WATCH: Team racer ‘OnRush’ releases vehicle trailer
Upcoming racing game “OnRush” splits its vehicles into different classes, encouraging players to pull stunts, drive dangerously or stick with teammates in order to build up a lead.
The cars, bikes and trucks of “OnRush” come with distinct capabilities, pushing players to chase different styles in pursuit of opponent-wrecking abilities and boosts.
Developed by staff from shuttered United Kingdom studio Evolution, which worked on the “Motorstorm” franchise as well as PlayStation exclusive “Driveclub”, “OnRush” appears to have retained its predecessors’ love of speed and heft.
But where fellow British breakout “Rocket League” made a successful splice of soccer and radio controlled car trickery, “OnRush” looks to be referencing hero shooters like “Overwatch” or character-oriented multiplayer battlers like “League of Legends” and “Dota 2”.
That’s because each of the eight profiled vehicles profiled in the “OnRush” trailer Choose Your Weapon work for the benefit of their team in different ways, being imbued with different traits, abilities, and turbo boost effects.
Where one might charge up special abilities by sticking close to allies, another will need to rocket past run-wrecking obstacles at a hairs’ breadth distance.
And while a good proportion are focused on leaving havoc in their wake, others shield teammates or drain energy from opponents.
“OnRush” releases June 5 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. JB
