As announced yesterday, the Oculus Rift consumer edition is finally going to be available for pre-order this week, albeit with no pricing details still announced. However, today, Oculus announced a neat promotion in support of those who have had faith in the VR headset since the beginning.
Anyone who provided support on the device’s Kickstarter page and received a development kit will be receiving a special bundle of the finished Oculus Rift free of charge. The bundle includes an Xbox One controller and copies of the games Lucky’s Tale and Eve: Valkyrie.
Oculus released this message to followers:
You’re going to experience thrilling adventures in Lucky’s Tale and Edge of Nowhere, feel your heart race as you scale mountains in The Climb, and become a rockstar in Rockband VR. You’ll create and share something magical in Oculus Medium and participate in the ultimate space dogfighting in EVE: Valkyrie.
As one of the early supporters of Oculus, you helped make this revolution happen. And before we open Rift pre-orders to the world, we wanted to share one more special update with you, our Kickstarter community.
To claim your free Rift, fill out the survey you’ll receive from Kickstarter before February 1, 2016 and provide a shipping address that is located in one of the 20 countries Rift is launching in. For those who don’t live in one of those 20 countries, we’re working on an alternative, and you can let us know your preference in the form.
You were there at the beginning of our journey — we couldn’t have done it without you. Today marks a new chapter.
Pre-orders for the finished Oculus Rift go live tomorrow, January 6, 2016.
