'Pacer' (ALL) Launches For PS4 And PC, Delayed On Xbox One Due To Bug

Pacer is a pulse-raising future generation anti-gravity racer that mixes high octane speed with fully-customizable craft, allowing players to tweak until they’ve outfitted the perfect winning killing machine to complement their skills.

Pacer is an explosive high-octane, anti-gravity combat racing game where players can race in a variety of single player modes or with up to 10 players via online multiplayer. 

2075: The Pacer World Championship has become the new apex of anti-gravity motorsport, delivering high-speed racing across the world’s most dangerous and challenging circuits. Corporations from all over the globe race against each other in a battle of technical and piloting prowess with the aim of winning the championship and achieving ultimate victory.

Engage in high speed combat racing to an incredible soundtrack, featuring original tracks by CoLD SToRAGE, and an extensive licensed library including Dub FX, Ed Harrison and many more.

“We’re thrilled to be here today to launch the fastest and most explosive game of its kind. I’m so proud of what the team has achieved, and we’ll be enjoying a social distanced launch drink to mark the occasion,” said Steve Iles, Senior Producer, PACER. “But this is just the beginning, we have a lot of plans for the competitive gaming side of PACER so watch this space. 

While Pacer was delayed earlier this year so R8 Games could launch the game across all platforms, it's only available on PS4 and PC.

We reached out to the developer to ask if a new date had been set, and a representative of R8 Games provided this statement:

“As  Pacer is ready to launch on PS4 and PC, we have discovered one bug in our Xbox One version of the game which means it cannot launch with the other versions. We are already working on a fix and are confident we will be able to get this version live in the next couple of weeks. We apologize to those who are waiting for the Xbox One version, we will get this to you as soon as we possibly can."

Key Features:

  • Race the world – with 14 unique and challenging tracks with interchangeable variants (Night, Mirrored, Reverse) giving up to 8 different ways to race any given circuit
  • Choose your mode – with 8 game modes including Elimination, Endurance and PACER’s unique ‘Flowmentum’ and Battle Royale inspired ‘Storm’ modes. 
  • Campaign mode – develop from a trainee Pilot and advance through 10 unique race teams to become the PACER world champion. 
  • OST – featuring original tracks created by Tim Wright aka CoLD SToRAGE 
  • Optimised for Online – with 10 player multiplayer, Online Ranked Mode to see how you compete against the best in the world and Online Tournament/Spectator Mode for easy streaming and fun events at all levels

Pacer is currently available for PS4 and PC, coming to Xbox One shortly.
