Description: Walk, jog, run, climb and crawl across a range of locations and terrains in the Freedom Locomotion VR demo. This game showcases the revolutionary Freedom Locomotion System that provides you with a wide range of options, which will allow you to find the most immersive fit regardless of how motion sickness sensitive you might be.
The Freedom Locomotion System puts CAOTS (Controller Assisted On The Spot) at the front and centre of the system. This is a form of walking in place locomotion solution where to move, you simply walk, jog or run on the spot, allowing you to walk, jog or run in VR. This also has the benefit of allowing you to traverse large open-world VR spaces in an immersive manner while being less likely to get motion sick than traditional sliding VR locomotion solutions.
Review: What’s so odd about ‘Freedom Locomotion VR’ is that it is still relevant to VR tech and VR software even now! VR locomotion is something that will start arguments and rage wars, but even today nothing is set in stone. This…testbed is a testing stage for various forms of locomotion in order to see which is best, but as I said, even now it is a bone of contention in the VR community. If you have questions about VR locomotion do try this app, otherwise, it is not really worth download. A good app and well made for sure, but this is not a game or an experience, it is a testbed and little more.
