If you wish to step into the cockpit of the fastest AG racing ships ever built, you can play Redout on many different VR systems for PC.
Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Razer OSVR were the first headsets we supported from the get-go, back in the days. If you haven’t had the chance to try it yet, you totally should – but don’t take our word for it.
Now, thanks to the fine folks at RiftCat, you can also play Redout in VR with a mobile headset by using VRidge. This neat piece of software consists in a desktop application and a mobile application that, when connected, emulate an HTC Vive headset.
There’s two reasons we are writing about this. One, VR is usually expensive and having a “try before you buy” or a cheaper option is always welcome – that’s why, instead of asking for money beforehand and then eventually going through a refund process, Redout offers a demo. With a mobile VR system you can play around and have fun with VR without necessarily breaking the bank.
Second reason, RiftCat is a young company born from a group of students, like we were when we started 34BigThings, and that’s already a good reason to check out their product.
Only Android phones are currently supported, but we know iOS devices are on the roadmap. Declutter your phone and go grab a cardboard, if you haven’t got one already: there’s plenty of cool stuff besides Redout that you can play (Subnautica, Elite Dangerous, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, just to name 3…)
