A bit light this week, but still worth kicking off the weekend with some new content. You can live inside a painting, experience battle from within a tank, and explore the enigmatic landscapes of Obduction, a new experience from the creators of Myst. There is also BlazeBowl, a new game mode for BlazeRush where you can take to the field with friends for some dynamic American football with cars and explosions!
Get ready to snap in your phone scouts!
This Week’s New Gear VR and Oculus Rift Content (11/5/16)
Obduction ($29.99 – Rift)
As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. The worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets only as you explore, coax, and consider them. And as you bask in the otherworldly beauty and explore the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences. From Cyan, the studio that brought you Myst and Riven.
BlazeRush’s BlazeBowl ($9.99 – Rift)
Blazebowl is a new free add-on available now for BlazeRush, the dynamic arcade racing survival game! Assemble a team of friends on the BlazeBowl football field, develop your own tactics and lead your team to victory. Pass the ball to each other, use feints, shoot and explode — do everything to score a goal!
Panzer Panic ($4.99 – Gear VR)
The Battle is on! Face off against your friends in thrilling multiplayer panzer battles for supremacy! Defend your base against attacking tanks and destroy your enemies in breathtaking firefights.
