Skylanders SuperChargers is an upcoming role-playing platform video game in development by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision. The game is the 5th installment of the Skylanders series, and will introduce vehicles for the first time in the series. For the first time, the series is getting online multiplayer, meaning you will soon be able to join up with your friends for online races.
It works well with the premise of Skylanders Superchargers too. It is the first in the series to introduce playable vehicles of earth, sea and sky varieties, bringing with it a whole new set of Skylanders toys. It seems that the racing mode of the game can be expanded by purchasing Racing Action packs.
These unlock new tracks, but also the villains behind them. If you beat the tracks and defeat the villains, you will be able to play as that villain and drive their vehicle which is perhaps a nod to the Trap Team title. The water-based challenges are also unique, as you will have to switch between swimming on top of the water and below the waves. Your boat often feels like a little cork bouncing on the waves, and you can use that to gain momentum up ramps.
With all of Skylands on the verge of collapse, a special team called the SuperChargers has been assembled to pilot an unstoppable fleet of incredible vehicles. Now you and the SuperChargers must embark on epic adventures over land, under sea, and through the sky to stop Kaos and save Skylands! Skylands is in peril. Kaos has unleashed his most evil weapon yet the Doomstation of Ultimate Doomstruction.
Final Conclusion & Releasing Date
The multiplayer works really well and has specialties that put a real Skylanders twist on the usual track-based challenges. The Skylanders Superchargers is set to be released on September 20, 2015 for PS 3, PS 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U and iOS. The Wii and the Nintendo 3DS version of the game is in development by another Activision subsidiary Beenox.
