Superhot VR is one of our favorite Oculus Touch launch titles. Like many of the best VR games so far, the thing we craved the most was more. A new update will extend the replayability of the game with several new modes that amp up the challenge.
In Superhot VR, time only moves when you do. Which means if a bullet is flying at your face and you freeze in place, it will freeze to. That gives you some time to think your way out of the situation—which probably means narrowly dodging the bullet and then making a well-aimed knife throw at the enemy, before pausing again to assess viable solutions to the next most pressing threat. It’s a novel mechanic that uniquely thrives in VR. We gave Superhot VR a 9.1 out of 10 in our full review.
Now the developers have announced the ‘Forever update’, coming next month, which will extend the replayability of the game with new challenge modes, and some undisclosed “Secrets” for players to explore:
- Test your aim where only headshots take out enemies
- Race against your best score in bullet time and real-world time
- Try to complete the game without shooting
- Get hardcore with faster enemies and less reaction time
There’s also the 10-minute challenge, which tasks players with completing the entire game in 10 minutes (we mentioned we craved more content from this game, right?).
As this information comes from an entry on the official Oculus Blog, it seems Oculus may be working more closely with the developers to expand the game’s offering. According the post, the above is “just a taste of what the update has in store,” and further implies that there will be more updates to come.
