If you’re in the UK, today you’ll find the update of arcade racing classic GTi Club+ is available to download on the PlayStation Network
A classic race against the clock, GTi Club+ recreates the beauty of its French locale within a giant game map that is gradually opened as the player breaks certain records. Boasting 720p graphics and running at 60fps, the game offers five distinctly different licensed cars – Austin Mini Cooper, Renault 5, Fiat A112 Abarth, Lancia Delta and the VW Golf GTi – and invites players to compete via the solo mode or against up to seven other people online.
Using timing, hidden short cuts and handbrake turns, GTi Club+ comes into its own when played online. Three difficulty settings can be selected, adjusting the severity of the course in the process, while a Bomb Tag game sees players attempting to eradicate their rivals in an explosive chase mode. The PlayStation Eye peripheral is also supported, and users can send images to their rivals mid-race, with the best times uploaded to an ever-changing online leaderboard.
Other new elements include a Sat Nav system to help traverse the open nature of the huge courses, dizzying replays, 5.1 sound including a remix of the original coin-op’s music by Atjazz, and player-to-player voice comms. Konami will also make further expansion elements available in the future, including new cars.
While those in the US can grab Soldner-X
Set in the distant future, the game is a fast and furious shoot ‘em up with state-of-the-art graphics, driving soundtrack and classic fun gameplay sprinkled with fresh innovations. In the storyline, planet Earth’s resistance aims to stop a deadly infection consuming both life forms and technology alike, oddly having to rely on an anti-hero mercenary and bounty hunter to pilot a mighty prototype star fighter. His goal: To fight his way to the virus’ origin, save civilization and earn cash to boot!
Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer delivers an addictive classical gameplay combined with high definition graphics in up to 1080p, 2-player co-op mode, online ranking leaderboards and so much more.
For those who’ve downloaded Blast Factor, the game is also updated with Trophy Support – 25 Trophies in total across the original game and the two expansion packs.
