Ubisoft has today announced their Gamescom line-up. Alongside the likes of Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege and Just Dance 2016, the publisher’s recently revealed debut virtual reality (VR) project, Trackmania Turbo, has been confirmed for the show taking place in Cologne, 5th – 9th August 2015.
Originally announced at last month’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Los Angeles, Trackmania Turbo is currently in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The PC edition of the videogame has already been confirmed to support VR head-mounted displays (HMDs), though at present there’s no word on whether the PlayStation 4 edition of the videogame will be compatible with the forthcoming Project Morpheus.
In addition to the high-octane Trackmania Turbo, Gamescom visitors will be able to experience the Rabbids Virtual Reality Ride, which uses an Oculus Rift HMD and motion seat to create an immersive VR experience. Rabbids Virtual Reality Ride was also revealed at E3, shown behind closed doors at Ubisoft’s private booth.
Gamescom is considered the second biggest international trade event in the videogames industry’s annual calendar and VRFocus will be in attendance every day, reporting on all the latest direct from the show floor.
UPDATE: Since the publication of this article Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment, has contacted VRFocus to confirm that Trackmania Turbo is indeed compatible with Project Morpheus and was in fact playable on Sony Computer Entertainment’s booth at E3 last month.
