Remember the amazing video that showcased Oculus Rift with Half-Life 2? Well, since a lot of PC gamers still consider Crysis as the best graphical game, Nathan Andrews decided to port his Oculus Rift mod to it. Yeap, this is the same head and gun tracking mod for the Oculus Rift that was shown off with Black Mesa, though it is still pretty early in development.
As Nathan said:
“I ported the Half-Life 2 VR mod that I’ve been working on over to Crysis and Crysis Wars (and also Cryengine 3 if anyone is interested in building a game from the ground up with VR support). Here’s a first look at Crysis played with the same setup as my previous Half-Life 2 VR videos.”
As expected, this early version of this Oculus Rift is not perfect and there are some issues that have not been addressed yet, as there is no crosshair tracking and iron-sights. Still, we are pretty sure that Nathan will fix those issues in a later version of his mod.
Enjoy and special thanks to our reader ‘Ghost Rider LSOV’ for spotting it!
