Publisher BadLand Games and developer FuturLab have now confirmed that the sci-fi platformer VELOCITY 2X: CRITICAL MASS EDITION will indeed be coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita as a boxed release in the near future. Currently Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition will only be launching in UK, Europe, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand on June 30, 2017. A North America release date is yet to be released.
Fans and newcomers to the franchise will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the development of Velocity 2X with war stories about the game’s creation, bass thumping tunes from the soundtrack, and the buttery-smooth 60 fps puzzle-platforming action Velocity 2X is known for. Those who pre-order the game will receive an exclusive artbook courtesy of FuturLab (retailer-dependent).
“Aside from receiving the lovely art book, soundtrack and all the expansions, the behind-the-scenes special feature content is really excellent. Fans will learn a great deal about how the game came about, how it developed, and the important roles that Shahid Ahmad and Joris de Man played in its production.” – James Marsden, director, FuturLab
ABOUT VELOCITY 2X:
Velocity 2X: Critical Mass Edition casts players as Lt. Kai Tana, the pilot of the prototype Quarp Jet. Nefarious tactics send Kai Tana and her teleporting Quarp Jet to a galaxy ruled by the evil Vokh, a tyrannical race of aliens who believe they have a divine right to rule the universe. They’ve created an armada by enslaving other races and seek to make humanity their next conquest. Kai Tana must free the enslaved races and use her Quarp Jet to stop the Vokh before they can discover its secrets and invade Earth.

He developed and published his first game for PSP and PS3 in 2010 called Coconut Dodge, which won Game of the Year 2010 from PSN Stores. By 2012, Velocity was born – and FuturLab soon became an award-winning game studio developing original handheld and console games.
