While it’s been confirmed that Nicalis will handle publishing Redout digitally on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch (it will also handle the retail release of the game on Switch), today, publisher 505 Games announced it will be bringing the game to retail on the PS4 and Xbox One.
Never heard of Redout? No problem — here’s an overview from developer 34BigThings itself:
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 recognisable 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, for these platforms, currently has no release date beyond “2017.” However, if you can’t wait and have a PC — where the game has been available since September of last year — you can pick it up right now for $34.99 USD.
