Lucid Games has announced the official Closed Beta for Switchblade, a dynamic new vehicle action game for PC and PlayStation 4, developed using the power of Unreal Engine 4.
From a team that has worked on titles such as Project Gotham Racing, Blur and Geometry wars, Switchblade is an arena-based 5v5 vehicular shooter that combines high-octane combat with an ever-shifting array of strategic choices. Seamlessly switch between heavily armed vehicles at any time to create endless tactical choices. Chase down a rival in a speedy fighter, then swap to a heavy-duty battlewagon to attack your competitor’s tower as your teammates switch between healers & artillery to back you up.
Win battles, grab loot and create your own unique online superstar as you rise through the ranks of a spectacular e-sport championship.
“We’ve got so much experience with driving games at our studio, but in a race there’s only ever one winner.” said Craig Howard, Creative Director at Lucid Games. “We wanted to make a game that more than one person can win, a true team game and one that rewards tactics as much as reactions.”
Switchblade will be released as a Free-to-Play title on PC and PS4 in early 2018.
