Crytek Add Oculus Touch and More to The Climb

If you’ve invested in VR hardware, then it’s likely you’ve been enjoying Crytek’s VR experience The Climb. Now Crytek has finished the work on the latest update for the game, and have released it as a free expansion for all VR rock climbing enthusiasts.

The Climb now has support for Oculus Touch, which is a pretty huge deal given the subject matter. If that’s not enough, you’ll also find a brand new environment to explore! The game was already pretty darn exciting to play, so long as you’re not scared of heights. However, you’ll now be able to reach out with actual hand movements, swing from ledge to ledge and more, which sounds a lot more immersive.

The new update adds the “North” settings, which is a fantastic looking new environment which was inspired by the Arctic circle and surround areas such as Iceland; you can check that out in the trailer below.

From now until December 31st, The Climb will be included in the Oculus Touch Launch Bundle, which features five Oculus Rift games at great discounts. The whole bundle costs $89.99 and gives you the chance to get more hands on with what Oculus Touch can offer.

“The update allows you to play all of The Climb’s game modes with Oculus Touch. The Climb will also be updated with a range of separate leaderboards for this new way to play with these intuitive new controllers. In addition to full support for Touch, we’re also adding a brand new environment called North which can be seen in our new video. Inspired by the Arctic Circle and areas near it like Iceland, this new location is around the size of our Canyon location and includes two new bouldering challenges plus three difficulty settings. Get ready to scale new heights in an icy wilderness where you’ll need to keep your cool as you climb through ice caves and plot your route up dramatic cliffs.

    Hey. This is good news. Kaa I only found out that the Oculus Touch Launch Bundle appeared, I immediately made an order. I want to tell you honestly, I am delighted with this thing. I am a big fan of virtual reality and everything connected with it. I really liked The Climb, I think this is the best I’ve ever seen for VR. I tried and Okulus and Vive and even PSVR. Most of all I like the Oculus, because all the hottest games appear there and are made for it. Although PSVR is also a good thing, but everything needs some work. Did you know that, a quote from Wikipedia: “The exact origins of virtual reality are disputed, partly because of how difficult it has been to formulate a definition for the concept of an alternative existence.[5] The development of perspective in Renaissance Europe created convincing depictions of spaces that did not exist, in what has been referred to as the “multiplying of artificial worlds”.[6] Other elements of virtual reality appeared as early as the 1860s. Antonin Artaud took the view that illusion was not distinct from reality, advocating that spectators at a play should suspend disbelief and regard the drama on stage as reality.[7] The first references to the more modern concept of virtual reality came from science fiction”, source -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_reality. Good luck!
