Earlier this month, Oculus announced that every Oculus pre-order will come with a copy of Eve:Valkyrie. Now Oculus is stepping it up even further with the announcement that Lucky’s Tale will be included free with every Oculus Rift.
Lucky’s Tale is an Oculus exclusive made by the folks at Playful and distributed as an Oculus Studios title. In what can be described as a made-for-VR adventure game, users pilot Lucky the fun-loving fox through beautiful worlds and environments. Lucky runs, jumps, climbs, and even spins his way through challenges, all while collecting shiny objects along the way.
“We always believed there was an opportunity for platformers in VR, but it wasn’t until playing Lucky’s Tale and working with the Playful team that we truly realized its potential to change how people view this genre of gaming forever. Lucky’s Tale delivers on everything you want in a next-generation VR game – it’s thrilling, full of adventure, and incredibly fun to play.” — Palmer Luckey
Playful is a true VR pioneering game company. Paul Bettner, the founder and CEO, was one of the original $5,000 backers of the Oculus Rift Kickstarter, which included a visit to Oculus HQ. Playful has worked on dozens of game prototypes for the Rift over the past three years, but Lucky’s Tale will definitely be a unique title that users of all ages will love.
Lucky’s Tale will come bundled exclusively with the Oculus Rift when it ships in Q1 of 2016.
