10 Steam VR Vive Games We Confirmed Work With Oculus Rift And Touch

by David Jagneaux • December 1st, 2016

One of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind regarding the Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch is whether or not it will work with many of the biggest and best Steam VR titles that were previously marketed as Vive-only. While the concept of an “exclusive” is fluid and up for interpretation in the VR industry since the same PCs power both headsets, the storefronts and interface options are different. Just because Steam will recognize your Rift, Touch controllers, and sensors, doesn’t mean that all of the motion controller games will work flawlessly.

That said, in addition to the 53 games Oculus Home will have for new Touch owners on Dec. 6th, many of the games avaialble on Steam do work on Touch, even if Oculus Rift support isn’t officially listed under Steam’s ‘VR Support’ category on the game’s Steam page.

We’ve seen footage of developers and other people playing games like Hover Junkers using the Oculus Touch, and the controllers have been officially supported in Steam since this summer, far ahead of the Oculus Touch launch next week on Dec. 6th. What you’ll find below is a list of some of the top Steam VR games we’ve confirmed with our own eyes and hands work with Rift and Touch — all of which were previously only supported by the HTC Vive, according to their Steam pages.

Due to embargo, we can’t talk yet about the specifics of using the controller, what worked well and what felt off, or tips outside of the publicly available Touch room-scale setup guide that we published yesterday. Also note that just because a game is not on this list does not mean that it doesn’t work — it may just mean we didn’t get around to confirming for ourselves that it worked.
