Nearly two years after raising more than $600,000 on the crowd-funding website, Kickstarter, Slightly Mad’s upcoming racing simulator, Project Cars, is still under development and is still set to hit the PC and Consoles as announced. Today the development team announced that it will be one of the first titles to support Sony’s Virtual Reality headset, Project Morpheus which was unveiled during this year’s GDC.
The development studio firmly stands by Virtual Reality and believes that peripherals like Project Morpheus will be bringing extreme realism to the racing genre. In a post on the WMD portal, Slightly Mad stated;
“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 Cars will be rushing to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and WiiU this November.
