Not much gameplay was shown, but according to early impressions, it’s heavily physics-based. Players need to carefully turn their bikes for perfect flips and badass jumps. Each level is packed with multiple paths to explore, so it feels like three levels are packed in one. Swerve through bustling subways, or go across rooftops. It depends on which path you take.
