Five months after release, action title FIVE: Champions of Canaan has issued a rather surprise update for those not actively following the game - Support for the major virtual reality headsets.
While seemingly one of the first to openly support Razer's own Open-Source VR platform as far back as November, further support was mentioned in an update in the early days of December.
Now available through a patch issued over the weekend, users of the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Razer's technically un-released HDK2 headset can enjoy bashing the skulls of their enemies in virtual reality. Details are scarce, even with the developers making multiple mentions of the updates over the last few months, but it's there for anyone who can make use of it.

Though FIVE: Champions of Canaan is all about besting your opponents in mortal combat with medieval weaponry, hand-tracked combat through the major headset's go-to control methods like the Vive 'Wands' or Oculus Touch isn't mentioned in the update notices. Instead, players are recommended to use an Xbox One controller regardless of their decision to stand or remain seated for their VR session.
We reviewed the title back when it released in September with our own TJ Denzer making note of how it "puts up a good fight" though "occasionally struggles" with its efforts. Still, for those interested, it's available through Steam.
