Steel Rats debuts its PS4 trailer at PAX East
Choose a biker and kick some robot ass.
Coming off an impressive showing at the Games Developers Conference this year, where Polish developer Tate Multimedia won an award for the ‘Best Gameplay’ at the Game Connection Development Awards, the team has now released a trailer showing more details of the game. Steel Rats will also be playable on the show floor.
Tate Multimedia is made up of almost 40 creative professionals around the globe, with past titles including the Urban Trial series. The entire team believes the studio is a “house of ideas,” basically meaning that any idea presented will be looked at and not thrown off the table for just being different or unique. This can obviously lead to some pretty niche concepts, but can also bring about creative, new game ideas.
Steel Rats is a visceral and ground breaking evolution of the 2.5D action arcade genre, fusing destructive, octane-fuelled motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, set in a visually stylised retro future world.
A 2.5D game, Steel Rats has you playing as members of a motorcycle game in a grim future world where robots are constantly trying to harsh your mellow as a post-apocalyptic biker. Atmospheres are rich and the gameplay looks solid, but admittedly, I’ve yet to get any hands-on time with the game. As you level up and proceed through the game you will continue to unlock new abilities for your bikers that help make fighting your opposition easier. You can check out the new trailer above!
