Remember Road Rash? The legendary game is officially back and is bigger and better!
90s kids who mourned the end of Road Rash in 2000 have a big reason to celebrate today as the popular video game is all set to make a comeback in a new avatar. The first looks of Road Rash 4 have now been released and they look pretty sick and insane.
The return of Road Rash was first reported by Sportskeeda back in the day when the game's creator Dan Gielser told us about some complications with owners EA Sports over the label's rights. However, everything is now in the past and Road Rash is all set to go live as Road Redemption.
Have a look at the trailer yourself.
While the new version looks the part, keeping with the advancing graphics, the essence of the game remains similar. The player encounters various obstacles on his way to victory, even police, and the controls at first glance look pretty basic and in line with the old game.
Road Redemption's release will mark a trip down memory lane for most players of the game who had to abruptly see an end to the game in 2000 owing to Giesler's burnout. He told in March this year: "The primary reason why I didn’t focus on making the fourth edition was because I was burned out at that time. I was focusing on so much about the game’s details, that I would just work 20-21 hours a day. Hence, I decided to take a long break from the game. Then I just moved onto other bigger projects, but now I miss playing it as well and I’m sure there are other there. Unfortunately, EA Sports own the rights of the game, so we will have to work something out there. But, if there are enough people interested we are doing it. I have a sketchy blueprint about the game’s dynamics, keeping in mind current day scenario as well."
If all things go as planned, Road Rash could be on your computer by mid-2018.
The biggest news is that we'll all be living in nostalgia as we get our first hands, eyes and fingers on Road Redemption.
