Earlier this week VRFocus reported on the announcement that the latest patch for the PC version of the popular GRID Autosport would bring Oculus Rift compatibility to the videogame. That patch has now launched, and all gamers owning an Oculus Rift development kit can utilise it in-game from today.
GRID Autosport is one of a number of racing videogames to offer compatibility with the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs), following Motorsport Revolution and Assetto Corsa, as well as pre-empting Slightly Mad Studios’ high profile release, Project CARS. The VR edition of GRID Autosport is only experimental at this point, but suggests bigger things may be on the way down the line.
“We have tested both the DK1 and DK2, and released support using SDK 0.4.1,” stated Ben Walke, Community Manager at Codemasters. “This support is only experimental, and as such, there are some in-game options that may cause crashes if you try to change them in game – examples of these are changing resolution, and resizing the window.”
Instructions on how to run GRID Autosport in VR, as well as a number of warnings concerning menu screens and other noteworthy issues, can be found on Codemasters’ official blog. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on GRID Autosport in VR and other racing titles for the Oculus Rift.
