Each Oculus Rift will ship with two games, Lucky's Tale and EVE: Valkyrie (demoed below). The package also comes with an Xbox One wireless controller.

Oculus is also developing its own handheld dual controller, called Touch, that will further immerse the player in the virtual reality environment. Touch controllers aren't expected until sometime in the second half of 2016.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey will be answering questions in a Reddit AMA on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Pacific time.
