ProTubeVR has announced its new haptic module, ForceTube Scout, which is designed to be used with its MagTube Rifle frame. This gives gamers more immersive VR shooting experiences using haptic feedback to recreate realistic recoil and other gun effects.
The ForceTube Scout Haptic Module is compatible with both the Oculus Quest and PC VR platforms. The module simulates the vibrations of the firearm and the impact on the player's shoulder. The effect changes depending on the weapon the player is using. It is said to give a realistic weight, dimensions, and sturdiness to make the player feel like they are holding a real weapon. The accessory is set to have native support for titles such as Sniper Elite VR, Pavlov, Contractors, Onwards, Hot Dog, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, War Dust, Stand Out VR Battle Royale, and many others.
The impact is imminent.
