Another WipEout-looking futuristic racer is coming next month


It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Pacer, but it seems like it’s on track to release next month.

In case you missed the initial announcement, Pacer is one of a long line of futuristic racers that is carrying on the legacy of games like WipEout and F-Zero. Developed by R8 Games, Pacer will allow for solo play, as well as support online matches for up to 10 players.

It’s set in 2075 where anti-gravity motorsports are king, and will feature tracks from CoLD SToRAGE as well as a number of other electronica artists. Five vehicles are in, with customization options for each, alongside of 14 tracks with classic variants like night, mirror and reverse tracks. It’ll also boast eight modes, including a “battle royale inspired” gametype, as well as a campaign.

It all sounds good on paper! Hopefully the physics are on point and it’s fun to play. Pacer is out on September 17 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
