Samsung Gear VR-70 new games optimized for Bluetooth controller
As part of the launch of the Samsung Gear VR Bluetooth controller, more than 70 games optimized for this accessory will be added to the Oculus Store. Also, the Oculus Home platform will also benefit from a complete overhaul.
From 21 April, the new Samsung Gear VR, optimized for the Samsung Galaxy S8, will be available for sale. Its launch will be accompanied by a new Bluetooth motion detection controller.
In this context, the Oculus Home platform for Samsung Gear VR will benefit in the coming weeks from a major update. Completely redesigned, the platform will offer loading times reduced by three. This will allow users to move much faster into virtual reality.
Also, a new Explorer feature will make it easier to find quality content and View RV videos. Finally, the visual quality of the Oculus Home menu has been greatly improved with doubled resolution. This update will be rolled out gradually in the coming weeks.
Still, in connection with the launch of the Bluetooth controller, more than 20 new games will be available from April. In the following months, an additional 50 titles will be added to the store. These titles will be designed to take advantage of the new controller features.
Oculus promises that this new accessory will significantly improve the gaming comfort of the Gear VR. It allows, for example, to draw, fish with precision, or even open fire in real time using guns on opponents in multiplayer games in virtual reality. This controller can also be used in Oculus Rooms to interact in a new way with other users.
