The Steel Rats are ready to ride, as Tate Multimedia has announced the all-out action-arcade inspired motorbike combat racer is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 7th.
A visceral and groundbreaking evolution of the 2.5D action-arcade genre, Steel Rats fuses destructive, octane-fueled, motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, all set in a visually stylized, retro-future world. Switch between four unique and upgradeable characters as you wreak havoc and defend your city from an invading armada of junk robots.
Steel Rats is already lighting up the 2018 awards scene with eight nominations and one win for ‘Best Gameplay’ at the Game Connection Awards, a nomination for ‘Best Indie Game’ at the Digital Dragons Indie Showcase and winner of ‘Best Gameplay’ at Pixel Heaven in Poland earlier this month. The game has been touring the convention circuit over the past year, having been at EGX Rezzed, PAX East, Pixel Heaven, Gamescom, PAX West and most recently Tokyo Game Show, sometimes even playable on a giant 9-foot-tall robot demo station. Not too shabby!
