Frankfurt, Germany, May 31, 2016 – Following the successful PC release earlier this year, Frankfurt-based publisher/developer Deck13 today announced that its award-winning party racer Obliteracers will hit the PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4 and the Xbox Store for Xbox One on July 15, 2016.
Michael Davies (CEO, Varkian Empire): “We were thrilled to see how well the game was received on PC, and now we’re bringing the experience into the lounge room where it really shines. We’re looking forward to some seriously chaotic party racing nights.”
Jan Klose (CEO, Deck13): “The PC release on Steam showed us the tremendous potential in this party racer. Obliteracers has had several very successful months and we’re looking forward to seeing its performance on consoles.”
Obliteracers is an award-winning party racer in which up to 16 players have to prove their skills on one screen. The game is less about speed and more about keeping up with other players, using weapons to knock them out of the race. To destroy or to be destroyed – that’s what it’s about. Compete with friends locally or online against others, with dozens of game modifiers to keep things fresh. Gaming nights in your living room just got a bit cozier…and a whole lot louder.
