of the upcoming ID@Xbox title so far, here's a quick run down of the key features to come with the game:You’ll get to:
• Pick between 8 cars and wreak havoc in 4 space arenas, with same as much content to be unlocked by playing;
• Unleash an arsenal of 10 pick-up weapons including shotguns, grenades, homing missiles, energy spears, laser sniper rifles and mines, for your destructive amusement;
• Play defensively without being tediously passive! By raising your front shield, you can bounce off bullets right in the face of your attackers. Ha ha, BOOM!
• Enjoy 6 game modes, from basic Deathmatch to DeathRace, LastManStanding, Spong, and the RocketLeague-sque 2D SpaceSoccer;
• Mock your friends for their lack of hand-eye coordination, while you master the challenging zero-friction movement system;
• No friends around, or missing one player? Face the vicious AI and its 4 different difficulty settings.
