E3 2001 Preshow Report: Kinetica
SCEA brings exoskeleton stunt racing to the PlayStation 2.
We'll begin emailing you updates about %gameName%.
SCEA Santa Monica is bringing this futuristic exoskeleton racing game to the PlayStation 2, and is emphasizing the stunt driving and high-speed elements combined with the Kinetic Skins concept when calling this title unique. In the game, your racer melds with a kinetic suit, which lets you essentially "cling" to the track, allowing for gravity and anti-gravity stunts, high-G vertical climbs, and the like.
One or two players can race against each other in one of 12 tracks within six different environments, with a variety of different objectives and obstacles such as multiple line corners and alternate pathways as an example. We'll have more on the various vehicles, tracks, and stunts in the near future. Kinetica will ship in November.
