The Rift: U.R.I.D.I.S has kept a relatively low profile during its development phase so far. Created by students from the ISART Digital school, minor updates for the upcoming videogame have been posted on its official blog to keep us in the loop, but we still don’t know much about it. That looks to change in the near future as the developers have teased VRFocus with a new image of the title, promising new information soon.
The teaser image can be seen below. It shows a pilot sitting in the cockpit of one of the title’s aircraft, looking overhead at an ongoing dogfight. In his hands he holds what appears to be an Xbox 360 controller, suggesting that this will be the primary means of input for the experience. In the title, players will assume the role of those pilots, controlling their aircraft in a first-person perspective and shooting down enemies. A short message accompanying the teaser image simply said ‘Soon’, suggesting that we’ll finally find out more about the videogame in the near future.
The last we heard from The Rift: U.R.I.D.I.S, the title had entered the alpha stage of development. It’s still not clear specifically what platforms it will release on, though confirmed support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset certainly makes PC, Mac and Linux likely options at the very least. Could we see the title arrive on any more platforms, such as the PlayStation 4 with Project Morpheus support? VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress, bringing you the latest.
