Released as a PlayStation VR exclusive late last year, Micro Machines style Mini Motor Racing X will soon be making its way to Oculus Quest and Rift, developer The Binary Mill has announced this week.
The tiny racer franchise was originally a mobile videogame for iOS devices, way before making it leap into virtual reality (VR). Offering both single-player and online multiplayer modes, racers have the choice of playing in-car or via a top-down, overview mode, the latter providing a far more comfortable experience for those unable to race in first-person. There’s even a track-side viewpoint.
With plenty of championships and over 50 courses to master, the Oculus launch will also add new Type X Career and Battle modes for players to tackle, with the multiplayer supporting up to four people online, either head-to-head or co-op.
Levels have multiple day, night and weather variants giving each track an instant replay factor, and there are loads of extra cars to unlock, which can then be suped-up with race winnings.
It’s not purely about racing either. The Bumper Ball mode swaps the track for a football pitch where players have to score goals by gracefully trying to manoeuvre a giant beach ball.
The Binary Mill has confirmed that Mini Motor Racing X will be released next Thursday 14th May. It’ll be cross-buy compatible between the two headsets, retailing for $24.99 USD/£19.99 GBP, the same as the PlayStation VR version.
