REDOUT GOES LIGHTSPEED!

The acclaimed anti-gravity racing will hit retail with an exclusive complete edition

CALABASAS, CA – May, the 15 th, 2017 -  505 Games is proud to announce that  Redout, the anti-gravity racing simulation, will hit retail stores with an exclusive and enriched version, available for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.  Redout: Lightspeed Edition will include the brand new “split screen” mode – which will push you and your friends into fierce head-to-head, elbow-to-elbow challenges – plus the " Europa" DLC and the newly added " Neptune" DLC.  The game will offer a total set of 30 unique tracks, along with 6 different environments, staged on a dystopian Earth.

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.

UPDATED REDOUT FEATURES FOR PLAYSTATION 4 AND XBOX ONE CONSOLES:

  • Multiplayer: Challenge up to 6 players from around the globe, or a friend – head-to-head – in the brand new split screen mode, to find out who the best  Redout pilot is.
  • Career mode: Carve out your path to glory with more than 100 different racing events, varying experience, and an array of challenging levels.
  • Upgradable Ships: Invest in improving your  EngineMagnetsStructure and  Energy to get your ship track-ready.
