Porto Alegre – 28th of November, 2018. Aquiris’ acclaimed arcade retroracer releases today on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One debuting new features: custom paint jobs for all 32 cars, including 6 exclusive car skins on each platform, a new car and a brand new game mode called Playground.
Playground is a rotative competition that present 5 new races each time. They are time-limited tracks that will always bring something special to the table: Time Attack races with no opponents, changes in weather and time of day, mirrored races, infinite nitrous, restrictions on which cars competitors can use.
Expect to see sandstorms in Iceland, volcanoes in California and new rules! You never know what the next season will feature.
Races come in one of 5 difficulty levels, meaning there's something for every type of Horizon Chase player. Each race presents two levels of challenge for Playgrounders to take on: beating the computer opponents may be a challenge in itself, but you can always take it up a notch and fight to climb the leaderboards. Each race has its own leaderboard, Global and Friends-only, that stay online only for the duration of a season.
In Playground mode, each season brings a new set of surprises and a new place to compete.
Besides the new Playground mode, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch players will be able to choose between several custom colors for each car, including 6 exclusive skins in each platform. The new version also comes with a brand new car carrying its weight in bragging rights.
Horizon Chase Turbo is a homage to classic 16-bit racers that defined a generation of high-speed and frenetic arcade fun like Out Run and Top Gear. The game is conceived to ignite an instant blast of nostalgia with catchy contemporary music composed by the legendary Barry Leitch (who also created the soundtracks for the Top Gear, Lotus, and Rush series), while also offering split-screen multiplayer and mixing retro low-poly aesthetics with modern gameplay.
