andrewComments Off on Thumper Releases to NA Region A Few Days Early
Dropping a few days ahead of schedule, Thumper will be available for PS4 and Steam users in North America TODAY, October 10th. The stores should update around 3PM PST and it will be $19.99 for both Steam and PS4. This comes as a surprise to those who’ve been waiting for Thumper and gives some the ability to play a bit sooner. All other regions for PS4 will see the game available on October 13th.
Thumper will also support PS4 Pro on day one as well. The PS4 Pro will render Thumper up to 4K resolution (no upscaling at all) for the very best super high gloss HD experience. The PS4 Pro will also enhance the VR rendering quality while keeping the 90fps frame-rate.
PC VR support
Support for Oculus and Vive VR headsets will come to Thumper later this year. Unfortunately I don’t have any further information for you all.
In case you weren’t aware after reading all that, Thumper is a rhythm violence game by Drool releasing on PS4 (including PSVR support) and Steam. It’s classic rhythm-action, high speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future. I got to play this on PSVR at PAX East earlier this year and was super blown away by the experience. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s loud. Get yourself a good pair of headphones and really immerse yourself in the experience.

You’ve probably seen my coverage of this game here, some of my tweets about it (#arcadeisnotdead), and one time we did an on-the-floor podcast here. What I’m trying to get across is that I’ve had some time on this game, and getting to see how much more polished it is from the last time I […]
