Just in time to celebrate the second anniversary of Synth Riders’ release, Kluge Interactive introduces the biggest free update to the game to date. The lavish “Spin Mode” update is packed with new features, including groundbreaking spinning experience which lets the players enjoy the unconstrained freedom of dancing. The update is rolling out today on the Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Steam VR, and Viveport.
The star of the show is a “Spin Mode” that introduces 90, 180, 360, and 360+ overhead spins to every song and difficulty in the game. In this mode, orbs and walls come from various directions making for an even more immersive and engaging experience.
The unique thing about “Spin Mode” is that the spinning works not only in the entire 40 track OST but also in players’ favorite custom songs thanks to the carefully crafted algorithm. Spins will work exactly the same every time in a given song, difficulty level, spinning angle and intensity. It is good news for the players who like to master specific maps and compete with others in the leaderboards – or in the multiplayer mode.

This free update also introduces “Play Profiles” that allows the players to easily access their favorite combinations of modifiers to match the type of play experience they want to have. Players can choose from a selection of predefined profiles such as Dance, Force, and Spin, or create and share their own unique combinations. “Play Profiles” can be played in the Multiplayer Mode and each of them comes with their own scores thanks to a brand new filterable leaderboard system.
The developers are also excited to introduce a new free track “Star Fighter” from the fantastic Danish synthwave and retro-electro artist, Wice. With a punchy bassline and soaring synth leads, this 2017 classic is a perfect song to take for a spin!
A full list of new features includes:
- Spin Mode – 90, 180, 360, 360+ spins with three levels of intensity
- Play Profiles – a new way of organizing and sharing modifiers
- Refined onboarding – prompting comfort and accessibility settings
- A new song – “Star Fighter” by Wice
- A new stage – “Spin City” dedicated to the Spin Mode
- A new modifier – “Vanish Notes” for the most experienced players
- Tightened Hit Accuracy – reduced colliders on Hard, Expert and Master levels
- New Leaderboards – unified and filterable
“We are excited to let our players experience Spin Mode, which enhances every song currently available in the game. Synth Riders is offering an improved workout potential activating the whole body. It’s also a great addition for the Multiplayer Mode, making it even more entertaining and fun to play when the orbs spin all around the player.”
