The developer recently confirmed that its Quest launch title will arrive on Rift on June 18th. That’s tomorrow! Journey of the Gods is an Oculus Studios title, meaning Oculus funded and published the project. As such, you can expect full cross-buy support with Oculus Quest. That means if you’ve already bought the game on Quest, you’ll be able to download it for free on Rift and vice versa.

Journey of the Gods is a Zelda-like VR adventure game. You travel across a fantastical landscape, doing battle with evil monsters using a sword and shield. Beating bosses bestows you new god-like powers that turn levels into diorama-sized sets, allowing you to throw lighting and manipulate vegetation.
On Quest the game costs $29.99, which is what it’ll cost on Rift too. We haven’t gotten to a full review of Journey of the Gods yet, but we’ve enjoyed what we’ve played. It’s colorful and innocent with some great combat and hours worth of content. It’s not ground-breaking but, for a lot of VR fans, that’s just what the doctor ordered.
Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for Turtle Rock’s other Quest game, Face Your Fears II, to hit Rift. The original title did jump from Go to PC, so we have hopes this will too.
