SANTA CLARA, Calif., (March 20, 2019) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., in partnership with critically acclaimed studio Double Fine Productions, today announced RAD™, a 3D action rogue-like set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon not once, but twice. RAD will be available in Summer 2019 for STEAM®, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Nintendo Switch™ and Xbox One.
“We’re thrilled to finally reveal the game and can’t wait for the community to jump into this colorful RAD world,” said Randy Le, Brand Manager for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “Double Fine is bringing its trademark charm to the game with a unique story, interesting characters, and an unforgettable experience.”
In RAD, players take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown and unspeakable creatures. It’s here that they’ll find the solution to heal the world, and transform the cracked, barren landscape into a lush source of new life. But humanity’s future comes at great personal cost, as the deeper they journey into unknown lands, the more they will expose themselves to gnarly toxins which will wreak havoc on their fragile human form.
The fate of the world depends on the player, a sweet bat, and whatever strange new abilities they gain as the world around them ravages their body — twisting and mutating them into something far less than human, but far more powerful.
“The team at Double Fine and BANDAI NAMCO have worked so hard to get RAD together, and we’re so excited for our communities to jump into this wicked wasteland journey,” said Lee Petty, Project Lead. “We hope fans will enjoy the game as much as we’ve enjoyed building it.”
The game will go into a limited Closed Beta* for Steam starting April 8, and fans can sign up now at https://www.RADClosedBeta.com. For more information about RAD, please visit the official website at: https://www.bandainamcoent.com/games/rad
