Oculus VR have introduced the Oculus Home layout for the Oculus Rift during the Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2016 this week.
Oculus introduced the design of their Home layout for the Rift stating:
“We designed Home from the ground up for VR, and it’s evolved significantly since its launch on Gear VR. Home is the best way to explore your library, discover new content, and connect with friends in VR.”
Oculus Home acts as a dashboard for your VR content and enables you to explore your library set in what looks like a scenic virtual living area. The dashboard is split into three separate sections with the latest titles available in the Store being positioned in the center, with the right sections showing the social area displaying all your friends that are online and any friend requests, leaving the left section displaying the recent games that have been launched on the Rift. You’ll be able to launch games outside of the Home experience that have been purchased elsewhere outside of the Rift store, as Oculus haven’t specifically stated if they’ll be an import option for Oculus Home.
The Oculus Rift will launch on March 28, 2016, and will feature the Oculus Home layout at launch, as well as 30 launch titles that have been confirmed.
