If fast futuristic racing videogames such as F-Zero and Wipeout where always your favourite titles, then a new release from 34BigThings, Redout has just launched on Steam.
Featuring support for virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR, Redout is an anti-gravity racer which includes both single-player and multiplayer modes.
The single-player career mode has over 75 events to complete, with 20 tracks set around 4 locations on a post-apocalyptic Earth. There are even boss circuits included. Players will be able to create their own racing story, choosing between six teams, each requiring a different driving approach, with four racing classes to test those cornering skills in, each increasingly faster than the other.
As for multiplayer, racers will be able to match up with 12 players for a proper challenge, racing the tracks they’ve learnt in career mode and using them to full advantage to win races.
To help player compete in the higher stages Redout has an upgrade system so that when players gain experience and level up they’ll be able to add new features to their ships. To add to this over ten power ups are available to give racers the edge, such as additional turbo, shields, self-repair drone, advanced grip system, slipstream enhancers, and more. These power ups are also upgradeable for even more customisation options.
At the moment developer 34BigThings is currently offering a limited time discount for Redout. Until 9th September 2016 Steam users can get 10 percent off Redout, dropping the price down to £24.29 GBP from £26.99.
As more VR supporting titles are released on Steam, VRFocus will bring you the latest releases.
