Steel Rats | Perfect for Motorbike Lovers.

Tuesday, 3 April 2018

A very exciting looking game is coming out this year, the name doesn't give too much away but just by looking at the trailer it's clear it looks to be promising, Steel Rats is a visceral and groundbreaking evolution 2.5D arcade game which has a mixture of punk and motorbikes mixed together. On March 29th Tate Multimedia hit the global events scene to showcase Steel Rats to the public ahead of its launch this year on PS4, Xbox One and PC. it recently won Best Gameplay at game connection awards which already shows are promising this game is.

The characters look very steampunk which is very appealing to me, I love that kind of genre especially since playing Bioshock, Steel Rats is set in a retro-like future but in the 40's/50's which gives it an edge. you are able to ride through different environments whilst speeding along killing enemies. The Steel Rats are a punk gang who used to rule the streets of the coastal city but are now under attack by an army of junkbots. whilst playing you are able to choose from a number of characters who each have their own perks you are able to unlock special abilities and customisable bikes which will be cool.



I like the idea of riding along on a motorbike and fighting enemies, I may not be the best at controlling a car or bike in games but this sounds fun and from the screenshots, I have included the environment looks like it has a lot to offer, the dark atmosphere gives an eery feel. Jacek Gburczyk, Tate Multimedia art director said back in 2017 “Steel Rats is set in an atmospheric, stylized, retro-future version of the 40s and 50s Americana, We’ve taken everything we love from America in that time period and mixed it up with our favorite parts of dieselpunk and steampunk influences to create something that has a wholly original feel and character.”

Wojtek Biliński, head of the studio at Tate Multimedia, added, “In terms of gameplay, we want to have something for speed runners, racers, brawlers, stunt drivers and all those who want to pull off insane and stylish fight moves from the back of a turbo-powered motorbike. We hope that everyone will enjoy playing Steel Rats in one of these ways and discover the many styles of gameplay we aim to deliver.” 

I'm looking forward to seeing what this game has in store for us all, check out the trailer below:
