Announced earlier this year, we were already on board with Resistor, but the racing action in this trailer definitely has us more excited. Combining an open world RPG with super-arcadey motorsport, the game looks to be shaping up really nicely.

We're not completely convinced by the narrative aspect shown at the start of the video, but once we get to the vehicular mayhem, it starts to show real promise. We like the stylised look, but most of all, the action just looks like a lot of fun. Swiping opponents by spinning your car around, pulling off amazing aerial tricks, dodging traffic, drifting for miles — it looks like a blast.

Obviously the key to any racing game is how it feels to drive, but the early signs are looking good. What do you make of this trailer for Resistor? Tell us in the comments section below.
