Oculus are making moves to pull games that will get attention to their VR platform. One of these is ADR1FT, the Gravity like experience which was last heard to be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this month.
Instead, 505 Games and developer, Three One Zero have announced that the first person space exploration game will be arriving in the Q1 of 2016, and feature Oculus Rift support. Said to be hand-selected by Oculus as a premier launch title it will be released on the day the Oculus Rift is released to the public.
“Virtual reality is the next phase of innovation in gaming,” said Ian Howe, President of 505 Games. “As a publisher, we’re always looking for the best platforms and technology to showcase our games and working with Oculus will allow gamers to experience ADR1FT in an enhanced way that only can be done through the immersion of virtual reality.”
We couldn’t be more pleased to work directly with the Oculus team to bring ADR1FT to the Oculus Rift,” said Adam Orth, Creative Director of Three One Zero. “The excitement we’ve seen from our fans around ADR1FT VR and the groundbreaking technology of the Oculus Rift is a special combination; short of actually being in space, this is the best way to experience zero gravity.”
Adr1ft will be released onto Steam in the first quarter of 2016, and be for the Oculus platform. Additional SKUS and gaming platforms will be announced in the future.
With the delay of the release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this is bound to create some annoyance to people who have been looking forward to the game, but is it a wise move?
