New shortcut-centric racing game Super Impossible Road is headed to PlayStation 4, developer Wonderful Lasers announced today.
Just like in its mobile predecessor, the notoriously difficult Impossible Road, Super Impossible Road has you racing down descending, twisting paths that are extremely narrow. In order to win, you need to do what might be considered cheating in other games by skipping sections of the track.
As detailed in a PlayStation Blog post, though, there are rules to how this works; you can't simply drop down to the end of a track. After leaving the ground, you have five seconds to touch down again. As this time elapses, the screen begins to go white, and you'll respawn if you don't make contact with the track again before time is up. Also of note is the absence of rubber-banding--the system seen in certain racing games (often Mario Kart) where players trailing behind are given an invisible boost.
The trailer above gives a taste of how the game works and shows off the game's four-player split-screen mode. Details regarding online multiplayer are not confirmed at this point, but there is a single-player component if you aren't able to gather friends around the same TV to play. Levels are procedurally generated, and developer Wonderful Lasers says it features a 1080p resolution and 60 frames-per-second framerate.
A release date and price were not announced; the official website only says it's "coming soon" to PS4.
