Redout 2 trailer shows off glorious high-speed racing – Eurogamer.net

A new trailer for the futuristic racing sequel Redout 2 has detailed its gameplay.

The sequel to the 2016 original, Redout 2 offers high-speed thrills similar to F-Zero and WipEout with anti-gravity ships and looping courses.

This suite offers double the pitches (now 10) and reverse courses, for a total of 72 unique tracks.

The game will have the option of AI-assisted controls, which means players can adjust the sensitivity of acceleration, braking, steering, strafing, and pitching. This will make it easier to learn its unique strafing system that allows precise control at high speeds.

Six game modes are featured in his career progression, including Races, Time Attack, Last Man Standing, and Bosses.

There will also be online multiplayer racing with up to 12 players on “most platforms”. The game is expected to release on Xbox and PlayStation, PC, and Switch consoles.

Developer 34BigThings is also doubling down on vehicle customization, further setting the game apart from the competition. Players can choose from 12 chassis and then customize multiple ship elements to create their own unique racing ship.

Not only does the electronic soundtrack feature artists like Giorgio Moroder, Zardonic, and Dance with the Dead, but a musical master algorithm dynamically shuffles the tracks based on your performance.

There’s no specific release date, but Redout 2 is slated for release in 2022. This should definitely scratch the itch for anyone waiting for a new version of F-Zero or WipEout.

Martin wrote of Redout in 2016, noting that “34BigThings thought long and hard about what makes the genre tick, and doubled the speed and style of the greats”.
