Rockband VR

Palmer Lucky hit the stage with a Rock Band guitar to announce Rock Band VR, a version of the popular plastic instruments game designed with the Oculus Rift in mind. It is a first party development, with Oculus Studios creating the game in partnership with traditional franchise creators Harmonix.

The trailer for the game included DragonForce teaching Palmer and his crew how to live like rock stars. Once it shifted over to gameplay, you could see a first person view of the guitarist wielding a virtual facsimile of the Rock Band guitar. The style from the game's background graphics has been preserved and was shown off as brief in-game footage of someone playing "Through The Fire and Flames" was shown. Rock Band VR will be launching near the launch of the Oculus Rift in Q1 of 2016.
