Kluge Interactive have introduced the biggest free update to their rhythm action VR game Synth Riders to date. The lavish “Spin Mode” update is packed with new features, including groundbreaking spinning experience which lets the players enjoy the unconstrained freedom of dancing.
The star of the show is a “Spin Mode” that introduces 90, 180, 360, and 360+ overhead spins to every song and difficulty in the game. In this mode, orbs and walls come from various directions making for an even more immersive and engaging experience.
The unique thing about “Spin Mode” is that the spinning works not only in the entire 39 track OST but also in players’ favorite custom songs thanks to the carefully crafted algorithm. Spins will work exactly the same every time in given songs across all the users, difficulty levels, and platforms. It is good news for the players who would like to master specific maps and compete with others in the leaderboards – or in the multiplayer mode.
This free update also introduces “Play Profiles” that allows the players to easily access their favorite combinations of modifiers to match the type of play experience they want to have. Players can choose from a selection of predefined profiles such as Dance, Force, and Spin, or create and share their own unique combinations. “Play Profiles” can be played in the Multiplayer Mode and each of them comes with their own scores thanks to a brand new filterable leaderboard system.
The developers are also excited to introduce a new free track “Star Fighter” from the fantastic Danish synthwave and retro-electro artist, Wice. With a punchy bassline and soaring synth leads, this 2017 classic is a perfect song to take for a spin!
The update is rolling out today on the Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Steam VR, and Viveport.
