Developer Joy Way is delighted to announce its parkour and combat game STRIDE on the Oculus store is available now.
Called “A worthy Mirror’s Edge VR tribute” by UploadVR, STRIDE is a high octane VR game which fuses parkour and combat to create one of the most nail-biting virtual reality experiences available. Joy Way wants to put players in the shoes of a master free-runner as they vault, swing, roll, and shoot through an intense, action-packed adventure.
STRIDE has been available in Steam via the Early Access program, but has now launched in full on the Oculus store. The game is due to leave Early Access on Steam on November 4th.
STRIDE launches on Oculus with three game modes:
- Endless mode: Infinite procedural level generation provides unlimited challenging terrain to traverse.
- Arena mode: A spacious arena with waves of enemies. Perfect for practicing tricks across a varied terrain and refining shooting skills.
- Time Run. Perfect for testing parkour-at-speed skills in a race against the clock.
A full story mode update is planned for release in 2021.
Joy Way has painstakingly crafted an homage to parkour which feels incredibly close to the real thing. Designed specifically for virtual reality play, the rush of leaping across impossibly wide gaps over dizzying heights is replicated perfectly in STRIDE.
Players can navigate city rooftops like a pro, grabbing ledges, jumping from roof to roof, vaulting through windows, sliding down cables, swinging from hooks; with a near unlimited skill ceiling, anyone can put on their running shoes, but it’ll take some work to truly master the city.
STRIDE is now available on the Oculus store for Oculus Rift devices with Oculus Touch support.
STRIDE will leave Steam Early Access on November 4th.
