Oculus launched its ‘Nightmare on Oculus’ sale across Rift, Go, and Gear VR, with reduced prices on dozens of Halloween themed VR games on the Oculus Store. The sale will last for 7 days, ending next Friday.
As well as the individual game sales, Oculus is also offering four Halloween themed bundles, two for Rift and two for Go/Gear VR – with each containing 3 games.
Best Rift Deals: Arizona Sunshine & Killing Floor Incursion
Both games offer voice-acted singleplayer campaigns and co-operative “horde” multiplayer. While we preferred Arizona Sunshine overall, Killing Floor’s advantage is its satisfying melee weapons, which Arizona Sunshine lacks.
Best Go Deals: Dead Secret & République VR
Dead Secret is one of the most atmospheric and engaging games on mobile VR – a true murder mystery experience in VR set in a remote abandoned house filled with secrets. It is offered at $5.99 (40% off).
République VR [7/10] is an engaging stealth experience that pushes the boundaries on what was graphically possible in mobile VR, with graphics that look almost console quality. It is offered at $4.99 (50% off).
