Synth Riders landed on PlayStation VR last month and we absolutely loved it. Synth Riders launched with an incredible selection of music — even discounting the tracks locked behind a paywall — and not only did it have a great gameplay loop, but also the best VR solution to sustained notes to date. We couldn't wait to see what song packs were on the docket after the title's launch.
Well, it turns out, the answer was the welcome return of a familiar face: Muse. With a few tracks already in the game --as well as an "experience" version of their song "Algorithm" — the Brit rockers return with a pack all to themselves.
While the pack launched on September 16th for the other VR headsets, the pack is now available on PSVR and includes five songs, and of course a new "experience" featuring Synth Riders' absolutely brilliant renditions of interactive music videos. If you nab the pack you can expect to rock out to:
- Starlight (This is the experience track as well)
A pretty broad pack then, with songs from across many of the band's albums rather than zeroing in on just one or two. Are you interested in scooping it up? Is it worth breaking out your trusty headset? Sound off with your favourite Muse track in the comments below
Love Muse! Origin of Symmetry is one of my favourite albums (the first 6 tracks anyway).
I downloaded all the Muse albums years ago but I’ve never listened to any of the others - I always just go back to OOS when I need my Muse fix.
The track they used in the opening sequence of the World War Z movie was pretty good I think - I forget what it’s called now but I liked it. I liked the movie quite a bit less 😏 The WWZ book is excellent though. And the abridged audiobook is also excellent (the one with the all-star cast of narrators, including Mark Hamill). The unabridged audiobook isn’t performed quite as well.
As for PSVR... my headset is already plugged in and set up... I just have to muster the enthusiasm to pick it up and put it on my head... Too much effort! 😂
I have so many VR games that I’ve never played. One of these days, I’ll have a VR binge. I will! But not today... maybe tomorrow... 😁
I brought the last Muse song pack on thr Quest but I deffo prefer this one.
I love Starlight and Id take uprising.
The last song pack just had really new stuff which I wasnt into as much
Love a bit of Muse, one of my favourite bands at T in the park back in the early 00's.
@FR_eeBritney You must be chuffed with today's results for Britney ? she's the same age as me, It's a damn shame she's not been able to live her life the way she wants to!
Man I've been listening to The 2nd Law on repeat on my car stereo for the last 3 weeks. I think it's past the point where I could get sick of it. Love that album and Muse in general
I loved Muse. When I was 12. Hahaha, just not really my bag at all anymore although Origin of Symmetry is a pretty good album.
@MightyDemon82 I cheered when I heard the news 😁 A step in the right direction for sure.
Still a long way to go I think but hopefully she can now see a light at the end of the tunnel.
As a fan, it’s not even about getting new music or her doing another tour - I think most fans just want her to be healthy and happy, which she clearly isn’t under the conservatorship.
There are some real horror stories coming out at the moment. It’s just crazy that this was allowed to go on for so long.
We all deserve to live free, to have dignity and feel safe.
@fR_eeBritney Only the first 6 tracks?! I LOVE Megalomania, probably one of my fav songs of theirs!
Oh, what! Was Mark Hammill in the movie too? Or just the audiobook?
What VR games have you booted it up for? Or have you? I know rhythm games are far and away the ones I find myself putting on the headset for over and over, whereas everything else I gotta accumulate like 5 of them before I can be bothered haha. But if I wanna play Beat Saber (or Synth Riders actually) I'll just play whenever I'm in the mood!
@nessisonett Honestly kinda same haha. They were my FAVORITE band in high school and I was convinced of it. Now I still enjoy them a ton, but I can't tell what's nostalgia and what's me still loving it haha
@Burntbreadman Yeah that first one, they all came from their last album. Pleasantly surprised to see tracks from across all different albums this time!
