Next week sees UK-based indie developer Tammeka Games release its first major update for the pre-release PC version of virtual reality (VR) compatible racing title, Radial-G. With the update the studio will add new tracks to its popular videogame along with a new third-person camera system and much more. For those waiting on news of the possible PlayStation 4 version of the title; Tammeka Games has confirmed to VRFocus that it is now in possession of a developer kit for the Project Morpheus head-mounted display (HMD).
Those that have been following Radial-G will recall just two weeks ago when VRFocus reported that the developer had received its PlayStation 4 development kit. At the time the studio hadn’t yet received a kit for Project Morpheus as well. Again, this news doesn’t necessarily confirm that the title will be coming to the console, but the developer has certainly made it clear that it intends to bring Radial-G to the console. Such a port may not be confirmed until after the PC version’s planned full launch in May 2015.
Radial-G is a sci-fi racing experience that’s inspired by the likes of WipeOut and F-Zero. Players can put on an Oculus Rift HMD or use a standard display to race across tubular tracks with a full 360 degree of control. Along with a number of maps and vehicles, the Early Access version of the title features 16-player multiplayer that will expand to 32 for the full release. Tammeka Games plans to deliver monthly updates to the experience in the run up to a full launch. From there, the developer will continue to update the title with DLC packs and more.
Radial-G is currently available through Steam’s Early Access program for £9.99 GBP. The title will be on display at next week’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) as part of the Open-Source Virtual Reality (OSVR) display. VRFocus will continue to follow Radial-G closely, reporting back with any further updates.
