Team Fortress 2 Looks Pretty Fun on the Oculus Rift and Omni Treadmill

Team Fortress 2

Team Fortress 2 can be a pretty fast-paced game with tons of running, gunning, and hat-collecting. And now that Virtuix has released a video of the game being played through the Oculus Rift and on one of their Omni treadmills, we’re looking forward to running around frantically in real life.

The video shows a player using the combination of the Oculus Rift’s virtual reality headset with Virtuix’s multi-directional treadmill, the Omni. What ensues is an immersive experience in which the player goes through the match in the first-person perspective of a BLU Soldier.

He can aim by looking around, gun peripheral in hand, and then use the Omni to move his character. Again, this setup is meant for immersion, not necessarily for performance, so you won’t see any rocket jumps or any fancy maneuvers. Still, it’s a pretty interesting demo of emerging video game technologies that might soon become part of every gaming household.

Watch the video below and let us know what you think about this virtual reality experience. If you cross your eyes just right while watching, you can combine the images and pretend like you’re playing! But this kind of hurts and feels really awkward, so, on second thought, don’t do it.
