Rush Rally 2
Rush Rally 2 is an upcoming racing game for not only Android, but iOS and Apple TV too – and it boasts some impressive features. First of all, the developers claim that the game will run at 60 frames per second and will feature over 72 tracks across a number of game modes including Rallycross and Rally Championship. There are eight cars available at launch with a plan to add more over time, all featuring realistic physics gathered from “real car telemetry data”. The iOS/Apple TV variants even feature MFi controller support, allowing you to use a gaming controller to play.
The good news is that the developers claim the game is completed, and it’s just a matter of deciding on a launch date. The developers hope that’ll be sometime in May, but nothing is conﬁrmed just yet. Check out the launch trailer, complete with gameplay below:
Hackers, as you’ve probably guessed already, is a game about hacking – don’t worry, you won’t get into trouble with the NSA for this kind of hacking, though. The idea is that you build up your hacking network and then hack your friends and other online players. Though details about gameplay are scarce, the idea is that you have a network, and you have to build up your defenses and resources in such a way that you make the core of your network impenetrable to hackers.
The game is currently in beta testing, which you can sign up for with a plan to release for Android in the coming months.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends
The Elder Scrolls: Legends was ﬁrst announced at E3 2015, and while there still isn’t a solid release date in sight, it looks promising. It’s a collect-able card game, with gamers collecting cards with stats including agility and strength to be used in battles, although there isn’t much else to go on as Bethesda is being tight‑lipped about the whole situation. Here is an overview of the gameplay element:
Bethesda has recently announced a beta test which should be starting soon, and those interested can sign up here. The game is set to be available for both PC and Mobile and while we assume this means both iOS and Android, there is no platform conﬁrmation so far. The release date is still unknown, but with E3 2016 fast approaching, we imagine it’ll get some kind of mention then.
Leap of Fate
Leap of Fate is an interesting game already available for PC, but is due to be released on mobile ‘soon’. The game is best known for being hardcore. It may have something to do with the fact that you have one life to survive a journey across a futuristic, slightly cyberpunk looking New York. There’s no health regeneration either, so you’ll probably die quickly and have to start all over again. You can play as one of four characters, all technomages (using science to create the illusion of magic), and there are over one hundred upgrades available over four categories: Mobility, Passive, Attack Skills and Equippable Glyphs.
You can ﬁnd out more about Leap of Fate on its oﬃcial website here. There’s no word on the release date for the mobile companion just yet, but we’ll update this when we know more.
Square Enix recently posted a teaser for something called Project: Rising with promises that we’d hear more soon. Well, it turns out that the “more” it was referring to was yet another trailer, although this one included a few more details – the only issue is that it’s in Japanese. A Japanese‑speaking writer over at Touch Arcade translated the trailer, and gave us the following insight: “…it’s another free to play social action RPG from the same artist responsible for Bravely Default. The game centralizes around four player co‑op, with players taking the role of various Final Fantasy‑ish classes.”
The video speciﬁcally mentions the Dragoon, White Mage and Black Mage classes, so it’s safe to assume that other Final Fantasy‑esque jobs will make an appearance in the full game. Samurai Rising looks to be a Japan‑exclusive game at launch, but we’re holding our breath that it’ll come to UK shores sooner rather than later.
