Ride into the unknown with driving survival game Pacific Drive
Can you survive the highway to hell?
We’ve seen a number of driving video games over the years, however for the most half, their gameplay focuses on racing, demolition derbies, or navigating a big open world map. Pacific Drive is a brand new run-based, first-person driving survival game, the debut title from Seattle-based Ironwood Studios. The builders behind this new undertaking have labored on classics like Ratchet & Clank, Mortal Kombat, Call of Duty, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and lots of extra. Pacific Drive was revealed right this moment throughout the PlayStation State of Play, and featured a heart-pounding drive by means of darkish, desolate woods. It appears there’s a thriller afoot, and the solely technique to determine it out is to drive in direction of it.
“Your car is your only companion as you navigate a surreal and anomaly-filled reimagining of the Pacific Northwest,” says the description on the game’s official web site. “Structured as a ‘road-like,’ each excursion into the wilderness brings unique and strange challenges, as you restore and upgrade your car from an abandoned garage that acts as your home base. With the car as your lifeline, you’ll unravel a long-forgotten mystery as you make your way to the heart of the Olympic Exclusion Zone.”
While a lot of Pacific Drive stays a thriller, I’ve to confess that that is certainly one of the most original premises I’ve seen at these game showcases as of late. Government secrets and techniques, spooky monsters, and a few sort of supernatural climate phenomenon? Looks like a recipe for a basic, edge-of-your-seat journey. I’m normally fairly dangerous at driving mechanics in video games, so I feel I’ll most likely must brush up a bit earlier than Pacific Drive lastly releases.
Pacific Drive will likely be coming to PlayStation 5 and PC someday in 2023. Until then, I’ll be on the lookout for any extra updates, as a result of that is actually one I’ll be wanting ahead to.
