Stunt-Infused RPG Resistor Announced


PQube and Long Way Home have announced that their turbocharged narrative-driven adventure RPG Resistor will release on Nintendo Switch.

Set in the year 2060, the world’s governments have long since destroyed one another to be replaced by self-contained city-states that are presided over by a league of powerful corporations. Within the walls of these dense urban metropolises, citizens enjoy a life of comfort and excess that is far removed from the harsh realities of those that scrap a living in the endless desert wastes.

The corporations take turns hosting an annual racing tournament for the masses, setting the bravest challengers against each other in a series of exhilarating, high-speed death races to earn themselves permanent citizenship and a better life inside the cities.

You play as Aster, the only living child of the last great racer, who has entered this year’s event which has been sponsored by Dekker Industries. Hoping to secure the vital healthcare that they need to save their ailing mother, Aster quickly realises that life beneath Ethan Dekker’s corporate utopia might not be as idyllic as it initially seems.

That soon sees Aster’s race for the podium become a war to overthrow Dekker’s oppressive mega-corporation, in an experience that blends “stunt-infused racing with open-world exploration and explosive vehicular combat.”

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • A vividly imagined open world: Hit the road and traverse sun-scorched desert wastes in your vehicle or disembark to explore dusty outposts and urban sprawls.
  • Race in high-octane tournaments: Compete with your teammates in high-stakes contests featuring explosive vehicular combat and gravity-defying stunts.
  • Experience an expansive story: Accept missions from a huge cast of characters to boost your reputation, unlock additional story arcs, and multiple endings.
  • Take down challenging bosses: Go head-to-head with your biggest rivals in winner-takes-all showdowns to unlock new car abilities.
  • Expand your territory: Capitalise on your growing reputation to improve your base and develop areas of the map under your influence to reach new locations.
  • Lead the ultimate racing team: Recruit teammates and manage relationships within your fledgling crew. Develop affinity and unlock bonuses to aid you in your races.
  • Extensive customisation: Collect outfits, vehicle parts, music themes, and more! Visit your garage to customise almost every aspect of your driver and ride.
  • Introducing Long Way Home: A new UK-based developer of industry veterans with previous experience on AAA game changers such as Mass Effect Trilogy, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Days Gone.

Resistor will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
