Chronos, the third-person, role-playing game from Gunfire Games got two new trailers and a bunch of gorgeous new screens. If you're going to be the lucky owner of an Oculus Rift when it launches on March 28, then I hope Chronos is one of the first games you play. What we've seen so far from the screenshots and trailers promise a virtual reality world that is both beautiful and fascinating. 

"Chronos is an atmospheric RPG that chronicles a hero's lifelong quest to save their homeland from a great evil. Grow wiser, stronger and more powerful as you explore the depths of the mysterious labyrinth. But beware, the labyrinth takes a heavy toll – each time your hero dies, they lose a year of their life! Gunfire Games.

  • Adventure RPG - Refreshing combination of Adventure Game elements and RPG mechanics. 
  • VR - Explore an atmospheric fantasy world in full Virtual Reality. An unparalleled level of immersion, scale and detail! 
  • Deep Combat – A variety of weapons, abilities and powers are available to the player in the pursuit of their quest.   
  • Unique Aging Mechanic – Every time the player dies they age one year. Player's must adapt to their advancing age as they progress their character; starting the game young, nimble and quick, and ending wise and more attuned to magic.

Chronos is one of 30 Oculus Rift launch titles - none of it is AAA though. In an interview with Polygon, Oculus software development lead, Jason Rubin, explains why: "Right now the scale of game we can do and the amount of game we can do is here," he said. "Over time, though, we need to get to triple, triple A games, like Call of Duty. We haven't had enough time to make a Call of Duty yet. Even if we started with the Devkit 2 (in 2014) launch."

I wonder how many South African gamers will purchase the Oculus Rift at launch as it's not yet listed at any retailers except on Raru's US Imports section - and it's going to cost you. A lot. Prices vary from R42 000 to almost R50 000, but it includes the full monty - Alienware or ASUS Oculus Ready bundles.
