Car combat game Dark Future has a release date and trailer

Dark Future: Blood Red States is an adaptation of one of Games Workshop's non-Warhammer games, a post-apocalyptic game of Mad Max-style car combat. Auroch Digital's videogame version is due out on May 16 as they've announced with the trailer above.

As the video shows, a 'command mode' will let you slow down time to give orders to your car covered in missile launchers and mine-layers. It's set in the year 2023, because the original tabletop game was made in the 1980s, but you can insert your own jokes about its potential accuracy here.

Dark Future: Blood Red States will be available on Steam.

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
