Known for popular titles like the adrenaline-packed Rush VR and the sharp-shooting Gun Club VR, developer The Binary Mill has announced that its next virtual reality (VR) release will be a PlayStation VR exclusive, Mini Motor Racing X. This pits players in cars that may be small in size but the challenge for first place is still as big as any normal racer.
Based on its Mini Motor Racing franchise for iOS devices which first started in 2012, Mini Motor Racing X keeps that classic arcade-style racing action whilst upgrading it for PlayStation 4 players. Offering four championships with over 50 vibrant environments to master, the experience features full VR support and non-VR gameplay on PlayStation 4 with multiplayer cross-play between them.
There’s an online multiplayer supporting up to four players as well as a local campaign co-op, so they can challenge their friends online in party games or on the couch. Levels have multiple day and night and weather variants giving each track an instant replay factor, and there are loads of extra cars to unlock, which can then be suped-up with race winnings.
The Binary Mill plans on releasing Mini Motor Racing X in December for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR, although it hasn’t confirmed a date at present.
PlayStation VR owners are going to have plenty of videogames to choose from over the festive period, both digitally and at retail. Four new videogames are already confirmed for next week, with Highwire Games’ Golem, escape room puzzler Last Labyrinth, VR Ping Pong Pro and Doctor Who: Edge of Time. Before the end of the year Battlewake, Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, Honor and Duty: D-Day All Out War Edition, Golem and BoxVR will be available on store shelves.
