Have you ever take the wheel of a car, and found yourself wishing that you could show that guy who just pulled out in front of you and is now driving at a snail’s pace that he messed with the wrong fella. Buddy, you should get some help then, cause that ain’t healthy thinking. Or legal. Possibly. What is totally legal and cathartic, is to exercise your right to reply with a front fender in a digital arena.

Codemasters happen to have a game that fits that bill, in the form of OnRush. It’s out later this year, and its core appeal lies in the idea of it being the most destructive force on the road since I figured out how to photoshop a driver’s license. That beta will kick off on Xbox One and PS4 next week Thursday.

Here’s what will be on offer in the beta:

Times

OnRush (2)

  • Thursday 17 May until Monday 21 May
  • Starts at 3PM CAT/2PM BST/9AM EST

Tracks (Both will feature a variety of weather conditions and different times of day)

  • Big Dune Beach
  • Crater Lake

Modes

  • Overdrive
  • Countdown

Vehicle Abilities

OnRush (3)

Blade

  • Firewall: RUSHing leaves a destructive trail of fire behind
  • Crashbang: Your Tombstones are blinding when collected by opponents
  • Tumbler: Earn RUSH directly from front and back flips

Vortex

  • Turbulence: RUSHing leaves a disruptive wake of turbulent air behind
  • Touchdown: Timed boost landings are more effective
  • Spiral: Earn RUSH directly from performing barrel rolls

Interceptor

  • Rampage: Refill your RUSH gauge with every successful takedown
  • Surge: Initial boost usage is more powerful but more costly
  • Pinpoint: Earn RUSH directly from performing near misses

Titan

  • Blockade: RUSHing drops a trail of blockades that slow your opponents down
  • Shield: Give nearby teammates a shield that offers protection from big hits
  • Impact: Earn RUSH directly from taking down opponents

I’ll see you guys online next week. Just remember: Stay the hell out of my way if you know what’s good for.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
