Project Cars from Slightly Mad Studios will be among one of the first titles available for PlayStation 4’s Project Morpheus.
“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,” said the developer (via GameSpot).
"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. So when you’re racing you get a much better perception of distances and position and you feel far more enveloped by that world rather than just looking through a window at it."
"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."
Sony announced its VR headset at GDC 2014, and while a release date and price have yet to be confirmed, the console maker said it aims to position it as an ‘affordable’ price.
Project Cars is scheduled to ship for PS4, PC, Xbox One and Wii U in November of this year.
