Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition Arrives on PlayStation 4 & PS Vita on June 30th

Pre-order now and receive an exclusive Velocity 2X artbook

MADRID – June 6, 2017 – Publisher BadLand Games and developer FuturLab have now confirmed that the award-winning sci-fi platformer Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as a boxed release on June 30, 2017. On top of that, if you pre-order the game, you’ll receive an exclusive artbook courtesy of FuturLab (retailer-dependent).

Fans and newcomers to the franchise will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the development of Velocity 2X with war stories about the game’s creation, bass thumping tunes from the soundtrack, and the buttery-smooth 60 fps puzzle-platforming action Velocity 2X is known for.

“Aside from receiving the lovely art book, soundtrack and all the expansions, the behind the scenes special feature content is really excellent,” says James Marsden, director at FuturLab. “Fans will learn a great deal about how the game came about, how it developed, and the important roles that Shahid Ahmad and Joris de Man played in its production.”

Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition casts players as Lt. Kai Tana, the pilot of the prototype Quarp Jet.

They've created an armada by enslaving other races and seek to make humanity their next conquest. Kai Tana must free the enslaved races and use her Quarp Jet to stop the Vokh before they can discover its secrets and invade Earth.
