The Climb is a just-announced virtual reality game that will allow owners of the Oculus Rift headset to feel like they are scaling mountains and rock faces with an Xbox One or Oculus Touch controller. The game comes from developer Crytek, best known for their Crysis first-person shooter series and makers of the CryEngine game creation tools.

Crytek stated:

"The Climb invites thrill-seekers to experience the ultimate in extreme sports by going beyond the point of no return and scaling deadly cliff faces unaided. The game boasts hyper-realistic climbing locations from around the world, and players will discover the freedom of gaming with the Rift using either an Xbox One controller or Oculus Touch controllers as they soak up their awe-inspiring surroundings."

Crytek did not announce a release date or price for The Climb. The Oculus Rift headset is scheduled to be released sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
