This week the folks at NVIDIA have high-fived a set of VR games that, combined, make a radical VR collection for the GTX 1080 Ti and Oculus Rift. Bundles exist that begin with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/GTX 1080/1070/1060 graphics card, system, or laptop and roll with an Oculus Rift + Oculus Touch. For those looking for the most insane “you’ve graduated school, now it’s time to leave the real world” gift, this is it.
With a purchase of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/GTX 1080/1070/1060 graphics card, system, or laptop and an Oculus Rift + Oculus Touch, users will get three VR games. These games are above and beyond what was available with the first wave of VR releases. We’re well into the arena of made-for-VR games that make these three forces to be reckoned with.
The bundle includes The Unspoken, Wilson’s Heart, and SUPERHOT VR. The first game comes from Insomniac Games, the same folks who made the classic Xbox One game Sunset Overdrive. They’ve made The Unspoken, a game which allows the user to duel with magic in an alternate-reality Chicago. This game requires Oculus Touch, and includes a bunch of destructible bits and pieces!
I’ve personally played an early version of the second game, Wilson’s Heart. Earlier this year at CES 2017, NVIDIA slapped an Oculus Rift on my head and dropped me into this game. It’s as freakishly intriguing as it is engaging – you’ll NEED to solve the mystery at hand.
Then there’s SUPERHOT VR. This game looked and felt like it was designed for VR when it was first released for desktop machines. Now it’s there, and it’s a fantastic vision of gameplay that’s unlike anything we’ve played before. It’s like living in bullet time.
In summation: if you were waiting on buying an Oculus Rift and a brand new graphics card, now’s the time. If you buy an Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti/GTX 1080/1070/1060 graphics card, system, or laptop, you get three of the most engaging VR games in the universe for free. Make with the tapping and the trigger-pulling.
