Deep Silver Announces Ride To
Hell – A Brand New Multi-Platform Game For International Release
Global video game developer and
publisher Deep Silver today released early details of its very first US bound
title Ride to Hell produced by their internal development studio.
The game is set in the last years of
the roaring 1960s, a time of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. The biker movement,
rock music and the hippie counterculture all add to the fascinating atmosphere
to be experienced in Ride to Hell.
Action-loaded from the very start
with free roaming environments, players can immerse themselves in the liberty
and freedom of riding full throttle with their gang on a multitude of different
vehicles through the dusty flats of Western America. Protecting their turf,
their brothers and their machines from rival gangs is just a taste of what this
epic game will involve.
Ride to Hell is not for the
faint-hearted; it’s aimed heavily at the player who wants to become fully
involved in the original West Coast biker culture. With its hard drinking,
bare-knuckle environment, this is as close to the action as you can get.
In a movie-style production model,
the internal Deep Silver studio is teaming up with leading creative companies
such as Eutechnyx, Perspective Studios, and others, to bring the authentic and
massive game world of Ride to Hell to life.
"The Deep Silver development team
has worked on some of the greatest and grittiest, freeform-style games to ever
hit the market," Cathy Tische, vice president of sales and marketing at Deep
Silver, Inc. "They are pulling out all the stops to bring the biker gang world
alive in Ride to Hell, from the 1960s art style, music and scenery to the
completely raw and intense game play."
"Ride to Hell is one of Deep
Silver’s largest global multiplatform game launches to date and one that will
put Deep Silver on the map in the US," says Hannes Seifert, managing director at
the Deep Silver development studio. "Ride to Hell captures the spirit of the
biker movement in the 1960s, while delivering an authentic, action-packed game
Ride to Hell – This brand new
multi-platform game has been in development for over a year and is due for a
worldwide release simultaneously on next-gen consoles and PC in the 2nd Quarter
