In partnership with Saber Interactive, 34BigThings today unveiled a sequel to its racer Redout, aptly named Redout 2. The game will arrive on Switch sometime in 2022.
Redout 2 is another arcade-esque experience “where racing through the dystopian wastelands of a semi-abandoned Earth is one of the galaxy’s most popular sports.” It’ll feature both a single-player campaign as well as competitive multiplayer. That’s on top of “deep control systems, robust hovership customization, and a killer soundtrack”.
Redout 2 will contain 36 unique racetracks, and each one is reversible. Digging deeper into included content, the title also sports Arena Races, Time Attacks, Last Man Standing, and Boss Races.
If you’re interested in putting your skills to the test online, that’s possible with 12-player races. The game is also planned to have fresh challenges with regularly-added custom content plus seasons with unique aesthetic rewards.
In terms of customization, players can choose from twelve distinct chassis. The hovership is fully customizable with a selection of propulsors, stabilizers, rudders, intercoolers, flaps, magnets, wings, spoilers, rocket engines, paints, and more. Photo Mode is also supported for creating and sharing highlights.
According to 34BigThings, “Our music-master algorithms seamlessly and dynamically mix tracks based on real-time race data.” The soundtrack itself has contributions from electronic artists, including Giorgio Moroder, Zardonic, and Dance with the Dead.
Here’s the first trailer for Redout 2:
