Sierra launched FuturLab’s Velocity 2X for PC and Xbox One. This version of the game features ranked daily challenge levels along with all of the bonus DLC released on PS consoles.
Velocity 2X mixes two trigger-testing genres: a top-down vertical shooter and a side-scrolling platformer. Whether dashing through enemy strongholds in the nimble Quarp Jet or on foot, players can unleash a barrage of attacks and teleport swiflty precisely through danger, rewarding gutsy moves and quick reflexes. Competitive leaderboards rank player performance by speed, completion percentage, and overall score to support dedicated speedrunners across each of the more than 50 stages in the game.
The game stars Lt. Kai Tana, an ace fighter pilot who must use her raw firepower, wits, and agility to battle hostile aliens and free her fellow prisoners. The adventure bursts off the screen with bold art design inspired by the classics of 80s sci-fi, as well as a variety of colourful worlds, immense boss battles, dazzling visual effects, and a pulsing techno soundtrack.
