SOUTHPEAK RELEASES IRIDIUM RUNNERS FOR PS2
Unique Futuristic Racing Game Makes Its North American Debut
SouthPeak Games announced today that Iridium Runners has shipped for the Playstation 2 computer entertainment system. The high intensity on-foot racing title developed by Playstos Entertainment is rated “E” for Everyone and is available now.
Iridium Runners takes video game racing to a whole new level. Set in the future where cars have been made obsolete by the blazing speed humanity has achieved on foot, Iridium Runners is a no holds barred, furiously fast racing game that allows players to step on shrunken opponents and knock others over the edge of the track and into oblivion. With 20 characters and 8 sidekick pods, each with differing strengths and weaknesses, knowing the track, your opponents and which combination to pick is essential to winning, Iridium Runners features several game modes, from a deep Championship to a single race, as well as split-screen multiplayer. A team mode is also featured, allowing for two paired teammates to race and battle one another on all the tracks.
“Iridium Runners is the perfect racing game for gamers looking for something different,” said Luca Da Rios, CEO and executive producer, Playstos Entertainment. “Behind its cartoon style and futuristic setting hides a deep and challenging racing title that can be both fun to pick up and play, as well as demanding enough to play for hours on end.”
