While price cuts both temporary and permanent combined with lowering system requirements and cheaper VR-capable gaming PCs are helping to drive adoption of PC-based virtual reality, there's one thing above all that is required for VR to succeed where it has previously failed to gain traction: If there's no content, then gamers simply won't drop the hundreds of pounds required to pick up a VR headset and suitable driving hardware.

With that in mind, Oculus VR has been working to tie down exclusives - timed and otherwise - as a means of upping the pressure on rival HTC and its Vive platform.

First announced last year at the Oculus Connect event, Arktika.1 comes courtesy of 4A Games, the company behind the well-regarded Metro first-person shooter franchise.

Designed around the Oculus Touch motion-tracked controllers - making them a requirement, which is bad news for early adopters of the Oculus Rift who have yet to splash out on the now-mandatory controller set - Arktika.1 is claimed by its creators to 'offer the most impressive visuals ever seen in VR' thanks to the latest revision of the in-house 4A Engine game engine.

In the game, the player is placed in the head of a character seeking to protect a colony located in the wastelands of Russia from attack following a disaster which has plunged the planet into a new ice age.

Players are able to switch the game between standing still on-rails and room-scale modes, 4A Games has confirmed.

Facebook-owned Oculus VR has made some major announcements at its annual Oculus Connect conference including a permanent price cut for its Rift headset and the impending launch of an all-in-one standalone headset dubbed Oculus Go.

The biggest announcement of the Oculus Connect conference, now in its fourth year and with nearly 3,000 attendees, was Oculus Go: a standalone virtual reality headset which requires no host computer to run.

'It’s awesome for watching movies or concerts, playing games, or just hanging out with your friends in VR,' the company claims in its announcement.

'The high-resolution fast-switch LCD screen dramatically improves visual clarity and reduces screen door effect.

Oculus Go also ships with integrated spatial audio.

The speakers are built right into the headset, transporting you straight into VR and making the headset easy to share with someone else.

Oculus today announced a change to its login policy. Starting this fall, everyone on Oculus will have to have a Facebook account in order to use their device. It sounds like something Oculus fans have been dreading since the company was purchased by Facebook.
