Onrush will bring all-action, gravity-defying racing back to consoles when it launches on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in Summer 2018. The game is developed by the team formerly known as Evolution Studios, the game makers behind Sony's Driveclub, After their closure, Evolution Studios was acquired by Codemasters and that team is making Onrush.
According to Codemasters, the game isn't about just racing to the finish line. Racing with style and flair is what counts as you perform incredible takedowns and risk it all to power up your all-important Rush meter. Without giving too many details away, the developers said that Rush is the ultimate power which produces a devastating force which, when used at the right time, can obliterate the competition.
In a statemnet issued to the press, Onrush Game Director Paul Rustchynsky said the following.
We are extremely excited to finally be able to talk about Onrush. The team grew up playing iconic, arcade racing games so it is great to have the opportunity to re-imagine those experiences on today's consoles and bring something fresh to the market. We believe that it is something that gamers are crying out for. The most important factor in the game is that it has to be fun. It is not about tire choices, car setups or even racing lines; it's about edge-of-your-seat action and taking death defying risks in order to reap the biggest rewards.
It's great to see the Evolution Studios team finding a new home at Codemasters. Hopefully Onrush will be a great experience and a boost for the developers. However, only time will tell. We'll be sure to review it next year and tell you how it stacks up with other fast-paced arcade titles out there.
