Remember how it wasn’t always about ‘going fast’ when Overpass launched back in 2020? Remember how the off-road racing scene was given a shot in the arm by the precision motorsport brawling it delivered? It’s time to get climbing again as Overpass 2 has been announced – and this one will be powered by Unreal Engine 5. 

From Nacon and Neopica Studio, Overpass 2 is the second game in the off-road racing franchise as the development teams look to build on the success of the original game with new ideas, new tracks, new vehicles and more.

It’ll be coming to Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC come October 19th 2023, as players get to jump behind the wheel of a host of vehicles, before competing in races and trying to set the best time on extreme tracks behind the wheel of powerful and officially licensed ATVs and UTVs.

Developed in Unreal Engine 5, Overpass 2 should not just look great but it will come with a wide variety of content with 37 vehicles in 3 different categories, 5 environments, 31 circuits and multiple race modes, including a much deeper career mode. It’ll be up to you to dictate the power of these vehicles, skilfully navigating the track to overcome obstacles and win competitions.

“Overpass 2 is a unique game, and we are delighted to be bringing a new game out for fans of racing and off-roading. We are working hard to recreate the terrain physics, vehicle behaviour and the authentic sensations of this very technical sport” said Peter Vermeulen, Managing Director at Neopica.

“Overpass introduced this demanding sport to fans of off-roading and motorsports in general. The game was very challenging to play, and we really wanted to go even further with the concept. This is what we have done with Overpass 2, which includes more content and improved physics thanks to the Unreal 5 engine” said Alain Falc, CEO of NACON.

Grab the trailer below and let us know what you remember of the original Overpass by dropping into the comments. Overpass 2 will release on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC on October 19th 2023.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
