Iâ€™ve had little reason to pick up a PlayStation VR headset while we are stuck between the launch release ofÂ REZ Infinite and the upcomingÂ Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Then along comes the simple and addictive indie gameÂ Race the Sun announcing that VR support is inbound, and VR is finally on my radar again.
I mean, just look at these new GIFs from the latest update and tell me thatÂ this isnâ€™t perfect for VR.
Whoa!Â Hello, my old nemesis, motion sickness. How have you been?
To go along with the VR update, weâ€™ve also added an option to play in first person mode. Youâ€™ll be able to toggle this via the pause menu, or by using the square button at any time during play. Weâ€™ve found that some players find this mode to be more comfortable in VR, while some players prefer the standard behind view.
Race the Sun was fun on just a Vita screen, this is insane!
Iâ€™ve always had a fondness forÂ Race the Sun as a simple time-waster on my PS Vita. Even without the addition of VR, itâ€™s a game that youâ€™ll always want to strive for just one more run-through. If VR is not your thing, I still suggest giving it a try as a normal game.
You can pick upÂ Race the Sun on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Xbox One, and PC.
