Check Your Email | Oculus Rift Preorders Shipping
The long wait is finally over. The consumer Oculus Rift preorders are shipping out and should start arriving this week.
An email we out to all who’ve preordered the Oculus Rift to confirm that that the headsets are indeed shipping. Oculus will send an additional email to those who’ve already pre-ordered their headsets with included shipping information. Kickstarter backers and those first to pre-order should be receiving their Rifts this week with everyone else having to wait an additional 1 – 3 weeks or longer depending on pre-order date. With the Oculus Rift Preorders Shipping the long road of the rift’s journey from Kickstarter project to a consumer nearly is complete.
Kickstarter units will start arriving today, and the first pre-ordered Rifts will start shipping mid-week and arrive soon after. We’re working as fast as we can to get Rifts to customers who pre-ordered. If you pre-ordered, you’ll get an email when your order is being prepped (1-3 weeks prior to shipping) and then another one when your payment method has been charged and your Rift is on its way.
Dozens of VR games, 360 videos, film shorts, and more
There’s an incredible lineup of more than 30 games available on the Oculus Store, ready to play right now! There’s something for everyone – from the Zelda-esque labyrinth adventure of Chronos to the high-impact space battle simulation of EVE: Valkyrie, and of course Lucky’s Tale, the colorfully immersive VR platformer that’s bundled with every Rift. Meet up with your friends in VR and control mighty armies in AirMech Command, engage in an epic race in BlazeRush or duke it out on the court in VR Tennis.
You can explore all the experiences available today and get a peek at what’s coming soon in the Experiences section on oculus.com.
You’ll also be able to explore a growing catalog of video content. Oculus Video for Rift launches today with thousands of Facebook 360 videos and the best of Vimeo and Twitch livestreams. We’ll be adding feature-length movies, new partners, and lots more content to Oculus Video soon.
If you are still considering getting an Oculus Rift you’ll most likely will have to wait until the end of April or later to receive it. Amazon has an Oculus Rift PC Bundle that’ll be released on April 23 and you can still pre-order the headset through that official Oculus homepage.
