Indie developer Slight Mad Studios has confirmed that it’s upcoming racing title, named Project CARS, will be ‘one of the first’ titles to feature support for the Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) headset on PlayStation 4. The developer’s Andy Tudor confirmed as much on the official PlayStation Blog, having first announced support back in March 2014. Support for the Oculus Rift headset on PC was confirmed back in 2012.
“Project CARS will be one of the first games on PS4 to support virtual reality via the Project Morpheus headset,” Tudor wrote. “Finally, you’re going to really feel what it’s like sat in the driving seat of a high performance machine as you look around the cockpit, glance left and right as you overtake an opponent, and get an exhilarating sense of speed as you scream down the finishing straight.”
The developer also promised a special look at Project Morpheus support in a later blog post. Project CARS is aiming to be a full-scale racing simulator with a wide variety of vehicles, tracks and modes both online and offline. The team has even had a hand from real racers such as Nicolas Hamilton and Oli Webb.
VRFocus will continue to follow Project CARS and report back with any new developments.
