Just before Christmas Kluge Interactive announced that it would be bringing British rockers Muse to rhythm action title Synth Riders. That DLC arrives today, alongside free songs as well as a unique visual experience for Muse’s Algorithm.
Kluge Interactive has revealed the five songs from Muse which are all paid DLC content and the three free songs released as an update. The first two Muse tracks come from the band’s synthwave-inspired album Simulation Theory.
“Synthwave Essentials 2” Muse DLC songs:
- “Algorithm” (Alternate Reality Version) – Muse
- “The Dark Side” – Muse
- “Running In The Night” – FM-84 & Ollie Wride
- “Days of Thunder” – The Midnight
- “Tech Noir” (Carpenter Brut Remix) – Gunship
3 Free Songs:
- “Abyss” (Gancher & Ruin Remix) – 3FORCE (feat. Scandroid)
- “Empire of Steel” (MASKED Remix) – Essenger (feat. Scandroid)
- “Automatic Call” – NINA
“We have been wanting to make a true audio-visual Synth Riders “experience” for a while now, and I’m incredibly happy with how “Algorithm” turned out, this has opened the doors for us to continue to keep putting music at the foreground of VR!” said Abraham Aguero Benzecri, Kluge Interactive’s Creative Director in a statement.
Released back in 2018, Synth Riders‘ music library has now expanded 67 songs (52 free and 15 paid). Plus there’s official custom song support so players can add their own.
The Synthwave Essentials 2 music pack will be available today with the five DLC tracks purchased individually for $1.99 USD or bundled together with a 20% discount. The core Synth Riders videogame supports Oculus Quest, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Oculus Rift (cross-buy supported on Oculus Store). As further updates are released for Synth Riders, VRFocus will keep you updated.
