Strider Next Week; New Game Modes Detailed

Strider will come out next week, announces CapCom Unity, saying the reimagined platformer will hit Windows PCs along with the Xbox editions on February 19th, which is one day after the game's debut on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The game will be $14.99 on all platforms, and prepurchases are now underway on Steam, offering the soundtrack as a bonus. They also announce two new gameplay modes as well as the chance to wear dead people's clothes, offering new screenshots to illustrate the news. Here's the deal:

We're also happy to reveal today that the game will feature some fun extras to elevate replayability. First, there are two new Challenge Modes:

Beacon Run
This is a speed run-style racing mode that challenges players to get from checkpoint to checkpoint in record time, slashing their way through enemies all the while.

Survival Mode
Test your combat skills and earn that Special-A Class ranking Hiryu's known for by taking on progressively difficult waves of enemies while equipped with different ability loadouts.

Additionally, the game will support global leaderboards in both the Challenge Modes and the main Story Mode. That means you can compete with your friends, or random dudes in France. It also means Unity events!

Finally, we've got Costumes. Throughout the Story Mode, you'll come across the costumes of fallen Striders. Once discovered, Hiryu will be able to wear them during the game. Find all the costumes to unlock a full array of cosmetic customization options, letting you choose your own style.
