Publisher PQube has shared a new trailer for their racing RPG RESISTOR. The video shows us a first look at the gameplay of the upcoming title developed by Long Way Home for the PlayStation 5.
RESISTOR combines open-world exploration, racing with elaborate stunts, and combat. As you try to build a team, you find out more details about an oppressive mega-corporation called Dekker Industries. The game’s story is further described on its PlayStation Store listing as follows:
In the year 2060 the world’s governments have long since destroyed one another and in their place stand self-contained city states presided over by a league of powerful corporations. Within the walls of these dense urban metropolises, citizens enjoy a life of comfort and excess, far removed from the harsh realities of the scattered communities that scrape a living in the endless desert wastes of the outside world.
To remain “competitive but friendly”, the corporations take turns hosting an annual racing tournament for the masses setting the finest teams, and bravest challengers, against one another in a series of exhilarating, high-speed death races. The ultimate prize? A one-way ticket to permanent citizenship, and a better life, inside the cities.
For Aster, this year’s event, sponsored by Dekker Industries, represents an opportunity to secure the vital healthcare needed to save their ailing mother. But is life beneath the glossy veneer of Ethan Dekker’s corporate utopia truly as idyllic as it seems?
A battle for the podium soon becomes a war to smash the system! Gather your teammates, fire up your plasma-engines, and above all, RESIST.
