If you’re looking to get in on virtual reality’s ground floor, get ready. Oculus has announced that Rift pre-orders open in just two days.

Before you ask, no. The company still has not revealed how much you can expect to spend on the display. We do know that the Rift includes a tracking camera, Xbox One controller, and Xbox One wireless adapter. 

Those that pre-order will get a copy of dogfighting action game EVE Valkyrie. Every Rift will come with the 3D platformer Lucky’s Tale.

You can pre-order your rift on Oculus’ website at 8 a.m. Pacific / 11 a.m. Eastern. For more on virtual reality, including the Oculus Rift, check out our January issue featuring 52-pages about the hardware and the games.

Our Take
It would be nice if we knew before pre-orders opened how much we’ll be asked to spend. I get that Oculus doesn’t want to tip its hand, but it’s about time we had this important information.
