Start the meter and hold on tight for the ride of your life as there’s a new title looking to recreate the cabbie carnage of classics like Crazy Taxi and The Simpsons Road Rage. Here comes Taxi Chaos, looking to pick up new passengers on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch right now!
Lion Castle and Team6 Game Studios have teamed up to deliver Taxi Chaos, a real throwback that’s inspired by the aforementioned games most of us were probably addicted to at one stage. It’s a modern take on the taxi experiences of yesteryear, with wannabe cabbies cruising the streets of New Yellow City for fares in order to bring in the dosh for either Vinnie or Cleo – the main protagonists. Speed is of the essence, hence you must rush to pick customers up and arrive at their chosen destination as fast as possible.
There are three modes on offer in Taxi Chaos: the classic Arcade Mode, the more chilled out Freeroam, and for those wanting a real test there’s also a Pro Mode. Whichever you settle down to enjoy, you can expect to come into contact with some truly strange characters and have fully voiced conversations – often funny – during the journey. We’re talking about chatting to the likes of a rockstar, an alien, a hipster, and many other interesting folk. As if it’s not distracting enough as you’re attempting to smash through fire hydrants, street lamps and anything else that gets in your way.
“It has been two decades since we saw a new game focused on the adventures and excitement of being a taxi driver. With Taxi Chaos, we set out to create a throw-back dedicated to the amazing and memorable classics”, said Jorden Stocx, Lead Game Designer of Taxi Chaos. “Of course, this is not a direct sequel to the classics, however, we hope that players will welcome Taxi Chaos as a fun and fresh take on this long-lost genre.”
“The enthusiasm and replies all over the world have been overwhelming since the announcement of our title. This has motivated the team to improve the game even more, by adding new music, extra citizens, and tons of other updates in a patch”, said Ronnie Nelis, CEO of Lion Castle. The patch will be available as of day one for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will soon follow for Nintendo Switch in the next few weeks. The full list of updates will be enclosed soon.
While getting behind the wheel of an iconic yellow cab is quite an alluring prospect, if you purchase Taxi Chaos, you could end up driving one of the unlockable vehicles such as a muscle car or Japanese tuner. All you need to do is stop off at the Xbox Store (the PS Store and Nintendo eShop are possible options too) and pay the flat fee of £25.99.
