R8 Games has been working on Pacer (formerly Formula Fusion) for some time, but now the high-speed anti-grav racer is nearing completion. With the game on show at Rezzed over the weekend, we caught up with designer Carlton Gaunt who talked us through the main features.

"Pacer is an anti-gravity combat racer for up to ten players, and it aims to evoke a lot of the old-school anti-grav racing feel of having really high speeds, of having really heavy ships, of being very skill-based racing.

"So we have five craft, we have fourteen tracks, and we have a full garage mode in place as well so you can customise how your craft flies. So its acceleration, turning, braking, even how it hovers in anti-grav, can all be customised in our garage system. So you can create almost a spaceship really that is your style of play, your way to race."

Gaunt also explains how the game's card system works to enhance your ride, and then talks us through the campaign and multiplayer modes. Pacer is heading to PC, PS4, and Xbox One (with 4K/60FPS on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X), hopefully around the end of June. Check out the full interview below.
