In a couple of weeks, Things3D will be publishing its very first virtual reality (VR) title in the form of futuristic racer Radial-G: Proteus for Oculus Quest. While VRFocus has had an initial look at the videogame there were still a few unanswered questions. Some of these have now been answered.
When Radial-G: Proteus launches later this month it’ll offer a single-player experience with a variety of gameplay modes against AI opponents. With a distinctive cel-shaded art style to differentiate it from Tammeka Games’ original Radial-G: Racing Revolved, the rebooted version will still feature the same tubular tracks that give the title its unique gameplay style.
When VRFocus previewed Radial-G: Proteus one of the main concerns was the lack of a multiplayer option, as racing videogames are much more fun competing against real players. That worry has now been addressed, with Things3D confirming a multiplayer mode is in the works as a future update.
Several other details have now been released regarding the core launch experience as well as the first update. Radial-G: Proteus will launch with eight gameplay modes including combat, elimination and championship, all based around nine tubular, half-pipe and rail-based racetracks. Supplied with a brand new techno soundtrack by Tom Evans and Last Ronin, there will be four ships to unlock, three speed classes to compete in as well as Oculus achievements and leaderboards.
Then in Q1 2020 the Radial-G: Proteus – Omega update will be rolled out, adding an expanded single-player campaign, another racetrack, three more ships to unlock and a boss-fight game-mode.
Previously having little competition in the racing genre on Oculus Quest, Radial-G: Proteus now has to compete with OZWE Games’ latest title Death Lap. Another vehicular combat racer, Death Lap is a more traditional four-wheeled experience, set within a narrative of a warped game show.
Radial-G: Proteus will be an exclusive release for Oculus Quest on 17th December priced at $24.99 USD.

As always, VRFocus will continue its coverage of Radial-G: Proteus, reporting back with further updates and announcements.
