FLASHOUT 2 Looks Like A Great Futuristic Racer

Posted by , | Views: 8,743
FLASHOUT 2 looks like it will revive futuristic fast-paced combat racers and that's a pretty good thing. I have been waiting for a decent game like this to arrive on Linux and this may deliver.

  • Amazing racing experience!
  • Addicting and enhanced Career Mode!
  • Free Online Multiplayer with different game modes!
  • Licensed electronic music!
  • 10 highly-detailed futuristic circuits (Los Angeles, London, Paris, Warsaw, Moscow, Frankfurt and more)!
  • Dozens of challenging races!
  • New and unique game modes (Destruction, Elimination, Versus)!
  • Upgradeable, super-fast ships!
  • Weapons and guns!
  • Precise, fun and awesome controls!
  • Many cool and useful bonuses!
  • Clever AI, adapting to your style of play!
  • Interactive Equalizer – music affects graphics!
  • Gorgeous visual effects!
  • Game controllers support!

FLASHOUT 2 is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed anti-gravity racer FLASHOUT 3D (2012)! Get into one of many ultra-fast ships and use your arsenal of rockets, guns, bonuses and upgrades to fight your way to victory!

FLASHOUT 2 offers a fresh and addicting racing experience featuring a redesigned and enhanced Career Mode with story elements, massive improvements in matter of steering, physics, opponent’s AI, and other gameplay elements, an Online Multiplayer Mode and introduces completely new and exciting game modes, such as Destruction, Elimination and Versus!

FLASHOUT 2 also features high-end console-quality graphics, some of the best and most accessible controls to allow you to focus on pure action, amazing licensed electronic music and game controllers support! Additionally the game offers a unique interactive equalizer, that analyzes in-game music and accordingly determines, in real-time, what the visual effects look like!

They have stated to me that a Linux version already exists and they try to develop all three at the same time:
QuoteYes an early Linux version already exists and we try to develop the Mac, Windows and Linux versions at the same time, so the plan is to release the Linux version with the version for Windows and Mac :). Cheers!


They also stated that it will come to Desura as well for the non-Steam fans amongst us.

They are looking for help getting onto Steam, so if you like the sound then give it a vote on greenlight. Article taken from

Nice, a WipEout HD replacement. This should help ease transitions from PS3 to Steam Machines.

A blatant ripoff of course, but still: Lovin' it! Wipeout is great fun.

w00t, I already bought it some time back, when it was available for android.
I'd be very happy to buy it again for a linux version in steam.

Ah, yes this looks cool, but will it have Dub-step music????

If this plays anything like F-Zero GX (The best racing game of all time IMO), then this is a day 1 buy for me.

Hopefully it gets a proper interface. You can tell how mobile it is just by looking at that trailer. Mobile games are also known for things like short experiences and micro-transactions. Can't say I'm hyped. I'll check to see if it exceeds expectatioms after release.

This looks like a modern version of WipEout! While this looks really awesome, I sure as hell hope the game doesn't feature any dubstep music.
