Oculus’s long-awaited virtual reality headset Rift will finally arrive in in two weeks. Ahead of the device’s debut, the hardware maker unveiled a number of new games for the device.

Oculus VR, which Facebook purchased in 2014 for $2.5 billion, announced on Wednesday that 30 games will be available to play on the Rift on March 28.

The games span a variety of experiences, and Oculus is categorizing games for VR newbies as well as more experienced players. Games will be split into three tiers-comfortable, intermediate and intense.

The Rift itself costs $600, and games range from $10 to $60 per game. Consumers will also receive a pair of free games: CCP Games’ space combat shooter EVE Valkyrie and Playful’s platform adventure game Lucky’s Tale.

Oculus added that it expects at least hundred more games coming to the platform later this year.

Of course, Oculus will have plenty of competition already. The Samsung Gear VR headset debuted last year. Both HTC and Sony’s PlayStation are due to release their own headsets later this year as well.
