This year, Oculus took advantage of the conference to make a number of notable announcements, ranging from triple-A games (like Star Wars: Vader Immortal Episode 2, Asgard’s Wrath, and Stormland) to long-rumored hardware releases (like finger-tracking for the Oculus Quest and the ongoing development of Facebook’s AR glasses).
