rFactor 2 – DX11 VR Screenshots Posted

Although Studio 397 could not make the initial release date of Q1 2017, progress is still being made on maybe the most important rFactor 2 update ever. It is set to release on May 1, 2017 and will add a new User Interface and Virtual Reality as well as DirectX 11 support.

Yesterday, Studio 397 posted two preview screenshots taken directly from a VR headset on its Facebook page.

The first one was taken in the AC Cobra with the rising/ setting sun in the background. The image showcases the new ambient lighting effects, which were discussed in the latest Roadmap Update, very well.

The second one shows the Matsusaka Circuit from the cockpit of an open-wheel car. While this screenshot was taken in the afternoon, with a bright sun and a cloudless sky in the background, we can still see the new ambient lighting effects working and the significant graphical improvements that were possible thanks to DirectX 11.

Fingers crossed that Studio 397 will make the promised release date.
