Publisher Nicalis and developer 34BigThings have announced plans to bring futuristic racer Redout to the Nintendo Switch this Spring. A very shiny debut trailer for the game has been embedded above.
Redout is set in the year 2560, after the construction of elaborate magnetic race tracks has transformed the barren wasteland of Earth into the epicenter of the galaxy’s most popular sport. Redout’s next-gen visual effects and highly optimized environments give players a mainline dose of sensory overload without sacrificing ultra-high-speed rendering and long draw distances.
Fans of futuristic racing games from the late ’90s will love the dynamic vehicle designs and evocative course environments. The architecture and terrain are based on fantastic visions—imagined 500+ years hence—of real-world locations like Cairo, Alaska and the gorgeous Italian region of Abruzzo.
Redout was built using Unreal Engine 4, and Lead Game Designer Giuseppe Franchi is very proud of how fast 34BigThings has been able to make Redout: “You’re gonna leave this game with your eyes dry, because you can’t blink.”
