If there’s one thing that I’ve picked up on in gaming, is that this industry is full of trends. Cyclical trends. We’ve got new consoles on the way. Several genres are making a comeback and old favourites are returning. And burning rubber at full speed, is Carmageddon, the road rage racing game which just refuses to give up. Bring it on brother.
Currently, Carmageddon: Reincarnation has a release date of sometime in the first quarter of 2014. Launching on Steam, the game will be up for grabs on the Early Access platform as well, as it proceeds to repeatedly run over cows and pedestrians.
What’s more, Stainless games will be running a promotion wherein 99 gamers can earn the game for free, as well as all that DLC that will arrive after launch. For free, gratis and niks. More details here.
Moving on, Jason Garber, Publishing Director at Stainless Games had this to say in the press release which I will now copy and paste from:
We are delighted to be making this announcement today. Anticipation for the arrival of this new chapter in the life of the Carmageddon Brand has been building since we regained the rights. The existing Carmageddon community and a whole new generation of fans is out there waiting for this, and with Early Access on Steam they’ll be able to play, engage with us and give feedback as we continue towards the full release.
If you haven’t played a game of Carmageddon before, then you’ve missed out on one of the cult classics of gaming. Think Need for Speed, but with the kind of disregard for road rules that you’d find on a Joburg highway and with more blood than a Cape Town organic market when the baboons invade. If you’re running a mobile device capable of it though, don’t forget that you can snag an updated copy of the original game for cheap on the latest Humble Bundle.
