Oculus have announced they will be offering up to 60% price reductions on over 30 titles across the Oculus Store for the Rift and Gear VR from June 16th until July 5th. In addition, between now and June 24th, customers purchasing a Rift and Touch bundle will receive $100 in Store credit.
Detailed on the official Oculus blog, the ‘Summer of Rift’ comprises more than just a sale – there will be special events, game launches and announcements too. While no specific prices have been revealed, the team are promising bundles for The Unspoken, SUPERHOT VR and The Climb for the Rift and Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, Rangi, and Dark Days for Gear VR. Price cuts to Oculus Touch game Wilson’s Heart and Gear VR’s Anshar Wars are also expected.
It’s a great time to buy Rift and Touch hardware, as the $100 Oculus Store credit could provide newcomers with a serious library from the outset, adding to the bundled titles you get for free, such as Dead and Buried, Medium, and Robo Recall. Amazon is participating in the deal across five territories, plus Best Buy and Newegg in the US, along with FNAC in France, MediaMarkt, Saturn, and Caseking in Germany, and Scan and Game in the UK.
Following a very quiet E3 for the company, let’s hope they’ve been saving up some special reveals to accompany these ‘weeks of activities and promotions’.
