Indie developer Tammeka has confirmed to VRFocus that it will be launching a demo for its upcoming virtual reality (VR) sci-fi racing title, Radial-G, next week. Players will be able to try out the PC title for free using the Oculus Rift VR headset, though a standard version will also be available. Radial-G was revealed last month with a teaser trailer and is being created by former Black Rock Studios and NCsoft developers.
The demo grants access to the title’s timed lap attack mode. This is a single-player option in which players attempt to complete a full lap as quickly as possible. Speed pads will help reach the finish line faster while red gates will slow vehicles down. Lap times will be placed on a worldwide leaderboard for players to try and top. Players need only set up their own profile to be registered on the leaderboards and be emailed about future updates on the title. VRFocus recently went hands-on with the title and came away impressed. A detailed preview will also be available later this week.
Support for the wired Xbox 360 controller will also be included in the teaser. As revealed at an event last month, Radial-G is also set to feature a multiplayer option for at least two players, though this won’t be included in the demo.
Tammeka has also revealed that they will be launching a Kickstarter campaign for Radial-G on 3rd July 2014. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress and report back with all the latest updates.
