After CCP Games’ unexpected retreat from VR earlier this week, people expected their current VR titles, including EVE: Valkyrie and Sparc, to kind of fade away into the ether. But the company is still supporting these popular VR titles in their repertoire and sticking to the updates they had announced for them. One of these includes adding cross-platform support for Sparc. Yup, the VR sports game is still coming to Rift and Vive this month as planned. And you don’t have to worry about the servers either because those are still going to be up and running without a hitch.
So, the Tron-like VR sports game that originally launched for PSVR in August, is now coming to Steam for Rift and Vive on November 16. Cross-platform play with anyone who owns the game on Playstation VR will also be supported. And I’m sure the influx of new players will be a welcome addition too.“Our goal is to get Sparc into as many hands and onto as many faces as possible,” said Morgan Godat, the game’s executive producer at CCP Games. “Having cross-play between PlayStation 4 and PC means nobody has to worry about their platform of choice.” Sparc is expected to go for around $20 when it releases.
Get Ready For The Workout Of Your Virtual Life
If you haven’t heard of Sparc before, then strap in for some adrenaline boosting fun in the form of a virtual dodge-ball game. Don’t think this will be easy though – even though it doesn’t take place in reality, Sparc is still very much a skill-based sport. Inside a virtual arena you’ll go up against real opponents and will have to defend yourself from incoming projectiles by dodging (of course), blocking, or deflecting them back towards your opponent. Though if you need a moment to catch your breath then you can always sit and watch the matches on ‘courtside’.
For those wondering about the content, Sparc has two gameplay modes, Basic and Advanced, so you can match up with players who more closely matches your skill. The gameplay takes place over three different arenas and there are multiple customization options for your avatar.
So if you’re looking for the workout of your virtual life, then make sure to get Sparc when it releases for Vive and Rift on November 16.
