Project CARS will support Sony's Project Morpheus

Two years after raising over $600,000 on Kickstarter, Slightly Mad Studios' Project CARS remains in development for PC and consoles. But the studio is now turning its attention towards crossing its racing game with virtual reality, announcing that Project CARS will be among the first games to support Sony's Project Morpheus headset.

"Virtual reality is a perfect fit for racing games since the game world literally comes rushing towards you from the distance and the increased sense of depth and speed that stereoscopic vision affords you makes this incredibly real and tangible," reads a statement on Slightly Mad's WMD portal (via Joystiq). "So when you're racing you get a much better perception of distances and position and you feel far more enveloped by that world rather than just looking through a window at it."

Slightly Mad also plans to use Project Morpheus to allow drivers a full first-person view of their cockpit. Players will be able to move their heads around their cars through the use of the PlayStation Camera.

Project CARS is aiming for a November 2014 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U, and Steam OS.
