After a very successful and entertaining beta last weekend, Codemasters is sharing more information on the four different race modes in ONRUSH. As I stated last week, ONRUSH is not a race in the traditional sense. There is no finish line, and if you far too far behind, the game rubber-bands you right back into the heat of the action. Your goals in ONRUSH are different, and though the video makes things clear enough, here is a breakdown:
Countdown – Countdown is a race through the gates against an ever-ticking clock. Hitting the gates will add precious seconds to your team’s time, keeping you in the game.
Lockdown – Lockdown is a race to fight for control of a moving zone in a 100mph King of the Hill free for all. Get in the zone and fight for survival.
Switch – Survive as long as you can hunting down your opponents. You’ll get increasingly stronger vehicles each time you’re knocked out, but so will they. Be strategic and work with your team to win.
Overdrive – Overdrive mode is a pure ‘boost to win’ onslaught until the very end. Get boost any way you can as quickly as possible and burn it up even quicker.
Only Countdown and Overdrive modes were available in the beta, so I'm very anxious to try the other modes.
ONRUSH has a couple of different packages to preorder in anticipation of the June 5 release. The Onrush Day One Edition comes with the unique 'Vortex' buggy design, with the Onrush Deluxe Edition including eight exclusive additional vehicle designs with gold and black liveries, extra Crashtag artwork and Track Tombstones.
Onrush will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on June 5, 2018.
