Several Oculus VR headsets had been out of stock for the past few months amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, but now it looks like the Oculus Quest untethered VR headset is available on Oculus’ website.
What is Oculus Quest?
Oculus Quest is a lower-powered self-contained VR headset, but it still has the ability to connect to a PC to play high-end VR games. Oculus website stock has both the 64GB and 128GB models.
Along with the restocking of the Oculus Quest VR headsets, the company has handpicked four games for its consumers. Those games are The Climb, Pistol Whip, Racket Fury, and Thrill of the Fight.
The Climb features free solo climbing to explore caves and find shortcuts. The player can play against their friends to compete for the fastest times on leaderboards. The game also comes with a Tourist Mode which will help the players climb with simplified mechanics. This is priced at $29.99.
Pistol Whip is an action game that takes the players into action scenes. Some of the features include paired pulse-pounding pace of an FPS with the flow-state energy of a music game in a cinematic symphony of violence, the freedom to choose their own rhythms, infiltrating a fever dream of hand-crafted scenes, from bank heists to Android uprisings, each uniquely designed to music. It features EDM artists from Kannibalen Records, including Apashe, HVDES, and Black Tiger Sex Machine. This is priced at $24.99.
Racket Fury is a table-tennis VR game that features a singleplayer campaign set against 16 opponents. It comes in two modes, Arcade and Simulation modes with 5 different sceneries. To deliver the most realistic characters’ movements, Oculus relied upon motion capture data for their animations. This game is priced at $19.99.
The Thrill of the Fight
The Thrill of the Fight is a boxing game that gives an almost realistic boxing match experience. However, some requirements are needed for playing this game like the play area size needs to be 6.5ft by 6.5ft. The game is available for purchase at $9.99.
