Iceberg Interactive has announced Antigraviator, a futuristic high-speed racing game in the style of F-Zero or WipeOut - two popular series that have not had a new release in over 5 years. This game will be Iceberg's first simultaneous multiplatform release, and they're promising that it'll be the "fastest anti-gravity racing game ever made".
Antigraviator is being developed by Belgian developer Cybernetic Walrus, and it'll be their first game. The futuristic racer will contain traps, power-ups, the ability to customize your racer, online and local split-screen multiplayer, three game modes and 12 tracks. If you watch the trailer (below) it's clearly in the style of classic futuristic racing games such as Nintendo's F-Zero and Sony's WipeOut, but as WipeOut's last new game was in 2012 and F-Zero's was in 2004 there's clearly room for a new team to have a go at this type of racer.
Here's the Key Features of Antigraviator, from the Press Release:
● No speed limit!
● Play the single player campaign to unlock new parts, ships and skins
● Race your friends with local split-screen multiplayer for up to 4 players
● Race anybody in online multiplayer mode with rankings and leaderboards
● Use environmental traps to overtake your opponents
● Power-ups and boosts allow you to become top of the track
● Ship customization gives you an edge over the opposition
● Four beautifully created sci-fi worlds with three dynamic courses each
● Stunning realistic 3D graphics powered by Unity
● Soundtrack featuring 12 intense tracks that will enhance your racing experience
Iceberg Interactive, publishers of Oriental Empires and Starpoint Gemini, are very excited about this game, which as mentioned is their first multiplatform release. Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive, says “We’re huge science-fiction fans, as you might have guessed from our portfolio. A futuristic racing game definitely fits the bill for us and we couldn’t be more excited to publish Antigraviator."
Antigraviator is due out Q2 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. No Switch version so far sadly, which will annoy the Nintendo fans still waiting on a new F-Zero.
