Ride to Hell Comes Back to Earth
Remember Ride to Hell in 2008, the strange-looking biker-killing game about revenge and well... bikes? No? Well, neither do I, but it's recently resurfaced under the purview of Deep Silver, the mad geniuses behind offering such as the Saints Row series and Dead Island. Deep Silver seemed to have remembered that they've been keeping this game under wraps for nearly half a decade, and have brushed it off, given it new legs, and are planning to release it this year, announcing its return with a trailer.
So...Grindhouse with bikers? It seems to be the case here, a gritty, dark, and extremely stylistic action game - although how much of each would be represented in the final product, in what amounts, is yet to be seen. Will it be more akin to the over-the-top madness of Saints Row? Or more like the depressing gore and violence in Dead Island? Personally, I would prefer the former option, but the statement released seems to imply otherwise:
"Ride to Hell is the hard-hitting over-the-top action game of 2013 that doesn't hold back. Players take on the role of Jake Conway, a man hell-bent on bringing down a ruthless biker gang called The Devil's Hand. Jake will use any means necessary to enact his revenge, weaponizing his environment, getting up close and dirty with brutal melee combat, and engaging in high-speed shootouts on his custom hog."
