Race The Sun Update Adds PS VR Support, Sunrise Mode & More April 18th

Sunrise mode is an extra-chill new mode in the already-quite-chill Race the Sun, and that's just one of its many updates landing April 18.

We’re happy to announce a free upcoming update for the PS4 version of Race The Sun, including PS VR support, a new game mode, and a few other extras!

VR
Ever since our earliest days with Race The Sun on Kickstarter, some players have been asking for VR support. We’re happy to announce that this is finally happening on April 18th! All game modes will be playable in VR. To enable VR, just select the option from the menu. To exit VR mode, simply turn off the headset.
Sunrise
Additionally, we’ve added a free new game mode called Sunrise.
This mode doesn’t have highscores, and doesn’t get increasingly difficult like the other modes. It’s simply a way to chill out and relax!
New Portal Destinations
We’ve added a few new worlds to be discovered when you enter a portal. Now, instead of always going to Void when entering a portal, you will randomly be taken to one of five destinations.
The portal destination changes daily to keep things fresh.
First Person Mode
To go along with the VR update, we’ve also added an option to play in first person mode. You’ll be able to toggle this via the pause menu, or by using the square button at any time during play. We’ve found that some players find this mode to be more comfortable in VR, while some players prefer the standard behind view.

We hope you enjoy the update!

Will any of this (obviously not PS VR support) make it into the PS Vita version?

Very cool. It’s things like this that keep me from buyers remorse over my PSVR. I love it. Great job, great game. The Vita idea is good too.
