main_11vorpX, the 3D driver that can add Oculus Rift VR support to your games, has just received a major update. Version 0.7.5 brings with it a raft of updates including full support for some of the year’s biggest games.

Well, here’s a pleasant early Christmas present for vorpX fans. We just received word from Ralf Ostertag, the developer of the 3D injection driver that can add Oculus Rift VR support to non-VR games, that vorpX has received a major update that is available now. The update should be delivered automatically to existing owners and brings with it 18 new game profiles including Far Cry 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and F1 2014.

Highlights for the new release:

  • 18 new game profiles, bringing the total number to ~150: FarCry 4, F1 2014, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and many more.
  • 25+ games added to the Game Settings Optimizer database, making it easier than ever to apply the most essential game tweaks like FOV, latency improvements etc. to many games.
  • Positional tracking unlocked for more games (and user unlockable for every Geometry 3D game)
  • 90+ bigger and smaller changes, bugfixes and general improvements.

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-WarfarevorpX is now built on Oculus’ latest SDK 0.4.4, and adds positional tracking to many games (see full change log below for the full list). It also includes a huge list of bug-fixes and a long list of Game Optimizer entries, which auto-adjust game configurations and settings (such as FOV) to be more compatible for use in VR.

We’ll have some gameplay footage of the new version in action soon. In the mean time, you can purchase vorpX right now from our portal page.
