One of the most beloved and longstanding VR games, Synth Riders, is making its way to PSVR on July 27. The game will launch with 55 free tracks and 20 tracks that can be purchased, including DLC tracks from artists like Muse, Offspring, and more. The company stated that the latest string of DLC packs, that will be added to the PSVR version, will aim to bring more well-known artists to the game to enhance users’ experience when working out with the rhythmic dance game. In addition, the PSVR version of the game will be launching with two different game modes: catching notes in ‘Rythm Mode’ and punching notes in ‘Force Mode’ for a more intensive workout.
First launched on PC VR headsets in 2018, Synth Riders gained popularity through its ‘freestyle’ dance that got players up and moving through virtual reality. Stand-out additions like orbs, catch notes, rides rails, and obstacles that players dodge and catch with their hands made the dance game a lot different than its other competitors–causing Synth Riders to garner attraction. The game also features music from varying genres like electro, swing, EDM, and punk rock–allowing the game to reach every different kind of player, no matter what style of music they preferred.
Now, since its initial launch, Kludge Interactive has added, improved, and expanded on several features of the game including the multiplayer game modes, fitness-focused soundtracks, and cross-collaborations with other rhythm games. This being said, the new PSVR version is already proving to benefit from the past three years of content upgrades and DLC releases. The game’s trailer is showing that this version will include some new main features that include over 10 immersive environments, a ‘Party Mode,’ a wide selection of modifiers, and add-ons from different artists.
Synth Riders fans can also embark on a little competition to get ready for the PSVR launch. Kludge Interactive announced on Synth Riders’ blog that those who sign-up to receive a one-time-only launch reminder will be eligible to enter a giveaway to win a ‘Complete Music Pack’ DLC bundle for the game on release day.
