Ubisoft announced at Paris Games Week that Trackmania Turbo will be compatible with the Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.
Trackmania Turbo was announced at E3 this year, and its virtual reality compatibility was on display during the show. It’s a time-challenge car racing game that looks like Hot Wheels crossed with a theme park. The game will have over 200 looping, gravity-defying tracks. Tracks can also be randomly generated, giving you even more options.
It will come out for the PlayStation 4, as well as Xbox One and PC in early 2016.
“Virtual Reality is a natural fit for the series, by allowing players to immerse themselves deeper into the game when racing along the mesmerizing Trackmania tracks,” PlayStation said in a press release. If you have a VR headset, you can hook it up to play the game in VR, or play it on the television as you normally would. VR headsets are going to remain pretty pricey for awhile, though
Trackmania Turbo competitions will be a part of the Electronic Sports World Cup at Paris Games Week–VR included. This is the ninth year that the Trackmania franchise has been part of the World Cup.
I’m glad that Trackmania Turbo is going to be part of PlayStation VR’s offering, since a lot of the games just aren’t to my taste. With all its loop and turns, Trackmania in VR is either going to be super awesome, or induce super puking. But it looks fun, and we’re pretty excited to find out.
