Ready to Run Racing to PS4 This Year

Alexey Menshikov's Avatar Posted by Founder and CEO, Beatshapers

Hi there! This is Alexey Menshikov, CEO of Ukraine-based Beatshapers. I’m excited finally back to PlayStation.Blog and announce our new project – Ready to Run.

In case you’re not familiar with Beatshapers, we’re a small developer and digital publisher from Kiev, Ukraine. To date, we’ve published 19 games on PlayStation Store. The most significant are BreakQuest series (minis), StarDrone Extreme (PS Vita), Jetpack Joyride (minis) and Furmins (PS Vita, made together with Housemarque).

Ready to Run is a furious RC car racing game in a unique retro-futuristic setting, and it’s actually planned as a franchise, with the first title coming exclusively to PS4.

Here are a few of Ready to Run’s features:

  • Highly responsive, arcade-style RC racing physics
  • 15+ futuristic radio-control cars with various designs
  • Single city environment featuring endless track configurations for different race modes
  • Real-time and asynchronous multiplayer modes
  • Various scoreboards with filters, with an emphasis on PSN friends

We’ve always been fans of RC racing games, and it seems now’s the time for a new title on PlayStation Store. We are planning to launch Ready to Run on PS4 in Q2 2014.

This is all for now, for more updates, please become a fan on our Facebook page and follow @beatshapers on Twitter.

We’ll have more exciting announcements coming this year for PS4 and PS Vita, so stay tuned!

If you base even a fraction of your design off of San Francisco Rush 2049……it will be day one for me!…..just sayin.

I was a BIG fan of the original Breakquest, as well as the newest one on Vita!
If this game is half as addicting as those games, then you can count me in!

Sony yes off topic but we still need ‘official’ Sony headset support like you promised for january, it’s not a luxury, headsets are a basic that should’ve been added before you even launched the ps4, promised by the end of the month and yet nothing.

I did not know you were from the Ukraine, BeatShapers. That’s pretty cool; glad to see more games coming from all over Europe. That territory just seems to care about games North America doesn’t like to make much… like how devs over there kept making point-n-click PC adventures when the genre was dead in the US. And now you’re working on a promising-sounding arcade racer, another genre I love that no one cares about much anymore. Please make this really good. I do want to see a trailer though. So I can’t wait until you guys finish up that PS4 rendering you mentioned in the first reply – I really hope it looks great!

    We are from Kiev and indeed its not many devs care of consoles here nowadays. We have more PS4 games in various stages now – actually flocking from PS Vita to PS4, so stay tuned.

Why would you not make the game 60fps?
You people realize it’s a racing game right? One of the only genres where 60fps is a standard?
