Arcade flight sim Race the Sun gets PlayStation VR support with next week’s free update

Plus, brand new Sunrise mode rolled into the game from 18th April

We’re happy to announce a free upcoming update for the PS4 version of Race The Sun, including PS VR support, a new game mode, and a few other extras!

PlayStation VR

Ever since our earliest days with Race The Sun on Kickstarter, some players have been asking for VR support. We’re happy to announce that this is finally happening on April 18th! All game modes will be playable in PS VR. To enable VR, just select the option from the menu. To exit VR mode, simply turn off the headset.


Additionally, we’ve added a free new game mode called Sunrise.

This mode doesn’t have high scores, and doesn’t get increasingly difficult like the other modes. It’s simply a way to chill out and relax!

New portal destinations

We’ve added a few new worlds to be discovered when you enter a portal. Now, instead of always going to Void when entering a portal, you will randomly be taken to one of five destinations.

The portal destination changes daily to keep things fresh.

First person mode

To go along with the PS VR update, we’ve also added an option to play in first person mode. You’ll be able to toggle this via the pause menu, or by using the square button at any time during play. We’ve found that some players find this mode to be more comfortable in PS VR, while some players prefer the standard third person view.

We hope you enjoy the update!

Wow thanks for the free patch! =)
Loved playing this game on my VITA, gonna try it out on the PS4 just to play in VR!


Awesome. VR is a perfect reason to re-install this game.

very good! i’d like to see all other games adding even a simple VR view mode. if you played playroom VR you know how amazing a platform game can be viewed in VR.

Thank you. After seeing ghostbusters release only in the US and learning herocade was releasing only over there too I was beginning to think what was the point. Sony aren’t supporting the VR in Europe so I thank you for giving me a reason to put it back on and revisit this wonderful gem.

Nice new modes, but no update for the PS3 version?
