With just one more month still to follow before we see in the year 2020, the Oculus Quest is steadily growing its library of games, and it has already smashed through its promise of 100 games on the Quest by the end of the year. Over the past week we’ve seen a number of games pop up on its ‘Coming Soon’ page, along with confirmed release dates.
Over the next few weeks we have six highly anticipated Oculus Quest titles coming to the standalone headset. Looking at some of the dates and their days of the week, Oculus is breaking its usual Thursday release date in order to bolster its library of titles to incentivise the Oculus Quest as a top selling headset for this coming holiday season.
Below are each of the six games in order or release date.
The Under Presents
Releases: November 19th (Tuesday)
From the creators of Virtual Virtual Reality, The Under Presents a time and mind bending theatrical adventure, where live immersive theater meets VR to bring live actors into your living room.
The game promises to bring an intriguing experience set between two worlds: a jaunty vaudeville stage and the harrowing survival narrative. Players uncover the story of a ship stranded in time as supplies dwindle and day-by-day an otherworldly mist rolls closer. Follow characters’ interlocking fates as all journeys forward must turn back or become lost.
Vader Immortal: Episode III
Releases: November 21st (Thursday)
The third and final episode of Vader Immortal series will be coming to an end at the tail end of this month. Fans who have already played through the first two episodes will have to pay up once more and get the opportunity to fight against Vader himself in a battle against the Sith Lord.
You’ll have to remember everything Vader has taught you in previous episodes to get yourself through Episode III. It has also been rumoured that this time you’ll also be able to pick up dropped blasters from Storm Troopers and return fire with them. A rumour I really hope is true, along with the rumour that it will be longer than Episode I.
A Fishermans Tail
Releases: November 27th (Wednesday)
Bend and twist reality in A Fisherman’s Tale, the mind-bending VR puzzle adventure in which being turned upside down and inside out is not merely a play on words.
You play as Bob, a tiny fisherman puppet, you live alone in your tiny cabin, oblivious to the world outside. When your radio broadcasts a storm alert, you have to climb the lighthouse to turn on the light! As you leave your cabin with the help of some uncanny sidekicks, you realize what’s waiting outside is not at all what you expected…
Releases: December 3rd (Tuesday)
Feel the exhilaration of extreme free solo climbing. Experience the adrenaline rush as you ascend to epic heights, explore caves, and find shortcuts. Race against your friends’ routes to compete for the fastest times on leaderboards. Navigate and enjoy stunning landscapes from around the world, including the Alps, Southeast Asia, and the American Southwest.
The Climb has been previously promised as a launch title for the Quest, but sadly the game soon went dark as it was expected that the game wasn’t living up expectations. Having been in further development for a number of months now, having viewed the new Quest footage in the trailer above, The Climb is now looking to become one of the best looking games on the Oculus Quest, next to games such as Red Matter.
Releases: December 5th (Thursday)
