Upcoming Wii U title: Road Redemption!

Have a passion for bikes? Love racing? How about the feeling of going 100mph down the desert highway and bashing a competing racer’s head in with a metal bat? If you answered yes to any of these, seek help.

Only joking! Adrenalin junkies and racing fans rejoice, Road Redemption is here satisfy those urges you’ve been having. Road Redemption can be most compared the N64 title, Road Rash 64 (even sporting a similar moniker). You’ll play as biker speeding down the highway, weaving through traffic at high speeds, competing against rival bikers for control of territory and drug routes. Just like in Road Rash 64 (video link), you’ll be racing against other racers equipped with an arsenal of melee weapons (Chains, Lead pipes, Baseball bats, Tire Irons, Machetes, Samurai Swords, Sledge Hammers, Axes, Brass Knuckles) and firearms (Lever action sawed-off shotgun, Pump action sawed-off shotgun, 9mm handgun, Revolver, Desert Eagle, Uzi, Mac-10, M-16, AK-47). As stated in Road Redemption’s Kickstarter, DarkSeas Games hopes to bring “state-of-the-industry combat controls, insane crashes, destructible environments, AI, ragdoll physics, and online multiplayer to the classic formula.” Check out the video below to see (alpha) gameplay footage of Road Redemption.

What separates Road Redemption from Road Rash 64 is its refined graphics, gameplay mechanics, various mission modes, and online multiplayer! In multiplayer, you will be able to engage in free-for-all or team-based missions. While drawing inspiration from from Road Rash 64, we can see Road Redemption becoming a unique addition to the racing genre.

Hopefully, you’ll be crusin’ and brusin’ sometime this year, as DarkSeas Games is aiming to release Road Redemption on PC (Windows/OSX/Linux) this August and a Wii U port in months following the PC release. Stay tuned, as we’ll be watching for any developing stories. What are your thoughts on the game? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
