Rival Stars Horse Racing: VR Edition Gallops Onto Meta Quest platform and Steam VR in Q4 2024

Giddy up close and personal with the most immersive equine sportsmanship game ever

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – April 30, 2024 – Rival Stars Horse Racing: VR Edition, the debut VR entry in the world’s most successful horse racing and equestrian mobile game franchise of all time from developer PikPok, canters towards a Meta Quest Store and Steam VR launch in Q4 2024 and a to-be-confirmed launch on Apple Vision Pro.

An all-new entry in the beloved Rival Stars Horse Racing series is a built-from-the-ground-up VR experience offering the most immersive take on horse racing and the equestrian lifestyle ever made. Step into the stirrups for a first-person experience of raising a world-class stable of foals into future raceway and cross-country champions. 

Aspire to bring home the trophy by taking on the prestigious role of stable master. Breed horses to discover new eye-catching coats and patterns. Form a connection with the stable’s rosters across all stages of their lives through rewarding grooming, feeding, and bonding interactions. When they’re ready for showtime, train them for competition, then take command as the jockey with lifelike, intuitive controls — just pick up the reins and ride!

Explore the ranch’s leafy landscape, ride to uncover new locations in Story Mode, and further develop jockey skills in Multiplayer racing modes. Feel the breeze in an immersive experience for both horse fans and VR enthusiasts alike, perfectly recreating the equestrian lifestyle through gameplay mechanics and character interactions.

“We’re very excited to reveal the next evolution of our Rival Stars Horse Racing franchise,” said Mario Wynands, CEO of PikPok. “It will allow players to get closer to their horses than ever before and feel the thrill of riding, racing, and bonding with them.”

Rival Stars Horse Racing: VR Edition will arrive on Meta Quest 2 & Meta Quest 3 and Steam VR in Q4 2024 with English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean language support. For more information, visit the official website, and wishlist on the Meta Quest Store and Steam today!
