'LocoCycle' (ALL) Shown Off At PAX Prime - New Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 31, 2013 @ 2:31 a.m. PDT

LocoCycle tells the story of a martial arts-wielding assassin motorcycle who becomes self-aware and accidentally drags her South American engineer on a cross-country search for freedom.

Initially, we had some concerns about exposing I.R.I.S., the 850lb sentient assassin motorcycle, to the crowds at PAX Prime, the mecca of video game conventions. Would someone make an errant comment about restricting her freedoms and end up judo-kicked halfway across the convention center? Would Big Arms, the international weapons cartel, invade such a sacred gathering just to reclaim their lost property? In the end, though, we decided we’ve got a lot of really cool stuff at our booth (#814) and a little extra muscle never hurts.

Central to our booth is LocoCycle, one of the handful of playable Xbox One titles on the show floor. LocoCycle details the story of I.R.I.S.’s escape and search for freedom, and that of Pablo, the engineer unwittingly dragged into the adventure. We are sporting an all-new demo of the game, showcasing a new location and more information on the game, which will be available at console launch through the online marketplace for the price of $19.99.

Besides her digital form, the actual I.R.I.S will be on display, gracing our stage in all her mechanical glory in a booth constructed in her honor. The rest of the Twisted Pixel collection will also be available to check out, along with enough Twisted Pixel-themed merch to satisfy the most ardent of fans. Plus, all show long we will be running contests with prizes such as an Xbox One Day One Edition.
