Crowfall promises VR support in exchange for 15,000 backers

Bet you didn’t see this coming. As it ticks down its final Kickstarter campaign week, Crowfall has added a tantalizing stretch goal if the project passes 15,000: The team will add support for virtual reality to the game.

“Thanks to Unity 5’s native support of Oculus (and we’re hoping Vive at some point!) we are excited to say that the possibility is in our grasp,” the team posted this morning. Crowfall’s Kickstarter just recently passed 13,000 backers and has six days to go.

The team also posted a couple of videos showing early Knight animation and the creation of new Duelist art, both of which you can watch after the break.

Golden_Girl I don’t know.  Does hating on a game you have no interest in add that much to your life?

Damonvile breetoplay Sartinme Leilonii Tierless StiviRibar It’s not really a give us more money SG, it’s more of a give us more promotion SG– It’s based on the number of backers, so just throwing more at it wont do it.

Not bad as such – But wish they’d have included something meaningful for the game, such as another world ruleset that everyone who plays can potentially benefit from. VR is cool and all, but for the near future at least with limited pickup of the tech it just seems like a waste of resources to only cater for a potentially small segment of the games supporters.

I can picture it now, your peacefully mining a node then… BLAM a 3D sword skewers you from behind and bursts out your chest with an epic geyser of blood, your blood!
YOU FLING YOUR 10 LB VR HEADSET OFF IN DISGUST, accidentally knocking your favorite EVE online
battle-cruiser model off its display, for a quick moment you stare at
its broken hull reliving fragmented moments of the horrific defeat at
B-R5RB you suffered at the hands of Chinese gold farming bots *THE RAGE IS TO MUCH* 
There
is only way to move forward…from that day on you devote every waking
hour to absolute victory…THE CROW THRONE WILL BE YOURS muhahahah!

Leilonii VR’s always going to be a niche thing.
