Split/Second movie shows Powerplays

Wednesday, 2nd December 2009 12:28 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Black Rock’s put out a new Split/Second trailer, showing off environmental “Powerplays” in the bomb-heavy racer. It’s after the break.

There’s plenty of gameplay footage in there, and very good it looks too. We’re off to see this in Brighton next week, and after playing it at the EG Expo in Leeds we’re pretty pumped.

It’s out next May.

    I’m hoping this game has Burnout Paradise levels of enjoymentability, playability and Platinumability. :)

    If this turns out to be even half as exciting as it looks, we’re in for a sweet treat!

    I’m not sure my addled brain will be able to handle/keep up with that. It’s making my eyes go funny just watching … ;)

    I’m liking the look of this but have a few reservations about how it will play out practically. I.e. cause a big powerplay and then? Do you just romp to victor leaving everyone in your wake as you would expect or do we get a huge amount of rubber banding to make the game more “fun”?

    DrDamn: The most obvious way to balance this would be to make for quick respawns, especially in multiplayer. That way it will still affect the gameplay, but only players who drive well enough anyway to activate it consistently will gain a significant advantage.

    And I assume that there’ll obviously be difficulty settings if it seems too easy for some.
