We have to be aware of how we live now more than ever. What if these new gaming systems could allow us to interact in an immersive, real life, engaging way? Well, Luminosity has taken a step in this direction with the creation of its first game of the year, Luminosity, by adding a touch sensor to the headset.
So, to clarify, it’s not a gaming peripheral, it is the Oculus Rift itself. And it’s not a new concept, Oculus first launched its first game, Rift, which was the second VR headset by HTC. The company is developing a second version of the headset, with the intent to launch in 2017 and later in 2018.
This has been a great year of VR gaming has provided us with another opportunity, with the launch of more than a handful of new games, including a lot of first-person shooter titles. We were blown away by the first game, Titanfall 2 by Respawn, who went far beyond the game’s traditional FPS elements into a totally new multiplayer mode. This is just the tip of the iceberg, and the reason why the genre is so popular.
In celebration of VR gaming, Luminosity Games is unveiling a pair of goggles, the only goggles that offer full sight of the wearer, that offer full field of vision — 360 degrees — with each eye only seeing 25 times per second rather than 50. These are the goggles featured in its first game in 2013, Luminosity, where the creators allowed the developers and gamers of the gaming platform to play the game while wearing them on their faces.
