Gamescom 2016 – you were awesome! It was the first time we gave the general public the chance to play The Climb with Oculus Touch and the week had a whole load of fun as we saw people experiencing free solo rock climbing in VR with these amazing new controllers. It's always great to meet players and we loved seeing their “VR faces" as they took on our virtual rocks.

Another special guest, Jason Rubin, Head of Studios at Oculus, also stopped by:

Other attendees also took to Twitter to give their take on proceedings:

We'd like to say thanks to everyone who came down to our booth – we had an absolute blast at Gamescom 2016. And we'll leave you with a reminder that support for Oculus Touch will be added when the controllers launch, so you can experience them for yourself!
