Assetto Corsa in VR for the HTC Vive and the OSVR

The 1.13 update for the racing video game adds native OpenVR support, which means that you can now officially play Assetto Corsa with an OSVR or an HTC Vive headset in Virtual Reality. The VR support is in beta development stage for Vive but it already looks very promising

Besides the Virtual Reality support, the latest update brings much-wanted improvements to the software such as mandatory pit stop functions and reverse grids for multiplayer games. However, the Rift version is still much better, but at least they are paying attention and working hard to improve everyone’s experience.

“We’re pleased to announce that Update v1.13 is available to download on Steam NOW, featuring the Mazda MX5 NA and the Mazda 787B as FREE bonus content. But that’s not all! Update v1.13 also natively brings the long-awaited OpenVR / VIVE support (beta) and some fixes for Oculus users, as well as many new multiplayer features, including reversed grid races and mandatory pits with pit stops strategy presets!”
