PS4 Game Playable For Free This Weekend In Europe

Pedal to the metal.

2 Comments

Burnout fans will want to check this one out: Sony and Codemasters are letting PlayStation 4 owners in Europe play Onrush for free this weekend. The flashy racing game will be playable for free July 6-9.

Onrush isn't your typical racing game. It's an arcade racer with an emphasis on bashing your opponents off the road, like in Burnout. But if you fall too far behind, you'll get teleported straight back into the action, keeping things frantic. There's also a class-based element to the races, kind of like in Overwatch, with each class having unique abilities.

The result is a game quite unlike anything you've played before. It has a sizable campaign to get players up to speed on the gameplay basics, plus a number of online multiplayer modes where you can duke it out to see which team reigns supreme. The online modes are randomized, so you never know what you're going to play next. In Overdrive, for instance, two teams of six try to be the first to fill up a meter using boost. In Countdown, each team tries to drive through as many checkpoints as possible.

From GameSpot's 9/10 Onrush review: "When it comes to crumpling metal and high speed thrills, not all of Onrush's game modes are on equal footing in terms of consistent excitement. Yet its foundations are so strong, and so unique, that it's easy to lose hours upon hours barreling around these disparate tracks."

If you're not a European PS4 owner, don't despair. According to a tweet from the official Onrush account, Codemasters will have some "juicy stuff" coming soon.
