Steel Rats is a 2.5D action arcade game fusing destructive, octane-fuelled motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, set in a visually stylised retro future world. It’s the latest side scrolling motorbike game from Tate Multimedia and has us interested.

If you love your PS Vita as much as we do then you’ll remember Tate as they gave us Urban Trial Freestyle, the stunt racer where you played as a bare chested, monosyllabic, grunting, hairy hillbilly biker. We loved it and when Nintendo Switch fired out Urban Trial Playground earlier this year, we were even more pumped. Steel Rats looks set to continue in the same vain with more destruction and death-defying stunts. Don’t believe us? Then check out the story trailer and gameplay trailer below.

About the game

Join the Steel Rats, a larger-than-life punk biker gang who once ruled the streets of Coastal City and now find themselves as the last line of defense against an invading horde of destructive and constantly evolving army of junkbots. Choose your character, and unlock new special abilities and customizable bikes to fight with style through vast areas of the city in a deadly mix of speed, agility and firepower.

Steel Rats is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year and is already lighting up the 2018 awards scene with eight nominations and one win for ‘Best Gameplay’ at the Game Connection Awards and a nomination for ‘Best Indie Game’ at the Digital Dragons Indie Showcase.

Polish publisher and developer Tate Multimedia are strapping on their spiked shoulder pads and fire-spewing wheel saws getting ready for its release. We’ll bring you more news when we get it.
