Vehicle Simulator Prepar3D Getting Oculus Rift Support

Prepar3D, a simulation platform that allows users to create training scenarios for both military and commercial vehicles, will be receiving support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset. Developer Lockheed Martin confirmed as much on its blog detailing new updates for the upcoming version of the software, dubbed v2.2.

Prepare3d_1Oculus Rift integration will be arriving as part of the Prepar3D Development Kit (PDK). This means that users will be able to impliment the technology into their experiences themselves. The kit should be rolling out to beta testers later this week, while other users will be getting it in a few week’s time.

Prepar3D offers a range of military and commercial aircraft, automobiles and boasts to train in. Users purchase the developer kits and can then create their own scenarios for others to train in, with the ability to mod the vehicles and integrate systems such as air traffic control into the simulation. It’s available from the software’s official site. VRFocus will continue to follow all VR supported software and bring it to you.
