Today Frame Interactive has announced a major update for its PlayStation VR videogame Headmaster. Titled ‘Party Mode Update’, it adds enhancements to multiplayer, PlayStation 4 Pro support and more.
As the name suggests, the big inclusion for the update is a beefed up local multiplayer. Renamed ‘Party Mode’, nine levels have been added, some are remixes of existing elements, while some are completely new. They are:
- Big Monkey – A giant, inflatable, used car sale gorilla that acts out a low-rent King Kong circus performance. I should just stop there.
- Robert’s Room – Actually play in a room with mini balls and targets. See if you can dislodge Robert from the toilet.
- Rock and Bowl – Bowling redone with blacklights and splatter paint
- Basketcase – A newly done up basketball challenge.
- Speed Round 2 – A new speed round with special surprises
- Facility Tour – Several classic levels all in one, quickly moving between them in a single level.
- Non-Alcoholic Pong – Classic Headmaster non-beer pong rearranged
- Darts – It’s still darts taped to soccer balls like you’d expect
- Carnival – The classic carnival exam remixed for Party Mode
For PlayStation 4 Pro owners, Frame Interactive has increased the resolution to help make those distance shots more legible. “We were able to turn the final rendered image up to 2x supersampling with MSAA,” said Frame Interactive’s founder, Ben Throop on PlayStation blog. “It runs at 90 frames per second on PS4 and PS4 Pro, but on the PS4 Pro it is now noticeably sharper.”
An initials feature has now been added, so that players can add theirs when competing locally if they achieve a high score.
Lastly, some of the tougher levels have been reworked to make them a little easier, with lesson 31 of particular annoyance Throop notes.
