'Sparc' (ALL) Gets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive Date

Sparc is a virtual reality sports game where players connect online to compete with each other in fast and fun full-body VR gameplay.

Sparc is a virtual sport, or “vSport” - a unique full-body experience only possible in virtual reality, where the player’s VR equipment is their sports gear.

Sparc enables players to join one-on-one matches with friends online, or find opponents via matchmaking. Sparc includes multiple two-player game modes and three different arenas, plus a broad range of customization options for competitors. From the cut of the compression suit, to headgear and knuckle guards, a wide variety of elements can be personalized.

In Sparc, players can express and improve their skills through their physical actions and will be able to review their performance on the court with stats on throws, deflections, accuracy, and more.  With two gameplay modes, Basic and Advanced, both novice and expert competitors will find a suitable difficulty level.

When players need a break from the action, they can meet opponents, watch games in person, and queue up for their next match in “Courtside,” Sparc’s freeform social area that allows for spectating in VR. In Sparc’s solo challenges, players can take part in a series of timed events that test throwing and deflection accuracy, helping improve their skills and preparing them for human opponents.

Sparc is coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets on PC on November 16th.

“Our goal is to get Sparc into as many hands and onto as many faces as possible,” said Morgan Godat, the game’s executive producer at CCP Games. “Having cross-play between PlayStation 4 and PC means nobody has to worry about their platform of choice.”

Already available for PSVR, players on PS4 and PCs will be able to compete against each other seamlessly.

Sparc also offers players a wide range of avatar customization options. Everything from the cut of their compression suit to the headgear they wear, the look of their “Gloves” and the colors of their gear can be personalized to achieve exceptionally eye-catching styles.
