Lesquin, France - 17 May 2023 – NACON and Neopica studio are delighted to announce the development of Overpass 2, the second game in the off-roading racing simulation game that was enthusiastically received by many fans in 2019.
Building on the studio's experience in racing games and feedback from players of the first game, Overpass 2 will offer a more in-depth and improved experience. In the game, drivers compete in races and try to set the best time on extreme tracks behind the wheel of powerful and officially licensed ATVs and UTVs. Developed in Unreal Engine 5, the game has 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. Players must control the vehicles' power and skilfully navigate 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.
Overpass 2 will be available on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on 19 October 2023.
