Rare as rocking horse waste since 2008, Live For Speed have released an update for the impressive little racing simulation title first released in 2006, bringing a laser scanned version of England's Rockingham Motor Speedway and various graphical enhancements. Originally revealed in 2008, Rockingham Motor Speedway has been a long time coming for LFS fans, and this latest edition does not disappoint. Featuring both Oval and Infield course configurations this laser scanned circuit is an interesting addition to the majority fictional circuits currently found in game. Live for Speed was one of the first racing sims to properly implement VR support in the form of Oculus Rift compatibility, and this latest V0.6K update recognises the continual growth in popularity of Virtual Reality gaming by adding implementation of HTC Vive headset support through OpenVR, further extending the shelf life of a title now heading into its 11th year since release. Improvements to the in game graphics (as can be seen by the screenshots in the post) include a new reflection and shaders system giving a pretty impressive boost to the visual experience, one that will surely be popular with fans of the title. Please note you will need an S3 license to unlock the Rockingham track. S3 licenses are available via the LFS website. If you already have S1 or S2, the price of your existing license will be deducted from the full price of S3. Further S3 content is understood to be in development but currently Rockingham is the only S3 content available.
