Synth Riders has been one of the most popular VR rhythm titles on the market since it released a few years back and part of the reason it has continued to remain relevant is due to how often developer Kluge Interactive releases new content for the game. Well, that trend has continued once again this week as a new slate of music from a variety of popular rock bands have now made their way into Synth Riders.
The latest music pack for Synth Riders, which is being dubbed the “Adrenaline” pack, is the fourth such piece of DLC that the game has received. The add-on content contains eight new songs in total with Kluge Interactive giving all players access to three of the tracks for no cost at all. The other five songs, however, do have to be paid for like normal. In total, Synth Riders now boasts a tracklist that contains 55 that come packed-in with the game and 20 DLC tracks.
What’s great about this DLC, as mentioned, is that it contains some recognizable music from some of the most beloved punk and rock bands of all-time. The five paid tracks contain music from The Offspring, Bad Religion, Rancid, and The Interrupters. Meanwhile, the three free songs come from Pennywise, Too Close To Touch, and Plague Vendor. This lineup of music continues the recent trend of seeing music from rock bands, in particular, coming to Synth Riders. Just a few months back, Kluge Interactive added a song from Muse to the game as well.
And while the addition of new music on its own might be enough to get many interested in this Adrenaline music pack, the team behind Synth Riders has one more very special update with this new content. Much like the previous Muse track, the game has now received its second “Experience” for Synth Riders. Essentially, this mode allows players to experience The Offspring’s “Come Out and Play” in a whole new manner, with a tailor-made environment having been created by Kluge Interactive to match up with the music that is playing. Best of all, this Experience is free of charge as well.
“Where the experience for Muse’s ‘Algorithm’ was set on a grand scale, made to match that epic song, this time I wanted to take players on a different ride!” explained Abraham Aguero Benzecri, the creative director of Synth Riders. “It’s filled with visuals that drew from my experience as a skater in my teens – I wanted to recreate that rush, that feeling of speed and freedom, and was inspired by the raw energy of this track by The Offspring!”
Again, nothing that is being added here is going to drastically change the Synth Riders experience as we know it, but it’s so great to see that Kluge Interactive continues to support this game in such a substantial way. If you use VR for the purposes of working out, it’s always awesome to have some new songs in the rotation to help you get in a good swear.
Synth Riders is available to download right now and is compatible across Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, Valve Index, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. To pick the game up for yourself, you can find it on Viveport, Steam, or the Oculus Store. And if you’re looking to buy the game sometime soon, you might want to take advantage of the current sale that Kluge interactive is running as of this writing.
Conversely, if you’re looking to solely pick up the Adrenaline pack on its own, you can buy the full slate of new songs for around $8. And if you’d rather buy each track individually, they’re all for sale on their own for $1.99.
