Welcome to the Pacer World Championship, pilots! Pacer is now available on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One and I couldn’t be more excited for the Xbox community to join the race and experience the thrill (and speed!) of high-octane, anti-gravity combat racing.
The year is 2075. You’re a fresh pilot on the starting grid, ready to take on any and all challengers to make a name for yourself and become the Pacer world champion. With race tracks, visuals, and audio design as intense as the 80+ song list, there’s something for everybody in what I call a love letter to the golden age of AG racing. Pacer takes a classic, high-speed formula and enhances it with a massive amount of features and custom settings to tailor the experience to your own liking.
Want to know what it’s like to race at 1,000km/h? In Pacer, customization and speed is the name of the game. Enter your garage and you’ll discover 5 unique craft to choose from, plus an entire range of skins and accessories to set you apart from other pilots online and off. Dive deeper and you’ll find a large collection of weapons and defenses to equip on your ship that can be further altered with behavioral mods, plus performance mods that change how your craft races, including braking, handling, engine, and (my favorite!) anti-gravity lift.
All of this is going to cost you, though. You’ll earn credits by competing in the campaign, proving your skills online or taking part in one of the 8 race modes, including the unique “Storm” on-track battle royale mode. Choose to race with weapons on or off, set the number of laps, toggle collisions and even create custom music playlists with the in-game soundtrack. With 14 locations to race in (not including reverse, mirrored, day and night variants) and 4 speed classes to choose from (F3000, F2000, F1000 all the way to “Elite” for absolute speed freaks), the personal touch goes far beyond just your craft customization.
Okay, you’ve selected your craft, loadout, race type, speed class and track. Now what? On the track, you’ll do battle with up to 9 other pilots online or offline, where it’s up to you to decide where to use your speed boosts, when to fly over weapon or shield pick-ups, and whether to leave your rivals in the dust – or in flames.
Whether you’re in it for the extreme speed, the high-octane combat, the leaderboard glory or the custom experience, Pacer is a destructive, futuristic racer that has you covered. I can’t wait to see you out on the track, if you can catch me!
