Valve recently announced the next big thing for their extremely successful multiplayer FPS Team Fortress 2: an experimental Virtual Reality mode. Making use of the Oculus Rift, Valve aims to offer a level of immersion that Joe Ludwig (at Valve) said they have been “blown away by”. At the time of the announcement support for the Oculus Rift had already been integrated; unfortunately the only people who actually have the device are those Kicksarter supporters who contributed enough to get themselves a dev kit. The rest of us will have to wait to plug into the Matrix until at least May 2013, when the Rift is expected to ship.
