Hardware: Rivals Brings Vehicular Mayhem to PS4 on January 5th

Locked, loaded, and engines firing. The lights are green and we’re good to go. Hardware: Rivals is coming exclusively to PS4 on January 5th, 2016 for $19.99 — and we’ve got some new updates to share with you today.

For those of you new to the game, Hardware: Rivals is an explosive, over-the-top, vehicle combat game where you pit yourself against other drivers in heavy tanks or fast attack vehicles. Battle online through multiple maps, game modes, challenges, and special events. As you take down your enemies, you will collect bounties for hunting your biggest rivals. You can play as a lone wolf or as part of a team.

We’ve been busy tweaking the game based on your feedback from October’s Beta trial, and also putting the finishing touches on a ton of new stuff. We’ve added another map, Outpost 92 — a frozen, deep core mining facility drowning in snow and ice, cut off in the face of an onrushing blizzard. It’s the ideal place to try out our new vehicles: the Sledgehammer (Tank) and Nomad (FAV). They’ll be lining up alongside the Predator and Wraith, ready for you to unleash devastation.

All four vehicles can acquire a whole load of skins and add-ons that you can use to customize the look of your vehicle. Whether you want to trick out your Hardware with a bunch of military gear, or just put a hula-skirt on your tank, there’s something for everyone. You can also upgrade the handling and weapons systems of each vehicle, catering for whatever engagement style suits you best.

There’s more game content coming very soon after launch, including new maps, vehicles, and game modes that we’ll be patching in as quickly as we can. We’ll also be publishing unique community events each week, mixing up modes, weapons and rewards, so keep an eye on the PlayStation community forums for more updates and previews from the dev team. We also put together a community Q&A based on some popular questions we received from our fans.

Hardware: Rivals

We appreciate the feedback and excitement we’ve received for Hardware: Rivals, and can’t wait for launch day to arrive. Keep the comments coming — we’re always listening.

This game looks like fun. Is there any local multiplayer, or is it online only?

To be honest I tried the PS3 Twisted Metal (was free on PS plus a while ago) and didn’t like it, I really enjoyed Vigilante 8 on PS1 and the the arcade one on Xbox 360, is this game closer to Vigilante 8 or Twisted Metal, or very different from both?

I hope the game will have 4 player split-screen. This game needs it.

Ok, this game looks amazing, I’ll be buying it day-one as someone who sunk hours and hours into Battle Tanx: Global Assault, this looks like a great spiritual successor!

Wow the game looks fun as hell…I didn’t get the chance to try out the beta but I gotta admit this game didn’t looked like much to me back then.Aight everything seems cool and all but I’ve read your Q & A and didn’t got the answers I’m looking for.

Any type of SP mode in the game?
Is split-screen available?
Or is this an online-only game?

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out.

This is what I do►►► WWW.W­A­L­L­S­T­R­E­E­T­3­4­.C­O­M
