Velocity 2X PS Plus Sept hype sets review expectation

By Updated on

Nine days ago we said the PS Plus September 2014 update needed a certain game for PS4 and while we knew another indie game wouldn’t please everyone, it shocked us that we were the only site that got the prediction correct. Velocity 2X is one of the free PS Plus September games for PS4, and this was one of our preferred indie choices if we had to have another indie game.

Since making that prediction and it being proven correct, the official FuturLab Twitter account has been hyping the game up and even getting followers to create fan art in the Velocity 2X image. In fact, you can see one tweet with some fan art from Velocity 2X below that shows gamer creativity.

The problem with creating so much hype lies with “expectation”. The higher you raise gamers expectations for Velocity 2X, then the harder it will be for the developers to satisfy the PS Plus subscribers when they get hands-on with their September free games.

You can see some tweets below that reveals the developers telling fans they won’t be disappointed with Velocity 2X on PS4 or PS Vita.

There’s of course plenty of PS Vita owners happy to see Velocity 2X as a free game next month, which can be seen within another tweet below along with a space for another game icon displayed in a photo.

Do you expect all the Velocity 2X hype to deliver when review scores arrive, and also when people get the game for free with their PS Plus September update? IGN called Velocity 2X, “PSN’s Most Promising Upcoming Game” back in April 2014. We’re excited about this title even with nothing but indie games appearing on PS4 within PS Plus, although time will tell if this game truly delivers and meets expectation.

You can learn more about the full PlayStation Plus September lineup within this article. We’d also love to know what you think Velocity 2X will score in the upcoming round of review ratings.

    I can’t wait to play this game. I didn’t notice until now, but the art-style and graphics remind me of Big Sky Infinity that was released on the Vita a year or so back. I wonder if it’s using the same game engine.
