Frontier Developments Announces ScreamRide

By Lexley Ford, 2 years ago
Announced during Microsoft's Gamescom 2014 Xbox Briefing and coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 early next year from Microsoft Studios and developer Frontier Developments, ScreamRide is a unique creation and action game that lets you build the most extreme roller coasters imaginable.

The game is not all about creation. Players can specialise in one of three roles; Engineer, Scream Rider or Demolition Expert, or work to improve their skills in all three. As an Engineer, players can use “hundreds of props, ride pieces and modular scenery” to create the most extreme roller coasters that their imaginations will allow, and try to solve various construction puzzles.

The Scream Rider role will put your piloting skills to the test as you control your own creations and attempt to achieve the highest scream rating for your riders. Xbox One players can also share their creations and pilot rides shared by their friends over Xbox Live as well as being able to show off their piloting skills using Twitch.

As fun as it is to create, everybody has a destructive side within them just itching to get out and the Demolition Expert role plays to that urge to destroy. Players are given control over the physics-based destruction and points are awarded for destroying everything in sight in “interesting ways”.

Alongside the announcement, Microsoft released this trailer that, as the name suggests, is full of screams and rides:

ScreamRide will be coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime in Spring 2015.
