Project Cars has now been patched to support the HTC Vive, giving the game support for both major VR headsets. The game will also be gaining some HTC Vive specific features, like allowing players to use their SteamVR background while in the games menus, allowing players to customise their surroundings while in menus using the Steam Workshop.  

This new patch also implements mouse support in VR and allows users to seamlessly switch between control methods on the fly, be it from keyboard to gamepad or whatever your desired control method is.
