Meta Quest 3 officially launches tomorrow and with it a new era of mixed reality (MR) gaming. Some developers are upgrading current projects with better graphics, whilst others are adding MR components. One of the latest studios to do so is Kluge Interactive, teasing mixed reality support for its popular rhythm-action game Synth Riders.
Any discussion about virtual reality (VR) rhythm-action games tends to involve Beat Saber. However, before everyone was furiously swinging lightsabers around another title was aiming for the genre crown, Synth Riders. The work of Kluge Interactive, Synth Riders was released 5 years ago this week, offering up a slice of retro synthwave tunes. Standing the test of time to become a fan favourite, XR Source looks back on the last half-decade of Synth Riders‘ rhythm-action gaming.
Kluge Interactive has announced a closed beta playtesting for their newest title, Final Fury. Currently in development for all major platforms, Final Fury is a new VR fighting game. It is aiming to bring the dynamic gameplay mechanics of classic arcade fighting games to the immersive world of VR.
Virtual reality (VR) gaming isn’t about plonking yourself on a sofa and lazily playing through an open-world adventure. VR wants you to get involved, physically pick up stuff and really become engrained in the experience. Because of this aspect, VR can be energetic and healthy, making it great for fitness at home. If you’re looking for a good home workout, here are the best VR fitness games to try.
