“After the animals of Torch City were defeated by the invading Robotic Legion in the War of Resistance six years ago, the Resistance fighter Rayton the Rabbit has stayed in the shadows, “we can read from the premise of the game.” The arrest of a friend meant that he had no choice but to put up his giant metal fist and fight those who oppress him. Little did he know that he would soon be caught in a maelstrom of conspiracies involving the Legion, the Resistance and the Gang of Rats. “
Announced in 2019 during the PlayStation China Hero Project, the game invites us to immerse ourselves with Rayton in a whole series of scenarios loaded with challenges: there are a whole dozen unique areas to explore in the style of action games and platforms. With a combat mechanics, puzzle solving and obstaclesTogether with Rayton, players discover a “vivid and detailed” city. In addition, exploration will lead us to discover secret passages, shortcuts and hidden rooms.
We are Rayton the rabbit, and our mission is to rescue our friend in Torch City
When it comes to fighting, we will have at our disposal three completely different weapons: the fist, the drill and the whip are three weapons. They allow us to adopt different styles of fighting, attacking our enemies in the way that we consider most suitable for each occasion. Throughout our adventure we will come across all kinds of enemies, as well as bosses who will display a unique fighting style.
The motor Unreal Engine 4 is in charge of providing the players with this proposal, seasoned with a dieselpunk style very striking. With realistic 3D images, we will discover a stark contrast between the main animals and the mechanical soldiers. We remind you that this adventure will debut next September 7 on both PS4 and PS5 (through PlayStation Store); It will also debut on PC (Steam) later.
