On the surface, this looks like a lot of the other games the company has been producing under the Urban Trial series, only this time around they put it in a Mad Max kind of future where you dodge a lot of trains.

Having just won the award for ‘Best Gameplay’ at the Game Connection Development Awards during GDC week, Steel Rats is now ready to be revealed to the world in greater detail. This new look showcases the advanced bike physics, explosive motorbike combat and revolutionary 2.5D exploration that allows vertical riding and the seamless changing of lanes, creating a unique sense of depth on every level. Combined, these elements create a new and fresh gameplay style that defines the game. Wreck and ride as part of the larger-than-life punk biker gang that is the Steel Rats, choose from a selection of unique characters to play as, and unlock new special abilities along the way. Steel Rats is a visceral and groundbreaking evolution of the 2.5D action-arcade genre, fusing destructive, octane-fueled motorbike combat and death-defying stunt gameplay, set in a visually stylized retro future world.
