Oculus just announced that a copy of Lucky’s Tale is include with every new purchase of the Rift, their flagship virtual reality headset.
When asked why Oculus included the game with Rift, Palmer Luckey states,
“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.”
Lucky’s Tale allows players to interact with the environment in a third-person point of view, allowing players to feel familiar with their gaming environment, but still having the ability to look around in 360° and feel present in the experience.
This is on the heels of Eve: Valkyrie and their announcement that they will include a copy with every Oculus Rift pre-order.
