The team at Tested got a chance play around with Team Fortress 2 using the upcoming Oculus Rift headset, and they recorded half an hour of gameplay for us to virtually enjoy. Not "virtually" as in we'll "almost" enjoy it, but "virtually" as in "virtual reality"-based enjoyment. Just watch the video. Kickstarter backers should receive their Oculus Rift dev kits by mid-April, with pre-orders hitting a little later in the month. For those expecting a kit, check out Valve's list of handy tricks for setting up VR in TF2.
Team Fortress 2, a multiplayer shooting game bundled with Half-Life 2: The Orange Box and Half-Life 2: The Black Box, focuses on fast team-based action. With a selection of nine distinct character classes, teams clash across a multitude of different objective-based maps, which range from capture-the-flag to escort missions. Each class plays a vital role, such as the unparalleled speed of the Scout, the relentless firepower of a Heavy or stationary turrets set up by Engineers. In addition, the stylish cel shaded graphics set it apart from the competition. Look for the game this fall.
