The fantastic throwback arcade racer Slipstream, which is heavily inspired by OutRun, will be getting a native PS5 upgrade and a free expansion across all systems to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The new content is named Blue Hour, and will include two game modes, three cars, and five courses for all existing owners at no extra cost. It’s due out this summer.
“The blue hour is a brief period of the day, after the sunset but before the night, when the sky takes on a deep blue tone,” explained developer Sandro de Paula. “It's long been appreciated by painters and photographers because of the beautiful and unique properties of light during this time. The fading light from the sun illuminates everything softly, and the deep blue sky creates a great contrast with the usually yellow-ish urban lamps. It's a moment of natural beauty that happens every day. And as times of the day have always been a theme in Slipstream, in this expansion I joined forces with Effoharkay and took the opportunity to explore it a little more.”
