“IL-2 Sturmovik” Is Getting VR Support

IL-2 Sturmovik, the World War II Combat flight simulator, is getting VR support for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift via Open VR API, according to the latest dev update from the developer. It seems the support will be coming in March.

Another productive week has passed. We achieved a good progress in implementing VR devices support via Open VR API – HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Both devices work in our sim already – visuals work, their parameters are being adjusted and possible performance optimizations are being researched. We used a certain approach to interact with existing user interface in VR environment conveniently. We’ll start beta testing of the VR sub-system in the nearest future and it’s planned to make Open VR support available to public in March.
