Team Fortress 2 To Be First Official Oculus Rift Title

With Doom 3 no longer supporting the Oculus Rift when it launches next month, Valve have stepped into the breach with their evergreen shooter.

Valve programmer Joe Ludwing told Engadget that a new 'VR Mode' will be added in the next couple of weeks, and made public shortly thereafter. "This is a mode that everybody who has a Rift dev kit and access to Team Fortress 2 will be able to play, just on public and in the same servers that everybody else is playing in," he explained. "We don't have a Mac or Linux SDK from Oculus quite yet, but once we get those, we'll get it ported over to those other platforms."

The Oculus Rift was successfully Kickstarted last year, and has been blowing our minds ever since. Sadly, despite id Software's John Carmack wholeheartedly supporting the headset, Doom 3's Rift support simply won't be ready to launch - prompting the creators to issue extra rewards to potentially disgruntled backers.

Dev kits are currently with developers, while backers will start to receive commercial units in April.

Oh, just in case you don't know, Team Fortress 2 is probably still the best online FPS on the market. Except that it's free.

Alice Madness Returns would be epic.
