Today, publisher 505 Games and developer 34BigThings announced that Redout — in the form of Redout: Lightspeed Edition — will be making its way to PS4 and Xbox One on August 29th in North America and on August 31st in Europe.
The game will be available both physically and digitally (with the later not being published by 505 Games, but Nicalis) for $39.99 USD. Additionally, the console version — as it has been available on PC since last year — will include the brand new “split screen” mode plus the “Europa” DLC and the newly added “Neptune” DLC. According to 505 Games, the game will offer a total set of 30 unique tracks, along with 6 different environments, staged on a dystopian Earth.
Here’s an overview via 505 Games:
Redout is a tribute to classic anti-gravity racing games. It is designed to be an uncompromising, fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, soaked in the sensory overload that stands at the core of the arcade racing genre. The floating system and driving models are based on an advanced physics model: 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 high-speed, tense and beautiful futuristic racing clashes.
