The developers working at Born Ready Games on Strike Suit Zero announce that they are adding support for Oculus Rift, the Virtual Reality headset, in order to change the core gameplay elements of the space-based game.
On the official Kickstarter page
for the project it says, “Imagine taking to a fully 3D cockpit, navigating space and looking about your environment as if you were actually there. The Oculus Rift will allow you to look all around you, letting you keep track of the enemy in a way that doesn’t just rely on a radar. This will really change up the core dogfighting experience.”
The team adds, “Having tried the Rift at PAX – and seen firsthand how incredible the headset is – this is tech we’re really excited to see Strike Suit Zero working on.”
Those who are interested in the Virtual Reality-powered version of Strike Suit Zero need to check their Kickstarter contribution to the game and add another dollar in order to get a compatible beta version.
The problem with that offer is that at the moment the Oculus Rift headset is not yet on sale, which means that the only people who can use the new version of the game are those who have managed to get their hands on a development kit for the VR headset.
Oculus Rift aims to revolutionize gaming by making it easy to offer Virtual Reality-based experiences for all players at an affordable price.
The standard version of Strike Suit Zero will be launched exclusively on the PC during January 2013.
Those who like the game can also still contribute via Kickstarter
Strike Suit Zero is a classic space combat game which is specifically designed to fans of the genre, who have failed to get any new titles in the last few years.
