Kayak VR: Mirage - never has VR kayaking looked so good!

Might be more of a kayaking simulator and looks jaw-droppingly good:

 

 

This looks like one of my favorite kind of apps - where you try to recreate the real thing as good as you can with current gpus in VR. The app/game/sim isn't out before March 2022, and you can expect system requirements to be extremely high - right now devs expect:

 

RECOMMENDED:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Ryzen 3600 / Intel i7 9600K
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia Geforce 2080
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 10 GB available space

DLSS will be supported for RTX gpus, thus this is truly high-end PCVR. More info here:

Note that The Grand Canyon VR Experience has gotten mixed ratings, but I'm quite fond of that app. It looks great - and at least for the CV1 ss 2.0 using Ultra settings, you may need at least a 2080 (Ti) for solid 90 fps in the Grand Canyon app. Some shots:
