Crysis gets the VR touch

For years, Crysis has set the benchmark for amazing graphics. Now, thanks to modder Nathan Andrews, Crysis is going to be setting the benchmark once again, but for a whole new reason. Nathan has made a VR mod which can be used with the Oculus Rift headset, something that Nathan already achieved with Half-Life 2. Nathan says:

“I ported the Half-Life 2 VR mod that I’ve been working on over to Crysis and Crysis Wars (and also Cryengine 3 if anyone is interested in building a game from the ground up with VR support),”

Unfortunately, the mod isn’t finished as he needs to add crosshair tracking and iron-sights to improve aiming, but it is still an impressive achievement considering it’s a lone modder undertaking this project. Just check out this video of the Oculus at work:

After seeing the progress Nathan is making I’m more than excited. Infact, i’m more excited about this than I was with the Sony reveal. I think the phrase everyone is looking for right now is definitely “OH MY GOD!!”
