Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has confirmed that Eidos Montreal’s Thief will be playable on its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) tomorrow. The news was confirmed to VRFocus at the Project Morpheus booth on the show floor, where the company is currently alternate different demo software for the headset, which was revealed on at a presentation on Tuesday 18th March, 2014. Attendees will have a limited amount of time to go hands-on with a VR version of the title, which release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC last month.
Thief was first shown running on Project Morpheus at the device’s reveal presentation. It’s been stressed that the entire game isn’t being converted to VR, rather certain scenes has been integrated with the tech for show at GDC. Mention of the Oculus Rift VR headset was found in the PC version of the title’s code last month – perhaps an update for VR compatibility will arrive once both devices have been released onto the market?
SCE has a range of demos on display at its booth this week. VRFocus has already gone hands-on with the underwater experience The Deep and a tech demo named The Castle, and will have plenty more to come on other software on show.
