Lesquin, France, August 20, 2019 – More has been unveiled today about Overpass™, the new off-road simulation developed by Zordix Racing and published by Bigben. A new video highlights the game's unique and innovative concept, which fans of motorsports and extreme driving will love.

At the controls of 25 buggies and quads from big-name manufacturers (Arctic Cat, Yamaha, Polaris and Suzuki), players will need to negotiate scree slopes, steep inclines and various obstacles on extreme off-road and technically challenging tracks.

With 40 routes in varied terrain and environments, a new challenge can be found in each race. Whether it involves hillclimbing or rock-crawling, the aim is to complete the race in the best time possible.

 

The realistic and technical level design, combined with the advanced physics engine, makes for an even greater challenge: mud, sand, rocks, natural and man-made obstacles... every type of terrain offers a unique test. Players must choose the vehicle best suited to the selected track, adapt their driving style and understand that speed is not always the answer. From expert control of acceleration, wise use of the transmission and differentials, and knowing when to shift from two- to four-wheel drive, there are many options to master on the road to off-road victory.

There are multiple game modes in Overpass™ : Career, Quick Race, Local Multiplayer (split screen and hotseat) and Online Multiplayer with up to eight players.

Overpass™ is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch™ in February 2020.
