Back in October potential PlayStation VR owners were ecstatic when Crytek announced the exclusive PlayStation VR title Robinson the Journey. PC gamers who are somewhat accustomed to special treatment from Crytek were feeling left out in the dark. This week however Crytek announced a new Oculus exclusive title The Climb.
The Climb is not too different from Crytek's VR Tech demos which feature rock climbing such as Back to Dinosaur Island.
The Climb aims to allow the player to feel the adrenaline rush of free solo rock climbing and to enjoy the majesty of nature like never before. The Climb will allow you to experience the ultimate in extreme sports by going beyond the point of no return and scaling deadly cliff faces unaided. The game boasts hyper-realistic climbing locations from around the world, and players will discover the freedom of gaming with the Rift using either an Xbox One controller or Oculus Touch controllers.
From someone who is somewhat scared of climbing (incident from childhood) I look forward to playing this as it is guaranteed to bring on sweaty palms!
The Climb will be available in 2016 following the release of the Oculus Rift in Q1 2016.
