Announcing ‘ONRUSH’ – the new, all-action racing game from Codemasters
SURPRISE! Today we had the absolute pleasure of announcing our new arcade racing game, ONRUSH, live on stage with PlayStation at Paris Games Week. ONRUSH will bring all-action, gravity defying racing back to the console gaming scene at breakneck speed when it launches on PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One in summer 2018.
Developed by the new Codemasters development team in Cheshire, UK (formerly Evolution Studios), ONRUSH is a celebration of sensational speed, outright fun and over-the-top spectacle. Want to see what we mean? Just take a look at the announcement trailer, which premiered today at Paris Games Week:
ONRUSH isn’t about racing to the finish line. Here, racing with style and flair is what counts as you perform incredible takedowns and put everything on the line in order to power up your all important RUSH bar. RUSH is the ultimate power up, producing an exhilarating and devastating force which, when used at the right time, can wreak havoc on your competition.
ONRUSH Game Director, Paul Rustchynsky commented: “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 the 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 tyre 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,” continued Paul.
ONRUSH will launch on PS4 and Xbox One in the summer 2018. For more information visit www.onrushgame.com. Fans can keep up to date with all the latest news from the studio by joining our communities on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Reddit.
