Nicalis announced today that Redout, a high-velocity futuristic racing game, will be coming to Switch on May 14 via the Nintendo eShop.
When the game launches on May 14, players will get the ‘Lightspeed Edition’ which it will include all extra gameplay-related downloadable content as a free bonus that has a value of $40.
Here’s an overview of the game, via Nicalis:
Redout is a freakishly fast and uncompromising anti-gravity racing game, designed to be as challenging and satisfying as the top games in the vertigo-soaked futuristic arcade racing genre. Each turn, slope and twist applies a unique force to your vehicle, and players can drift and pitch the ship to minimize friction, channeling those forces into even greater forward velocity. The courses combine the efficiency of low-polygon structures with the eye candy of state-of-the-art shading, lighting and special-effects animation. The result? Breezy coastlines, eerie frozen landscapes and vast desert plains, all peppered with the flying sparks, electrical arcs and blazing exhaust of Redout racing intensity.
