We revealed Radial-G Proteus’ gameplay earlier today during the Holiday VR Showcase, which you can watch in its entirety right here or over on the UploadVR YouTube channel. In the showcase we debuted brand new feature, gameplay snippets, and announcements for over 20 different upcoming VR games so it’s worth giving a watch.
But first, here’s what Radial-G: Proteus will be like on Oculus Quest:
If you feel some heavy F-Zero or WipEout vibes, that’s intentional. The original Radial-G was an Oculus Rift launch title way back in early 2016. You know, back in the days when the Rift shipped with a single sensor and Xbox One controller and the Oculus Touch controllers were still six months away. What a time to be alive!
Radial-G: Proteus doesn’t seem to be a totally brand new game, but the dramatic shift in art style is enough to make it feel quite fresh regardless. Levels take place on twisting, winding cylinders that snake through futuristic cityscapes and oceans of stars. It certainly looks like the speed and intensity are left in tact here.
This seems like a great fit for Quest, a VR platform that’s oddly lacking in the racing game department. Racing games have been a definitive genre for VR headsets across both PC VR and PSVR so Radial-G will certainly fill a gap for players.
Radial-G: Proteus is slated for a December 2019 release.
