What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“V-RACER HOVERBIKE is already great fun to play. We want to involve our players as much as possible so we can keep our focus on features that deliver a great gaming experience. We want to plan future feature and content development based on community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want to be sure everything is polished and working as intended for our players, with enough content for a long play time and replayability, prior to an official launch. Early access is expected to last between six months and a year.”

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

“Throughout early access, we plan to polish the game, add new weapons, new tracks and new game modes. The full version aims to be a high quality, fun to play and challenging VR experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“V-RACER HOVERBIKE is already a fast and fun experience, easy to learn but hard to master. It has been alpha-tested and tuned to minimize motion sickness and be comfortable for extensive play sessions. We are continuing to improve the game with updates, tweaks and fine tuning, as well as integrating new content for a renewed playing experience over time.”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features, based on the added value of such features.”

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

“Player feedback is key to providing a fun and balanced racing experience in VR. We appreciate the challenge our players throw at us with feature requests, and we invite them to join the converstion on facebook, twitter and the Steam forums.”

MULTIPLAYER AVAILABLE 24/7 STARTING JUNE 15th

Hello racers,

After several months of testing, we're happy to release multiplayer 24/7 on June 15th :-)



Multiplayer offers a time trial and combat mode, with voice over support so you can flame each other while speeding on the track.

We've had quite a few laughs playing it with those of you who helped testing, and we hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do.

As always, Discord is where it's at if you want ot connect with other players and set up multiplayer meetings (click the link inside the game to launch it on your web browser).

So practice your skills and join us for a few laps on the 15th!

The Vertex Breakers team.

NEW TRACK - KOVAS FUSION

KOVAS FUSION
Ok racers, we've got a new track for you!
Today we're releasing the second Kovas track, which brings more jumps and bends to V-Racer. Here's what it looks like:





To give you a clearer idea of where we are going with this: for each environment, we plan to have three tracks. The first is rather flat, and targetted at new racers. The second brings more challenge and sensation, with loops and jumps. We've already released Vigo Reactor showing a bit of what to expect, and today we give you Kovas Fusion. We plan to have a second Zakhar track real soon as well. Once we're done with that, we'll go crazy with Vigo Madness :-)

LIVERY EDITOR
For those who haven't found it already, the livery editor is now accessible in the garage, so you can make your bike shine. We'll tell you more about that in another post, but if you're into painting in VR, make sure to check it out.

And remember, every week-end, you can enjoy multiplayer. Our discord channel is here to help you meet with other players and schedule races.

About This Game

Join the fast-paced racing competition in VR with V-RACER HOVERBIKE !
Ever wanted to ride a futuristic motorbike floating over the ground, fully loaded with lethal weapons? Well, we've got you covered!
Put on your VR Headset and hit the track!
Challenge your friends in time-trial mode and weekly challenges with online ghosts, race against bots in a fun shooting feast, or play play online in multiplayer with up to six racers.

V-RACER HOVERBIKE was designed for VR from the ground up. It's not a port. It can't be played without a headset, as the control system is VR-only.



TRACKS - 16 ALREADY AVAILABLE, AND COUNTING...

From quiet highlands to arid desert mining facility planet, to mega-city planet, you'll race over the galaxy to become the fastest rider of the universe. Will you master the hardest tracks of saturn rings ?

You'll also be able to race on popular Earth tracks from the 20th century, built when cars and bikes still had wheels.

Early access started with 4 tracks, we now have 16 available and 8 more in an advanced production state. Simple tracks are fairly flat, making them comfortable for anyone in VR, and easy to learn. More advanced ones include bends, hills and loops. For players looking for extreme sensations, we will shortly have jumps. For Sim racers, we have six GP tracks, ideal for time trials.



GAME MODES

- TIME TRIAL with online leaderboards : race against your friend's ghost and beat them on the finish line, or go up against world top leaderboard players.
- COMBAT RACE: race against bots, pick up weapons including mines and missiles, and clear your way to the finish line.
- MULTIPLAYER: challenge your friends online in real-time in a race where all hell breaks loose (currently available every weekend)

WEAPONS

Early access started with missiles and mines. Since then we added homing missiles, killer drone, EMP wave and eye gun.
We're eager to hear the crazy ideas the community can come up with for more weapons.

PHOTO MODE
The photo mode lets you pause the race at any time and get on the track to frame some amazing shots of your bike in action, tweak visual fx like depth of field or exposure, and post the result on your steam account

LIVERY EDITOR
Make your bike shine with the livery editor. Choose paint colors, add decals and texts, all in a full VR editor.


- TRACKS: more tracks coming on a regular basis
- WEAPONS: based on community feedback, we will include more weapons to the combat race experience
- CAREER MODE: participate in championships, win stars and XP, and get rewarded for achievements
