It’s that time of year again. Orange and black lights twinkle outside porches, scary ghosts and ghouls litters front yards, and bowls of candy are amassing wealth near the front door of houses around the world as families prepare for Halloween 2016. Notably, this is also the first Halloween during the age of consumer-grade VR headsets, which means it’s time for holiday game bundles.
Today, Oculus announced that you can purchase a Halloween Bundle of apps on the Gear VR for the low price of $8.99. This comes in at just around 70% off the full price ($28.95) of the five included games and apps in the bundle.
As you can see, the single purchase nets you Wands [Review: 7/10,] Affected: The Manor [Review: 7/10,] Dark Days [Review: 7/10,] Dead Secret, and Sonar. Luckily, this is a really strong collection of content. Both Affected and Dark Days made our list of the best VR horror games to check out this Halloween, and those two, plus Wands, also made our list of the overall best games on Gear VR right now.
Affected is the most traditional experience in the bunch, offering quick and thrilling scares, whereas Dark Days is a much longer, narrative-focused puzzles adventure game. Dead Secret is a mystery thriller with spooky atmosphere and Sonar isn’t so much a game as it is an immersive experience. Finally, Wands, isn’t really a horror game at all, but it does offer intense magic duels if you can find anyone to play with.
Oculus is no stranger to sales and it’s great to see them embracing seasonal price changes like this. As the Gear VR and Rift ecosystems continue to expand, users will eventually start to miss out on certain titles, especially since so many new experiences release each and every week.
