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. Skill-Based racing With the depth of a simulation and the excitement and combat of arcade racers, PACER provides a true test of player skill, reflexes, and strategy. Define The Rules Choose from four speed classes with speeds from 400 km/h to over 1000 km/h, then test your mettle in a variety of game modes including Elimination, Endurance and PACER’s unique ‘Flowmentum’ and ‘Storm’. The single-player Campaign lets you develop from a trainee Pilot, advancing through 10 unique race teams from around the world unlocking rewards and challenging yourself in blisteringly fast races in an effort to become the PACER world champion. Hit The Track Prepare to out-race and out-battle your opponents on 14 unique and challenging tracks complete with interchangeable variants (Night, Mirrored, Reverse) giving up to 8 different ways to race any given circuit. From the flowing red canyons of Fiyah! Fury, to the neon set lights of Mannahatta and the vibrant city of Sonashahar, your reactions will be tested on every twist and turn in high definition 4K. Choose Your Craft Get behind the controls of 5 varied Craft each with their own unique characteristics. The Garage allows you to fully customize your look and tune parameters within the Engine, Braking, Handling, Anti-Gravity and Defence systems. We provide a sophisticated handling model that allows players to fine tune the subtleties of their craft to shave off those extra few seconds. Select Your Arsenal Choose your deadly weaponry and tool up your craft before hitting the track to ensure your victory. Select weapons with a variety of behaviors, tweak how they function: more ammo, more damage, faster firing rates or the ability to target multiple opponents. Race The World Online Multiplayer takes PACER to another level supporting up to 10 players, 7 game modes and VOIP. Play matchmade races via our dedicated servers or create custom lobbies and test your skills in an effort to reach the top spot on our worldwide leaderboards. Spectator Mode allows the player to view any multiplayer event in progress, from any gameplay or trackside cameras. Banging Tunes Create your own playlist from 80+ songs featuring original tracks by CoLD SToRAGE (Tim Wright) created exclusively for PACER and an extensive licensed library from named artists.

Pacer is a magnificent anti-grav racer that's more than capable of filling the Wipeout-sized hole in your life.

Pacer is an adrenaline-fuelled racer with tons of replayability, and plenty of customisation options to make each win count.

Pacer can most definitely give you a rush of nostalgia if you grew up with games of this type. It just doesn’t feel like it has the legs to keep you occupied once that euphoria wears off. It’s hard to tell here at launch, but if a community forms around this game and the online actually has players to play with this could very well be a go to game to get a quick adrenaline fix.

The game doesn't get everything right. Menus and UI are a little clumsy, and you're unlikely to feel attached to any of the teams in the career mode. However, it has it where it counts — fun, speedy racing, lots to do, and a CoLD SToRAGE soundtrack. WipEout fans looking for a new entry: this is as close as you'll find.
