It’s a long time since Namco Bandai last made any noise about their reboot of the Ridge Racer series, but with Gamescom just around the corner, they’ve readied a trailer hinting towards an emphasis on city-building and car-smashing. City-building! Some of the first proper footage of Ridge Racer: Unbounded lies herein:
And a slice of text to go with the moving pictures:
Create an unlimited number of tracks with the City Creator, share it online and play!
There’s quite a lot of tasty looking destructible scenery on display, and the “City Creator” sounds like they might be planning on giving Trackmania 2 a run for its money. It looks like it has an open world layout to me, but since they are also making references to “tracks”, it’s hard to say just yet.
Ridge Racer Unbounded is out next year, and you can expect hands on impressions on it from Gamescom.
