The trailer for Black Forest Games’ downloadable spinoff for Ride to Hell: Retribution is out with some fresh details on the game.
Tactics are essential when up against a colorful cast of enemies. Players will be able to bark orders at their fearless gang members to bring them into the right formation on-the-fly with easy, accessible controls. Clever tactics will be rewarded, opening up enemy defenses and allowing you to get in on the action: as the leader of this lawless bunch, you can support your warriors at the front line or issue instructions from the back. Pick up and play action controls allow the players to get involved in the fight at any time. You’ll also be recruiting new members to join your gang, with each one bringing their own special abilities to a fight, from big bad bruisers to sultry medics.
I have to give it to them, a strategy game with a motorcycle gang is pretty unique. Deep Silver is really pulling out all the stops for the introduction of the Ride to Hell universe. Counting the as yet (relatively) unrevealed Ride to Hell: Beatdown, the publisher has no fewer than three games coming this year under the IP.
As for Ride to Hell: Route 666, you can expect it to burn rubber on Xbox Live, the PSN and Steam this Summer.
