Slightly Mad Studios has announced that its upcoming racing title Project Cars will support Sony’s virtual reality headset on PlayStation 4.
“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 developer wrote in a blog post.
“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.”
The developer added that thanks to the PlayStation Camera’s head-tracking feature players will also be able to move around the cockpit. “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.”
Project Cars is set to release this November for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, and Steam OS.
