Today marks the launch of the Oculus Quest VR headset. It is a standalone VR headset that is neither tethered to the PC nor requires a mobile device to operate. Rather, it uses a Snapdragon chip to power the HMD. And with that, we’d like to introduce you to some amazing VR games and experiences that you should consider trying out on the new headset.
In the VR game you’ll wield two lightsabers in your hands to smash the oncoming beats. There are two differently squared tiles with arrows on top of them that will tell you on how to slice it.
You must grip the light saber and slice through the tile in the correct position. You’ll usually see the red tiles on the left and the blue tiles on the right. But sometimes, they will switch paths where you must re-orient your hands to match and slice the beat. In addition, you’ll find extra tiles with the letter “X” on them which you must skip over.
The new series takes place in between Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. You will get to visit Vader’s lair on Mustafar. The canonical immersive adventure takes place between Star Wars – Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope, and is set up by the events of Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire.

“Tilt Brush is designed for creators — whether you’re a casual doodler or a professional artist,” says Google Product Manager Elisabeth Morant. “Over time, we’ve seen the product used in ways we never would have imagined — from bringing our favorite Disney characters to life, to prototyping what became a Time Magazine’s best of 2018 invention, to 3D printing and casting a Tilt Brush self portrait as a bronze statue. The possibilities are endless, and we’ve only just scratched the surface.”
