Pumped BMX+ Landing on Consoles and PC Starting September 18th
Big-Screen Follow-up to Acclaimed Mobile BMX Series to Make Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U and PC Debut
LONDON – September 10, 2015 – Indie developer YEAHUS, in conjunction with Curve Digital, the world’s largest publisher of indie games on console, today announced that Pumped BMX+ will hit digital storefronts worldwide on Xbox One and PC on September 18, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 3 on September 22, and on Wii U on September 24. Pumped BMX+ takes everything that made the original series so well-loved and brings it up to date for the console generation.
Pumped BMX+ is the latest in the series that has captivated both the BMX and gaming communities alike. The original games first appeared on iPhone and Android to considerable success, hitting the number one spot in over 20 countries and being downloaded millions of times.
Like its inspiration, Pumped BMX+ boats 50 heart-in-mouth courses, a comprehensive collection of authentic tricks, and 500 in-game challenges, but the console and PC debut comes with completely redesigned control system which makes pulling off epic rides a real pleasure. In addition, every visual aspect of the game has been enhanced with completely new art and animations, as well as a fully-licensed soundtrack from up-and-coming artists to complete the package. Players will also have access to online leaderboards, enabling them to brag to their friends, and completing the game’s many achievements will provide a test for the very best virtual BMXers.
“I began designing the original game in between jobs – and the fact it’s become such a global success is still unbelievable,” says Adam Hunt, Founder of YEAHUS. “I wrote the game purely because, as a keen BMXer myself, the one I wanted to play didn’t exist. I can’t quite believe it’ll soon be sitting alongside the likes of FIFA, Grand Theft Auto and Metal Gear Solid – it’s quite surreal.”
“The reaction we’ve been seeing to Pumped BMX+ when we’ve shown it to the public is really exciting,” adds Jason Perkins, Managing Director of Curve Digital. “The game’s heritage is without question – and we’re excited to be involved in bringing the franchise to console and PC audiences.”
Pumped BMX+ will hit digital storefronts worldwide on Xbox One and PC on September 18, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 3 on September 22, and on Wii U on September 24, and will retail for $9.99, €9.99, and £7.99. 20 percent launch discounts will be available for the first two weeks post-launch.
