if the experience in vr is good on the pimax i will definatly buy this game.
i played f1 2020 with vorpx and i was so much faster driving in vr but it really sucked because you had to dial all the graphics down for it to work properly

Will I buy this? Don’t have enough info to tell yet, if the VR implementation is enough to draw me in.
For the amount and type of F1 driving I do. I will likely pass having enough access to F1 with in Assetto Corsa to scratch that itch.

Hope to perform well

I’m surprised it worked at all.

I’ve had zero luck getting codemasters game to hook in Vorpx at all.

First time in history we wont have to see the obligatory “NO VR = NO BUY” thread under Steam Discussions.

Even the mainstream is covering this for some reason. :man_shrugging:

I will buy and test it out for a couple hours and if I don’t like what I see, will refund for sure. Nothing can beat Automobilista 2 in VR imo.

but doesn’t f122 offer something more as a fan of F1 than ams2 considering its a dedicated F1 game?

Kind of how no game can replace Dirt Rally when it comes to rallying.

Anyway either way I hope it has a good implementation of VR and hope it sells well. For years they were slammed with “No VR no Buy”

it would stick if they finally bucked the trend only for all the VR guys not to buy it.

Maybe the next WRC game can finally become a Legit sim and follow suit.

Hell even Grid and Dirt 6 even Forza and NFS should add it.

Hell even Mario Kart I just don’t GAF. :rofl:

If anyone can do a good job it should be Codemasters. While not always my go to for certain times of racing they have the pedigree and years of experience.

DR1 was a great successor to Richard Burns and was best we had for rally for years. While the VR implementation in DR2 is a little fugly graphically in places, it has ffb and physics that are as close to RL as we have come thus far.
It will be how well they do the f1 VR graphics that likely separates the men from the boys.

As one who has never driven a F1 car in RL and do not expect I ever will, my attempt to duplicate some sense of what it would be like started when Williams worked with IRacing to duplicate their car. When my lack of commitment to league racing moved me away from subscription racing, I managed to near duplicate the feel Williams gave us in IRacing with the FW31 by VRC in Assetto Corsa. How close these cars are to RL I’ll never know, but they’re real close to each other as far as I can tell.

What make AMS2 unique that other racing games don’t have is the FFB and physics. It drives and react like a real car in VR. All the bumping, crashing, grinding, turning, weight shifting are just what you would expect when you drive a real car. I don’t get this from Pcars, ACC. So, I would not be surprise if F1 22 aren’t much of a difference since they’re coming from the same creators from Pcars.

That’s a matter of preference.

Personally, I find iracing’s physics most convinving and love the FFB on ACC.

Looks nice and clean. That and the apparent scale could be exciting. To be fair, until we see through the lens it isn’t a VR video :smiley:

If the VR implementation is at least as good as it was in their rally game, its a for sure buy for me. Ya, other games will likely have better physics and the like, but I’d prefer something that has all the current F1 tracks in one easy package (so no iracing or ACC due to cost or complexity). I can play those games when I want realism, but really I just want a basic f1 experience that lets me learn a track prior to a race weekend and that looks good in VR.

I’m guessing we will still likely have to use parallel projection, but it’ll be interesting to see how much we can get the resolution up in f1 2022, given that past F1 games have been desinged with consoles in mind and so high framerates on PC seems to be easier to achieve than with other games that were PC centric in their development.
