List of existing/upcoming games with Oculus Rift support

A place to talk about Oculus-ready games and demos that can be used with the Rift development kit.

List of existing/upcoming games with Oculus Rift support

Postby Dexter111 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 4:24 am

Hey, I’ve been scouring the web for all full games (past, present and upcoming) I could find and verify that will have Oculus Rift support, because the information wasn’t easily available anywhere in a near-to-complete form and came up with this updated list:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_with_Oculus_Rift_support

There were a bunch of lists already, but most of them either included a lot of the Demos released so far or functionality with 3rd party drivers, but none just had the games with native Oculus Rift support.

Regarding the fields that can be sorted by, “VR support” basically relies on if the games are already playable in VR or not:
Available – Indicates that either the full game or a Beta/Alpha is already playable in VR with the Oculus Rift
Confirmed – Indicates that the developer has announced Oculus Rift support will be integrated in the future
Planned – Indicates that the developer strongly hinted at Oculus Rift support

In the case of the “Confirmed” status, developers have already announced that there will be Oculus Rift support, for instance see the latest Announcement for EVE Valkyrie, Hawken, Routine and similar:
http://uk.ign.com/articles/2013/08/20/eve-valkyrie-oculus-rifts-space-dogfighting-game
http://www.joystiq.com/2012/08/27/hawken-will-support-oculus-rift-when-it-launches-december-12/
http://www.flesheatingzipper.com/gaming/2012/10/new-sci-fi-horror-game-routine-digs-the-eighties-oculus-rift-support/

In the case of the “Planned” status, developers have strongly hinted at the possibility of their games being playable with the Rift but haven’t confirmed or committed to anything yet, like for instance the recent Titanfall, Everquest Next or Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 News:
http://www.gamespot.com/news/titanfall-could-add-support-for-oculus-rift-6411899
http://www.nowgamer.com/news/2033933/everquest_next_video_teases_landmark_oculus_rift.html
http://www.polygon.com/2013/7/9/4506470/castlevania-lords-of-shadow-2-pictured-with-oculus-rift-compatibility

There are also quite a few games that are in a Crowd funding campaign on either KickStarter or Indiegogo also listed at the moment and depending on the funds their status might change.

The “Game development status” should be obvious and isn’t tied to VR support. A lot of the already playable games are still in development in Open or Closed Alpha and Beta phases.

It would be great if this could be kept updated to have a quick look at when new games are being announced/cancelled or come out, release dates are set or older games confirm that they’ll support the Rift.

Feel free to correct any errors there might still be and add any existing/upcoming full games I might’ve missed.

You can also use this thread for any new game Announcements that might come up.

Oh yes and before I forget there is also a list of upcoming games with Oculus Rift support on Steam Greenlight with games that could use a few votes to be allowed onto the platform, although the owner of that group hasn’t updated it in a few weeks: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=92979040

That's a great list for finding short Tech Demos, along with:
http://www.theriftlist.com/ and
http://stv.re/
They seem rather bad for filtering for full released titles and there aren't many upcoming ones listed there.

Thanks, that was rather useful. I added most of the stuff that I could verify from there to the Wiki list. Some of it is old or outright wrong information though.

By the way, there's apparently also a new French site that has a list of Oculus games and demos, but it doesn't keep the full games apart from the various demos either: http://www.entertherift.fr/gamecenter/en/fulllist.php

Ah, can you point out specific things ? I try to keep everything up to date but from time to time some infos could slip under my radar.

Asylum never made the KickStarter stretch goal: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/agustincordes/asylum-kickstart-the-horror
Kung Fu Superstar never got funded, future is highly uncertain: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kostaszarifis/kung-fu-superstar-become-the-ultimate-martial-arts/posts/362855
Cosmic Rift has been renamed to Star Rift and you’ve got both listed, EVE Valkyrie/EVR also listed double.
Sinful Robot has been renamed Wicked Paradise: http://www.gamepolitics.com/2013/06/17/sinful-robot-renamed-wicked-paradise
Things like VR Tennis/Table Tennis prototypes being listed as upcoming game projects when the only Source is a Post from almost a year ago on MTBS: http://www.mtbs3d.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=92497#p92497
Things like Shayd/Wild Skies listed that seem to be Research projects with a full release highly unlikely: http://interactive.usc.edu/project/shayd/
Off-Road Velociraptor Safari was only mentioned once with a YouTube video over 4 months ago and then never again: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=361
Surreal Adventure afaik got cancelled after an impressive KickStarter failure: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/surreal/surreal-adventures
Project Awakened has been put on indefinite hold after the failed KickStarter: http://www.projectawakened.com/
Portal has been disabled by Valve retroactively: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=1642

Stuff like that. :) Also check the updated Wiki list for a lot of games/projects you haven't listed at all.

Ah yes, thanks. I started that Wiki a long time ago and wanted to reference everything available, but now that there's a lot of content available I should remove uncertain projects and not add Kickstarter ones until they attain their goal. I've had a hard time keeping up with everything (especially Kickstarter) so it's probably a good time now to focus on what is really important.

There's to much clutter over at riftenabled.com ...ale the VORPx games that might never get released, all the hearsay about different games that are meant to be supported in the future. I collected almost all demos that come out for Rift but don't use that website at all.

I think some new website is needed to get a good list of available games and demos. The Wiki format is not well suited for this, and the Rift List and RiftEnabled initiatives give too much place to stereo drivers. Something like the Web version of Steam with a good search engine (like GameRankings) could be a good direction.

Freds & Przecinek
There are several ways to sort content, I would suggest going through the list of demos with native Oculus support if you don't want to see the ones supported by drivers:
http://www.riftenabled.com/admin/apps/feature/1

I might add a simpler tile view - and sidebar links to specific features in the future - but it might be a little silly for me to waste time on it if Share takes off.

The search engine is a nice feature but I don't understand why it's not on by default. I don't think it's a good idea to have native games in the same database than the ones supported by stereo drivers. It made sense for S3D when there's been only a handful of "native" games (3D Vision Ready), but I think it makes no sense at all for the Rift.

Yeah I can understand it's very time consuming to enhance your site, even more when Oculus Share or VirtualReality.io are available. But I still think something more comparable to the Steam Web interface is needed. No idea if Oculus Share will go that route though, but I think it'll have a hard time getting as much content as on your site, especially if only the original developers can submit games.
