HyperBlade VR on steam
Hyperblade: “Local Multiplayer” Split-Screen scenario.
Local Multiplayer allows 2-4 players to play against each other in third person view on a split screen. Players are able to choose between any of the game modes and it features full keyboard+mouse and gamepad support. Players are able to choose the style of split screen they find most comfortable.
1. Time Attack Solo or Multiplayer Race.
Players build a personal high score list that is made up from their own races and those played against their friends. Rather than a global and impersonal high score list, the players will have a personal connection to every time on the list. Pickups are present on the map that can boost speed, mess up your controls or freeze your opponent in their spot. All the pickups have a chance of targeting the player who picks them up instead. Every choice is a gamble.
2. Multiplayer – Combat
While similar to the Time Attack mode, the combat mode adds weapons and additional combat related pickups. Drones will be Outfitted with one of three weapons, a machine gun, laser, or pulse beam weapon. Players may also pickup single use missiles And EMP mines along with repairs in addition to the regular pickups.
3. Arena – Split Screen or Multiplayer
Arena mode resembles the Arena of a first person shooter. Players spawn into random areas armed and ready to blow up their opponents. All pickups are present adding to the chaos. The arena mode lasts for a certain time limit chosen by the players before they start. At the end the one with the most kills is the winner.
VR mode allows the player to participate in any of the single player or online multiplayer modes except in first person VR mode. VR users may freely play against non-VR users.
5. Peer to Peer multiplayer and Server Travel

Both the end of the match and pre-match waiting areas feature a chat system and voice
