    I don't know if this is the right forum for this post or if it should better be under "News", because the game has not been released yet. So please feel free to move it.

    I am following the news about Ultrawings for quite some time, and today I found this new video which goes beyond the original half-minute teaser:
    http://www.ign.com/videos/2017/02/01/ultrawings-vr-that-makes-you-feel-like-youre-flying

    I read somewhere that the release date will probably be in early February and I can't wait to try it, because it is the first flight simulator making use of the Oculus Touch controllers.

    I hope that one of you geniuses will create a plugin soon after the game is available. :)

    that's an impressive concept but graphically not enough realistic

    Well, maybe the lack in graphical realism will be compensated by the gain in immersion when using the Oculus Touch controllers. I will definitely give it a try.

    Yes, I already did some time ago before I learned that the release is still pending. But I will renew my plugin request as soon as the game is available.

    Simulation AAA titles are now common, others like Fallout 4 are to blaze the AAA VR path this year.

    ah yes sorry i read this :

    Fallout 4 VR rumours: Bethesda announces VR support for HTC Vive at E3 2016
    Bethesda took to the stage at E3 2016 and showcased a range of news in the form of existing game updates, as well as showing off footage from upcoming blockbuster games. The company showcased Dishonored 2 gameplay, announced the Prey reboot and even a remastered Elder Scrolls game. However, for fans of Fallout 4 - and those with a HTC Vive in particular - the biggest news of the night was the announcement of Bethesda VR.

    More specifically, Bethesda announced that Fallout 4 would gain VR support in 2017 with the SteamVR-enabled HTC Vive. No more details were given beyond that, leaving VR gamers with a flurry of questions - will it use the Vive controllers? How will you traverse the map? How will the developers deal with motion sickness when being knocked to the ground, etc? While we don't have many answers for you at this time, we'll update this section with more information as soon as we see it.

    By cons I can not find on the net, no date yet official release date?
