Damn. I had submitted my request to take part in the beta. Never heard back. Can't wait.

I'm also happy to hear it will be available through Steam. Was not looking forward to futzing around with the Microsoft Store.

For VR, would the graphics processing take place on the headset or would you still need a beefy video card? I'm curious because if you don't need a 2080, a headset and flight stick would be the way to go with this game.

Graphics are done on the video card, and you do need something beefy because you're essentially running a 2160×1200 display (1080×1200 per eye) for a Vive or 2880 x 1600 (1400 x 1600 per eye) for a Vive Pro, as an example. Minimum card requirement for the Vive Pro is a GTX 1070, but I'm guessing it's not going to look all that good.

Just happen to have the Vive specs in front of me, but I'm sure the SteamVR is similar. Most require a DisplayPort connector, although all high end cards have those now, and sometimes more than one.

I see it's already on Steam's pre-order.

I'll wait for user reviews.
