Fully wireless VR
Virtual worlds come alive
The Oculus Quest brings a new dimension to virtual worlds like never before. With full wireless freedom, there are no strings attached, and now you don't even need controllers thanks to the new hand tracking feature.
I don't know how I feel about this.... If it were a console manufacturer (Nintendo, Sony, MS) or another developer/publisher that would be fine. VR, while gaining market share, is still sort of niche overall.
Their last 3 games were vr. I'm assuming that the direction they wanted to go anyway.
This is terrible news for Playstation fans. I know that they really wanted a sequel to "The Order: 1886."
