Ready player…RUN! We are so excited to announce a final release date for Survios’ multiplayer adrenaline platformer Sprint Vector, first previewed on PlayStation VR at Paris Games Week 2017. Now, Sprint Vector is blasting onto PS4 for PlayStation VR on February 13th, 2018!
Intuitive, addictive, competitive
Sprint Vector sends its intrepid contestants, running, jumping, climbing, flinging, drifting, and even flying across interdimensional 8-player race courses and challenge maps where your speed and finesse are put to the test.
Race in competitive online 8-player matches with global leaderboards, or invite your friends into a private match for a little friendly competition. Master 12 colorful, complex race tracks and nine solo challenge courses, or go at your own pace with customisable game settings for a more casual, free-running experience.
Go with the flow: introducing fluid locomotion
At Survios, we have a pretty simple design philosophy: “Why not?” It allows for a lot of fun experimentation because it presents obstacles as opportunities. Which brings us to Exhibit A: locomotion, a constant issue since VR’s inception.
We wanted to make a game where you could go absurdly fast, have complete agency over how you move, and feel capable of doing anything – so we set out to build a new way to move in VR while addressing all the pre-conceived notions of speed-induced nausea.
Sprint Vector’s Fluid Locomotion system and intuitive intended motion mechanics let you comfortably attain and maintain extreme speeds in VR.
Fluid Locomotion consists of smooth, natural arm motions and simple mechanics, which make its mechanics easy to learn and addictively fun to master. And in the process of conceptualising the game that would fully utilize Fluid Locomotion, we created a physically active, mentally challenging, ridiculously fun new virtual reality genre.
We’re so excited to welcome all you prospective new elite athletes to Sprint Vector, a brand new, high-octane adrenaline platformer that sends you rocketing through colorful space-punk landscapes as the star of an intergalactic parkour game show.
