“Precision drifts, jumps and water zones"
The unique gameplay defined as "precision drifting" will suit every player looking for technical and precise controls combined with the immediate fun and ease of an arcade game.
“Wide and technical tracks"
Natural environments are enriched and reimagined to create technical racetracks mixing multi-paths water zones and jumps. Inspired by retro arcade rally games the wide surfaces let the player enjoy long powerslides.
“New boost system"
Players can master different techniques for overtaking and exiting a corner thanks to the combination of several boost systems which set the game appart from usual rally games.
“The most addictive racing gameplay"
The vehicle dynamics is based on realistic physics tweaked to enhance the player's drifting ability. The result makes the handling extremely natural, smooth and precise for the most rewarding driving experience.
“Unlock futuristic race cars"
In addition to the arcade and championship mode, a challenge mode will let the player unlock the futuristic racing cars exclusively designed by Anthony Jannarelly.
