It has now been almost a year since the game of parkour with sauce Mirror’s Edge is available in early access on Steam and Viveport. The game offered by the studio Joy Way take us on the roofs of a futuristic metropolis. It appeals to discipline mechanics by making us link the phases of jumping, sliding and grappling while taking advantage of the decor such as the walls and cornices. The routes are strewn with pitfalls and enemies that will have to be dodged or eliminated with your bare hand or with our pistol.
A pure concentrate of adrenaline, it offers various game modes:
- Infinite mode : thanks to the infinite generation of procedurally defined levels, the challenge has no limit if not time, because the level disappears behind you, only one thing to do, run and go as far as possible .
- Time trial mode : Bet everything on speed to climb to the top of the leaderboard.
- Arena mode : In a restricted environment, you will have objectives to accomplish such as items to collect and enemies to eliminate.
Compared to its PC counterpart VR, Stride is doing very well graphically, although less advanced in terms of lighting and reflections. The game is basic enough minimalist and reproduces the roofs of a city with tall buildings, terraces, cornices and other air conditioning systems. Level gameplay, it is a carbon copy. PC version VR has recently been given a multiplayer mode. However, there is no official mention of this mode for the standalone version. The trailer itself says nothing more.
The beta phase dedicated to Oculus Quest is therefore coming to an end. Stride will be available on the store Oculus Quest from August 5. The version PSVR is however delayed and is not expected before the end of 2021.
