Raw Data developer Survios’ next game is nearly upon us.
Sprint Vector, a unique racing game that mashes Mario Kart with VR, is releasing on the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on February 8th, with a PSVR release following just a few days later on February 13th. On PC, the game is getting a free launch pack featuring skins designed after the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics.
In Sprint Vector the player chooses an athletic alien to race as, then speeds around laps by simulating running by swinging their arms. Courses are littered with obstacles and you’ll have to master the game’s mechanics, which include climbing and even flying, to perfect your lap times. Up to eight players can take part in races, complete with power ups to even the odds. Solo play with AI characters is all available.
Over the past few weeks players have been honing their skills during a Closed Beta. Survios hopes to spark an eSports scene with the game; will it catch on?
