34BigThings’ fast and furious racer Redout releases today on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, finally leaving the confines of the PC. However, European racing fans will have to wait just a little longer for the game’s release, as the title won’t hit European shores until August 31. Redout: Lightspeed Edition is $39.99, or 29.99£.

Here’s more information about Redout from the developers:

Redout: Lightspeed Edition offers pilots a competitive career mode, where they can carve out a path to glory with more than 100 different racing events. The challenge includes 11 event types ranging from Time Attacks to Races, Endurances, Arena Races and even Speed and Survival. Pilots will progress through four increasingly faster racing classes, picking of seven racing teams, each with its own unique design, driving style, strengths and weaknesses. Ships can be upgraded by investing in the Engine, Magnets, Structure or Energy to gain a competitive edge, and by installing upgradable power-ups like additional Turbo, Advanced Grip System, Slipstream Enhancer, and many more.

Redout is the visually stylish, brutally fast AG racing game that conquered PC gamers in 2017. The physics-based driving model makes the driving experience fast, furious and uncompromising, much like the venerated racing titles it takes inspiration from. The shiny shading and lighting effects provided by the Unreal Engine 4, applied to a sharp low-polygon style create a beautiful and instantly recognizable aesthetic. Set in 2560, the racing league of the future takes place on a semi-deserted, post-apocalyptic Earth, and in and around the colonized planets and moons of the Solar System, such as Neptune and Europa.

Redout: Lightspeed Edition is out now on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Will you be picking this racing title up?
