What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The main reason is — we need funds for the bigger development team and to rent dedicated servers to bring you a better experience.
We don't want to bring an unready and weak game and have tons of ideas how Qbike can evolve.
Though the game is already playable and brings lots of fun online, we want to share with you new interesting gameplay ideas and hear your opinion.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning on remaining in Early Access for 6 months, but if there will be reasons to stay longer — we will stay. It is very important for us to make a good game.”

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

“The final Qbike will bring you various challenges on futuristic motorcycles.
We plan to include innovative Landgrab and Infinity Race challenges.

Also, Deathmatch mode will be improved with Team Deathmatch, Time Deathmatch and other classic modes.
We plan to add bike upgrades and different perks to players to choose from before the race.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now you can choose one of three powerful motorcycles and start a deathmatch online.

Online and Local multiplayer.
Training mode.

There are two deathmatch modes available:
— Short Trail will vanish after some time.
— Long (infinity) trail will last until the player dies.

And two maps to ride:
— Simplex brings you fast and violent action in a small place.
— Quadrocopter is a vast map with lots of jumps — better for Long trail mode\
— Pillars”

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

“Price is expected to change after Early Access and maybe even during EA.”

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

“The Community will have a huge impact on the development of the game.
We regularly check our Discussions section, /r/Vive and we encourage everyone to provide feedback and ideas.
With your, help we can build an interesting and unique VR experience!

We going to post GIFs, videos and other work-in-progress stuff so we can get feedback on whether people like the direction.”

“This game is just super fun! I had such a blast playing with it! And it is very simple — two or four people are «doing Tron» on the arenas.”

ALL THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS UPDATED AS THINGS GO:

Qbike Roadmap in Discussions (click to open)

Leaderboards and Performance Points



While we are testing and balancing new skills, you can start practicing in earning points! When the skill set is finished, Performance Points will help you to unlock and upgrade new player abilities.

Your points amount, total wins and kills scores will be added to world wide Qbike Leaderboards.
We plan to upgrade and add more interesting statistics during the development.

Get your scores, rise in the leaderboards and become ultimate arena champion!

Challenges and Multiplicator



  • You can raise your PP by performing various tricks and challenges during the race.
  • Every time you earn 100 PP you receive 1 bar to your total power multiplicator.
  • Every level will multiply your race score until you die. To reach next Multiplicator level you'll need to complete challenges again, but you'll receive more points accordingly to the current Multiplicator level.

Current Challenges Available

We are going to update and expand this list during EA.

The following Challenges add one Multiplicator bar:
  • Destoying opponent's bike
  • Ride under Arch — Sneak under Barrier Arch to get 50 points
  • Maneuver — gives 100 points when fast-killing opponent with your barrier
  • Air Time — starts after one second is spent in the air
  • Drift Time — you can achieve this by making a fast turn before the jump
  • Close Call — gives 50 points every moment while riding close to the opponent

The following Challenges give you bonus scores in the end and during the match:
  • Destroying player's bike gives you 200 points
  • Kills in a row give you 50 on the second, 100 on the third, 150 on the 4th and so on
  • Air Kill gives you 100 bonus points
  • First place — 100 points
  • Win without using Abilities — 100 points
  • Win the match — 100 points
  • Never die during the race — 100 points

Game Modes:


  • Free for all — join others in endless arena deathmatches.
  • Team Deathmatch — Co-Op with your friend against other teams.

  • Short Trail will vanish after some time so you'll need to think more.
  • Long (infinity) Trail will disappear only after the player dies.

MAPS:


You can play on three maps with different game style:

  • Simplex brings you to fast and deadly action in a small place with some jumpers on the map.
  • Pillars is a flat map with no obstacles, good for first-timers.
  • Quadrocopter is a vast map with high jumps. Good for Long Trail mode.

COMFORT OPTIONS


Some people are very sensitive to motion sickness so we made a few tweaks to reduce it in Qbike.

  • The Vignette — Enable this option to gradually reduce your chance to get sick. It will make your player's sight/game screen darker to the sides when extreme motion happens. There are three different styles you can choose.
  • Seat Position — Your seat is placed just right to make your cycle's frame always under your sight. You easily can recalibrate your position to make it more comfortable for yourself anytime.
  • Camera Reaction — You can switch between two modes — one with fixed camera movements (default) for more comfort and one with a free camera, wich follows your bike pitches and rolls (motion sick warning!).

We will keep working to make Qbike comfortable for everyone and always looking for new ideas. If you have some — share them with us!
