During Sony’s Paris Games Week showcase today we got a brief glimpse of Onrush, a brand new game from Codemasters.
As you can see from the short 75 second video, the game pretty much has everything you’d expect from a Motorstorm game: ATVs, MotoX, and lots and lots of destruction, among other things. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Summer 2018.
Onrush comes from the new Codemasters studio team in Cheshire, UK formerly known as Evolution Studios who most recently worked on Sony’s DriveClub title as well as the 2006 release, Motorstorm.
The aim of the game is speed and style but not necessarily crossing the finish line. Players will be required to dart and dip around as they avoid being smashed to smithereens or being shunted off the track into a bit of death.
On Game Director, Paul Rustchynsky said, “We are extremely excited to finally be able to talk about ONRUSH. The team grew up playing iconic, arcade racing games so it is great to have the opportunity to re-imagine those experiences on today’s consoles and bring something fresh to the market. We believe that it is something that gamers are crying out for.”
“The most important factor in the game is that it has to be fun. It is not about tire choices, car setups or even racing lines; it’s about edge of your seat action and taking death defying risks in order to reap the biggest rewards,” continued Paul.
