Have you ever wanted to race in a sports car but never really had the guts to do it in real life? Or maybe you just never had access to such a vehicle? Either way the good news is that if the life of a race car driver is something you’ve always been curious about, EA has launched Need For Speed No Limits for Google’s Daydream platform.

What this means is that if you own a Daydream compatible handset and the Daydream View headset, you will be able to experience EA’s long-running Need for Speed franchise in virtual reality. Granted this isn’t exactly the same as being in an actual race car, but the point about virtual reality is the immersion, so hopefully it’ll bring you one step closer to the real thing.

As it stands the Daydream handsets that are supported include the new Google Pixel handsets, as well as the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. Note that Need for Speed No Limits is not free and will cost gamers $15, which is admittedly rather pricey as far as mobile titles are concerned, but if you reckon the fact that it support VR is worth it, then by all means do go ahead.

The game will feature 60 events, 12 tracks, and 4 realistic environments. There will be a variety of cars and interiors to choose from, all of which have been fully-rendered in high detail. There will also be SFX surround sound, but chances are you’ll need a good pair of headphones if you really want to get into the zone. To get your hands on it, hit up the Google Play Store for the download.
