Earlier this week VRFocus hosted an interview with Tammeka Games, the UK-based developer behind virtual reality (VR) compatible racing videogame, Radial-G. In the interview the studio’s Sam Watts detailed what fans can expect to see in the second of three monthly major updates to the title’s Early Access phase ahead of its full launch. Today sees Tammeka Games launch that update, bringing a host of new features and tweak to the experience, which supports the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD). A trailer for the update can be seen below.
Highlighting Update #2 is the addition of speed classes to Radial-G. Two new classes are available, one of which is slightly slower than the original class, with the other being faster. Tammeka Games has also added online leaderboards to its title so that players can start competing for the best lap times of a global scale. The developer has also made tweaks to the handling of each ship, ensuring that there is more variation between types. Two new race tracks have also been added as well as two new music tracks. Finally, a new ‘Ultra Hard’ AI setting has been implemented.
There’s still plenty more to come from Radial-G. Tammeka Games will launch its third update to the title in early May, with the full launch following on later in the month. From there, the title will see regular DLC drops adding more content. Some of this content will be free while some with be premium. The developer has also been open with its intentions to bring Radial-G to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, confirming that it has development kits for both, though is yet to officially announce such ports. The latter version is also likely to include support for the Project Morpheus HMD.
