"VR Mad Max" - Ground Runner: Trials

Following the wholesale destruction of thousands of futuristic hoverbikes, Independent game developer Astrofish Games today announced that its FPS vehicle-based VR shooter Ground Runner: Trials has left Early Access. Available for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality, the game fuses FPS action, intense vehicle combat and hands-only controls to create a truly immersive and intense gaming experience.

In the game, players take on the role of a Ground Runner: a scavenger whose job is to scour the mining planet on a technologically advanced hoverbike, searching for the extremely powerful and sought after Torsion Crystals, all while being relentlessly hunted themselves. To survive, they’ll need to outrun and outgun the shadowy Corporate Alliance that will do everything in their power to acquire these crystals across multiple large-scale maps and a single-player campaign. Players can also jump straight into the action on Arcade Mode, completing objectives on a dedicated map four times larger than the campaign maps.

The hover-bike is fully upgradeable, as players convert loot into credits to ensure they keep the edge over the Corporate Alliance. Players can use credits to improve their bikes thrust, handling and power. Scavengers will also need to ensure they are locked and loaded, with a range of deadly weapons to choose from. For an extra punch, weapons can also be dual-wielded and available tools for waging wholesale destruction include rocket launchers and beam cannons.


  • Fully upgradable hoverbike with 360-degree view hands-only controls for total


  • Varied weapons (single and duel-wielded) including Electro-Pulse, Rocket Launcher, Beam Cannon and more

  • Multiple large-scale maps to traverse

  • Single-player campaign for players to conquer
