Oculus has revealed which games will be available when its $599 Rift headset launches on March 28. 

There are 30 launch titles in total, including games we already knew about such as Lucky's Tale and EVE: Valkyrie, both of which were bundled with Rift pre-orders

The list, which can be viewed in its entirety here, also features the likes of Elite Dangerous, Adrift, Chronos, EVE Gunjack, and a few surprise names, such as Project Cars and Vanishing of Ethan Carter

Interestingly, each game comes with its own "comfort" rating, giving some indication as to how intense each experience will be. 

Likely a response to motion sickness concerns, there are three levels of comfort, each shown using a traffic light system. 

As picked up by Eurogamer, a green rating represents a "comfortable" experience, a yellow rating a "moderate" experience, and a red rating an "intense" experience.

Pricing details were also released alongside the new rating system, with games priced from $4.99 to $59.99.
