Best Oculus Rift games set to launch this month

The library of Oculus Rift games continues to grow each month, both on the Oculus Store and on Steam. There are some truly great titles already available, but to help you decide what to save up for or just to give you something to look forward to, here are the Rift games expected to be coming in August 2018.

My No. 1 pick for this month

Here's what I'm most excited to play this month on Oculus Rift.


Mystery and thriller games translate well to VR, no doubt due to the fact that you really feel like you're there traipsing around a dusty mansion in search of clues. Add a bit of science-fiction to the mix — including a gravity tool that lets you move around large objects as you solve puzzles — and you get Torn, the upcoming game from developer Aspyr. Though there's not yet a definitive date for release from the Oculus Store, Torn is expected to be released August 28 on Steam. Whether or not that date stands up is yet to be seen, but we should get our hands on this new mystery sometime soon.
