You might think Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the biggest game reveal of the day. Well, we’re here to tell you you’re wrong; Onward is coming to Oculus Quest!
The port was announced during today’s instalment of the VR League, an esports competition for VR gamers. Downpour Interactive’s Dante Buckley joined the show to confirm the ever-popular VR shooter is coming to Oculus’ standalone headset.

For those that don’t know, Onward is a first-person multiplayer shooter. Initially developed by just Buckley himself, the game favors realistic modern combat. First released for the HTC Vive, it quickly caught people’s attention with its authentic gameplay that, at the time, was unseen in VR.
Buckley didn’t reveal exactly when Onward would be arriving on Quest. We’ll be incredibly excited to see how the game’s tense tactical shootouts translate to the wireless headset. On PC, the game’s still in Early Access and Oculus hasn’t yet launched a pre-release game on its new headset.
This is just the first in what’s sure to be a week of great announcements for VR. Make sure to join UploadVR on Monday when we host the first ever E3 VR Showcase, kicking off at 8:45am PT.

We can’t wait to show you what’s in store – there’s a few more Quest announcements on the way.
