Greetings, PlayStation Blog! It’s Ben Tester here from Wales Interactive bringing you great news on the upcoming PS4 kart racer, Coffin Dodgers! We’ve teamed up with UK-based developers, Milky Tea Studios, to bring you an old age pensioner’s race for survival in Spring 2016.
After settling down for some peace and tranquillity, the residents of the retirement village, Sunny Pines, have been idling away the days. That is, until a creepy new resident, Mr Grim Reaper, looks set to turn retirement on its head. After years trawling the earth for souls to harvest, Mr Grim Reaper lays his hat in the village of Sunny Pines where he will harvest souls from the comfort of his rocking chair.
However, seven of the sprightliest OAPs have other ideas and set out to terminate Grim’s morbid plans with a mobility scooter race to the death! Prove your worthiness in the tournament and unlock the Grim Reaper himself. With the aid of his trusty scythe, you’ll continue the story and capture the souls of Sunny Pines for yourselves.
Battle your friends! With a two-four local multiplayer mode you can actively battle and knock your friends from their mobility scooters, get tangled up in epic crashes and cause mayhem! The “Road Rash” style player-to-player combat features wacky weapons and collectable destructive power-ups to stop your mates in their tracks. Watch your frail backs though as you’re never too far away from an EMP powered defibrillator.
Further game modes range from single-player story, time trials, quick races, and the open-world “Crazy Granddad” game where you race against the clock to find special items in the Sunny Pines district.
Have a need for speed? Get out your wallets as you’ll be spending your well-earned coins in the Garage where you can unlock and upgrade your very own pimped-up mobility scooter! Here you can buff up your kart bodies, swap out your engine parts, choose new paint jobs or upgrade your weapons… you’ll need these if you plan on beating Grim over the finish line! Choose your mods carefully to suit your driving style and build the scooter that will literally save your soul.
Coffin Dodgers is coming to PS4 in Spring 2016 so keep an eye out for another announcement coming soon with further details. We’d love to hear your feedback so please feel free to leave comments below or stop by the Coffin Dodgers website. Thank you all for reading!
Race In Peace.
