Whip It back a few decades with the Synth Riders 80s Mixtape drop this week

Synth Riders is definitely the music rhythm VR experience that keeps on giving, so today, Kluge Interactive revealed the latest content expansion for the game in the form of ’80s Mixtape – Side A DLC.

Featuring 5 new ’80s tracks including Take On Me by a-ha, Whip It by DEVO, We Built This City by Starship, Sussudio by Phil Collins and New Sensation by INXS, the first ’80s Mixtape content (we’re assuming there will be a Side B one day?) will set players back $1.99 per track or $7.99 for the whole bundle.  The drop becomes available for most platforms (Meta Quest, Steam VR) beginning tomorrow, April 18th although PS VR2 owners will have to wait until Tuesday, April 23rd.

Have a look at the new trailer and stay tuned for more!
