Virtual reality (VR) developers and enthusiasts are eager to see how the technology will integrate with a range of videogame genres in the near future. With that in mind, the team at ESTsoft has today announced that its upcoming massively multiplayer onlie role-playing (MMORPG) CABAL II will be following the likes of Mortal Online and Life in Rome in adding support for the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). The title is currently in development for PC using Crytek’s CryEngine 3.
Following on from CABAL Online, CABAL II builds on the original’s 3D MMORPG gameplay. Oculus Rift support is expcted to be added to the Korean language version of the title this month. Players will be able to simply switch support on to experience the title’s fictional world of Nevareth in VR. Having released in Lorea on December 2012, the title is currently being optimised for North America and Europe, though there isn’t any word on a possible release date right now.
“Oculus Rift support has been included to enable players to further immerse themselves into the stunning graphical world of CABAL II.” ESTsoft said of Oculus Rift’s inclusion. “Constant updates and enhancements are scheduled in the future to realize the full potential of this technology, including a specialized control-UI specifically for the Oculus Rift. This will provide a more realistic and seamlessly immersive play experience.”
VRFocus will continue to follow CABAL II going forward, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s development.
