Slightly Mad Studios' upcoming racing game, known as Project Cars, will be one of the first titles available for Sony's Project Morpheus virtual reality tech.

"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," said the developer.

"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."

"Project Morpheus also allows you to see detail you might have otherwise missed … Via our interior cameras not only can you look around the cockpit and see everything from a first-person perspective, but using head-tracking via the PlayStation Camera you can also now move around the cockpit too, peer closer at some intricate detail or turn around and look out of the back window."

Sony announced the VR headset during this year's GDC. A release date and price point has yet to be confirmed. Project Cars will launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox One and Wii U in November.
