by on June 30, 2011

If there’s one thing that everybody loves to do it’s shooting things down in space. In space no-one can hear you scream but everybody can hear you pew-pew.

Atari know this. They know this very well indeed.

Atari, one of the world’s most recognised publishers and producers of interactive entertainment, announced today the release of Star Raiders. The return of Star Raiders combines tense aerial assaults and dogfights with a new compelling storyline, striking visual style and exhilarating single player gameplay. Star Raiders is now available on the PlayStation 3.

Originally introduced in 1979, Star Raiders blazed an all new trail, becoming the first ever first-person space combat title. The game inspired several generations of “space combat simulation” titles throughout the 80’s and 90’s. The exciting new take on this Atari treasure pays tribute to the original while ushering in an all new, captivating episodic experience. The game offers familiar battle elements including space warps and galactic tactical maps with all new features like radical battle transformations and customizable ships.

Developed by Incinerator Studios, Star Raiders carries a suggested retail price of £7.19 / €8.99.
