Oculus announced late last week that, starting on November 20th, new Quest 2 owners would be able to download the award-winning PC VR title Asgard’s Wrath (2019) for free until January 31st, 2021. Following public outcry from early customers who were inexplicably locked out of the promotion, Oculus has now extended the offer to Quest 2 users who purchased their headset from September 16th onwards.
Update (November 24th, 2020): Following public controversy, Oculus has decided to extend its free offer of PC VR title Asgard’s Wrath to effectively all prior owners of Quest 2, the company’s latest standalone headset.
The company says in a statement that users who purchased Quest 2 between September 16th and November 20th should contact Oculus Support with a PDF containing proof of purchase.
September 16th was the starting pre-order date for Quest 2, so ostensibly everyone who bought a Quest 2 should be able to claim Asgard’s Wrath, provided they activate the headset before January 31st, 2021 and use it with Link via a VR-ready PC. The original article follows below:
Original Article (November 20th, 2020): It’s been one year since Oculus released beta support for Link, the company’s compatibility software that lets Quest users play Rift exclusives on PC. In celebration, the company is giving Quest 2 owners Asgard’s Wrath, the Norse mythology-inspired RPG.
To qualify, you need to activate a Quest 2 for the first time and use it with a Link cable between today (see update) and January 31st, 2021. Make sure to download the Oculus PC app first, and connect your Quest 2 with a USB 3.0 cable or the original Link cable sold by Oculus.
Developed by Sanzaru Games exclusively for the Rift platform, Asgard’s Wrath boasts 30+ hours of first-person combat, dungeoning, and plenty of RPG goodness. Although the game is all about melee, you’ll also find yourself morphing to the size of a god to solve environmental puzzles using any one of your animal companions. Find out why we gave it [8.8/10] in our full review from last year.
Spoiler: we liked it so much we gave it Road to VR’s 2019 Oculus Rift Game of the Year Award.
