Oculus Rift has just released their price points for Lone Echo and Echo Arena, and they are surprisingly reasonably priced. These two games were first revealed to the public in October of last year. The beta has been out for some time now and people have been calling it the best virtual reality game yet. This sci-fi thrill ride has been the talk of the VR community for a while and now we are just 4 days away from the official public release. Lone Echo and Echo Arena will be launched on July 20, 2017. So prepare yourselves for this awesome, exhilarating, zero-gravity battlefield.
Lone Echo and Echo Arena Official Trailer:
Lone Echo, the main title, will be priced at $39.99 USD ($34.99 UDS if you pre-order). If you own this game in the Oculus Store, you will have full access to Echo Arena at no extra charge. You will be able to access Echo Arena from the main menu of Lone Echo. What’s more, Oculus (thanks to a sponsorship from Intel) is giving Echo Arena away, for free, for the first 3 months. So if you add the game to your library within those three months then you won’t have to pay for it at all. A quality VR game for free? Am I dreaming? Oculus and Intel – who is running the VR Challenger League with Echo Arena as a VR eSports title – has made many people in the VR community very happy. So if you don’t get the game in those three months then it will cost you $19.99.
Oculus and Intel – Making the Dream Happen
This epic, fast-paced, heart-pumping, action-sci-fi game will be one of the most talked about VR games this year. And with a move like this from Oculus, I think it’s safe to say the competition will begin to offer the same. This trial period allows you to fully immerse yourself in the game and determine if Lone Echo, or the paid version of Echo Arena, is worth the money.
This offer will end at some point near the end of November but there are no official details about what that will mean yet. Be sure, within the next 4 days, you go to the Oculus Store and preorder your copy of Lone Echo for $5 USD off. If you would like to wait and give the game a test run first, hold out until July 20, and download your free, full access, 3-month trial of Echo Arena. Don’t miss out on this incredibly generous opportunity, thanks to Oculus and Intel.
