PS VR owners can download Sparc now for $29.99/ €29.99/£22.99SRP from the PlayStation®Store.

CCP Games released a launch trailer:

“From learning the basics of the game to perfecting a trick shot that drops into an opponent’s strike zone at the last second, gamers of all skill levels will be able to compete in Sparc’s dynamic physical gameplay,” said Morgan Godat, the game’s executive producer at CCP Games.

Sparc enables players to join one-on-one matches with friends online, or find opponents via matchmaking. Sparc includes multiple two-player game modes and three different arenas, plus a broad range of customization options for competitors. From the cut of the compression suit, to headgear and knuckle guards, a wide variety of elements can be personalized.
