As I often do these days when a new game comes out, I tested Asgard’s Wrath in my Pimax 5K+ to see if it will work correctly and oh man I am so glad I did! This game seems as if it were made to be played in the wide FOV and high resolution that the Pimax headsets have to offer!
I have been playing Asgard’s Wrath for about a week pre-release in my Rift S but since it was still under embargo at the time I couldn’t share this news about it working in other headsets. Now that the game has been released I’m happy to say that it works great! No need for parallel projections or anything else to be turned on in PiTool and the frame rates were really good with my I7 7700K, 16GB ram and 1080ti. I was also pleasantly surprised that the Vive wands I was using seemed to map very well to the in game controllers with all the buttons being exactly where I would have wanted them.
Overall as I say in the video It really feels like Asgard’s Wrath is native to the Pimax headsets and the visuals it delivers in the 5K+ combined with the fact that the game just makes you feel like a completely powerful at times is a complete home run! This game is for sure one of my all time favorite VR experiences of 2019 and is so much better in a high resolution and wide FOV headset!
