Recently, independent developer and publisher Serious Sim unveiled a trailer for their new project, Heading Out – A Narrative Road Movie Racing Game.
Heading Out is a driving game inspired by road movies mixed with addictive storytelling, character creation, and resource management. We aim to recreate the spirit of iconic American road movies from the past, such as Vanishing Point, Two-Lane Blacktop, and Thelma & Louise.
Welcome to the mythical American West. You are a vigilante driving a muscle car around the country. How fast can you go from one coast to the other? Who or what are you running from? Are you looking for adventure? Or do you want to get lost on the highways laid across the vast American plains?
Sit in a classic muscle car, tune in to a great soundtrack, and travel through the American West. Escape from the police, chase other drivers, maneuver in traffic jams, blast through sandstorms, contemplate the views on a peaceful night in the desert … And most importantly: enjoy the ride!
The game is scheduled to release in 2022 on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4/5, and Switch.
