Enhance Games announced that its multi-award winning game, Rez Infinite, launched on Steam and Oculus Home today. Originally released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR in October 2016, Rez Infinite quickly earned high praise from critics and audiences globally, being touted as “the killer game for virtual reality by many. In addition to being the top rated PlayStation VR title on Metacritic, Rez Infinite has collected over 40 awards and nominations including Best Virtual Reality Game Winner at The Game Awards 2016 and a nomination for the Audio Achievement category at BAFTA 2017.
“We are extremely excited to finally bring Rez Infinite to PC. It was a long time coming but now we have the best version yet,” said Enhance Games’ founder and Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi. “With 4K support, up to double the texture quality, advanced graphic options as well as multiple controller options, we hope to introduce our game to a new audience who’ve never played Rez before and those who haven’t picked it up in a while. It can also finally be experienced in virtual reality with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.” Enhance Games also announced it will be releasing Rez Infinite for Daydream later this year.
Rez Infinite is one of the best games I’ve ever played and it’s a lot of fun. It’s great that it’s finally available on more capable hardware because the PlayStation VR pales in comparison to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The game looks even better now and is a testament to game design. When I initially played it I had issues with the muddy visuals but the fact that they increased the texture quality and made everything that much sharper helps. I can’t wait to play it on PC and if you should too if you’re looking for a rather hardcore old school-like experience.
Experience 360 degrees of mind-blowing synesthesia as you blast your way through waves of enemies and massive transforming bosses, with your every move triggering colors and sounds that sync and blend to the beat of the legendary techno soundtrack of Rez. Whether you choose to play in standard desktop mode or opt for the full immersion of playing in virtual reality, Rez Infinite must be seen—and heard—to be believed. The game is the ultimate version of the beloved psychedelic rail-shooter adventure Rez, originally released in 2001 by Sega. Now, over 15 years later, fully remastered, the latest form of Rez is infinitely improved and evolved for a new generation of hardware and its gamers.
