Survival Racer Distance Comes To PlayStation 4 And VR In 2016


Psychedelic survival racer is Distance coming to both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR in 2016, developer Refract has revealed. One of Refract’s members, Jordan Hemenway made the announcement of Distance‘s new, experimental platform on the PlayStation Blog:

Last year I announced that our survival racer Distance is coming to PS4. Since then we’ve been working hard to add things like random track generation, new story mode content, improved car customization, improved multiplayer features, and we spent some time optimizing so that Distance runs as smoothly as possible.

Today, I can finally announce that we’ve also been working hard to bring Distance to PlayStation VR! This weekend we’ll be showcasing a playable version for the first time at PlayStation Experience in San Francisco!

Never heard of Distance? Not to worry, Hemenway has a handy description for you. Think WipeOut, but with more colour and the ability to drive on the walls and ceilings.

If you’ve never seen Distance before, it’s a survival racing game. Distance takes the intense action of arcade racing and places it in a mysterious, atmospheric world. The road is deadly with treacherous obstacles around every corner. Instead of doing laps on a loop, you’ll be trying to survive from point A to B.
