Frantic Sci-fi Racer JetX Coming to Steam, Demo to be Released Soon
Russian virtual reality (VR) company Fibrum may be well known for its Desirium content platform and creating in-house VR titles, but today the studio has announced it’ll be publishing a new immersive experience by Singularity Lab. The indie developer is in the process of making a rather extreme looking arcade racer called JetX, which is due for release via Steam soon.
Featuring both single-player and multiplayer options with cross-platform gameplay between VR headsets like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, as well as normal PC gamers, JetX is a visceral, no-holds-barred shooter.
There are a multitude of modes available, from traditional track-based races where winning isn’t just about placing first, to arena battles that are a fight to the death. Online you can fight against mates or other opponents from around the world, while single-player features bots for you to practice against. There are also Boss Battles to be had, missions to collect energy cores, missions to defend cores and endless race modes to keep you entertained.
Of course, for this style of racing experience weapons are a must, with Singularity Lab garnishing your craft with a selection of offensive armaments, all of which can be swapped on the fly depending on your preference. You’ll also be able to make use of several powerup options during each mode.
“This is one of our first complete game projects and we are extremely excited to hear any feedback you may have!” says the team in a statement. “The whole team at Singularity Lab has carefully crafted and polished each aspect of the game, in order to bring you the best possible experience.”
Currently, Singularity Labs is aiming for a March launch, on PC and VR headsets. Prior to that taking place, a demo will be released. When dates for the demo and full launch are made available VRFocus will let you know.
