Rez Infinite Surprise Releases on the PC Today, Supports the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

Oh wow, there it is!

After years of re-releases and improvements, Rez is finally heading to PC when Rez Infinite becomes available for both desktop PCs and VR headsets like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive today, August 9. To celebrate, Rez Infinite will be available at a special price with free digital deluxe DLC available for the first two weeks.

Rez Infinite first came out in 2016 for the PlayStation 4/PlayStation VR. Since then, the game has amassed numerous awards, including best VR Game at the 2016 Game Awards. Pretty impressive for a title that's been in the gaming lexicon since the Dreamcast era. This release however, marks the first time Rez has been available on the PC.

Rez Infinite on the PS4

For the first two weeks, players can get the Digital Deluxe DLC for free with purchase of the game. The DLC includes a 7-track Area X digital soundtrack sampler by Hydelic, a digital excerpt of the retrospective art book coming from iam8bit, and over 20 desktop wallpapers and avatars.

"We are extremely excited to finally bring Rez/Rez Infinite to PC. It was a long time coming but now we have the best version yet," said Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi in a statement.

Rez Infinite on PC will support 4K support, advanced graphic options, and supports both desktop mode, or VR mode for either the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Rez Infinite will also be coming to Google's mobile VR headset, Daydream, later this year.

Rez Infinite was previously available for the PS VR and PS4. At the time, we called it the best launch game for the PS VR headset. However, with today's surprise release, is available for the major VR consoles sans the Gear VR. Which is weird because it's coming for the Daydream later. Oh well.
