Hotshot Racing is being added to Xbox Game Pass on September 10th.

The trio of Lucky Mountain Games, Sumo Nottingham, and Curve Digital are letting loose this smashing arcade racer after weeks of Closed PC and Xbox Insider beta testing, when the game also drops for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on the same day.

The Game Pass announcement came as quite the surprise, and dropped well ahead of any confirmation from the usually upfront Xbox Game Pass twitter feed.

It also makes a world of sense, given the multiplayer focus of its launch trailer, and the need for a healthy online player base.

Cross platform play has not been confirmed, so we’ll be following up with the dev team on that at a later date.

Also, this game really is fantastic. Seriously. Check out my hands on preview, published exclusively on AltChar.com.

Hotshot Racing launches on September 10th, for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Game Pass.



At the bottom of some of our articles, you’ll see a series of absurd looking images (with equally stupid, in joke laden names). These are the TARP badges, which represent our ‘Totally Accurate Rating Platform’. They allow us to identify specific things, recognise positive or negative aspects of a games design, and generally indulge our consistent silliness with some visual tomfoolery.  

WORTH IT?

AND

YEAH!
Hotshot Racing is one of the best arcade racers we’ve played for years.

It gets multiplayer support absolutely spot on, with a variety of modes and options.
