Tate Multimedia’s ‘Steel Rats’ Coming Nov. 7
The Steel Rats are ready to ride! Tate Multimedia has announced the all-out, action-arcade-inspired motorbike combat racer is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC on Nov. 7, 2018.
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 a win for ‘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 nine-foot-tall robot demo station.
At launch, the standard edition of Steel Rats will be priced at $19.99. There will also be a Deluxe Edition priced at $22.99 which, in addition to the main game, includes a PlayStation theme, five avatars and the game’s soundtrack.
