‘The Climb 2’ Coming to Oculus Quest This Holiday Season, Trailer Here


Crytek today revealed at Facebook 2020 that The Climb (2016) is getting a sequel, and it’s slated to arrive on the Quest platform this holiday season.

Dubbed The Climb 2, the first-person rock climbing game is said to let you explore “a new city setting and exhilarating new maps with breathtaking views.”

More from the game’s description:

Ascend grand peaks, navigate vast caves, climb skyscrapers, and discover hidden shortcuts as you find your path to the top. Compete with friends and conquer leaderboards in asynchronous multiplayer modes. From exploring mountain environments to scaling urban settings, feel the rush of climbing without ropes, and experience breathtaking vistas as you scale new heights.

Here’s all of the screenshots that were shared with Road to VR so far:

Originally launched as an Oculus Rift exclusive in 2016, The Climb dazzled with detailed visuals and kept us grasping for the next ledge thanks to interesting gameplay mechanics.

We gave it a [3/5] in our initial 2016 review, although that was admittedly before it had Touch controls and true 360 room-scale tracking.  The game has since made its way to Oculus Quest.

Neither Facebook nor Crytek have mentioned whether The Climb 2 is also headed to Rift, so for now it’s probably best to consider it a Quest platform exclusive.

    I really liked the idea of climb but when i played it, it was pretty boring more like a side game. I’m not sure climbing a skyscraper will make it more interesting. Also the Immersion was ruined by the feeling of standing on a solid floor.

    Man, I wished they would update Robinson The Journey to take advantage of newer headsets and certainly some extra care to different controllers (and the latest cry-engine enhancements). It’s still one of the better VR games I’ve played.

    Quest exclusive = Rift Discontinued, meaning it will work on the Rift + Link which = Captured on PC.
