Paris, France – February 13th, 2020 – Gameloft, leader in the development and publishing of games, is proud to announce Overdrive City is now available on App Store, Google Play, and is coming soon to the Microsoft Store. Overdrive City brings car fans together no matter their mobile device, spanning game genres to provide a fresh take on city-building while delighting car aficionados with licensed brands and racing gameplay. Car enthusiasts become automotive visionaries and celebrate their passion from the factory floor to the fast lane.

Created by Gameloft Montreal, Overdrive City invite players to manufacture cars, fulfill service orders, export shipments, and race their collection to create a car empire. They further immerse themselves into a unique world of automotive showrooms, custom roadways, and other memorabilia. This includes one-of-a-kind branded manufacturing buildings designed for the game in collaboration with each licensed manufacturer.

Auto-enthusiasts can complete the collection of their dreams with over 50 cars from iconic brands including the Porsche 911 GTS, Nissan GT-R Nismo, 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 and many others. Each one can be customized with a 50-layer livery system and custom paint colors and players can put the pedal to the metal in an engaging six-chapter career mode across a variety of exotic locations. With over 1,000 races and top-down racing game-play, players can refine their skills or use auto-drive to complete each race and become a champion. And this is just the beginning, as players will delve further into their automotive journey with future updates to explore new cars, brands, and features.

“Given our established portfolio of renowned car games, we are proud to bring this theme into the city-building genre for a fresh experience,” says Thomas Aurick, VP of Creation at Gameloft. “Our Gameloft Montreal studio is excited to provide an outlet for players looking for new ways to fuel their car passion, and offer a fun way to join Gameloft’s thriving car community.”
