Truant Pixel has been watching loads of AKIRA, it appears. The developer – maybe greatest identified for its suite of PlayStation 4 themes – has introduced next-gen PSVR sport RUNNER for PlayStation 5, an arcade-inspired throwback the place you’ll be embroiled in shootouts on the again of a bike. It seems each ounce as intense because it sounds.
“Players take on the role of Mina, a rogue mod-courier at the centre of a massive city-wide pursuit,” the blurb explains. “Beginning in the heart of Presidium, the neon-drenched capitol of the mining colony moon N-351, Mina’s only means of escape is the ‘Thoroughfare’, a massive high-speed expressway that snakes through the entirety sprawling colony complex.”
It’s a deep narrative setup for what quantities to shootouts on a speedway, however you’ll be able to inform there are a ton of 80s influences which have gone into this. You’ll be capable to customise your motorbike as you progress, whereas there’ll be a number of hogs to unlock. There’s no phrase on a date but, however presumably it’ll be focusing on subsequent 12 months, when Sony’s new PSVR headset is scheduled to launch.
The sport actually has baggage of favor, however the gameplay does look slightly on the simplistic facet on this clip. Nonetheless, there’s loads of time for the developer to flesh out the concept, so we’ve excessive hopes for this one. If nothing else, its overwhelming sense of favor ought to assist it to standout – we’ve all the time needed to experience our very personal lightcycle, in any case.
