Ninja Theory, responsible for titles such as Heavenly Sword and DmC: Devil May Cry, has announced that its game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, which launched last year for traditional screen, will receive next Tuesday 31 july one free upgrade for those who have the game you will add full support for Rift and Vive. As specified, the compatibility will allow you to play the award-winning original title and a number of experimental modes. In turn, it will offer complete customization of comfort options.
Below is the video they shared from the development journal:
As they share, to play in VR they recommend at least one GTX 1080, since the biggest challenge of this adaptation has been to reach 90 fps. A task for which they took 2 years optimizing all assets and the rendering engine. The team has also adapted the kinematics, combat and puzzle solving, making them work well and comfortable. With regard to the movement, and given that it is a third-person game, we will have as a frame of reference the protagonist, which we will control with gamepad.
It is not the first time that we see the company, which now belongs to Microsoft Studios, launch virtual reality products, since they already premiered in 2016 the game DEXED and recently presented the Nicodemus experience for local The Void. In this case, the development of the VR version of Hellblade was born as a curiosity of the studio to explore the possibilities of the medium, something that apparently will continue to do.
