Velocity Ultra already flirts with perfection on the PlayStation Vita, but Brighton-based developer FuturLab is hoping to take things to the next level with Velocity 2X on the PlayStation 4 and Vita. Announced mere moments ago during Sony’s big GamesCom press conference, the sequel promises plenty more of the fast-paced arcade action found in its predecessor – but there’s a pretty big twist.

For the first time, you’ll be able to step outside of your ship. The award-winning studio is keeping these new side-scrolling sections under wraps for the time being, but it promises that more will be revealed at the Eurogamer Expo next month. “In terms of how it changes the game, it makes it deeper, richer, more interesting, more varied, more exciting, and more fun,” managing director James Marsden told us ahead of the show.

You’ll be able to read our full interview with FuturLab tomorrow. While you wait, though, be sure to check out the title’s debut trailer embedded below. Has this announcement got your engines sizzling? Let us know in the comments section.
