The Oculus Rift was announced earlier in the year to great hoopla, and while many expressed disappointment at its $599 price tag, it is, at the very least, cheaper than the competing HTC Vive. And it remains one of the most highly-expected new tech devices of 2016 in the run-up to its official release date next week. That said, those interested in buying the Rift can look forward to any one of the 30 VR games confirmed as launch day titles, including the aforementioned Project Cars from Slightly Mad Studios.
Slightly Mad took to Twitter yesterday to post a quick tease on the microblogging site, showing how the game will look like to players while they’re behind the wheel. If you’ve got an Oculus Rift, you can strap it on and play the game, with the option to look around as you pass cars on the race track. Like VR experiences are meant to be, Project Cars looks like an immersive, in-depth driving experience, and the tease posted on Twitter does hint at some great things to come.
Given that the PlayStation VR was announced last week and the HTC Vive toward the end of February, you may be wondering if Project Cars’ virtual reality version will be available for those devices. Per reports, Slightly Mad has not given any official confirmation, though it may have more information ready closer to those headsets’ release dates.
Gamers who want to buy Project Cars for Oculus Rift when the game and the VR headset get released should keep in mind that the game has an “Intense” comfort rating. That means you may find the game a bit uncomfortable (or maybe very uncomfortable) if you aren’t used to driving cars in a virtual reality setting. But aside from this warning, there should be nothing to worry about as the game draws closer to its release date toward the end of the month, on March 28, 2016.
