Lanebreak, A Video Game From Peloton, Is Now Available


    Peloton announced today that their Lanebreak in-app video game is now accessible to Bike and Bike Plus owners after months in beta. Peloton has some less dramatic news: The Lanebreak in-app video game is now available for Peloton Bike and Bike Plus users. Lanebreak can be found in the “More Rides” option on a Peloton bike’s tablet in the bottom right corner.
    Lanebreak can be found in the “More Rides” option on a Peloton bike’s tablet in the bottom right corner. The game itself resembles Tron’s light cycle. It also incorporates aspects from rhythm games. By moving the resistance knob on the bike, you may move between six simulated “lanes.” The bigger the resistance, the further right you travel.
    There are further game aspects relating to your resistance and pedaling speed, which Peloton refers to as “Moments.” “Beats,” for example, are blue bars that award points for staying in a specific lane. Breakers are orange areas where you should ride faster, while Streams are green sections where you should keep inside a certain cadence range.

    Peleton Levels

    The games are accessible at three levels, according to Peloton: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. You can pedal to a variety of music genres, as well as David Bowie remixes and David Guetta tracks. Peloton also claims that it will begin with 20 levels and would continue to introduce new ones on a regular basis. There’s also a leaderboard if you’re the competitive type.
    For a long time, we’ve known Lanebreak was on the way. Peloton first teased the video game in July, although it was still in beta at the time. Then, earlier this month, Google revealed that Stadia would be decommissioned in favor of supporting game experiences for other firms, including Peloton’s Lanebreak. As a result, the timing is reasonable.

    What’s More?

    Metric gamification is often employed in fitness apps, and connected fitness gaming is on the rise. Fitness games, on the other hand, can be found on consoles (Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure, Just Dance, and so on) or in the metaverse. Les Mills, for example, has just released its own virtual reality boxing game. Lanebreak is unique in that it is the first in-app video game for a fitness streaming service.
    Despite the fact that the game has been in development for months, its official release coincides with recent comments from new Peloton CEO Barry McCarthy. McCarthy stated in an interview with The Financial Times that he sees Peloton as a “connected fitness firm, not a bike company,” and that his future strategy will be content-focused.

    Concluding Notes

    Peloton’s decision to debut a new product in the midst of its corporate upheaval may appear unusual. However, it is believed that the corporation is working on some major initiatives. Peloton is rumored to be in the testing stages for a linked rower, according to the same FT article, with a probable reveal in May. It’s also rumored to be developing a new dedicated strength training system to compete with Tonal. Finally, the Peloton Guide, a camera-based strength training device introduced in November, has yet to arrive.
