Codemasters deserves a pat on the again for its VR help. The studio’s work on DiRT Rally for the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR (PSVR) was stellar, leading to one of many best games for each headsets. However don’t count on VR help to begin popping up in all the developer’s games.
F1 2017 launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this month, for instance, and doesn’t function any form of headset help. It’s one other driving sport through which you will get a practical cockpit experience so that you would possibly assume a VR port can be simple post-DiRT, however you’d be fallacious.
Chatting with GamesIndustry.biz, Inventive Director Lee Mather mentioned that the group had given VR help lots of consideration for its newest sport, however determined to carry off for the second.
“It’s a little trickier for us because we’re pushing the boundaries when it comes to our physics,” Mather defined. “We have a lot of elements on screen with the OSD, so that’s a lot of information the player would have to process in VR. The changes to move the game onto VR would be fairly significant, and we wouldn’t want to do it if it meant compromising any area of the game. That’s why we’re holding back on that at the moment, but it’s something we’re considering.”
Following Rally’s launch, DiRT four additionally got here and went with none VR help. Reality be instructed there’s little monetary incentive for the group to combine VR whereas set up bases for Rift, Vive and PSVR are nonetheless comparatively low, however nonetheless doesn’t cease us wanting it.
It’s nonetheless doable, after all, however it should doubtless be a while earlier than we get affirmation come what may. Within the meantime Undertaking Vehicles 2 is shaping up very properly in your VR driving repair.
