Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Aug 29, 2017
Xbox OneAug 29, 2017
PCSep 26, 2016

Developer: 34BigThings

Genre: Racing

2560 AD: Humanity moved to Mars and some of Titan’s moons. The most followed and expensive sport is a high-speed racing class employing magnetic hoverships, the fastest humanity has ever engineered: a sport named RED:OUT.

The art style goes for something we called futuretro. Low-poly meshed and landscapes blend in with the latest state-of-the-art shading and lighting effects, creating a beautiful mixture. From dirty suburban environments to eerie frozen landscapes, to vast desert plains, this style applies equally well. Red:Out is developed in Unreal 4.

Controlling a nuclear-powered ship hovering about two meters from the ground going over 400 km/h is no piece of cake Now, imagine doing the same in a vicious curve upside down, or in a double loop-the-loop. Your ship will never race on rails. Each input will apply a physical force!

Nails the look, the sound, and the speed, but Redout stalls on the sensation.

Redout is an ambitious attempt to recapture the glory of futuristic racing games, while paying homage to WipEout. The game's controls and responsiveness have been fine-tuned to make the hardest of tracks very interesting and engaging to race across at supersonic speeds. Redout is an example of a game that's given and old formula another coat of paint, but it could also mean the beginning of another futuristic racer franchise, in the absence of a true contemporary from Sony.

RedOut is fast and is furious. Its tight controls and spectacular tracks make it one of the best futuristic racing game out there.

At this point, Call of Duty leaks right before their reveals are a time-honored tradition.
