Futuristic Racer RedOut Gets PlayStation 4 Release Later This Year

Developer 34BigThings released their futuristic racing game RedOut on PC last year, and have been working on console ports ever since then. The good news is that console players won’t have to wait much longer to play the WipeOut-inspired game, as publisher 505 Games announced that a retail and digital release is “coming soon.” Check out the minute-long announcement trailer above to see the fast-paced, stylish racer in action.

Here’s the official description of the racing title from the announcement trailer’s description:

Redout is a tribute to the old racing monsters such as F-Zero, WipeOut, Rollcage, and POD. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in that vertigo that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. 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. 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 the most high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.

RedOut is available now on PC, and is expected to come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch later this year.
