Miner Wars 2081 Occulus Rift Support

The Miner Wars Website has news that Miner Wars 2081 will support the upcoming Occulus Rift headset when this upcoming Descent-style shooter is released, saying this may allow support of other future VR equipment as well, and they are also considering adding "FreeTracking" to allow head tracking via webcam. Here's word:

With Head-Tracking and the addition of Stereo Displays compatibilty we expect players to be able to experience a richer Miner Wars 2081 immersion. We'll be polishing the cockpits in places we thought people would never look, and you may start using the side windows tactically in ways that we never initially intended! We feel this project is perfect for our type of game, and it will bring the six degrees of freedom feel that virtual reality units are traditionally attracted to! So we're stocking up on our whips, forcing our 3D artists to model things behind and under the 'viewport'.

When and how much is a Oculus Rift, love all this support but we have very little on the product, right?

All we know is the development kit version costs $300. The rest is TBD.

/shrug 3 24 inch monitors in nvid surround do the job pretty well in terms of immersion, one hopes they bother to add full support for that...
