Atari confirms the Tempest 4000 release date for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

It’s really difficult to like Atari these days, but it’s never ever difficult to like Jeff Minter, nor his ongoing stream of synesthesia video games.

The publisher has today announced the release date for the legendary game designer’s latest opus, a new entry in the iconic and influential Tempest series.

Tempest 4000

Tempest 4000 sees the return of the Claw spacecraft on new mission to shoot things and create beautiful neon chaos. The action will, of course, be backed by a ’90s style, adrenaline-pumping techno soundtrack.

Tempest 4000 features three modes – Classic, Pure and Survival – plus one hundred unique geometric levels. It will also include global online leaderboards, and supports 4K resolution on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

In the US Tempest 4000 will be priced at $29.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and $19.99 on Windows PC via Steam.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
