MOTORBIKE MAYHEM BEGINS AS ‘STEEL RATS’ GEARS UP FOR A NOVEMBER 7th RELEASE DATE ON PLAYSTATION®4, XBOX ONE AND STEAM

GET READY TO WRECK AND RIDE WITH YOUR CREW AS PLAYSTATION PRE-ORDERS ARE NOW LIVE IN EUROPE

October 5th – London – The Steel Rats are ready to ride, as Tate Multimedia has announced the all-out action-arcade inspired motorbike combat racer is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC on November 7th. What’s more, you can start your initiation into the Steel Rats today by heading to the Playstation®Store, where pre-orders are now live ahead of the game’s release next month. Pre-ordering the game will get you the Steel Rats Deluxe Edition at a discounted price which, as well as the main game, includes a PlayStation theme, five avatars and the game’s soundtrack. Playstation Plus members also get a 15% discount when pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition of the game.

A visceral and groundbreaking evolution of the 2.5D action-arcade genre, Steel Rats fuses destructive, octane-fuelled, motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, all set in a visually stylised, retro-future world. Switch between four unique and upgradeable characters as you wreak havoc and defend your city from an invading armada of junk robots.

Steel Rats is already lighting up the 2018 awards scene with eight nominations and one win for ‘Best Gameplay’ at the Game Connection Awards, a nomination for ‘Best Indie Game’ at the Digital Dragons Indie Showcase and winner of ‘Best Gameplay’ at Pixel Heaven in Poland earlier this month. The game has been touring the convention circuit over the past year, having been at EGX Rezzed, PAX East, Pixel Heaven, Gamescom, PAX West and most recently Tokyo Game Show, sometimes even playable on a giant 9-foot-tall robot demo station.

Pre-orders for the Steel Rats Deluxe Edition are now live in Europe at the discounted price of €19.99/£15.99 and 16.99€/£13.59 for Playstation Plus members.
