Zordix Racing’s Overpass was first revealed earlier this year. Now, with Gamescom 2019 currently underway, some new details and new footage has been released.
Overpass is going to feature an array of off-roading buggies and quads from a variety of manufacturers: namely brands like Suzuki, Polaris, and Yamaha, just to name a new. Players will need to guide these mean machines through treacherous courses that are packed with tough, uneven terrain. Don’t forget some of the serious inclines that will also slow you down if you’re not careful. This will be exacerbated by the game’s “advanced physics” engine, as players tackle different terrain types like mud, sand, and rocks.
There will be a variety of different game modes to boot, including local and online multiplayer.
Here’s the new gameplay trailer:
Overpass will charge its way onto Switch and other platforms in February 2020.
Here’s the full press release:
Lesquin, France, August 20, 2019 – More has been unveiled today about Overpass™, the new off-road simulation developed by Zordix Racing and published by Bigben. A new video highlights the game’s unique and innovative concept, which fans of motorsports and extreme driving will love.
At the controls of 25 buggies and quads from big-name manufacturers (Arctic Cat, Yamaha, Polaris and Suzuki), players will need to negotiate scree slopes, steep inclines and various obstacles on extreme off-road and technically challenging tracks.
With 40 routes in varied terrain and environments, a new challenge can be found in each race. Whether it involves hillclimbing or rock-crawling, the aim is to complete the race in the best time possible.
The realistic and technical level design, combined with the advanced physics engine, makes for an even greater challenge: mud, sand, rocks, natural and man-made obstacles… every type of terrain offers a unique test. Players must choose the vehicle best suited to the selected track, adapt their driving style and understand that speed is not always the answer. From expert control of acceleration, wise use of the transmission and differentials, and knowing when to shift from two- to four-wheel drive, there are many options to master on the road to off-road victory.
There are multiple game modes in Overpass™ : Career, Quick Race, Local Multiplayer (split screen and hotseat) and Online Multiplayer with up to eight players.
Overpass™ is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch™ in February 2020.
Bigben, a leading publisher of video games on PC and consoles, is known for its creativity and innovation. After its acquisition of four development studios (Cyanide, Eko, KT Racing and Spiders), which are all internationally recognised for their expertise in different genres, Bigben is strengthening its position as a developer and publisher of premium games and is aiming to become the world’s leading AA publisher. www.bigben.fr
