Heads up, people, it looks like the PS4 just got a brand new racer and they’re calling it RGX Showdown. The game is being released by Telltale Publishing and it’s already available for digital download. It’s a fairly straightforward arcade-style racer and, best of all, it was created by devs who worked on the excellent racing games Split/Second (2010) and Burnout (2009) — you can also check out our recent review of Burnout Paradise Remastered, which hit stores earlier this year.
Anyway, here’s a fast-paced adrenaline-filled launch trailer for ya:
The devs are also highlighted some cool features for racing aficionados in RGX Showdown (which stands for Rival Gears eXtreme Showdown). You can check those out right below:
- Don’t Blink – Barrel down busy highways at breakneck speeds in one-on-one online races. If you’re fast enough, races can last less than a minute, so if you blink, you lose.
- Challenge All – Fresh global tournaments begin on the hour every hour. These big, live multiplayer events are your chance to showcase your skill and style, with new champions crowned every hour and unique rewards for winners.
- Be Driven – Work your way up through the vehicle classes, earning Event Points and Champion Cars along the way. Win or lose, the progression loop respects your time and rewards your efforts.
- Show Off – Use Garage Points from the various events and challenges to unlock new colors and decals. Stand out from the crowd and make sure your rivals remember it was you who handed them defeat.
Once again, RGX Showdown can be downloaded straight away in all regions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for a modest price of $9.99 USD.
RGX Showdown also joined a whole bunch of new PlayStation releases.
