Ghostship Aftermath Receives VR Support
Originally released for standard monitors, MAG Studios has today updated its first-person survival horror videogame, Ghostship Aftermath, with support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD). The update arrives today as was promised by the developers earlier in the week. The title was designed for use with VR, though saw a release ahead of the support which has helped iron out a number of bugs.
The support arrives in the form of a patch to version 1.2 of Ghostship Aftermath. It is currently only compatible with the first version of the development kit for the Oculus Rift (DK1) though support for the second (DK2) is planned for when the developer ‘as the means to do so’, presumably meaning its own version of the device to work with. When ready, DK2 support will bring positional tracking and more.
Elsewhere Ghostship Aftermath enjoys a range of additions, tweaks and fixes with this update. Changes include menu overhauls and new sound options as well as the inclusion of news shields, weapons, ammo and medkits. Certain weapons such as the laser pistol have been tweaked while a whole host of bugs that have been discovered have been addressed, including collision issues with dead bodies and a bug at the start of the title.
Ghostship Aftermath is a horror title in which players battle against horrific monsters on board an infested spaceship. The title is due to receive a prequel later in 2014 in the form of CDF Ghostship. VRFocus will continue to follow Ghostship Afertmath‘s progress going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its development.
