Retro City Rampage Gets Graphics Update, Tweaks, Sale Price On PlayStation Consoles
For those of you still tooling around the mad streets of Theftopolis in the old-school-tastic Retro City Rampage for PlayStaiton 3 and PlayStation Vita, you might want to fire up the game and get to downloading the newly released update. It adds a few tweaks to the game, including a new enhanced graphics mode and a new de-enhanced mode, too.
To celebrate today’s update, Retro City Rampage has been discounted on PlayStation consoles, down to $4.99. A Cross-Play title, that single price of admissions will net you a copy of the game for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. If you still need some convincing, the RCR demo has also been updated, giving players a bigger chunk of the game to experience before making a purchasing decision.
For a better idea of what the game offers, we offered a breakdown of the content back when it first launched for PC and PS3. RCR went on to make a splash on Xbox 360, too, meaning players can commit virtual crime on just about any modern platform.
Outlined on the PlayStaiton Blog by developer Biran Provinciano, today’s new update for the PlayStation version of the games “takes things forward and backward.”
First up is the RETRO+ Enhanced Graphics Mode. Just like all of the game’s other visual modes, this one puts a different sheen on the screen, giving RCR a whole new look. While most of the graphical lenses emulate classic consoles, the RETRO+filter gives it a “neo-retro” boost with dynamic shadows and twice as many colors. That should help all of the bits and pieces stand out more than ever.
There’s also a Prototype Version available. This 8-bit accurate prototype is available within the in-game video game cabinet in either Nolan’s Arcade or Doc Choc’s house. The intent is to show you what Retro City Rampage would have played like were it actually made on older consoles. There’s even a making of video outlining the process.
Finally, the whole package is rounded out with a few additional tweaks, including an improved 3D racer, a gallery, and a look at the top 50 character styles pulled from the 215,382 players on the Retro City Rampage leaderboards.
