Determined to make a name for itself in virtually every PC gaming genre, Kiev based development studio, GSC Game World, announces its new futuristic arcade racing game HoveRace. Currently in development, the game is scheduled to be released in early 2002.
An engrossing mix of Star Racer and Death Track, the game is set in 18 different and uniquely designed arenas. Players will have plenty of opportunities to experience high-tension racing, as well as fierce combat. Prepare yourself for the competition by equipping your racing hovercraft with various types of armor, shields, weaponry, and special devices. Attack and defense bonuses, as well as powerups are placed throughout the racing environment.
Unlike other racing games, where one must follow a pre-designated path, HoveRace players have free reign to travel through the arena with no walls to limit them. Players may achieve victory by passing through checkpoints and slow their crafty enemies by destroying them.
A brand new graphics engine, innovative programming, original design elements, and a unique combination of competition and combat makes us hopeful that this title, which will ship in early 2002, will make its mark. It is a one of a kind game that should appeal to lovers of both speed and combat", said Sergiy Grygorovych, Director of GSC Gameworld.
