Hello Games, developer of the upcoming No Man’s Sky, has once again teased support for virtual reality (VR) compatibility in the title. The developer recently posted a collection of clips of the team using an Oculus Rift VR headset on social networks. The tease comes just over 2 weeks after the team first suggested that VR support for the first-person experience would be included.
“Received our new VR headsets today! So excite!” studio founder Sean Murray posted on Twitter. “Putting gaming laptop into backpack, with headset attached, so we can run about WIRELESSLY.” This was followed with a tweet showing a developer standing at the top of some stairs (above) with the headset on. “Problem! There are less steps in the stairs in this VR demo, than there are in our office. Will probably be fine.”
The developer then listed a number of Vine clips, such as the one below, showing the same player using the Oculus Rift, presumably around the Hello Games’ offices. Nothing specifically states that No Man’s Sky will support VR, but the team certainly is hinting as much.
Another 2 clips can be seen below. Hello Games attracted a lot of attention with No Man’s Sky when it debuted in December 2013. Little is known about the title other than it being a procedurally generated experience in which players explore alien worlds. The title is being developed with console in mind. Could this also come to PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus VR headset? VRFocus will continue to follow the title and report back with all the latest.
