Upcoming racing simulation Project Cars will support Sony's recently revealed virtual reality headset Project Morpheus, Slightly Mad Studios has announced.

"We're proud to announce today that Project CARS will be supporting Project Morpheus giving players a totally fresh and exhilarating new perspective on what it feels like to sit in the cockpit of a high-performance machine screaming around a beautiful location," explained a blog by the studio.

"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. 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."

The post explains that head-tracking via the PlayStation Camera will make it possible to move around the cockpit too.

"We think players are going to be blown away by Project Morpheus when they get their hands on it," adds Slightly Mad. "Project Cars is all about stepping into the shoes of a race driver and taking that ultimate journey towards the hall of fame. Virtual reality and Project Morpheus are going to allow you to experience every start light, every corner, every finish line now through the driver's eyes like never before."

Project Cars will be released in November for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Wii U and Steam OS.

Given Project Morpheus is likely to be launching sometime in 2015 at the earliest, don't expect Project Cars to hit PS4 in November with VR support. Slightly Mad Studios didn't offer a date at which VR support will be added to the PS4 version.
