Have you been hitting the track every day? Feel like you’re the world’s sprinting champion and have the lap times to prove it? Need a new challenge? You’re getting one today.
Sprint Vector, Survios’ mad multiplayer VR racer, is getting a free update at 12pm PT today. Highlighting the patch is a brand new map, Outer Vegas, which you can see in the trailer below. On this course, you speed through a luxury space resort set between two black holes, dealing with gravity warps as you search for shortcuts. It looks suitably spacey, with tight corridors for you to navigate.
But that’s not all. If you haven’t tried Sprint Vector yet and you own an Oculus Rift, this weekend will be the perfect time to give it a go. The game will be free to play on the Oculus Store from April 5th to 8th, and is the next title to feature in the Rift Gold Rush Event. That means that if you’re playing a multiplayer game of Sprint Vector between 1pm to 2pm PT on April 7th, you’ll be in with a chance of winning Oculus goodies like Store credit and perhaps even the elusive Golden Account, which unlocks 100 free games.
As for the DLC, it’s the first in two free pieces sponsored by Intel, with the second update arriving in May.
We’re big fans of Sprint Vector here at UploadVR. We said it was a “great example of a game that could not exist without VR. The act of swinging your arms from side-to-side as you boost along massive, sprawling levels in contention with other racers is exhilarating. It makes for one of the silliest looking games to watch someone play but one of the most intense (and exhausting) experiences you can have in a headset.”
Best give it a try, then.
