Skateboarding is cool and all, but it surely’s been round for a very long time. I’ve performed loads of skating video games. I would like one thing new. Something like Wave Break, a skateBOATing sport that mixes ‘80s period visuals, boat grinding, and animals into one rad-looking bundle.
Wave Break is at present being developed by Funktroniclabs. Based on a trailer launched final week, it’s trying superb.
The devs describe Wave Break because the world’s first skateboating sport and, after doing hours of analysis (I regarded on Google and YouTube for a couple of minutes), I imagine them. Set in a “Miami Vice impressed world” that features icy tundras, beautiful coastlines, and techno-future cities, Wave Break stars varied animals treating boats like skateboards to do tips and grind rails, all whereas utilizing weapons to battle baddies and rival animals. The sport appears to be like to have a ton of customization too, permitting gamers to construct and play customized skateboarding parks. Players may even be capable to totally trick out their boats and animals in era-appropriate trend and cosmetics.
Wave Break will assist solo play, in addition to on-line co-op and split-screen play with completely different modes, together with a trick assault mode that sounds just like one thing you would possibly discover in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. There’s additionally an episodic storyline specializing in the rivalry between the mafia’s Big Pin and police detective McHutchenson. Expect explosions, twists, and naturally, a lot of skateboarding motion.
Wave Break involves Steam and Switch on June 11. You can learn extra concerning the sport, its ‘80s-tastic soundtrack, the varied modes, and take a look at extra screenshots of it in motion over on its official website.
Now, excuse me whereas I purchase a white swimsuit, some sun shades and slick again my hair in preparation to get wild and moist within the ‘80s.
