The 16-bit inspired arcade racer is currently 30% off on the Steam store.
Horizon Chase Turbo is a standalone homage to classic 16-bit racers that defined a generation of high-speed, frenetic arcade fun. The game ignites an instant blast of nostalgia with catchy contemporary chiptune music, split screen multiplayer and retro design with modern gameplay. Although there’s a deep and extensive single-player mode, Horizon Chase Turbo uses split-screen multiplayer modes to create a magical local multiplayer experience. Launch date features for Horizon Chase Turbo will include a world tour campaign, intense tournaments, endurance challenges and more than 31 vehicles across 109 tracks, spanning real-world locations, such as China, Japan, Hawaii and more.
Aquiris Studio Game Designer, Felipe Dal Molin said:
“We created Horizon Chase Turbo to be the racing game we wanted to play, hitting the sweet spot between true-to-life simulators and chaotic, explosive kart racers. With Horizon Chase Turbo, we want players to feel the nostalgic tension of the simple tug-of-war of a tight turn; where players are run off-road for a split second only to return to intense high-speed action as they overtake and battle against friends playing together on the couch or via the online ghost mode.”
All game modes in Horizon Chase Turbo, including the World Tour campaign, tournament and endurance challenges support local split screen multiplayer up to four players. Racers can compete in head-to-head races one at a time, or spend hours racing around the globe collecting coins to achieve the common goal of unlocking exotic vehicles and spinetingling tracks.
The demo of Horizon Chase Turbo is available now on Steam and PS4. The demo offers eight circuits, three cars and two game modes, whilst allowing split screen multiplayer for up to four players. There’s also a 30% discount on the full game on Steam, priced at £10.84 / $13.99 / €11.75.
