Project Cars Will Support Sony's VR Tech
Everyone is talking about Sony's freshly unveiled virtual reality tech, dubbed "Project Morpheus."
Many have the same question: What games will support it? Well, one of the first will be Slightly Mad Studios' upcoming racer, Project Cars.
The developer has announced that their new game will support the VR device, and it will also support head-tracking via the PlayStation Camera.
"We’re proud to announce today that Project Cars will be supporting Project Morpheus, giving players a totally fresh and exhilarating new perspective on what it feels like to sit in the cockpit of a high-performance machine screaming around a beautiful location.
Virtual reality is a perfect fit for racing games since the game world literally comes rushing towards you from the distance and the increased sense of depth and speed that stereoscopic vision affords you makes this incredibly real and tangible. So when you’re racing you get a much better perception of distances and position and you feel far more enveloped by that world rather than just looking through a window at it."
The studio added that VR will let you enjoy details you would otherwise miss. For instance, you can look around the cockpit in VR mode. The interesting part about this is that Evolution Studios apparently tried using Project Morpheus in their new racer, Driveclub, but it didn't pan out. ...wonder what Slightly Mad has done differently?
