For all of our Apple Arcaders, the wide world of Horizon Chase 2 now takes us on a tour of Japan in the latest update, highlighted by Dream – a brand-new original car.
Dream is equipped with three epic bodies and can be customized in six stunning paint jobs. Earn the unique vehicle by completing the entire Japan circuit of races.
Aquiris Game Studio announced the new location on 8th December 2022, which is now available for fans of the hit mobile racing game. Experience the beautiful streets of Japan all at you fingertips with nine fresh tracks through high-tech cities, mystic dojos, gorgeous gardens and enchanted forests.
As part of the World Tour campaign, the DLC includes 11 recently developed races comprised of two types: nine regular and two break the boxes races. If you’re unsure what type of race that is, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Boxes will litter the track, and you must break them.
Easy peasy, right?
Taking a deeper dive into the stunning circuits, three have been inspired by actual locations in Japan.
Starting with Akihabara, a district in Tokyo that is famously known for its otaku (diehard fan) culture and endless electronics shops. Arakurayama Sengen Park is a traditional look at temple architecture, contrasted by the majestic Mount Fuji.
Lastly, Lake Mashū boasts the newly improved dynamic weather now achievable within the game. Situated in Akan Mashū National Park, the beautiful body of water is an endorheic crater lake nestled within a caldera of what may even be an active volcano.
