34BigThings recently unleashed Redout onto Steam’s store for $34.99. The Unreal Engine 4-powered racing game is designed for today’s high-end gaming rigs, offering players blazing fast racing gameplay set across 20 distinct tracks that span four locations around a post-apocalyptic Earth.
If you’ve been a fan of games like Acclaim’s Extreme-G series or Nintendo’s beloved F-Zero, then Redout will likely be right up your alley. The game allows you to go toe-to-toe against 11 other players in online race modes, or attempt to become the king of the race track in a career mode that features more than 75 different events. Players will level-up their pod, upgrade their parts and vie to become the champion.
It’s not all just racing, though. Redout also features seven different event types, including standard races, point races and an arena mode. There’s also power-ups that can be utilized throughout each of the races to give your pod an advantage over opponents. You can get a brief look at the high-end Unreal Engine 4-powered racing game in action below.
The Kickstarted racer looks fantastic. The game is also supposed to be arriving on the home consoles at some point as well. With the PlayStation VR due to drop in October, I wonder if 34BigThings will take advantage of that opportunity?
Speaking of VR, the game does have native support for the Oculus VR headset. So if you want to take the racing experience to the next level, you can very well do so.
The early user reviews for Redout are quite positive. Many people are calling it the F-Zero replacement they were looking for.
I love the way the game looks and some of those pods look similar to the Star Wars Episode 1: Pod Racer game for the N64, which was one of the best Star Wars games made back during that time. That game was insanely fun.
Anyway, Redout is available right now for $34.99 but for the first week of being on sale you can get the game for 10% off the normal price for only $31.49 over on the Steam store.
