. It's perfect for just about anyone, whether you're new to VR or a veteran to the scene. And, with the stamping option of pre-drawn figures, you don't even need to consider yourself an artist to be able to have fun here. Think of it like crafting a new settlement in Fallout, except must more open for free design instead of locked into specific ranges of capability.

 

Drops: Rhythmic Sculpture Garden

I'm actually not even sure how I feel about this one. There is not a single trailer to further elaborate on what this game is going to be other than the description on the Oculus Store. So, from what that says this is a VR game that you're gonna build structures in to play music.

 

From the pictures provided on the website it just looks like a really complicated game of Mouse Trap plus music. I imagine it will have some pretty cool aspects to it, but I really don't see myself getting lost in this game for hours on in. The elaborate design schemes might get boring and tedious to create before it actually gets fun.

 

Even if you go to the Drops website it just gives you a small sneak of how the finished process will work, and you can't even hear a sample of the types of sounds you'll hear.

 

Oculus Rift experiences coming soon

These experiences have been in the "Oculus Rift coming soon" category on their website for over a month. As soon as we have information on their release dates, we'll let you know!

Blind

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now.

 

Blind takes an interesting turn on echolocation. In this title, you are a woman named Jane who has found herself trapped in a manner that really doesn't want her to leave. Throughout this gameplay, you will not only learn her story but the story of the people who used to live there. Both are detrimental to figuring your way out of this nightmare. Put on your headset and get ready for this psychological thriller. Just remember, be careful of how much noise you make... you never know who could be listening.

 

Pixel Ripped 1989

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now.

 

What a day to go back in time. In PIxel Ripped 1989 you'll feel the nostalgia through your bones of what it was like to be a kid again. Jump back into the pixels and defeat the big bosses a few more times, just make sure your teacher doesn't catch you on your game! The way I see it, if you're going to travel through time you might as well do it in style.

 

Carly & the Reaperman: Escape from the Underworld

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now.

 

When you think of a helpful hand in the sky you probably aren't imagining a Reaper there to help you. But, when that sky is actually in the underworld it makes a bit more sense. Here, two friends must work together to control this unlikely duo by solving puzzles and defeating problems to escape. One person controls Carly, a small girl lost in the underworld, and the other controls the reaper who is a surprising help in preventing death.

 

Carly is played with a controller through the screen, much like a usual platform game. The Reaperman is played through your Oculus Headset. So, grab a friend and trade places during gameplay with this amazing title! Steam mentions the game being available to play in June, but you can select the "follow" button on Oculus for release updates!

 

Chemistry Adventures in the Wonder Lab

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now. They have also changed the name from "Structure & Properties of Matter".

 

Bring the love of science to your Oculus Rift with this wonderful title that's bound to give you some chemistry (ha, get it?). In Structure & Properties of Matter, we are all students who are super eager to learn through fun and engaging games and activities! This curriculum was designed by award-winning educators and is aligned to the Next Gen Science Standards.

 

So, if you're looking for a science tutor with a bit of fun, check it out on the Oculus Store!

 

18 Floors

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now.

 

Chances are you've played the infamous 100 Floors: Can you Escape? Well, if you have and you loved it than 18 Floors is going to be the game for you. Instead of having to use a phone to swipe around the scene and see what you can pick up, you can experience one of your favorite puzzle games through VR. This means being able to actually turn your head or carefully make sure you put the puzzle pieces exactly where they are supposed to go.

 

Are you up for this brain sweating challenge?

 

Primordian

This title has been in "coming soon" for months now.

 

Find yourself immersed in a world where sci-fi meets fantasy. In Primordian you fill find yourself fighting for your life against many, many terrifying creatures much larger than you. Here you'll choose a sword or gun and go up against your enemies. Wait, did I mention the magic?

 

Yeah, you're pretty much a one-man army ready to defeat anything that crosses your path... as you should!
