Adrenaline and adventure collide in Crytek’s Oculus Rift Title, “The Climb”
Scale breathtaking cliffs around the globe in Crytek’s all-new VR feast
Frankfurt am Main (Germany) December 15, 2015 – Feel the unrivaled adrenaline rush of free solo rock climbing and encounter the majesty of nature like never before in The Climb – a new virtual reality game from Crytek – coming exclusively to Oculus.
The Climb invites thrill-seekers to experience the ultimate in extreme sports by going beyond the point of no return and scaling deadly cliff faces unaided. The game boasts hyper-realistic climbing locations from around the world, and players will discover the freedom of gaming with the Rift using either an Xbox One controller or Oculus Touch controllers as they soak up their awe-inspiring surroundings.
Oculus Head of Worldwide Studios, Jason Rubin said: “Crytek is renowned for leveraging their CRYENGINE tech to create beautiful, immersive games. Their early VR demos really captured public imagination, and to see their ideas come to life with Rift is incredible and not to be missed. The Climb is a beautiful combination of art and thrill that’s bringing an entirely new level of adventure gaming to Rift.”
Also commenting on the collaboration, Founder, CEO & President of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, said: “Gaming has always given us the opportunity to place ourselves in otherwise impossible scenarios, and VR technology such as the Rift makes us feel present in those scenarios like never before. The Climb invites players to experience the intensity of one of the world’s most dangerous sports, and they’ll truly feel the thrill of being thousands of meters above the ground with nothing but their skill and a few precarious handholds to rely on.”

Once you get immersed in what you're doing. By the end of it I really saw nothing wrong with a lot Poly Lara running around a realisticly rendered world at all. (1 Hour ago)
It's maintained the realistic proportions and movements of modern Lara. But combined them with an aesthetic that was classic (albiet polygonal) it's weird how you stop noticing those visual diffences (1 Hour ago)
But it's still more recognisably "tomb raider". I played half of rise of tomb raider with the classic polygonal Lara model and that was a good compromise. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: I think there's still a bit of a jarring visual thing between the silicone sex doll proportions of Lara and the realistically realised world she's running around in. (1 Hour ago)
SFV is a very good game. I'm glad Capcom stuck with it despite the rocky start. (1 Hour ago)
