The two primary PC based VR platforms today are the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vice. One of the biggest differences between the two at launch was that the Vive included controls for your hands, while the Oculus Rift did not. However, the Oculus is on the verge of catching up. Today, the Oculus Touch controls were officially announced, and while the controls will be exciting, what really interesting, is what you'll be able to do with them.

The Oculus Connect 3 event was held today and among many, many other things, they showed off three game trailers for titles that will be released within the launch window of the Touch controls. This will bring first person shooters to the Rift, and give you a real experience like firing a gun. All three titles look amazing and we have to assume they will be even more impressive in an actual VR experience. Check them out.


Arktika.1 comes from the developers of the Metro game series. Like those titles, the game shows a post-apocalyptic Russia as its setting. In addition, the title looks to take place primarily underground. We would actually consider this to be a potential sequel in the series, thought the trailer tells us that this is a new vision of the apocalypse. The game shows customizable weapons which lead to a variety of different attacks against the various enemies. One of the difficult things these sorts of games could run into is being too repetitive, yet Arktika.1 certainly looks to give you enough differences in the combat to keep things interesting.
