Downforce Hits the Danger Circuit!
Restoration Games announced plans to publish an expansion for Downforce, their critically acclaimed game of high stakes F1 racing, titled Danger Circuit.
The expansion, entitled “Danger Circuit” includes a full-size, six-fold, double-sided board and six new player powers. It features new cover art by returning artist Tavis Coburn, who is also doing the art for the tracks this time around. The “Switchback Pass” track includes “dangerous spaces”, which can only be used to pass other cars. “Crosstown Speedway” presents players with split tracks and crossover “loops”, where trailing cars can block cars in the lead.
Powers include “Defensive”, which lets players move their cars when they wouldn’t move at all, and “Ambitious”, which lets players advance their cars when the cross a betting line.
“From the moment it released, Downforce has been an absolute hit for us. The number one thing the fans kept shouting at us was: ‘More tracks, more powers!’ We heard you,” said Justin D. Jacobson, president of Restoration Games.
Restoration Games has not announced an official street date for the expansion, but plans are to release it in the summer of 2018 at an MSRP of $19.95.
