We're being blessed with a little respite over the Christmas break, but January's already shaping up to be a gigantic month – for digital releases at least. Sony's confirmed that colourful car combat title Hardware: Rivals will be rolling out exclusively on the PlayStation 4 from 5th January in Europe and North America. The game will retail for £16.99/$19.99 – though that release date also happens to coincide with the day that we'd expect the PlayStation Plus update. Just sayin'.
"For those of you new to the game, Hardware: Rivals is an explosive, over-the-top, vehicle combat game where you pit yourself against other drivers in heavy tanks or fast attack vehicles," senior producer Daniel Durnin explained. "Battle online through multiple maps, game modes, challenges, and special events. As you take down your enemies, you will collect bounties for hunting your biggest rivals."
There'll be four vehicles available in the main game, but each will feature a roster of cosmetic upgrades, allowing you to customise your weapon of choice. The developer, SCE's Connected Content Group, is also promising plenty of post-release support, including "new maps, vehicles, and game modes that we'll be patching in as quickly as we can".
