It’s just over two weeks since we launched our futuristic VR racer, Neon Seoul: Outrun, on Oculus Early Access.
Today, we’re excited to be bringing the game to Steam Early Access as well—giving a new wave of speed freaks the chance to put their outrunning skills to the test.
Set in the cyberpunk city of Neon Seoul, the game invites you to weave a high-powered hoverbike through streets paved with danger. You’ll need to hug the racing line and avoid countless hazards if you don’t want your journey to come to a crashing halt, and—so far—players have been rising to the challenge. Our earliest outrunners have been racking up thousands of points and insane speeds in the battle to top the leaderboard and see their name up in lights in our weekly high score video. Do you have what it takes to surpass them?
Whether you jump into Neon Seoul: Outrun via Oculus or Steam Early Access, you’ll benefit from a stack of tweaks and updates we’ve just implemented.
The latest build of the game features enhanced visuals that add more life and polish to the world, as well as gameplay improvements that impact the scoring system, HUD, hoverbike calibration and more. For full details of the update, see the build release notes here—or let your trusty Neon Seoul liaison, Coach Kincaid, run you through the highlights.
If the above video is your first encounter with Coach Kincaid, you’ve got a bit of catching up to do. The ever-enthusiastic coach is here to keep you briefed on what’s new in the game, reveal weekly high scorers, and generally entertain you with his unfaltering energy. Be sure to listen carefully when he speaks—he might sound like a crazed wrestler from the future, but he knows what he’s talking about.
To keep up with all Coach Kincaid’s latest videos—as well as lots more from Neon Seoul: Outrun and the world of Playsnak—check out our official Facebook page.
Thanks to everyone who has played the game so far, shared videos of their efforts, and given us feedback on the Early Access build. We hope you’ll keep coming back for more and spreading the word as we continue to enhance the experience.
