Crytek Presents a VR Adventure

The VR experience has barely started but Crytek, a VR game maker from Germany, has gotten out in front big time with this amazing new first person adventure called “The Climb”. For those who would like to rock climb but for one reason or another can’t, this game fills the void.

Oculus Head of Worldwide Studios, Jason Rubin said: “Crytek is renowned for leveraging their CRYENGINE tech to create beautiful, immersive games. Their early VR demos really captured public imagination, and to see their ideas come to life with Rift is incredible and not to be missed. The Climb is a beautiful combination of art and thrill that’s bringing an entirely new level of adventure gaming to Rift.”

Also commenting on the collaboration, Founder, CEO & President of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, said: “Gaming has always given us the opportunity to place ourselves in otherwise impossible scenarios, and VR technology such as the Rift makes us feel present in those scenarios like never before. The Climb invites players to experience the intensity of one of the world’s most dangerous sports, and they’ll truly feel the thrill of being thousands of meters above the ground with nothing but their skill and a few precarious handholds to rely on.”

Personally, I can’t wait to get hands on with this fascinating new game to give you a real hands-on review.

Below is the Press Release from the company.
