However, in the whirlwind of headlines last week, you might have missed some of our meatier pieces that gave a deeper look at the games and services announced. So for your convenience, we’ve summarized and linked our six best hands-on and feature pieces from Oculus Connect 6 below.
Ian tried an early version of Facebook Horizon while at OC6. He also asked Meaghan Fitzgerald, head of product marketing for AR/VR content at Facebook, and Eric Romo, product director at Facebook, some questions about the game. He covered moderation, Facebook integration, hand tracking and much more. It’s probably the best look we’ll get at Horizon before the beta next year.
David was so excited to share his hands-on with Respawn’s new VR Medal of Honor game, and it’s easy to see why. He called it “an authentic and welcome return for the long-forgotten franchise,” and went into great detail about the levels he played, the gun mechanics and some areas he hopes get improved before release.
It was one of the biggest announcements of OC6: finger tracking for Quest. There’s still a lot more to be revealed by Facebook regarding the functionality but Ian played around with a demo last week, and outlined his thoughts on what he saw.
After a long history of mobile games, The Room is coming to VR. David snuck in a quick hands-on with the game while Tatjana talked to Barry Meade, Co-Founder and Director of Fireproof Games, about the upcoming title.
Solaris: Offworld Combat, the next VR Shooter from the Firewall Zero Hour devs was first revealed in our E3 VR Showcase. However, this year during OC6, we shared some exclusive new details about the game, which is coming to Rift and Quest next year, and PSVR at some point after that.
Vader Immortal Episode II released during the first day’s keynote. Thousands of miles away from OC6, Jamie quickly jumped into a full play through of the hotly-anticipated second chapter and gave his thoughts on how it stacks up compared to Episode I.
Those are our biggest hands-on and features pieces from OC6. What are you looking forward to most? Let us know in the comments below.
