First Footage of Project CARS Running on Oculus Rift VR Headset Released

Slightly Mad Studios, the team behind the incredible racing sim “Project CARS”, has released the first footage of their upcoming title running on the Oculus rift VR headset.

The new video shows off 6 minutes of the Oculus Rift VR headset, which obviously runs in that weird double fisheye resolution, but it’s the finer details of the video that really stand out; little moments where you can see you can tell the person playing the game is leaning into corners, looking further down the track on fast corners, checking mirrors and watching for overtaking opponents. This level of freedom isn’t something you can get with the camera set to an analogue stick.

The developer is keen to point out that this is build 723 of the game, saying that the wet weather conditions and the choice of track are not current best suited to show off the games framerate. They’re talking mostly nonsense of course, the game looks great and I’ll forgive any faults given that the game isn’t even out yet.
