Oculus, Vive, Virtual Reality Support

I genuinely just wanna put on the headset and have the awareness of being immersed in Space Engineers.. The headset support would be my number one go to request for this game. The Free-look is already so nice in game, and even works on foot. When we're rooted to a console or seat We could enable leaning or looking around so you could peek over screens or around support pillars. A lot of people will probably bring up controls but Personally I could use the keyboard and mouse in VR and be pretty happy with it.


With the xbox Version along the way I imagine Keen has already gone through the paces of adapting controller support. But if they ever took the time to work out a sort of TiltBrush style toolbar or a pipboy kind of UI for controllers that'd be insane! At the end of the day though, We just wanna sit at our computer desk and dawn on a headset to look around.

Holy jeez, out of everything. You would expect the suggestion to have alot more attention. I mean, I would absolutely fan-boy space engineers in VR, even go out and purchase a headset myself if I heard SE was getting some virtual reality attention fit in.

I'm not sure how difficult or challenging it would be to implement an official support branch for VR, however if you were to ask me, it would likely bring alot more attention to the game alongside that. Even just freelooking would be a hell of a step forward for Space engineers.

Would freak the heck out over it. :p

That is also something I would love to see. I cannot even imagine how this game would be fun in VR.

Already tried different things with TriDef, but not much luck there 😔

They haven't even fix AMD problem. And admitted it glitch was in the alpha beta of Frostbite. Breaking the game alot players like my self. Aboadon ME long before for being complete like miniing wars. You want them to release a VR version.

This company is starting it end run of SE and breaking before they leave it to die.

So now full controller support is available, next should be VR. One small step for Keen, one giant leap for VR enthusiasts.

I would come back playing SE again if VR support would be available. Even imperfect one for testing. Even just a VR view with no or incomplete hand controls. Come on Keen, you can do it! You have a working prototype in the code base, it just wasn't perfect. Please make it available optionally.

Yup, a simple VR view with no hand control would be already cool!

VR support for Space Engineers would be epic! And what with the performance update coming this game would be way out from anything out there currently and coming. Just being able to play in VR would practically reinvent the game, and that's not getting into combat... The VR enthusiasts wouldn't hesitate either, and I can't see how that's bad since this game seems to be tucked away into it's own little pocket of a community right now.

Absolutely, now that Half Life Alyx is out, Space Engineers VR would be the next big thing!
