Today Sierra launched Velocity 2X, the award-winning arcade shooter from independent developer FuturLab, on Xbox One and Windows PC. These new and electrifying editions of the game feature ranked daily challenge levels plus all of the bonus content contained in the “Critical Urgency” and “Dual Core” DLC from its original release on PlayStation systems.
A light-speed action game with responsive controls, Velocity 2X flows energetically between two trigger-testing genres: a top-down vertical shooter and a side-scrolling platformer. Whether dashing through enemy strongholds in the nimble Quarp Jet or on foot, players can unleash a barrage of attacks and teleport precisely through danger in the blink of an eye, rewarding gutsy moves and quick reflexes. Competitive leaderboards rank player performance by speed, completion percentage, and overall score to support dedicated speedrunners across each of the more than 50 stages in the game.
Set in the distant future, Velocity 2X stars Lt. Kai Tana, an ace fighter pilot who must use her raw firepower, wits, and agility to battle hostile aliens and free her fellow prisoners. The adventure bursts off the screen with bold art design inspired by the classics of 80s sci-fi, as well as a variety of colorful worlds, immense boss battles, dazzling visual effects, and a pulsing techno soundtrack.
