The Live for Speed developers are taking advantage of the recently released Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets with a new update which sees support for the new VR hardware.

The latest version, 0.6P, also sees lots of work completed on controller support with more controllers and racing wheels now able to set up automatically. Furthermore multiple controller setups are better supported than ever before.

“It has been an interesting month for Virtual Reality, with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets now being shipped to customers." Stated a member of the Live for Speed development team. “Live for Speed is so good to use in VR, it was our top priority to make sure it works with the new headsets and latest software.”
