HTC Vive owners have been patiently awaiting support for the device in ADR1FT over the past few months, and their wait is soon to draw to a close.
Adam Orth of game developer Thee One Zero confirmed that Vive support should be arriving “this week or next.” Orth said as much in reply to one fan on the game’s Facebook page. Though the Steam listing for the game shows HTC Vive support, Orth wrote “there’s no way to not show the Vive logo under VR support.” If you’re waiting for implementation to go live, then, you still have a few days ahead of you.
Previously, we reported that the Vive version of the game wouldn’t support motion controls in the traditional sense, but may make use of the feature in some way. ADR1FT is a first-person story-driven experience in which players are cast as the sole survivor of a horrific accident on-board a space station. You’ll explore the remains of the site, gathering oxygen as you drift through zero gravity. Despite stunning visuals, our own Joe Durbin wasn’t blown away by the game. In his review, he pointed to poor VR implementation and a disappointing story, scoring it 6/10.
The game went live on March 28th alongside the Oculus Rift with full support for the device. It was around this time that Three One Zero confirmed HTC Vive support would also be coming later down the line. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be launching this week on July 15th. The developer hasn’t yet confirmed if this version of the game could possibly support the PlayStation VR headset, which is due to launch on October 13th. An Xbox One version of the game is also scheduled for later down the line.
Keep your eyes open for that Vive support in the coming days.
