Here are the games coming to the Oculus Quest

Can’t wait to see people fail at Dance Central VR.

It’s been six months since Oculus announced the standalone Quest VR headset, giving the provisional release date as “Spring 2019.” Well, spring has sprung, so they say, and the VR headset is still a virtual no-show.

Just as PAX East 2019 started, Oculus dropped a few game announcements, along with a “sizzle reel” of other content coming to the platform.

The cool thing about the game announcements? They’ll both be coming to the Oculus Quest standalone headset and the more powerful Oculus Rift S which needs a PC to power it. Oculus has been working closely with the developers to bring as many of the Rift’s hits to the Quest.

That list includes SUPERHOT VR, which puts the seminal SUPERHOT onto a platform that virtually feels tailor-made for the game. Also included, Space Pirate Trainer, where the lack of wires on the Quest headset should be an advantage to the shooter that calls for nimble feet and even more nimble trigger fingers.

A big addition to the platform comes in the form of Xbox 360-era hit Dance Central as it is being resurrected in the form of Dance Central VR. From everyone’s favorite rhythm game developer, Harmonix, the new dance-till-you-drop game has a new twist other than the VR setting – synchronous multiplayer. Now, you can dance battle your friends, in real time. I can’t wait to see this being broadcast on Twitch while using the new Squad Stream functionality, especially if they manage to incorporate mixed reality video.

Just before we go to the full list of known games, feast your eyes on the awesomeness that is Vader Immortal, the ILMxLAB-produced three-part Star Wars series that’s coming to the Oculus Quest (and presumably the Rift S as well).
