Vendetta Online Announces Support For Oculus Rift

Developers of the MMORPG Vendetta Online, Guild Software, are pleased to announce their support of the Oculus Rift for the title.

“We’re thrilled to help bring our users the next level of immersion in a virtual world,” said John Bergman, founder and creative director of Guild Software.

This announcement marks the first time that an MMORPG has officially released support for the Virtual Reality headset. The presence of an Oculus Rift device will automatically be detected by the game during startup and will offer the option to enable VR mode to the player.

“For the moment, support is limited to the Windows version of our game, but we intend to expand this to other platforms with device compatibility,” said Bergman.

The release of the Oculus Rifts support to the MMO also coincides with a major update for the graphics of the game, one of many to come, most recently adding highly detailed planets and new procedural nebula.

Vendetta Online originally debuted back in 2002 and is among the longest-running 3D MMOs available today.
