Superhot VR (2016), the VR adaptation of the popular time-warping beat ’em up game, just got a fresh update in time for the holidays. Coming alongside some quality of life patches, the update brings a few new features to all platforms that should get you back and punching at crystalline red dudes to your merry heart’s content.

First, a look at the game’s free holiday DLC drop, appropriately called its ‘Boxing Day’ update.

The Boxing Day update brings to the game a new endless level, a new scoring system, and what Superhot Team call a “suitably festive soundtrack.”

The studio says that users who’ve already finished Superhot VR can gain access to the Boxing Day update by loading the Endless floppy disk in the Hacker Room and selecting the Christmas Tree. The endless mode scoring system awards points for punching, dodging, headshots, style shots, and more.

Both PC VR and PSVR versions of the game just got patches too. You can check those out below:
