First Look Gameplay Trailer for ‘CARPG’ RESISTOR

As Seen at the 41st Annual Golden Joystick Awards:

PQube and developer Long Way Home are thrilled to reveal a first look gameplay trailer, demonstrating how RESISTOR blends cinematic, character-driven storytelling with high-speed, stunt-infused racing as rising star Aster comes face to face with a dangerous pair of adversaries…   

This new trailer also introduces character and vehicle customisation, with an alternative look Aster, voiced by Thomas G Burt, jumping behind the wheel of several heavily modified refits of the R180 ‘Stagnum’ as it blazes across busy desert highways, threads the needle through a sprawling industrial complex, and navigates twisting subterranean tunnels.  


Utilise the character creator to design your own racing prodigy, Aster. In true RPG fashion choose from a wide selection of body shapes, facial features, hairstyles, skin tones, and accessories, with MILLIONS of different combinations possible! Once you’ve settled on your look, pick out an appropriate voice type, with feminine and masculine vocal talents courtesy of Rhiannon Moushall (Warframe, CrisTales, Cloudpunk) and Thomas G Burt (SMITE, The Prince of Tennis, Phoenix Point).  


Retrofitted with a finely tuned, high-performance (and slightly unstable), Star Point Motors GT1200 plasma engine, Aster’s iconic red and white first-generation R180 was inherited from their father, the legendary racer Eugene Aster. While this powerful machine provides the perfect entry point for fledgling racers participating in the early stages of Dekker’s tournament, later challenges may require more ‘specialised’ hardware. Collect new body kits and engine parts to modify the appearance and handling of your ride before hitting the track to dominate your rivals.


Aster’s road to victory begins in The Northern Wastes, a sparsely populated desert expanse littered with remnants of the world and characterised by dusty highways, monolithic mesas, and treacherous gulleys. At the centre of these badlands stands ‘The Rig’, a decommissioned oil platform home to a small community of outcasts and traders. Here you will accept your first missions allowing you to get to grips with the basics of stunt-racing and open-world exploration, while simultaneously making a name for yourself and building up your rep. As Aster progresses through Dekker’s Tournament new areas of the world will become available to explore, with increasingly more technical environments and tracks to tame!


RESISTOR is coming soon to Steam, Epic Games, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch!
