Slightly Mad Studios has announced that they plan to put gamers right in the driver seat with their next release Project CARS being made compatible with Sony’s new VR headset, Project Morpheus.
“Building upon all the techniques and features we’ve pioneered in our previous games to simulate a sensation of speed, distance perception, changing focal points, and physically-accurate cockpit and helmet views,” said a post on the studio’s blog. “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.”
Project CARS is being billed by its studio as the most beautiful racer ever made and they have the resume to back it up. Slightly Mad has produced some seriously gorgeous racing games like Need 4 Speed: Shift and World of Cars.
The game’s integration with the Morpheus will be all-encompassing as players will be able to use the headset to read accurate dials, move around the cockpit and even look behind them to see who’s coming. The title is slated for release in fall of this year.
