Watch This Action-Filled Trailer for Developer Two Tribe’s Last Game, RIVE

July 31, 2016Written by Zarmena Khan

Dutch developer Two Tribes has released a new trailer for its upcoming title, RIVE, introducing us to the game’s cast. Voiced by Mark Dodson of Star Wars and Gremlins, watch Roughshot (Spidertank pilot) and his robot servant in action above. 

In a subsequent press release, the studio listed the following key features:

Dance of destruction

RIVE’s unique 360-degree shooter/platformer hybrid lets you choreograph a ‘dance of destruction’. It feels like the explosive games of yore, pumping megapixels like it’s 2016.

Roughshot’s story

When space scavenger Roughshot gets trapped on a mysterious starship, he has to form a surprising alliance. Don’t care about the story? Just shoot the messenger. Literally.

Hack those robots

Ever dreamed of controlling your enemies? In RIVE you can. Find the hacks and get those gun turrets, nurse drones and irritable smashbots on your side. Or hitch a ride on top of a bullet train!

Special attacks

Grab an ammo crate and attack with a burst of Falcons, Teslas, Kesslers or Blunders. Is the battle wearing you down? These special attacks will save your behind every single time.

Multiple game modes

RIVE offers an insane sequence of spectacular battles and setpieces. You won’t believe what’s happening to you… and that’s before you even tried the Single-Credit and Speedrun modes.

Interestingly, it looks like the game is no longer coming to Xbox One as initially planned because the latest press release and trailer only mention the PlayStation 4 and PC version. 

Two Tribes will be shutting down after the release of RIVE in September. The developer was in operation for 15 years and worked on titles such as Toki Tori.
