Crytek has released the first in a new series of video developer diaries for The Climb, the upcoming virtual reality game for the Oculus Rift that lets players experience the heart-pounding adrenaline of solo free rock climbing.
Go inside Crytek to learn how a love of the real thing directly inspired the first prototypes that would eventually become The Climb. You’ll meet the team bringing this one-of-a-kind adventure to life as they discuss firsthand the process of capturing the moment-to-moment fear and excitement of clinging to a cliff hundreds of meters above the earth without a safety net. They’ll also talk about what it takes to translate that sensation into the fast-growing medium of VR.
The Climb throws players into one of the world’s most dangerous extreme sports. Scale the cliffs of stunning, real-life locations like Vietnam’s Halong Bay, recreated in hyper-realistic detail with breathtaking 3D visuals.
The Climb is being developed for Oculus Rift and will be available around the system’s launch.
