Ride to Hell: Retribution announced for current-gen consoles

Motorcycle gang-themed brawler coming this June to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

by

Deep Silver has unveiled Ride to Hell: Retribution for current-gen consoles.

The game is being developed by Ferrari Challenge creators Eutechnyx, and will be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on June 25 in North America and June 28 across the rest of the world.

Ride to Hell: Retribution revolves around protagonist Jake Conway, who intends to enact his revenge on a biker gang called The Devil's Hand. Combat in the game takes place both on foot and on motorcycle, with the former offering hand-to-hand duels and the latter revolving around vehicular shootouts.

Deep Silver will publish the game, alongside two digital spin-off titles for console and mobile. Ride to Hell: Route 666, which has the player recruit and lead a gang of bikers aiming to control America's famous Route 66, will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Steam.

Ride to Hell: Beatdown, which is described by Deep Silver as a brawler, will be released on mobile.

The game was first revealed by Deep Silver back in 2008, when the publisher said the game was in development at an internal studio with collaboration from Eutechnyx.

Alongside Ride to Hell: Retribution, Deep Silver is also overseeing Dead Island: Riptide, Metro: Last Light, and Saints Row IV for release in 2013.

The animation is kinda sloppy but it doesn't look that bad honestly.

I see so many who don't get what they're referencing in this trailer. Maybe you had to be there in the 70's or 80's to understand why this is great. It's nostalgia I guess. At the very least you need some empathy and a sense of humor and some understanding of the culture back then.

Before smartphones and hybrid cars. Before Internet and home computers. Before electric bikes and hybrid cars.

Looks like a ridiculous, over the top, mindless beat 'em up. I like it.

People complained so much about Hitman Absolution nuns-with-guns trailer, yet no one said a word about this one?

Meh, Sleeping Dogs has the best beat em up controls and feel right now, and thats an open world game. Better to just buy that game instead.

Loved the trailer. So grindhouse!

Well, I suppose development on those other 3 big titles will make this one suffer.  After acquiring Saints Row from the THQ auction, I bet they'll be doing their best to make it a huge profit for them.  If that means letting some minor title like this slip through the cracks, I'm sure they'll be fine with that.

Is it only me, but does it look so bad that it actually might be good?

I wonder if people who make good games look at this kind of stuff and just laugh.

I was looking forward to this game years ago, and I guess I'm glad it didn't get cancelled, but I'm wondering what happened? It seems like it took a turn in a different direction altogether.

This game looks like complete ass shit, I felt dumber just watching that.

May have promise.  Not going to get too hopeful though.  Been hoping for a road rash style affair ever since The Lost and The Damned.

I've been watching out for this awhile myself, and am glad to see it's finally going to surface. The old Grindhouse biker movies influence is a great way to present it as well.

Will keep an eye on this one.  I don't know any of Deep Silver's work.  This oughtta give a few clues as to how they will handle Saint's Row and whatnot.

Oh wow looks fun.  I've never played a biker themed game before, about time really.  I really wish people would stop using that lame font for all their marketing schemes.

I have had this game on my radar for some time, almost forgot about it.

Looks like it's trying to cash in on a Sons Of Anarchy vibe.

I didn't like that either, so I think I'll give this one a wide berth.

Kind of worrying when a publisher goes silent on a game for five years and then announces it is going to be released in two months. I guess better than Take Two announcing a game five years before it is released, but there should be a happy middle I think.

I'm shocked.

This actually looks good. Although, I have a feeling it will have abysmal graphics.

Keep up the good work, Deep Silver. Until then, I'm going to go play Dead Island

@Strider8009 A teaser trailer can tell you a lot about a game or a movie. First is the tone, then is the artistic design. That's how it's so easy to say that this one is going to be a bad game.

Funny,when I saw the picture and thought the Sons of Anarchy video game might have be reinvented into this.

@H0rizon did you not read the article? It says current gen mate

@PSBEATSALLDEAL I'm excited for Metro: Last Light because just like this game, Deep Silver isn't making it. I'm not excited for this game but Deep Silver is just publishing this so they shouldn't take the heat if it's bad.

@Setho10 At least they're not like Square and announce games 8 years before they are released.

@deathblow3 @kungfuj0 I know, but publsihers can still have certain influences over games even though they, themselves, are not making the games.  See EA and Bioware for proof.
