August 4th, 2014 – IRVINE, CALIFORNIA

ESTsoft Inc., the North American based publishing arm of ESTsoft Corp., developer of the highly acclaimed MMORPG, CABAL Online, has announced support of the Oculus Rift VR platform for its upcoming groundbreaking flagship title, CABAL II.

With this announcement, ESTsoft’s CABAL II has become the first commercial MMORPG to support Oculus VR's immersive head-mounted display.

The ‘Oculus Rift’ is a revolutionary piece of hardware created by Oculus VR (a California based startup recently acquired by Facebook) in the form of a head-mounted display capable of generating an immersive virtual reality experience for the player. Once support is available (scheduled for August of 2014 for the Korean language version of CABAL II), the player will simply enable the “Oculus Rift” option within CABAL II to experience the game in breathtaking virtual reality.

An ESTsoft source has revealed that “Oculus Rift support has been included to enable players to further immerse themselves into the stunning graphical world of CABAL II.” The source also added “Constant updates and enhancements are scheduled in the future to realize the full potential of this technology, including a specialized control-UI specifically for the Oculus Rift. This will provide a more realistic and seamlessly immersive play experience.”

CABAL II is the sequel of CABAL Online, which hosts 28 million users playing from 60+ countries across the world. The Korean language version was released in December of 2012 and it is currently being optimized for release in the North American and European markets. Its intuitive and accessible game system is welcome for newcomers and seasoned veterans alike. CABAL II features an expansive world to explore, vivid action-packed combat, and brilliant graphics powered by Cry Engine 3.
