Hi my name is Mark Serrels and I live for two things. Video games and rock climbing.
Also my wife and children, but mostly the climbing and the video games.
The Climb, an upcoming VR game made by Crytek, is attempting to combine my two great loves. And they want to do it in virtual reality.
Oh my god oh my god.
We've already discussed The Climb but Crytek's latest trailer for the game is different. It's one of those fancy 360 degree YouTube videos that allows you to see everywhere. It is very cool indeed.
I am excited about The Climb and I can't wait to play it. I'm under no illusions that it will full replicate the experience of climbing — I doubt any game ever could — but The Climb looks like it's making a decent go of creating a rock climbing simulator, and I've been wanting to play a game like that for years.
For now, just enjoy these videos. This game is looking fantastic.
