This simulation provides players with several different, particularly hilly environments and terrains. It will take all of your cool-headed and careful driving skills just to reach the finish line. In Overpass, players can't fly through the race by flooring it, but have to find the right speed so they can make their way through the course, get past the obstacles and avoid damaging their vehicles.

The specific technical aspects of each vehicle also have to be taken into account on each track: select the right vehicle from amongst 25 buggies and quads from major manufacturers (Arctic Cat, Yamaha, Polaris and Suzuki), and make sure you use the locking differential and switch from 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive at the right time. The game focuses on providing a unique challenge with innovative gameplay and meticulously-planned level design.

There are several game modes in Overpass: Career mode lets you launch a season, taking part in races to develop your reputation, attract sponsors and try to win competitions. In online Multiplayer mode, which can be played with up to 8 players, you have to demonstrate superb control to finish the race ahead of the others. The experience is rounded out with other game modes, such as Quick Race and Local play (split screen or hotseat) to see if the player can rise to the challenge of the most challenging off-road race.

Overpass™ will be available on PC via the Epic Games Store on February 27, 2020 and on March 17 for the PlayStation 4™ , Xbox One and Nintendo Switch™ platforms.
