Those that have already bought into the Early Access version of Tammeka Games’ virtual reality (VR) compatible racing title, Radial-G, recently enjoyed a new update to the videogame. Update #2 brought with it new speed classes as well as online leaderboards, new levels and new music tracks. For those that are yet to pick up the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD) compatible title, a single-player demo is currently available. In fact, Tammeka Games is soon to launch a newly updated version of that demo.
The developer has revealed that it is currently uploading version 1.5 of Radial-G‘s single-player demo to Oculus VR’s content sharing platform, Oculus VR Share. The updated version simply adds support for the latest version of the Oculus Rift’s software development kit (SDK), 0.4.4 along with support for DirectX 11. It doesn’t appear that any changes to Radial-G‘s content or compatibility have been made. A release date hasn’t been revealed, although it should follow on soon after the upload to Oculus VR Share is completed.
Radial-G is a sci-fi racing experience inspired by the likes of F-Zero and Wipeout. The title is planning one more update to its Early Access version before a full launch in late May 2015. The consumer build will include 32-player multiplayer among other features. Following on from there, Tammeka Games will continue to update the PC version as well as work on bringing the videogame to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Support for the Project Morpheus HMD for the latter version is expected to arrive in 2016.
VRFocus will continue to follow Radial-G closely, reporting back with any further updates on the title.
