For a more complete rundown, see the summary below:
Barrel Barrage Mode
Take Hotshot Racing’s trademark breakneck speed and add explosive barrels to the mix. Launched from the rear of each vehicle, barrels explode on contact with competitors’ cars, inflicting damage and making each dash for the chequered flag more perilous.
Boss Level Grand Prix
Expand the roster of championships in Hotshot Racing with the Boss Level Grand Prix including four new high-speed circuits – 8 Ball Highway, Cargo Chaos, Frozen Freeway and Surf City – each with visually arresting vistas to zip past. All game modes, including Barrel Barrage, are available across all tracks introduced in the Boss Level Grand Prix
Since launch, Sumo Digital Nottingham and Lucky Mountain Games have pulled out all the stops, addressed fan feedback and kept the game up-to-date with constant patches across all platforms. This includes increased car speed across Normal, Hard and Expert modes, improved multiplayer lobby functionality, controller detection fixes for the PC version of the game and more.
Hotshot Racing is currently available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, priced at USD19.99, with the arcade racer also available as part of Xbox Game Pass.
