Sparc, the World’s First Virtual Sport, Launches November 16 on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

– Available now for PlayStation VR, Sparc jumps to new platforms next month with full cross-play between PC and PS4 –
 

CCP Games today announced that Sparc™, the energetic competitive virtual sport currently available on PlayStation® VR, is coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive® headsets for PC on November 16th. Sparc’s unique full-body gameplay is only possible in virtual reality, where players’ VR equipment becomes their sports gear.

Sparc supports cross-play, enabling players on PlayStation 4 and PCs to compete against each other seamlessly. On release, Vive and Rift owners will be able to download Sparc for €19.99 SRP from Steam® and the Oculus Store.

In Sparc, players connect online to compete in fast-paced and physical one-on-one gameplay, using motion controllers to throw projectiles across the court at their opponent while dodging, blocking or deflecting incoming shots.

“Our goal is to get as many players as possible onto the Sparc courts,” said Morgan Godat, the game’s executive producer at CCP Games. “Having cross-platform VR play available on PlayStation 4 and PC means everyone can play together in the same virtual space.”  

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 head gear 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 free form 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.

Further details about Sparc can be found at www.playSparc.com and fans can follow Sparc on Facebook and Twitter.
