The bike will ship with four games made with Unity 3D, as well as access to streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and more. Streaming content can also be integrated with a “gamification” mode that will have the screen go blurry or dark if you not maintaining the exercise intensity you’ve set.
While more games and experiences are in development in addition to Playpulse’s plan to create an open API for third-party developers, the four launch games are as follows;
- Pedaltanks – Capture the flag and win the war in this epic multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game. Pick your own tank, each with different stats and abilities. Then start to pedal and use the strength of your tank to cooperate with your teammates and beat the opposing team!
- Bumpercars – What do you get when you put Bumper Cars in space? An epic arcade game. Bump your way to victory by knocking opponents off the tracks. Watch out though, your opponent get smarter every minute and are constantly finding new ways to attack. How long can you outsmart them?
- Heat Street – Navigate colorful worlds, wisely use power ups to gain tactical advantage, and find the best shortcuts to beat the opponents. Keep your cool though, if you push your vehicle too hard it might just overheat and you`re out of the race. Each vehicle has unique statistics and power ups suited for its personality.
- Helios – A roguelite runner. Explore new worlds with Helios, your trusted spaceship. Collect valuable resources and upgrades as you pilot your ship across planets. Find the best paths and watch out for obstacles as you work your way through the different segments of your planetary exploration. Sure, Helios is a rugged ship, but there’s a limit to the beating it can take. Hit too many obstacles and you’ll have to start over.

For those looking for a more traditional workout experience, there will also be the Playpulse Studio that allows users to choose between different workouts that will automatically adjust resistance and show the speed you are aiming for.
There are also exercise goals that you can set, both in the games and apps, that will help you reach your goals.
The Playpulse One has an MSRP of $1,999 USD, but it can be pre-ordered for a limited time with a 40% discount, making the bike $1,199 USD. Additionally, the ever-growing content library that includes all the above is made available via Playpulse LIVE, which will cost an optional $19.99/month following the trial period.
As of this writing, the first batch of shipments are sold out, and pre-orders for the second batch are set to ship in December 2021.
