It’s the end of an era for Triangle Factory’s Hyper Dash as the SideQuest Alpha version of the game wraps up ahead of full release.
For the past year players have been able to test out this arena-based multiplayer VR shooter for free via SideQuest, the sideloading platform. The game has built up quite a following in that time – it’s been downloaded nearly 150K times on the service. Check out the latest trailer for the game below.
You can no longer download Hyper Dash from the SideQuest page, however, as it just links to the official Oculus Store listing. As Reddit users have found, anyone with the game already installed will just get a message about the full launch at 10am PT on February 25th when booting it up.
Quest isn’t the only platform that Hyper Dash will grace tomorrow. The game’s also coming to SteamVR and Viveport, and there will be cross-buy support with the Rift version too.
Hyper Dash mixes a different number of locomotion options, including rail grinding and (you guessed it) dashing to create a fast-paced VR shooter. The game comes with four game modes including mainstays like deathmatch, as well as the ability to remix modes with mutators. There’s also offline play with bots and dedicated servers. Will all of that be enough for the game to hold its own up against the likes of Onward and Popluation: One? We’ll find out starting this Thursday.
