Pacer – originally named Formula Fusion – is a spiritual successor to early games in the Wipeout series, with many developers from Psygnosis Leeds working on the game. Psygnosis Leeds created Wip3out, the series’ BAFTA winning instalment.
Developer R8 Games has also secured the services of Wipeout graphic design house Designers Republic, and series composer Tim Wright (aka CoLD SToRAGE).
At launch, Pacer will feature 14 different tracks and five customisable craft, plus original and licensed tracks from CoLD SToRAGE, Dub FX and more.
