When it comes to anti-grav racing we all think about games likes of F-Zero and Wipeout. And to a lesser extent Extreme-G. When done right the high speed thrills and the sheer intensity or successfully maneuvering around a course can be unlike anything else. Redout, which proudly proclaims to be inspired by some of the best, has already garnered quite the reputation as an exceptional PC racer. And now it's headed to retail with PS4 and Xbox One versions due August 31.
Redout is a tribute to classic anti-gravity racing games. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in the sensory overload that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on an advanced physics model: each turn, slope, hard braking, acceleration, each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship. A sharp low-polygon style blends meshes and terrains with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, creating beautiful and instantly recognizable aesthetics. Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains: the melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi abandoned Earth is the background for high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.
More than just a port the console version will also feature a new split-screen mode.
