GDC is underway, and Oculus is using the opportunity to make a big splash ahead of the Rift's March 28 launch. The company hosted media days earlier this week, giving us a chance to go hands-on with a number of games (you can read our breakdown of those for more info).
Notably, the launch lineup is coming into focus with a massive 30 games confirmed right now to hit alongside the first major retail VR headset. Below, you'll find the names, comfort rating, and price for everything arriving on March 28.

Additionally, there are a number of games confirmed for the launch window. These include The Climb (Moderate comfort, $49.99), digital collectible card game Dragon Front (Comfortable, free to play), Ubisoft's soaring Eagle Flight (Moderate comfort), and Insomniac's haunting Edge of Nowhere. These will all come in the spring, with The Climb specifically targeting April.
The Oculus Rift begins shipping on March 28, with pre-orders to be filled in order as supply allows. For more on the Year of VR, check out our January coverage hub.
While some of these are Gear VR ports or VR adaptation of traditional format games, the bulk of this list is made-for-VR. It's astonishing to me how far many of these games have come in just the few short months since we previewed them for our January Year of VR cover. I'm more excited for the Rift than ever having just seen a number of these stellar games.
