SCEA brings exoskeleton stunt racing to the PlayStation 2.
SCEA Santa Monica is bringing this futuristic exoskeleton racing game to the PlayStation 2. This unique title emphasizes stunt-driving and high-speed elements combined with the Kinetic Skins concept. In the game, your racer melds with a kinetic suit, which lets you essentially "cling" to the track, allowing for gravity and antigravity 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, for example. We'll have more on the various vehicles, tracks, and stunts in the near future. Kinetica will ship in November.
