Hawken Supporting Oculus Rift

Another game has signed on with the Oculus Rift.

Hawken, the mech title, will support it when it comes out on Dec. 12.

“Hawken is perfect for Oculus because its environments are well-suited for the level of visual density and distances you’re looking it,” Meteor Entertainment’s Mark Long said. “The shapes that are close and far away lend themselves well to 3D. When you’re in a typical first-person shooter, you’re a slave to the direction your weapon is pointing, which is unnatural. Being in a Mech, this offers a more realistic virtual reality experience.”

Long added that implementing Oculus Rift support was also cheap to do.
