What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

THPVR is an Early Access title which means it is still in ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT. It is not a finished game but there will be regular content updates until it is. If you're looking for a polished finished product, please wait until the full release. If you like the demo and want more, join us for the full ride.

Being innovative in VR takes a lot of hands-on improvement. The core of the game is locomotion-based and because of that, we need and want as much feedback as possible from the greater VR gaming community.

After 2 years of development and beta, we feel like there's enough game to offer a playable, more-than-a-demo experience. Yet we are nothing without the gaming community and need your help to improve the game and work out problems so we can evolve THPVR into the best game we can as we approach the finish line.

Real winter sports has a deep learning curve and we hope to capture some of that depth while at the same time providing a fun, beginner-friendly and accessible experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“After releasing in Early Access, it will take about 4-8 weeks to ship the initial tracks and approximately a year to achieve a full release.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

  • 60 playable areas over 6 different mountain ranges
  • 6 Courses + 4 Exploration areas per mountain range
  • Full story mode featuring legendary action sports athletes
  • Side quests, collectibles, and achievements
  • Name brand gear and clothing
  • Even more technical tricks: jibbing, presses, buttering, etc.
  • Full 3dRudder support
  • Multiplayer

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 20/60 total playable areas + new maps dropping weekly
  • 3/6 playable mountain ranges, Mega City by Xmas, Alaska in January
  • 5 modes: Race, Freestyle, Checkpoint 1+2, and Time Attack
  • Huge explorable areas: 100km² Courmayeur, Brevent-Flegere, Cascade Mountains

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For one week after Early Access launch, it will be discounted to 1/2 the price of the full release. After the first week, the price will go up to 2/3 the price of the full release. As we ship more features and get closer to full release, we will gradually raise the price of the game. Buying Early Access now gives you access to the full game when it releases.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We've been working on this project since 2018. For the past year we've play tested the beta to make sure it's as playable and bug-free as possible. Over the next year we will work closely with the player community and winter sports community to make the best extreme winter sports game we can possibly make in VR.”

“Powder VR gives you an enormous mountain range to claim as your own. It’s chock full of massive drops, steep slopes and plenty of chances to show off your skills.”

“I had the pleasure of sitting down with Jim Brodbeck, the main developer of RainSoft Games, to talk about his upcoming title Powder VR, a game that will make you do some crazy stunts in the snow.”
The Ghost Howls

“An extreme sports sim, Powder VR combines Skiing, snowboarding and wing suiting into one adrenaline-filled experience.”
