'Gearshifters' (ALL) Announced - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on April 28, 2021 @ 2:18 p.m. PDT

Gearshifters is a high-intensity top-down vehicle combat game, combining classic shoot-em-up retro arcade gameplay with rogue-like elements

Developed by Richard Ogden, of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 and TOCA Championship Racing fame, Petrolhead shooter Gearshifters is a dream combination for shoot-em-up and driving fans, a narrative and action-driven shmup, based on a dystopian future reality.

Steer, drift, spin, smash and gun through waves of enemy vehicles. Go to war against extreme-machine bosses. Build up and tune your tactical loadout of car mods, defenses and weaponry for each treacherous transport mission.

The experience is both narrative and action-driven, based on a dystopian future reality, where you dodge bullets, perform handbrake turns, and shoot your way to victory across nine fully developed zones and plenty of boss battles.

Employ precision control and expert driving skills to race rings around foes, dodge incoming projectiles, and unleash intense attacks. High-octane action at every turn, slide and spin.

Defeat the lawless factions that dominate dystopian future Europe, and take down their insane, heavily-armed boss machines.

Tackle dangerous delivery missions to ensure the safe arrival of precious cargo. Get paid, and modify your car with offensive, defensive, cosmetic and performance-based customisations.

Expand your territory across the post-apocalyptic continent. Only the most skilled Gearshifter can take on the most perilous routes and reach the mysterious Citadel.

Drive. Destroy. Get paid. Upgrade!
