YouTuber shows what driving in GTA V using Oculus Rift DK2 feels like
Let’s be fair, shooting random people while overspeeding around in fancy cars and bikes and causing a ruckus is the essence of GTA games. That surely takes precedence over the story and the graphics for most nine out of ten times. YouTuber ‘Falandorn’ shares the same fascination and decided to incorporate his Oculus Rft DK2 to see how driving in GTA V feels like. Here’s a look.
Falandorn seems to have utilized the Oculus Rift DK2 quite well for the 360 view. He hooked up a 360 pad to his PC for bike controls. Even though GTA V isn’t quite the game that satisfies the made-for-VR category with the occasional lag, it’s still quite fun being able to flick off cops and making a run for it.
With the more recently added first person view the game already offered players a new perspective, but this somewhat contributes more to the aspect of immersion that is key to any title out there. It might not accurately capture the same feeling as riding a bike in real life but that’s a minor gripe.
What do I need to play GTA V with Oculus Rift DK2?
That is the million dollar question here, isn’t it? Not million dollars exactly in case you already own GTA V, an Oculus Rift DK2 and have about 30 pounds to spare. Simply search for Vorpx on Google and download it.
If you wish for your game to mimic the same settings as Falandrorn’s, use Letterbox 2 settings with strength upto 0.5 along with 0.2 seperation. Falandorn also suggests using non-cinema mode and zooming out to about 0.7 such that it’s marginally letterboxed.
Have fun playing Grand Theft Auto V the way it is meant to be played..with an Oculus Rift DK2!
