Earlier this month we reported that Oculus would be bringing the first playable demo of Insomniac Games’ Stormlands to PAX West in Seattle this weekend. That’s not all the company has planned for the event, though.
Rift is also showcasing a handful of apps both old and new at the VR Freeplay area, including Psytec Games’ upcoming Windlands 2 (which has been under wraps since its initial announcement late last year) and new games like Seeking Dawn and Torn. There’s also the usual staples like Echo Arena, Medium, Robo Recall, Sprint Vector, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and The Unspoken. You’ll also be able to play Stormlands at Facebook’s Gaming stand during the show. Oddly, there’s no sign of Marvel: Powers United VR, which is all Oculus took to Gamescom last week.
There’s plenty of talks and tournaments going on throughout the weekend, too. You can catch players facing off in Eagle Flight, Audioshield, Robo Recall and Fruit Ninja VR to name a few. As for the talking, look out for the Futures of Interactive Storytelling and Gaming While Other sessions held by Ubisoft as well as a panel from Killing Floor: Incursion developer Tripwire Interactive.
PAX West kicks off tomorrow and runs through to Monday. Don’t miss out on VR if you’re going.
