Team Fortress 2 to be one of the first Oculus Rift games

Team Fortress 2

By on March 19, 2013 at 10:33 am

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.

I’m pretty excited for the Oculus Rift, that preview looked pretty cool with separated cross hairs, I wonder how it would combine with the Razer Hydra.

 

Doom schmoom,

Bring on TF2VR.
Exciting times.

 

Great that TF2 will be Riff ready in a couple of weeks, but with no consumer version of the Occulus Riff ready or a planned release date, I don’t see the take up of this being very high.

 

I’m so psyched to get my hands on one of the dev kits.
