Fly the Red Bull Air Race in VR with Oculus Rift support

Try some first person flying in VR

RedBull

Developers Slightly Mad Studios of Project CARS fame has partnered with Red Bull to create a new Air Race PC game that’s free to play. Currently in beta, the game features Oculus Rift support means you can immerse yourself in the pilot experience and fly up to 425 km/h while taking turns that’d put up to 10G forces through your body as you acceleration and maneuver through the obstacle course.

Red Bull Air Race is its first (we hope of many) free-to-play PC game. “The Game” was announced at Gamescom in Cologne today. The game takes you to authentic locations, which emulate where the real motorsport series takes place around the world.

The Game boasts cutting-edge graphics and gameplay, which allows the ultimate motorsport series to continue in full glory and be just as breathtaking on PC. The Game also invites players to hook up Oculus Rift and experience the same high-speed dynamics and nail-biting action of the global motorsport. With no other flying game quite like it, The Game also promises no gated content through advertising, ensuring fair treatment among players, who do not have to pay for advancement.

For those who aren’t lucky enough to have a VR rig at home, you can use your smartphone as a gamepad, and control your plane on the big screen.

The Red Bull Air Race World Championship is currently underway across the globe. Officially endorsed by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and with speeds of up to 370kph, the world air sports federation, Red Bull Air Race is the ultimate motorsport series in the sky and now, a free to play PC game with The Game.
