Facebook has announced its first Oculus Gaming Showcase, where it will unveil its latest VR games.
The event will be held on April 21 at 3PM PT, and will be streamed live through Twitch, Facebook and YouTube. While we don’t know for sure what will be announced, developers Cloudhead Games (Pistol Whip), Ready At Dawn (Lone Echo 2) and ILMxLAB (Star Wars: Tal4es from the Galaxy’s Edge) are confirmed to be showcasing updates for their game.
This will undoubtedly be our biggest look at new games since the Oculus Quest 2 launched last October. While we’ve had a few good titles, like Jurassic World Aftermath and The Climb 2, and a few less-good ones, like Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, getting a whole event dedicated to upcoming content for the headset will be very much appreciated.
Personally, there are a few things I hope to hear more from at the event. We haven’t seen anything about Ubisoft and Oculus’ Assassin’s Creed or Splinter Cell VR games since they were announced in September, and I can’t think of a better way of closing out the event than seeing Sam Fisher pull his goggles on in VR for the first time.
The Oculus Gaming Showcase begins at 3PM PT (10PM UTC) on Tuesday, April 21.
