Want a heart-pumping racing title for Oculus Quest? Then you might want to take a look at Radial-G: Proteus by Tammeka Games and Things3D, which launched at the end of 2019. Now the teams have announced the addition of new content called the ‘Omega Update’.
Players will be able to test their skills on a new race track, enjoy an expanded single-player campaign where they can unlock three more ships and most importantly, take on a new boss fight mode which has three difficulty tiers.
Plus the studios also note in a press release that: “the Omega update delivers performance improvements, specifically within the top two difficulty tiers (X-II and X-III), visual improvements within the ship cockpits and additional audio elements, combined these improvements enhance the overall gameplay.”
All of this is in addition to the four unlockable ships, three speed modes, nine racetracks and eight racing modes which were previously available.
Just like its predecessor Radial-G: Racing Revolved – which launched way back in 2016 for PC VR headsets – Radial-G: Proteus is a lightning-fast racing experience set on a series of tubular tracks (with a few inverted sections for good measure). With a new techno soundtrack by Tom Evans and Last Ronin, players can ramp up their speed by hitting boost pads and collect weapon loadouts off the track to attack opponents, dropping mines or firing off heat-seeking missiles. They also need to keep an eye out for red walls which rotate around the track bringing them to a stop whilst removing a chunk of their shield.
One addition which hasn’t made it across from the original is multiplayer. Things3D has confirmed the mode is in development but has yet to issue a timeline for release.
To celebrate the release of Radial-G: Proteus’ Omega update, Things3D has cut the price in half price, with the title retailing on the Oculus Store at $12.99 USD/£9.99 GBP/€12.99 EUR for a limited time. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Radial-G: Proteus, reporting back with the latest announcements.
