Hot off the heels of the Lindsey Stirling song pack, Kluge Interactive has announced yet more music coming to its phenomenal VR rhythm title, Synth Riders. In celebration of the game’s fourth anniversary – it launched on PC VR headsets well in advance of the PSVR version, which has only been available since last August – a number of festivities will kick off.
By the time you’re reading this, the anniversary update will be out, bringing with it two new, free songs. Additionally, the two tracks – “On My Way” by Finesu and “Stardust” by Skybreak – will be Content ID free, allowing for you to stream or monetize content featuring the tracks as much as your hearts may desire! These new tracks bring the total of songs included with the game up to a rather impressive 57. And that’s not counting the plethora of paid DLC packs you can pick up.
In addition to the new tracks, the update promises to include new birthday-related decals to place on the ground in your digital environment, allowing you further customisation options within the virtual world. The decals will be joined by updated challenges to add further changes to the Synth Riders experience.
So, are you excited to celebrate Synth Riders, erm, 11 month PSVR anniversary? Ready to try out the new songs? Is Synth Riders one of those rare VR games you always like to keep handy? Let us know in the comments!
Nice! That's a good reason to pick this up again. Awesome experience!
@ThaBEN how did you find the motion sickness with this? Really tempted to try this.
Not a problem at all, since your standing on a plateau that is standing still, my brain has no problems with motion sickness. Also, the games has levels without movement and I believe you have a option for "static levels" also, if my memory serves correct.
Thanks for the reply. I get it a little bit now and again but it's manageable. Gonna give this a go then. Cheers
I picked up a Quest 2 pretty much custom Beat saber and Audica songs.
But honestly I havent returned to beat saber ever since picking up Synth Riders (but I have to Audica here and there)
I tend to cherry pick a few songs for most pack releases (minus the punk set?)
Honestly Id put it above Beatsaber and at least on par with Audica. But probably would recommend Synth Riders over Audica.
Synth Riders is just as fun on the lower difficulties as the harder ones (prob a tad more fun on Hard/Expert vs Master)
Audica doent really feel as fun till your playing on Expert (maybe the 2nd hardest ....advance?)
Both still are great.....just depends if your willing to put the effort to get to that 'in the zone, awesome feeling'
@Discol76 Very stable, with lots of comfort options! If the default isn't to your liking motion-wise there are plenty of options to make it more palatable!
@Burntbreadman Beat Saber and Synth Riders are the 2 of the VR games I leave installed at all times haha. Those and Pistol Whip, so all rhythm games. Definitely agreed about Synth Riders over Audica, I kept that installed for a while too, but once Synth Riders hit PSVR, it kinda just replaced Audica, but these days, if I turn the headset on, it's basically guaranteed I'm playing one of those 3! Synth Riders for something a little more calming, Pistol Whip and Beat Saber when I want to really get a workout in.
@gbanas92 thanks. 👌
