Crytek's virtual-reality climbing game The Climb is out today on Oculus Rift, and you can get a sense of what to expect from it via a launch trailer. You might not be able to experience the immersive feeling you'd get with a headset on, but you can see how players need to be keenly aware of their surroundings while looking for handholds and other ways to reach new heights.

The trailer also shows off the game's third environment, canyon, which is based on the Grand Canyon. Players can also take a virtual tour of the Alps and an Asian-inspired bay.
