Serve up an Ace or Two in Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR

For sports fans with a penchant for virtual reality, Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR is shaping up to be a real treat. Inspired by Sports Champions for PS3, Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR combines the competitive spirit of table tennis with a slick sci-fi aesthetic, and offers players a singleplayer campaign comprised of four challenging cups.

Overall, there are 16 different opponents to face, each of them offering a completely unique play style that is designed to keep gameplay fresh and exciting. Developer 10Ants Hill has taken advantage of motion capture technology to create fluid animations for the game, which were created in collaboration with professional table tennis players. Here’s the full list of features:

  • Singleplayer experience: You’re about to face 16 members of the infamous Division of Steel throughout 4 challenging Cups. Beware! The higher the Cup, the more demanding and troublesome it gets!

  • Challenging AI: Thanks to a particularly advanced Artificial Intelligence in singleplayer, every opponent you’re going to play against will have their own temper and an utterly unique style of play.

  • Ever-growing character: Enhance your skills and become stronger with every match to be able to challenge the most renowned and agile representatives of the Division of Steel.

  • Mocap animations: To deliver the most realistic characters’ movements, we relied upon motion capture data for our animations. The actors participating in the recording were in fact professional table tennis players, which translates each player’s swing into one, fluid motion and makes the rivalry as realistic as possible.

  • Advanced physics: As expected in VR, our aim was to address the simulation aspect of the game to provide the real table tennis experience. However, we did our best to maintain just the right balance between arcade and simulation to provide you with fast-paced, yet immersive gameplay.

  • Multiplayer: Racket Fury offers up not only singleplayer campaigns but also multiplayer mode that allows you to challenge the players from every corner of the world and defeat them with your smart strategy and unbeatable technique.

  • Workshop: Each victory provides you with valuable assets that allow you to develop your unique character. The more skillful you become, the more admirable in your rivals’ eyes you become.

Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR is expected to launch via Steam’s Early Access program this April. Interested players can sign up for the closed beta right here.
