Great news, futuristic racing fans – the WipEout-inspired Redout is launching soon. Very soon, in fact. As soon as next week. Developer 34BigThings confirmed that Redout will be racing onto Steam on September 2nd, with console versions to follow early next year.
Redout is a fast futuristic racing game inspired by the likes of WipeOut, F-Zero and Rollcage. 34BigThings describe Redout as an "uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre."
Redout also features advance physics for the craft: "The floating system and driving models are based on physics: each turn, slope, hard braking, acceleration, each turn and twist of the track will apply a unique force to the ship."
We've been fans of Redout's dazzling visual style since it was first announced. The developer describes Redout's visuals as "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 recognisable aesthetics. Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes, vast desert plains: the melancholic, dystopian atmosphere of a semi abandoned Earth is the background for the most high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes."
In short, Redout is the "fastest game ever made" according to the developer. We look forward to testing their claim when Redout launches on Steam next week. You can preorder Redout on Humble Bundle for £21.59 with 20% off.
We'll have more coverage on Redout coming shortly including gameplay footage and a developer interview from Gamescom.
