Crystal Rift - Virtual Reality Gaming - Oculus

Crystal Rift is a VR Gaming title for Windows PC, Mac OS X, and Linux currently being developed as a first person dungeon crawler being made available for the Oculus Rift virtual reality device coming soon to consumers (and currently in the hands of developers both indie and major worldwide). More information is expected to release soon from Facebook / Oculus about their future vision, but all things appear to be running smoothly for both this device in the PC Gaming world as well as the PlayStation Morpheus for Sony PS4. In this particular video, an indie developer is speaking about his vision for Crystal Rift, a game that’s showing some potential but doesn’t have a clear roadmap just yet. Take a look and see it for yourself. For now, we will simply say that potential exists.

Virtual Reality Game Ether One Confirmed for PS4 Morpheus, Being Developed in Unreal Engine 4

Ether One

Ether One is all about being John Malkovich, well sort of. Players enter the minds of the deranged and attempt to fix their outlook on reality, heal their mental conditions, and restore peace by experiencing the storm of their mind’s eye in a first person encounter representing this metaphysical space.

Once again Unreal Engine 4 makes it possible for games to more easily bring their titles to next-gen. The Oculus Rift / PC Game Ether One was announced to be in development for PlayStation 4 today via the official development studio behind the game who said that this title will “not be on all of them”  meaning there are currently no plans to make this a 5 console game like Battlefield for example (which doesn’t always go well dev-wise).

The PlayStation Morpheus device is a virtual reality headset formally announced by Sony a few times here and there including at E3 2014. For now it seems the focus of Morpheus is to gather developers and prepare releases, with a full blown sales campaign being pushed to a later date when the public is ready see the products that will drive next-gen users into the Virtual Reality (VR Gaming) spectrum.
