Back in July 2014 UK-based indie developer Wales Interactive launched a new virtual reality (VR) compatible videogame by the name of Infinity Runner on PC. At the time the title only featured support for the first development kit of the Oculus Rift (DK1). This week however, Wales Interactive has released a new update for its title that contains a host of new improvements that address a range of areas within the videogame. Among them is an overhaul of VR support that includes integration with DK1’s successor, DK2.
The update arrives ahead of Infinity Runner‘s planned launch on home consoles such as PlayStation 4. Along with the improved VR support the title has received an update in the visuals department, now boasting a stylised look, improved texture maps and enhanced post-processing effects. Gameplay itself has been streamlined to create a better flow, with fights seeing some balancing tweaks. The developer also claims that every bug that has been flagged up since the original title’s launch has been fixed.
To celebrate the update’s release, Infinity Runner can be picked up for £2.79 GBP until 13th April 2015 on Steam.
Infinity Runner is set in the distant future on board The Infinity, the largest spaceship ever built. Players are cast as a prisoner on this ship that manages to escape following an outbreak of a werewolf. The protagonist constantly pushes forward, with players avoiding obstacles and defeating enemies as they go. The campaign features 14 levels to complete while a multiplayer mode allows up to 32 players to go head-to-head.
The update could prove to be a big help for Infinity Runner, which VRFocus found in its review to have “too many hurdles to be a recommendation for those looking for an action-orientated VR experience.”
VRFocus will continue to follow Infinity Runner closely, reporting back with any further updates from the title.
