VR team sport game Echo Arena will be free for Oculus Rift owners, the dev announced during the Intel Conference this morning. The ten-player zero-G frisbee game, which is based on the studio's single-player Lone Echo (opens in new tab), joins Robo Recall (opens in new tab) on the list of free Rift pack-ins. 

The singleplayer game, Lone Echo, is available for pre-order on the Rift store, and both games will be out July 20.

We'll see more from Intel and Oculus during the PC Gaming Show, coming up at 10 am Pacific.  You can watch the show live on Twitch (opens in new tab), and catch up on all the news from this year's show right here.   

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
