FuturLab has announced a PS Vita and PS4 sequel to their popular teleportation shoot ‘em-up, Velocity. Weaving together two classic game formats into one seamless experience, Velocity 2X features puzzle-platforming action alongside the award-winning top-down shoot ‘em-up gameplay.
Velocity 2X gives players an opportunity to experience two beloved genres combined into one adventure. Players will take control of the teleporting Quarp Jet to outsmart enemies in race-tuned space combat, and then dock their ship, jump out and run around on foot to infiltrate enemy space stations. Once they’re done with the action on-foot, they can jump back into the Quarp Jet and continue their mission in space!
“Velocity struck a chord with gamers for its innovative combination of gameplay mechanics, and our aim with Velocity 2X is to take players on a similar journey of discovery. We’re confident that the combination of features we’re creating across two classic gameplay formats will be thrilling for fans of Velocity, and should hopefully encourage newcomers to try our particular brand of twitchy fun.” – James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director
Here is an additional Story Teaser:
FuturLab are keeping gameplay specifics under wraps at the moment, but all will be revealed before the Eurogamer Expo in September, where Velocity 2X will be available to play on the show floor.
