Big news from 2015 Game Awards with the announcement of Rockband VR for the rift !!!

The announcement made by Oculus founder Palmer Luckey came as a surprise to many with Oculus keeping a tight lid on the news of the partnership with harmonix, up until now.

"We wanted to make the Rockband experience on Oculus so realistic that the player actually feels like they are a Rockstar."  Palmer Luckey

Little info was given on what instruments will be supported or how the game-play will work, but we do know its set to be released along with the Oculus Rift in Q1 2016 and is going to be one of the flagship titles for the rift launch.

 

 

If done correctly Rockband VR could be awesome fun and I for one can't wait to get my rock on in VR. With the addition of tracked controllers and online multiplayer Rockband VR could be the killer franchise that Oculus need to help make VR mainstream in 2016.
