HTC and McLaren Launch Special Edition VR Headset With New Racing Sim

Interesting …

After forming a partnership back in May of this year, HTC and McLaren are now seeing their cooperation pay off with the launch of a Limited-Edition HTC VIVE Pro headset ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix that takes place this weekend. The overall goal for this launch is to give fans a “unique experience that can’t be had watching on television” according to Alvin Wang Graylin, HTC’s China president. The racing simulation released with the headset is rFactor 2 Mclaren Edition, which is based on rFactor 2 and was produced by Studio 397.

This particular version allows users to race classic cars from the British team’s history. As expected it sports a full day-night cycle along with dynamically varying weather, which pairs well with the “real-road” technology that changes grip characteristics as more cars drive on the track. The most prominent new feature to be added with this release is the inclusion of mixed class road racing. The game is available now but requires a Viveport subscription.
