Hey, do you guys remember way back in, like, 2008 when suddenly, thanks to the likes of FX's biker drama Son's of Anarchy
and the Lost and Damned
GTV IV expansion, the outlaw biker lifestyle seemed to be the next big thing for fiction to delve into, and then, for about five seconds, there was this open world outlaw biker game called Ride to Hell
that was a thing people were talking about? I do.
Unfortunately, that game disappeared shortly thereafter and I wondered if I'd dreamt the entire experience.
Well, apparently I didn't because Deep Silver has announced that Ride to Hell
is alive and well and that open-world biker game still exists (in some form) as Ride to Hell: Retribution
. Actually, maybe it's not open-world because details like that are still a little thin on the ground despite the fact that Ride to Hell: Retribution
is set for release this June for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Windows PC. Ride to Hell: Retribution
stars outlaw biker Jake Conway who is looking for revenge against awesomely-named rival club The Devil's Hand. There will be both on foot and on bike combat and strip clubs, and the game is being developed by Eutechnyx. That's all we really know at this point.
But that's not the only Ride to Hell
game on the horizon. Next on the hit list is Ride to Hell: Route 666
, developed by Black Forest Games. In it, you'll conquer the legendary Route 66 using your own team of bikers. The combat is face-paced and arcade-y and should be simple to figure out for anyone familiar with team sports - because team outlaw biker murder spree is a team sport now. Ride to Hell: Route 666
will be available for download this June on Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam.
Finally, in the great pantheon of Ride to Hell
titles, we've got Ride to Hell: Beatdown
. Ride to Hell: Beatdown
is a "rock'n'roll brawler" for mobile platforms. There's no release window and more details will be forthcoming in the future.
Sounds like the people at Deep Silver have been busy little bees in the years the "Ride to Hell
" concept has been dark. Hopefully, at least one of these games will kick the amount of ass we're being led to believe they will.
