Ride the wave
Synth Riders was a highlight of PSVR: we loved it back when it launched in mid-2021. For a more explicit explanation, you can check out our original review, but know that this is a rhythm title played on a “note highway” and it’s excellent. One of the strengths of the game the first time through was its exceptional soundtrack,...
Ride the rails
We have espoused the virtues of VR rhythm games before, and now we have a new title to add to the mix: Synth Riders. While mechanically similar to Beat Saber on the surface, Synth Riders has some notable exceptions that allow it to stand out. Our favorite of these features are “rails”, in which you keep your hand balanced on a...
Boy, it sure feels like we were just talking about Synth Riders, doesn't it? Well, here we are again, as the team at Kluge Interactive has announced the release of another DLC pack for its immaculate rhythm title. Synth Riders at long last returns to the well of electro swing with 'Electro Swing Essentials 2' — one of the genres the...
It's only been a couple of months since the last Synth Riders update, but that hasn't stopped Kluge Interactive from dropping even more content into its sublime VR rhythm title. Available now, the newest track added to the title is a remixed version of a song not from Synth Riders, but from the VR golfing title, Walkabout Mini Golf...
A new song, and a few extras
The parade of new content for VR rhythm game Synth Riders continues! To celebrate the first Halloween since the launch of PSVR2, Kluge Interactive is once again celebrating the scariest time of year with free content. The 2023 Spooky Update includes one free song, Nightmare Cure by DanyloM & Electro Swing Thing...
New synthwave coming in hot
With its compelling gameplay loop, incredible soundtrack, and constant support by devs Kluge Interactive, Synth Riders is one of the best games you can play on PSVR or PSVR2. And now, if you boot the title up, there'll be even more music to try out in the game's extensive library of tunes, as there is new DLC available...
Synth Riders will allow you to experience incredible, licensed music of various genres in a whole new, immersive way. Dancing here is not optional but crucial for those willing to climb to the top of the leaderboard. Catch the orbs with your hands, follow the rails of long notes, avoid the walls, activate your entire body, move to the beat, and break a sweat in the process!
Choose from plenty of “Stages” filled with spinning mechanisms, futuristic cities, giant synthesizers, synthwave sunsets, and many more. On top of that, enjoy “Experiences” coming with selected DLC songs – unique, artistically driven visuals created to match perfectly with songs, providing a special blend of sight, sound, and physical actions.
Test your dancing skills in one of the two game modes – “Rhythm” and “Force,” with each focusing on a completely different playstyle. The Rhythm mode is dedicated to freestyle dancers, as in this mode, it’s where you hit the note that matters, not how. While in the Force mode, how you hit the note matters, not where, as having good momentum when hitting the note will bring you the highest points. And if you love to compete with friends and family, then the “Party” mode, where you’re able to pass the headset to them, should be right up your alley.
The possibilities for enjoying the game are endless, with five difficulty levels and a wide selection of additional modifiers to spice up the experience. Such as the “Spin Mode,” where notes come from different directions, requiring you to concentrate and move even more.
