What is Synth Riders?

Freestyle dance and fitness combine in a cyber-infused VR world.

Enter a vividly colourful and deeply immersive musical world that will transform you into a freestyle dance master. Work up a sweat as you groove along to over 58 high-tempo tracks covering a diverse range of genres, with multiple difficulty levels to suit all abilities.

Thanks to the accurate PS VR2 Sense controllers, your hands become spheres that must strike notes and ride along rails, while the PS VR2 headset tracks your movements as you sway to avoid incoming obstacles.  

Enjoy burning calories to the beat and challenge yourself to climb the global leader boards as your skills improve.
