Double Fine confirms date for rogue-like RAD

Post-apocalyptic action game set for August

Double Fine will release 3D action rogue-like, RAD on August 20, the developer announced on Monday.

The game, which is set in a post-post-apocalyptic world, where humanity has faced Armageddon “not once, but twice,” will release for PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

Players will take on the role of a teenage protagonist who must venture into the Fallow — an ever-changing, radioactive wasteland filled with unknown creatures. It’s here that they’ll find the solution to heal the world and transform the barren landscape.

Rad is published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.

“We’re almost at the home stretch and I couldn’t be more excited for everyone to jump into what we’ve built with RAD,” said Lee Petty, project lead at Double Fine Productions.

“One of the best parts of developing RAD has been getting early feedback from the community with the Closed Beta. I want our fans and future players to know that they’re being heard and we’re going to bring an experience they’ll want to keep going back to.”
