First revealed in October 2017, motorbike mayhem Steel Rats is set to release on November 7, 2018. The arcade action-inspired combat racer is billed as a “visceral” and “groundbreaking” evolution of the 2.5D arcade genre.
Players will be able to switch between four characters, who can be upgraded. You’ll be tasked with saving your city from a robot army invasion, utilizing “death-defying” stunts.
