Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR Adds Cross-Platform Multiplayer
Pixel Edge Games released Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR just over a year ago in 2017 for HTC Vive, and in that time has expanded support to include Oculus Rift, Oculus Go and PlayStation VR. This week the studio announced its biggest update yet for the title, adding cross-platform gameplay for PC players.
While the PC version has always supported online multiplayer that feature has always been between the same headsets. Now Oculus Rift and HTC Vive users can go head to head. The PC version also includes friends support, a day and night version, voice chat support plus improvements to SteamVR.
As for the Oculus Go version, that now includes multiplayer for the first time (not cross-platform), plus the day/night mode, and a new practice mode. The main addition, however, is the inclusion of serving for the first time – no small feat when you consider the controller is purely 3DoF – bringing the mobile version even closer to the PC edition.
And for those of you who own the PlayStation VR version don’t fret. While there’s no update just yet, Pixel Edge Games has confirmed to VRFocus that the new 2.0 update will be arriving soon for the headset. When we have a date we’ll let you know.
VRFocus reviewed the PlayStation VR version at launch in October, giving it three stars, saying: “Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR is a good table tennis simulator with great physics and a pleasant backdrop, but the lack of multiplayer and strange absence of music leave holes in what would otherwise be a very satisfying title.” So the update should improve the title a whole lot further.
Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR can be purchased through Steam for £15.49 GBP, while the PlayStation VR version is currently on sale with 57 percent off, retailing for £7.99 instead of £18.99. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
