Video games weren’t a big part of Oculus’s Connect 4 event today in San Jose. They took a backseat to things like the new standalone Oculus Go headset and the Rift Core 2.0‘s new user interface software.

This is developer Ready At Dawn’s follow-up to Echo Arena and Lone Echo. Echo Combat is coming in 2018. Oculus also teased a story-based sequel to Lone Echo.
