Ironwood Studios reveals its first title, Pacific Driveas part of the PlayStation State of Play. Pacific Drive is a first person driving survival game, race-based. As a true “road-like”, your car is your only companion. Installed in an abandoned garage, you will have to repair, improve and equip it so that it remains safe from all the dangers that surround you on each excursion in the Zone. Together, you’ll travel deep into the surreal forests of the Pacific Northwest, hunt for long-forgotten mysteries and encounter strange and dangerous anomalies, all while fighting your way deep into the heart of the Olympic Exclusion Zone.
Ironwood Studios was formed in 2019 and brings together industry talent from studios like Sucker Punch Productions, Insomniac Games, Irrational, Klei, 343, Bungie, Activision, and Oculus.
” We love weird science, tales of road trip adventures, and we’ve always been intrigued by the dark, mysterious worlds of games like STALKER or books like Annihilation. In Pacific Drive, we’ve managed to bring these passions together by creating an adventure that takes you deep into the heart of the Pacific Northwest aboard a vintage station wagon that, over time, can become your own sci-fi machine of the 80s substantially modified to improve it, explore it and risk the dangers of the Zone »said Alex Dracott, founder and creative director of Ironwood Studios. “The Ironwood team worked with passion to make this idea a reality. After three years of work, we couldn’t be more excited to share Pacific Drive, and we’re thrilled to be working with PlayStation to make it happen.”
