Earlier this month VRFocus revealed that Tammeka Games had successful secured funding to release a full version of its upcoming virtual reality (VR) compatible sci-fi racing experience, Radial-G. Since then a number of potential rivals for Radial-G have made themselves known. The first is Vector 36, which launched a Steam Greenlight campaign earlier this week. Now there’s Chaos Ride from indie developer Scott Games, which has also launched a push for Greenlight approval this week.
Chaos Ride sits players in the seat of futuristic motorcycles and pits them in incredibly high speed races that take place inside tube-like courses. Players are able to travel up to speeds of 675mph and can drive anywhere inside the tunneled maps, which are often surrounded by futuristic scenery such as neo urban environments and even space. Played in a first-person perspective, a screen on the player’s vehicle will inform them of how far they are travelling, their position in a race, a charge for their turbo meter and time expired.
Chaos Ride will launch with full support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) on PC and contain nine different tracks, each with reverse variations as well as five different game modes, 15 time and score attack challenges, and even split-screen multiplayer for up to four people. The title will feature its own progression and customisation systems so that players can create the best vehicles for each track that they race on.
VRFocus will continue to follow Chaos Ride going forward, reporting back with any further updates on the title’s progress.
