RIVE arrived to PS4 and Steam a few days ago, and I thought I’d take a moment to remind you all about it.
If you weren’t pumped up after watching that trailer, well then I think you should check your pulse. The game is out on PS4 and Steam and it’s really cool. It’s got speed run modes, leaderboards, and is just a fast paced game if that’s the type of thing you’re into. And shooting things. A lot. And explosions.
Here are some highlights straight from the developers at Two Tribes:
Dance of destruction
RIVE’s unique 360-degree shooter/platformer hybrid lets you choreograph a ‘dance of destruction’. It feels like the explosive games of yore, pumping megapixels like it’s 2016.
When space scavenger Roughshot gets trapped on a mysterious starship, he has to form a surprising alliance. Don’t care about the story? Just shoot the messenger. Literally.
Hack those robots
Ever dreamed of controlling your enemies? In RIVE you can. Find the hacks and get those gun turrets, nurse drones and irritable smashbots on your side. Or hitch a ride on top of a bullet train!
Grab an ammo crate and attack with a burst of Falcons, Teslas, Kesslers or Blunders. Is the battle wearing you down? These special attacks will save your behind every single time.
Multiple game modes
RIVE offers an insane sequence of spectacular battles and setpieces. You won’t believe what’s happening to you… and that’s before you even tried the Single-Credit and Speedrun modes.
Again, the game has a lot to offer and for a bullet-hell meets hyper action + hack mash-up theres definite fun to be had.
