Zwift and Wahoo RGT released significant game updates in the span of two weeks, marking another giant leap forward for virtual cycling.
The indoor cycling season is ramping up as the temps dip colder in parts of the world, but the battle to elevate the standard is heating to a boil. In the next phase of virtual cycling’s one-upmanship, the two major players have released significant game updates in the span of two weeks that raised the experience bar even further for its users.
On October 25, 2022, Wahoo-RGT announced the release of several highly sought upgrades. “Daylight savings mark the start of the indoor training season for many,” according to Wahoo spokesperson Dana Berry-Monroe, “so we timed our exciting new features and updates to launch at this time.” The release included the first-of-its-kind Voice Chat feature and several other elements.
Zwift responded on November 9, 2022, with a package of improvement upgrades highlighted by the addition of never-before-ridden virtual roads to the delight of its subscriber base. The November 2021 introduction of Neokyo, Zwift’s take on the neon lights and hustle-bustle of urban Tokyo, included the serene coastal landscape of the fictional Makuri Islands.
