Tammeka and Perp have announced that the fast-paced racing game Radial-G: Racing Revolved will launch on the PlayStation 4 for PlayStation VR headset owners beginning September 12th in Europe.
The racing title originally came out back in March of 2016 last year for VR headsets on PC, including the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The game did not sell so well when it came out last year, only moving 10,000 copies according to Steam Spy. Then again, it did release when VR headsets weren’t quite saturated on the market and well before the price drops occurred this past year. So a lot of gamers likely missed out on the game when it first came out because so few people even had a VR headset during the early first quarter of 2016.
With the PlayStation VR having reached more than a million units on the market and installed in homes, there’s a much larger pool of potential customers for a game like Radial-G.
According to Mark Cundle, founder and director of Tammeka Games, the title is designed to take various tried and true mechanics and elevate the experience of PSVR owners with the new racing title, mentioning in the press release…
“Radial-G is a lightning fast, immediately absorbing space racer on a medium popularised by first-person shooters and horror experiences. We set out to add something completely unique to the VR library.”
You can check out the trailer for the game below to see what the gameplay is like.
You’ll have nine different tracks to race across set to some hardcore EDM, and you’ll be able to race those tracks using seven different racing craft.
There are also a variety of modes to play through, including a single-player career mode and an online multiplayer mode support up to 16 different players. You can also play offline against AI in modes as well.
To mix up some of the gameplay there are combat mechanics that allow you to fire on your opponents and add an element of unpredictability to the race using a variety of weapons.
The game is available on Steam at the moment for $19.99, but it will be available on the PlayStation Network starting September 12th for £29.99. You’ll also be able to pick up a physical copy of the game from retailers starting September 15th.
