Slightly Mad Studios’ upcoming racing title Project Cars will be compatible with Sony’s Project Morpheus virtual reality headset.
We’re proud to announce today that Project Cars will be supporting Project Morpheus giving players a totally fresh and exhilarating new perspective on what it feels like to sit in the cockpit of a high-performance machine screaming around a beautiful location,” the studio said.
Virtual reality is a perfect fit for racing games since the game world literally comes rushing towards you from the distance and the increased sense of depth and speed that stereoscopic vision affords you makes this incredibly real and tangible.
Project Morpheus also allows you to see detail you might have otherwise missed. Via our interior cameras not only can you look around the cockpit and see everything from a first-person perspective, but using head-tracking via the PlayStation Camera you can also now move around the cockpit too – peer closer at some intricate detail or turn around and look out of the back window.
We think players are going to be blown away by Project Morpheus when they get their hands on it. Project Cars is all about stepping into the shoes of a race driver and taking that ultimate journey towards the hall of fame. Virtual reality and Project Morpheus are going to allow you to experience every start light, every corner, every finish line now through the driver’s eyes like never before.”
Project CARS will be released on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U and Steam OS in November.
