Rhythm game Synth Riders is coming out of early access and getting a full release update on PC VR, alongside a release on Oculus Quest. Both the Quest version and the full release update for PC VR will arrive on October 31st.
The game was initially released into early access for PC VR in July last year. Since then, the developers at Kluge Interactive have doubled the number of songs available in the game and introduced an open-source beat map editor. The PC VR version is also one of only a few games that officially support in-game integration of fitness tracking tools from VR fitness company YUR. Given that the game is quite active and can be a good workout, the integration is useful for getting an idea of how many calories you’re burning while playing and measuring your Synth Rider sessions.
The Quest version will benefit from launching with all of the improvements and additions that Synth Riders received over the last year or so in early access. Quest users will have access to 30 songs, 4 difficulty levels and varied game modes, including regular, boxing, endurance and force modes. Kluge Interactive also confirmed that the Quest version will also support the official beat map editor and include an exclusive song for Quest users. However, it sadly won’t launch with multiplayer or global leaderboards.
The Quest version will also be slightly cheaper than the PC VR version of the game, at $16.99 compared to $19.99 on other platforms.
