Horizon Chase Turbo receives the long anticipated Playground Mode and other features in a huge update on PlayStation 4
Modern retro-styled arcade racer Horizon Chase Turbo has been collecting prizes and recognition since it was first released, back in May 2018. Now, being the second highest rated racing game released in 2018 for PS4 according to Metacritic, Aquiris is proud to have its racing title recognised by Sony and taking part in the PlayStation Essentials Sale that starts today (only in the Americas) and lasts until 5th of February. During this campaign, the game will be sold at its maximum discount so far: 25% off for all players, and a whopping 35% off only for PS+ members.
To celebrate this recognition of being part of the PlayStation Essentials Sale, Horizon Chase Turbo is receiving the most expected update to date, including:
- The new Playground Mode.
- Exclusive car skins.
- New colors.
- New “cable guy” car.
Playground is a rotative competition that present 5 new races each time. They are time-limited tracks that will always bring something special to the table: Time Attack races with no opponents, changes in weather and time of day, mirrored races, infinite nitros, restrictions on which cars competitors can use. Expect to see sandstorms in Iceland, volcanoes in California and new rules! You never know what the next season will feature.
Races come in one of 5 difficulty levels, meaning there’s something for every type of Horizon Chase player. Each race presents two levels of challenge for Playgrounders to take on: beating the computer opponents may be a challenge in itself, but you can always take it up a notch and fight to climb the leaderboards. Each race has its own leaderboard, Global and Friends-only, that stay online only for the duration of a season.
In Playground mode, each season brings a new set of surprises and a new place to compete every two weeks.
