Project Cars will be compatible with Project Morpheus, according to Slightly Mad Studios.

The news was announced on the Project Cars development site.

“Here at Slightly Mad Studios we’re always striving for new ways to immerse the player in the race experience beyond the couch, the controller, and the television<‘ reads the announcement. “Therefore, building upon all the techniques and features we’ve pioneered in our previous games to simulate a sensation of speed, distance perception, changing focal points, and physically-accurate cockpit and helmet views.

“We’re proud to announce today that Project Cars will be supporting Project Morpheus giving players a new perspective on what it feels like to sit in the cockpit of a high-performance machine.”

The firm goes on to note that virtual reality is a “perfect fit for racing games” as the players is provided with a much better perception of distances and position.

Project Cars releases on PC, PlayStation 4, Steam OS, Wii U, and Xbox One sometime in November.

    Nice. I wouldn’t have expected so many third parties to confirm the implementation of Project Morpheus, so soon. Good news.

    Right now, everything depends on how Sony is going to develop their VR tech. If they just release something like PS Move, then it’s fucked. However, if they go the PS4 route, Project Morpheus may very well end up being the best of commercial VR.
    People lament PS4 for being lame, conservative and not enough forward looking but they miss the smartest, most forward looking and most important about it:

    PS4 was shaped by 3rd party developers and their feedback.

    Many of its features and design decisions were based on demands from game developers. Instead of focusing on gimmicks (Kinect, Gamepad) or ivory tower design (Wii U), they looked at all the criticism and made the system that devs wanted. Innovation for the sake of innovation is stupid AND harmful.
