If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to climb a cliff face, The Climb promises to give you “that feeling.”

Watch on YouTube

One of the first games to be announced as exclusive to Oculus Rift, the virtual reality title simulates a solo rock climbing experience.

In the developer video, Crytek discusses the inspiration behind the first prototypes and how it captured the experience of clinging to cliffs in real-world locations such as Vietnam’s Halong Bay.

The Climb will be available during Rift’s launch period, but is without a release date. Check out the official website for more information.

In March, the first set Oculus Rift shipments will go out, with more units shipping through July.
