Valve’s flagship war-themed hat simulator Team Fortress 2 has been revealed to be gearing up for Oculus Rift support, with a VR patch expected shortly.
“This is a mode that everybody who has a Rift dev kit and access to Team Fortress 2 will be able to play, just on public and in the same servers that everybody else is playing in,” revealed Valve programmer Joe Ludwig to Endgadget.
Mac and Linux players will miss out however, until the Oculus SDK for those platforms is supplied to the company. “We don’t have a Mac or Linux SDK from Oculus quite yet,” said Ludwig, “but once we get those, we’ll get it ported over to those other platforms.” A patch for PC players is expected “sometime in the next couple of weeks” that will bring Oculus support.
Meanwhile, Oculus Rift’s site has revealed that the goggles will not ship with a VR-enabled copy of DOOM 3 as promised due to it not being finished by id Software in time. More details here.
