Sierra today announced that it is teaming up with FuturLab to bring the independent developer’s critically acclaimed arcade shooter – Velocity 2X – to PC. In order to celebrate this announcement, Sierra has released a new trailer that can be viewed below.
Built around fast action and tight controls, Velocity 2X combines a top-down vertical shooter with a side-scrolling platformer, delivering the best of both worlds in the balance. Whether flying in her Quarp Jet or sprinting on foot, ace pilot Lt. Kai Tana can teledash through danger at the speed of light, crushing alien invaders and rescuing innocent survivors with incredible power.
Exclusive to the PC edition of Velocity 2X are special daily challenge stages, making the game’s deep leaderboard system even more compelling for competitive speedrunners. These versions also include all the bonus stages from the Critical Urgency and Dual Core DLC packs from Velocity 2X’s original PlayStation® releases. The full game features over 50 stages of twitch-trigger adventure, including engaging puzzle levels, dynamic boss battles and energetic audio-visual design.
Velocity 2X is coming to the PC this Summer.
