Paris -- Sept. 18, 2018 -- Independent developer Midgar Studio and global game publisher Playdius announced today the official console launch for the futuristic parkour game Hover! Available today for $24.99/24.99€ on PlayStation®4 and launching soon for Xbox One on Sept. 19 and Nintendo Switch™ on Sept. 20, 2018. The game has been rated “E for Everyone” by the ESRB (PEGI 12 in Europe).
Hover on consoles also brings cross-platform play*, allowing console owners to join forces with Steam friends as they dash, slide, and bounce through Hover City in rebellion against the city's Great Admin.
Hover is a fast-paced single and multiplayer parkour game set in a futuristic 3D open world. The game takes place in ECP17, a high-tech city also called Hover City by its inhabitants and located on a distant planet. The Great Admin cut the communication with the Galactic Union and established a strong dictatorship. Having fun has become illegal and entertainment is banished.
You’re in charge of a team of young rebels, who fight against the new anti-leisure laws oppressing the city. Equipped with high-tech gears allowing amazing jumps and speed, the rebels can roam the city to sabotage the propaganda, help citizens, and put an end to the oppression by reaching the Galactic Union!
Hover unique features include:
An amazing City: Hover City is a huge futuristic colorful city. Its buildings offer breathtaking vertical playgrounds.
Astonishing moves: Slide, bounce, dash and wall-jump through Hover City thanks to your high-tech suit.
