Lyon, France, July 15, 2021 – Independent French studio WanadevStudio is pleased to announce today the release of Ragnarock the rock / metal-oriented VR rhythm game, on Steam. Budding Vikings can now enjoy both the single and multiplayer modes.
Ragnarock is a single-player and multiplayer VR rhythm game in which players take on the role of Viking captains competing against each other in a frenzied longship race. Equipped with their hammers, they must strike the rune drums in rhythm, playing music ranging from Celtic rock to power metal, in order to move their ship forward.
Fun and stylized art direction inspired by Norse mythology transports players to Viking lands through six different environments. Only the most experienced will be able to collect all of the gold medals, beat the best scores, achieve unparalleled combos and put their name on the leaderboard.
The cross-play functionality promises intense battles between players of different platforms. In single player mode, the most fond of competition will be able to face ghost ships.
For its deep multiplayer component (up to 6 players), Ragnarock and its innovative racing concept received the ETR community best multiplayer VR game award developed by a French studio.
