Sony has confirmed that its newly-announced Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset will feature support for both online and local multiplayer titles. Unfortunately, the company did not have any examples of titles that might use the device with such modes. The company’s Anton Mikhailov took to the stage at Sony’s Driving the Future of Innovation presentation at GDC 2014 to confirm that “Online and local mulitplayer will be included in Sony Computer Entertainment’s VR plans.”
Unfortunately, the company did not have any examples of titles that might use the device with such modes. It was later confirmed that only a single headset will run on the PS4 at any one time, but it was suggested that one player can be using the television while another uses the VR headset for a competitive multiplayer experience. Perhaps this could also translate to a Wii U-like second screen application for videogames?
Multiplayer compatibility will hopefully help the devices chances of being integrated into titles like Call of Duty and Battlefield. VRFocus will track the progress of the headset and any possible multiplayer titles and report back with the latest.
