'Pacer' (ALL) Gets Slightly Delayed

by Rainier on Sept. 15, 2020 @ 9:26 a.m. PDT

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.

Originally scheduled for launch on September 17, 2020, Pacer is getting delayed until later this month so the game can launch on all platforms simultaneously.

“Development on Pacer for PC, PS4, and Xbox One (with PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements) is complete!

However, whilst the Steam version of PACER is ready and revving to go, both the Xbox One and PS4 versions are currently into final submission with our final Gold candidates and therefore will regrettably miss the originally planned September 17th release date.

It is important to us that everyone gets to play PACER at the same time on PC and consoles therefore, please look forward to the simultaneous platform release before the end of September.”

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 coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in September 2020.
