Two Tribes Announce RIVE for Consoles and PC

Two Tribes, the developer behind games like Toki Tori, Swords & Soldiers and EDGE has announced a brand new title. They’re calling it RIVE, and this is what they had to say about their new project:

“We’ve been working feverishly with our new base team of just three people to be able to announce RIVE to the world.

So what did we make!? We call it RIVE and we describe it as ‘the metal wrecking, robot hacking shooter’. It’s a 2D shooter / platformer with old school gaming values in a decidedly new school execution. During the game’s intense 360 degree shooting and platforming action, players learn to alter the behavior of their robotic enemies by collecting and uploading hacks.”

You can check out the announcement trailer below and also visit the official developer blog. RIVE is set to be released sometime in 2015, and given the track record of the company a Wii U version is almost guaranteed. RIVE will also be playable for the public at GamesCom 2014.
