    Following its release in March in North America, the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset will launch in European and Canadian stores on September 20, Oculus announced today.

    In a blog post, Oculus said people in those regions can order the headset beginning today, but they won't start shipping or be available for in-store sale until September 20. The device costs £549/€699 in Europe. No Canadian price was mentioned in the blog post, but it's available to preorder from the Microsoft Store for CAD $849. You can see a list of European and Canadian retail partners on the Oculus website.


    As was the case for North America, every Rift unit comes with the platformer game Lucky's Tale.

    "When you pick up your Rift from a European or Canadian store, you'll get a localized product with regional pricing and translated packaging, manuals, and software," Oculus said. "We're also supporting developers to help them localize their games and experiences."

    Rift requires a PC. You can test your existing rig with this compatibility tool to ensure it has the required power to run Rift well.

    Oculus also announced that it's bringing Rift demo experiences to European and Canadian retail locations. Demo games include The Climb and the movie Henry, among others.

    Finally, Oculus said Gamescom attendees can check out Rift and some Oculus Touch-enabled titles to this week at the event in Cologne, Germany. The Touch controllers are slated to go on sale later this year.
