combat soaked in '80s cartoon style this September, with action game Auto Age:
Standoff from independent video game developer Phantom Compass. Launching on PC
via Steam on September 21 for $19.99, Auto Age: Standoff pits players against
each other in online and local multiplayer battles for vehicular supremacy.
Developer Phantom Compass will roll out game updates and new content after
launch in order to continue supporting the game’s multiplayer experience.
Set in the colorful wastelands of New America, Auto Age: Standoff allows players
to customize vehicles with powerful weaponry that will enable them to launch
missiles at enemy drivers, ram cars, lay mines and much more. Fueling the chaos
is a retro-future dashboard mixtape and soundtrack, where guitar-shredding and
synthwave music power a thirst for vehicular destruction.
“Auto Age is an ideal multiplayer experience that melds fast-paced vehicular
dogfights with team strategy,” said Tony Walsh, Director at Phantom Compass.
“With easy-to-learn controls and kinetic matches, players can spend hours
destroying their friends (and enemies) online and on the couch. To enhance the
experience, we will use player feedback to update Auto Age with new content and
gameplay after release.”
Players can ride headlong into the mayhem of multiplayer online combat or battle
bots as a lone road warrior. With Auto Age: Standoff's versatile split-screen
options, players can skirmish privately or battle online in Team Deathmatch,
Free For All Deathmatch, Base Assault and more to come.
