New 'Strider' Coming This Month to 5 Platforms

Posted Wed Feb 5, 2014 at 08:40 AM PST by

Double Helix & Capcom have revealed two new challenge modes.

The new 'Strider' is set to release on February 18th for the PS3 and PS4, followed on the 19th with the 360, Xbox One, and PC. The downloadable title is priced at $14.99 and had been developed by Double Helix, most recently known for the new 'Killer Instinct.'

Capcom has also shared information about two special challenge modes for the game, Beacon Run and Survival Mode. Beacon Run is a "speed run-style racing mode that challenges players to get from checkpoint to checkpoint in record time, slashing their way through enemies all the while," while Survival mode is meant to test "your combat skills and earn that Special-A Class ranking Hiryu's known for by taking on progressively difficult waves of enemies while equipped with different ability loadouts."

Naturally, global leaderboards will help to facilitate competition and replay. The game will also have different costumes for Hiryu that can be found in the story mode and are meant to be the clothes of fallen Striders.
