We’re happy to announce a free upcoming update for the PS4 version of Race The Sun, including PS VR support, a new game mode, and a few other extras!
Ever since our earliest days with Race The Sun on Kickstarter, some players have been asking for VR support. We’re happy to announce that this is finally happening on April 18th! All game modes will be playable in VR. To enable VR, just select the option from the menu. To exit VR mode, simply turn off the headset.
Additionally, we’ve added a free new game mode called Sunrise.
This mode doesn’t have highscores, and doesn’t get increasingly difficult like the other modes. It’s simply a way to chill out and relax!
We’ve added a few new worlds to be discovered when you enter a portal. Now, instead of always going to Void when entering a portal, you will randomly be taken to one of five destinations.
The portal destination changes daily to keep things fresh.
To go along with the VR update, we’ve also added an option to play in first person mode. You’ll be able to toggle this via the pause menu, or by using the square button at any time during play. We’ve found that some players find this mode to be more comfortable in VR, while some players prefer the standard behind view.
We hope you enjoy the update!
