Horizon Chase celebrates its origins with the Devs’ Hometown Update, available today on all home consoles and mobile devices. After completing a long and joyful World Tour, the race reaches the lovely city of Porto Alegre, the developers hometown.
In this special celebration, the Free Update includes 2 new tracks which take place in the city of Porto Alegre and 1 additional car, Minuano, with 6 skins. In Horizon Chase Turbo, all skins will be available at launch, while Horizon Chase World Tour will gradually receive them in future updates.
Minuano, a Genuine Brazilian Car
The new car, Minuano, is inspired by a nostalgic model designed and produced in Porto Alegre in the ’80s. Furthermore, the Update offers two additional tracks: Guaíba Sunset and Nightfall in Porto Alegre, full of references to real landmarks of our hometown.
“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our hometown to the millions of Horizon Chase players. The game concept is to race in some of the most iconic cities in the World, presenting beautiful horizons and genuine aspects to each one of them. So, thinking about the landmarks and choosing what could be the most authentic aspects of our hometown was really fun to do. And the new soundtrack is the best final touch we could do to this Update. We hope you all enjoy it as much as we did”, Sandro Manfredini, Business Director at AQUIRIS.
Devs Hometown is a Free Update available to download right now on Horizon Chase Turbo (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam) and Horizon Chase World Tour (Android/iOS). It is the first time in the history of the franchise that such an important Update is made available at the same time for both home consoles and mobile devices.
“The chorus of the song ‘Deu Pra Ti,’ from the local musicians Kleiton and Kledir, is catchy and full of magic. For the people who live here, it is like a non-official Porto Alegre anthem. Having Barry Leitch adding arpeggios and chords on it made us feel a mix of remarkable past and present feelings.“, says Israel Mendes, Marketing Director at AQUIRIS.
