Players will race across the dystopian landscape in the hope of reaching the mysterious Citadel where world-changing secrets await discovery.

In this modernised shoot-‘em-up experience, players must take the most perilous routes and fulfil high-stakes delivery missions to ensure the safe arrival of precious cargo – only the most skilled Gearshifters will survive!
