Kluge Interactive introduced a multiplayer update for its VR rhythm game Synth Riders. Up to five players can now meet and play together in multiplayer mode. The update also features a redesigned, streamlined user interface. The free update is available now for the Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and Steam VR.
Synth Riders is an action rhythm VR game that offers an immersive combination of music, dancing and working out. The game features 32 songs in a range of genres, official support for custom songs (also on the Oculus Quest), and a variety of modifiers and difficulty levels. Since the release of Synth Riders in October 2019, the developer has been working closely with the player community, adding many requested features such as Party Mode, new visual stages, and more, while preparing for this major update.
The new multiplayer mode is cross platform. Players can meet together in lobbies, connect through voice chat and compete for high scores, all while dancing to their favorite OST and custom songs. Before each battle, players can spice up the competition by choosing from a collection of modifiers such as “Prismatic Notes” or “Sudden Death.”
Players will navigate redesigned menus and enjoy smoother, quicker and more intuitive interactions while choosing songs and browsing music packs. The developer has also added a bonus free song and created new custom-designed avatars, sound effects and visual stage.
Kluge Interactive plans to release an “Electro Swing Essentials” DLC including songs from Parov Stelar, Jamie Berry and Electric Swing Circus in the near future.
