Oculus Rift Games Round-Up: Robo Recall, Lone Echo, Arktika.1

Oculus Rift Games Round-Up: Robo Recall, Lone Echo, Arktika.1

Three new Oculus Rift VR games were announced today. Here are the trailers for each of them.

Several new Oculus Rift games were announced at the Oculus Connect 3 developer conference today, the most interesting of which was Robo Recall. Created by Epic Games, it's a VR shooter based on the Bullet Train demo that the developer produced last year.

The game casts you as a Tal Series 9 droid who's on a mission to take out an army of robots that are rampaging through city streets. The action looks slick and pretty humorous, with Tal Series 9 able to pull off a variety of over-the-top executions, combos, and melee moves - including catching bullets and flinging them back at the enemy. It looks pretty entertaining, and the good news is that the game will be free to anyone who owns an Oculus Rift - although you will need to buy Oculus Touch controllers to be able to play the game. Look out for it sometime during Q1 of next year.

Next up is Lone Echo. Developed by The Order 1886 creator Ready at Dawn Studios, it's a sci-fi adventure set in the year 2126 that takes place on a massive interstellar space ship. The crew discovers a mysterious anomaly, and things then start going wrong on the ship, which needless to say, you need to fix. No release date has been announced for Lone Echo as of yet.

Finally, there's Arktika.1, which is brought to you by 4A Games, who produced Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. It's another VR shooter, but this time it's a bit more straight-up serious. The action takes place 100 years into a post-apocalyptic future, and involves you stepping into the shoes of a mercenary who's been hired to protect a Russian colony from a variety of enemies, from bandits to monsters. Like the other games being highlighted here, Arktika.1 requires Oculus Touch controls to play it. The game is set for a Q2 2017 release.
