Oculus Touch Ships Next Week
Oculus is preparing more than 50 apps for release alongside the December 6 launch of the Touch controllers, which completes the picture of the Rift originally laid out by Oculus in June of last year. The $200 controllers were originally supposed to launch in the first half of 2016, but Facebook’s VR company delayed the release to make refinements.
Touch complements the $600 Rift with a second tracking sensor to help track the controllers in a larger play area. If you pre-order before December 6, you’ll get magic dueling game The Unspoken ($30) and VR Sports Challenge ($30) for free, in addition to 3D drawing app Quill, sculpting app Medium, and shooting game Dead and Buried, which will continue to be bundled with the controllers after December 6 alongside two demo apps, First Contact and Toybox.
Titans of Space 2 received a major update, seen in this short video, bringing Touch controller support and new comfort features. The tour of the planets and stars is available for $8 on Steam and Oculus.
