This week has seen another extreme sports-based virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame make itself known. Volo Airsport, a wing-suit simulator from a Dutch development team, has launched a Steam Greenlight campaign. The title hopes to secure enough positive votes to be approved for sale on Valve’s digital PC store, though is already available in Early Access form on the videogame’s official website with full support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD).
Volo Airsport is a third-person experience in which players control an avatar that takes flight in a wingsuit, allowing them to glide around a picturesque environment. The title’s huge landscape is inspirted by the Swiss and French Alps, with players able to travel at over 250Km/h over mountains or calmly glide along the scenery, with the character’s body and gear fully physically simulated. Oculus Rift support is said to have known issues that will likely be addressed in the future.
“We’ve worked very hard to make this version of Volo Airsport a unique, beautiful and thrilling experience, but we’re not done yet!” the developer noted on its Greenlight page. “With your support we can expand the game, and make it into the best damn aerial playground you’ve ever seen.”
Over time the developer will be updating Volo Airsport with a raft of new features including both local and online multiplayer, stylised character models, mod support and much more. The Early Access version of the title is currently available for $13 USD. VRFocus will continue to follow Volo Airsport going forward, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
