According to a Steam Community put up the replace is being delivered by the use of a “broad compatibility patch” that “permits non-VR play in addition to including enhanced assist for Windows Mixed Reality headsets.”

For a sport that’s so intimately tied to its hand-presence and movement management assist, I can definitely say I’m shocked. When I reviewed the sport I famous how inefficient and clunky enjoying with a gamepad felt so I can’t think about enjoying outdoors of VR will likely be anyplace close to as immersive and intuitive. However, on the intense facet, maybe this would be the inflow of latest gamers the sport wants to remain lively when it comes to multiplayer.

As acknowledged, the patch additionally provides assist for Windows VR headsets, which is nice to see, because the lengthy record of producers for that platform will very doubtless see robust market penetration over the subsequent 12 months as a result of decrease price and lack of exterior monitoring sensors.

We’ve reached out to Ubisoft to see if this patch is coming to PS4 as properly to allow non-PSVR play or if it’s restricted to the PC model solely. We’ve additionally requested about whether or not or not gamers can restrict matchmaking to only VR gamers or simply non-VR gamers for function parity because the sport already has cross-platform multiplayer.
