Horizon Chase Turbo Peels Out

Aquiris Game Studio announces the release of Horizon Chase Turbo for PlayStation 4 and PC, with the Windows, Linux, and macOS editions of the throwback racer available on Steam. The launch trailer shows off gameplay and hypes the return of "couch multiplayer." Here's word:

Rev up your engines and make room on your couch as nostalgic high-octane arcade racer Horizon Chase Turbo releases today, offering the quintessential combination of retro racing and modern multiplayer matchups. Horizon Chase Turbo is available now for digital download at the PlayStation®Store and on Steam for $19.99 and is rated E for Everyone (ESRB).

Horizon Chase Turbo is standalone homage to classic 16-bit racing games that defined a generation of high-speed, frenetic arcade fun. The simple and tight controls paired with precision gameplay and detailed depth combine for a nostalgic experience for racing, arcade, retro and multiplayer fans young and old. Horizon Chase Turbo’s head-to-head split screen multiplayer and catchy contemporary chiptune-style music add to the game’s painterly aesthetic and competitive action.

“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,” said Aquiris Studio Game Designer, Felipe Dal Molin. “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.”

Aside from the modernly retro graphics, the split-screen couch multiplayer modes are among Turbo’s most defining features. All game modes, 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.

Turbo’s classic arcade gameplay and simple mechanics make the game easy to pick up and play for both casual and hardcore gamers. The simple and intuitive controls require the use of only three buttons. The game’s straightforward objectives, but in-depth learning curve, appeal to gamers who enjoy racing, but do not have the time to put in the hours to learn the complex systems required of the latest racing simulator.
