Boxing-Centered VR Train Sport BoxVR Now On PSVR
FitXR’s BoxVR has been around in the PC VR scene for nearly two years, offering a dedicated VR exercise experience that focuses on emulating the cardio benefits of boxing. It uses a rhythmic boxing mechanic similar to Audioshield or Sound Boxing, but these days, of course, the main comparison is going to be Beat Saber.
The main advantage of BoxVR is that it is not just an active music game that offers additional fitness benefits, but rather focuses solely on helping you get fit. During the experience, not only will you hit objects as they approach, but you will parry, dodge, and deflect them to really simulate the feeling of battle and constant movement.
BoxVR was also developed by a team of fitness trainers who provided their expertise to create a variety of specially choreographed workout routines just for BoxVR. The game also features calories that will be burned over time.
With the latest version of BoxVR on PSVR, there are over 50 new music tracks from the previous Early Access PC VR release, spanning a total of 110 styles. A total of 11 new routines round off the whole thing to 45, each written only for BoxVR. You can now also create custom playlists using the MyWorkouts feature and a more sophisticated user interface. As a PSVR game, of course, it also includes trophies.
In total, BoxVR users burned over 75 million calories across all platforms. Later this month, when the Oculus Quest kicks off May 21st, BoxVR will be included on the first day. The PSVR output is available now for $ 29.99 with the steam Version available for $ 19.99.
