    I for one cannot wait to get back into City 17 and not only that but this time enjoy it in VR. From the small amount of footage I've seen, it looks like it is going to be a ton of fun and should look stunning. It makes me wonder how the title will end up shaping future VR titles - the lessons other devs learn from it and all that fun.

    Who else is planning on playing? Are you buying a headset to play or did you already own one? Are you waiting for reviews before taking the VR dive?

    It's not Half-Life 3, but it might as well be. I figured there would never be another Half-Life game again! 

    I just upgraded my computer, and could totally play this now if I got a VR headset... honestly kind of tempting...

    I cant understand this new VR trend. I don't like.  I am looking forward for another Half Life ofcourse.

    Hope you can still play it without the VR.

    VR tech still too expensive, sadly.

    VR only, unfortunately. The game's mechanics are built around having it and they're doing stuff that wouldn't really be possible with a keyboard and mouse outside of "press F to do this entire action sequence"

    I was hoping for some sort of mod to allow you to simulate the VR tech using two mouses. I don't think its too far fetched really.

    Guess I'll have to wait until VR tech gets reasonably priced in the market.
