The Forest VR Beta

Hey everyone,

This release adds a first pass of VR Support to The Forest. This release supports both Vive and Oculus Rift.

Some of the highlights of the VR version include: Full bow aiming. Throwing flares by breaking the tops off them. Lighting molotovs with your lighter, full 3d inventory, and 3d book, and of course chopping down trees with touch controls, but our favourite part of this release are the caves. The caves feel claustrophobic and terrifying and the creatures at scale take on a new life. 

We’re releasing this as beta as we see VR as something really exciting but also very new. We’re trying a ton of ideas with how selection works, with how cutscenes work, with our inventory and want everyone’s ideas and feedback so we can make this the best VR experience possible.

As it is beta, expect some bugs and technical issues. We’ll be updating this branch regularly. 

Note: First release does not have multiplayer support but that’s coming soon. 

Note: Some users have been experiencing issues with their controls not working when running the SteamVR Beta. Rolling back to the public version of SteamVR should correct this issue.

As always, please continue to post your bug reports and feedback in the Discussions area of the Community Hub
