VR parkour game, Stride, is coming to Quest and PSVR headsets
Stride, the free running VR title from Joy Way, is currently out in early access for PC VR headsets. The developers have plans to bring the game out for PlayStation VR and they have recently announced their intentions to release the game for Quest headsets.
In a recent press release about their game, Joy Way confirmed their plans for the future:
“We are pleased to announce that Oculus has accepted our concept pitch for putting Stride on Quest. We’ll be working out details like the launch date as we get closer to finishing the Quest port, but we wanted to go ahead and share the good news.
“We are very excited about the Quest port. It has been in development for over three months and we’re making a lot of progress, the team is almost finished working on the technical base of the game. STRIDE was already a graphically ascetic game (for the purposes of better sense of direction and less motion sickness), so we have been able to keep the Quest version very close to the PC version visually, and it plays identically.”
The game currently has three different gameplay modes. Endless tasks players to run as far as possible without dying, Time Run wants players to complete a course under a specified time, and Arena gives players an open area to run around in with various different objectives to complete.
Joy Way have also confirmed that they are planning to release a story mode for the game in Q3 2021. This would be the end of their early access period and would mark their official release. While it is far too early to say, it would make sense that the developers would want to release the game on every possible device for their 1.0 launch.
