'Crytek' is currently developing a VR rock climbing game that brings the mountaineering experience into your living room. While rock climbing is a popular hobby, not everyone will have the opportunity to experience what it feels like to scale a deadly cliff face. Now VR technology is being used to give consumers the same experience in the form of a video game.

'The Climb' is a VR game that works in conjunction with the Oculus Rift headset and a Xbox One or Oculus Touch controller. The game is intended to mimic the experience of scaling a rocky peak in some of the world's most popular climbing destinations. Unlike a regular video game, The Climb uses VR technology to create a fully immersive experience. As a result, players are able to fully experience the sensation of rock climbing in a way that traditional video games do not allow.

The VR rock climbing game provides a new way for consumers to experience hobbies that they may not be able to undertake in real life.
