“Strider,” the anticipated reboot from Double Helix Games, will release on February 18 for the PSN (PS4 and PS3), and February 19 on XBLA (Xbox One and Xbox 360) and PC. The $14.99 package will feature a main story and Challenge Modes.

One of those challenge modes is Beacon Run. Beacon Run is a race style mode where Strider will have to hit checkpoints while defeating enemies. The goal is to complete this mode as fast as possible. The second mode, Survival Mode, will pit Strider against waves of enemies.

“Strider” will include global online leaderboards for both challenge modes, in addition to Story Mode time results.
