PQube and developer Long Way Home are thrilled to reveal a first look gameplay trailer, demonstrating how ‘RESISTOR’ blends cinematic, character-driven storytelling with high-speed, stunt-infused racing as rising star Aster comes face to face with a dangerous pair of adversaries…
This new trailer also introduces character and vehicle customisation, with an alternative look Aster, voiced by Thomas G Burt, jumping behind the wheel of several heavily modified refits of the R180 ‘STAGNUM’ as it blazes across busy desert highways, threads the needle through a sprawling industrial complex, and navigates twisting subterranean tunnels.
A vividly imagined open world – Hit the road and traverse sun-scorched desert wastes in your vehicle or disembark to explore dusty outposts and urban sprawls.
Race in high-octane tournaments – Compete with your teammates in high-stakes contests featuring explosive vehicular combat and gravity-defying stunts.
Experience an expansive story – Accept missions from a huge cast of characters to boost your reputation, unlock additional story arcs, and multiple endings.
Take down challenging bosses – Go head-to-head with your biggest rivals in winner-takes-all showdowns to unlock new car abilities.
Expand your territory – Capitalise on your growing reputation to improve your base and develop areas of the map under your influence to reach new locations.
Lead the ultimate racing team – Recruit teammates and manage relationships within your fledgling crew. Develop affinity and unlock bonuses to aid you in your races.
Extensive customisation – Collect outfits, vehicle parts, music themes, and more! Visit your garage to customise almost every aspect of your driver and ride.
Utilise the character creator to design your own racing prodigy, Aster. In true RPG fashion choose from a wide selection of body shapes, facial features, hairstyles, skin tones, and accessories, with MILLIONS of different combinations possible! Once you’ve settled on your look, pick out an appropriate voice type, with feminine and masculine vocal talents courtesy of Rhiannon Moushall (Warframe, CrisTales, Cloudpunk) and Thomas G Burt (SMITE, The Prince of Tennis, Phoenix Point).
Retrofitted with a finely tuned, high-performance (and slightly unstable), Star Point Motors GT1200 plasma engine, Aster’s iconic red and white first-generation R180 was inherited from their father, the legendary racer Eugene Aster. While this powerful machine provides the perfect entry point for fledgling racers participating in the early stages of Dekker’s tournament, later challenges may require more ‘specialised’ hardware. Collect new body kits and engine parts to modify the appearance and handling of your ride before hitting the track to dominate your rivals.
Aster’s road to victory begins in The Northern Wastes, a sparsely populated desert expanse littered with remnants of the old world and characterised by dusty highways, monolithic mesas, and treacherous gulleys. At the centre of these badlands stands ‘The Rig’, a decommissioned oil platform home to a small community of outcasts and traders. Here you will accept your first missions allowing you to get to grips with the basics of stunt-racing and open-world exploration, while simultaneously making a name for yourself and building up your rep. As Aster progresses through Dekker’s tournament new areas of the world will become available to explore, with increasingly more technical environments and tracks to tame!
