Should you be looking to get a new motorsport fix then Overpass on Xbox One, PS4 and PC may well provide it. Just don’t expect to be found harnessing the power of speed.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Overpass is the latest off-road motorsport experience to arrive on console and PC, allowing us to become one with nature and prove we have the driving skills to take down all-comers.
Overpass does away with the need to go fast, instead attempting to harness precision racing as you tip-toe your way across a multitude of obstacle courses and hill climbs in a variety of ATV and UTV off-road beasts. With licensed manufacturers in place, plenty of upgrades to purchase, and some serious tests of skill included in the events, Overpass could well be the off-road racer’s dream.
Our full review of Overpass on Xbox One will however tell you what is what and whether or not we feel that Overpass is a worthy purchase. Quick spoiler, the asking price for Overpass certainly knocks things down a little and the £49.99 being asked for the Standard Edition of the game from the Xbox Store is pretty steep. And that’s without mentioning the £58.49 Deluxe Edition which includes a number of additional packs. These add-ons brings Expert Vehicles (also available for £5.79 individually), a Smart Start Pack which brings additional sponsors and repair kits (£2.49 if you wish to buy it seperately), and the Drive With Style Pack (£2.49) which provides further liveries.
If you wish to give it a shot though and reckon that getting behind some of the most powerful UTV and ATVs in gaming then the option is there to do so. Let us know what you think of it all though – the comments section is down below. As is the launch trailer.
In OVERPASS™, the scree slopes, steep inclines, tree trunks and bogs present as much of an obstacle to victory as other drivers. At the controls of powerful buggies and quads from major manufacturers, such as Yamaha, Polaris, Arctic Cat and Suzuki, venture off into extreme off-road environments and challenge yourself on the game’s highly technical tracks. Cope with vehicle damage, and negotiate the many natural and artificial obstacles in your way to achieve the best time possible. Pure speed is not the name of the game; you’ll need to master the realistic terrain physics and unique characteristics of the game’s vehicles. Carefully select your UTV or ATV, plot your route intelligently, and manage your acceleration and the various differential and drivetrain options to dominate in local and online competitions.
