Ridge Racer Type 4 heading to PlayStation Plus Premium

One of the all-time greatest arcade racing video games from the original PlayStation is headed to the subscription service later this month.






Archetypal arcade driving game Ridge Racer Type 4 is heading to modern PlayStation consoles for those with a PlayStation Plus Premium subscription.

Originally launched on the first PlayStation in 1998, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, as it was called in some markets, set the template for a slick, drift-heavy, racing experience – following on from the series’ Japanese arcade cupboard lineage.

Namco’s classic introduced groups and featured a drop-dead attractive opening CGI intro, which I even have distinct reminiscences of seeing for the primary time enjoying on a demo unit in a retail retailer.

The addition follows its publisher’s determination to resume Ridge Racer trademarks in 2021 and the discharge of the PlayStation Portable Ridge Racer 2 for the subscription service in December 2022.
