Mirror’s Edge mod adds Oculus Rift support

Monday, 15th April 2013 02:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

If there is any combination more likely to result in lost lunches than first-person parkour and virtual reality, I really don’t want to try it.

This Mirror’s Edge mod, put together by Cymatic Bruce, seems at one and the same time both an incredibly elegant use of VR tech and a recipe for total disaster in the form of up-ended stomachs.

PCGamesN reports you can get this running for yourself, assuming you have a Rift headset and a PC copy of Mirror’s Edge, by installing Vierio Perception and an FOV mod.

Just by the by, everybody wants DICE to make a sequel to Mirror’s Edge, and the team is known to be experimenting with Oculus Rift. Something to think about.

    Mirror’s Edge: Barf Edition.

    But seriously, I can’t wait to get me an Occulus Rift. I’ll hold for the customer edition, but it looks like a serious addition to my gaming setup. The modding community seems to be taking off wildly for this one! :)

    I don’t really see how this could work properly. After all, there is automatic “bobbing” in the animations. I’m sure it feels weird when the virtual head moves even though your real one doesn’t.
    BUT… if that wasn’t the case, I’m sure it would be awesome.

    This is the best worst idea I’ve seen in a while. I know for a fact that it would be awesome to try AND a huge barfing session would be necessary.
