Indie publisher BlitWorks and Brazilian developer Ansdor are celebrating the fifth anniversary of their Outrun-inspired arcade racer Slipstream with a brand new expansion, as well as a current-gen upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S – both of which will be free upon release. The new expansion, titled “Blue Hour”, will add two game modes, three cars, five tracks, and five music tracks.

Each new racetrack is based on a real location across Europe, including, Marseille, Pompeii, Transylvania, Granada, and Edinburgh. As for the current-gen upgrade, it will feature several changes such as a new fog system and dynamic lighting system. The Blue Hour content is also jumping from a 16-bit to 32-bit art style.

Slipstream is currently available on Xbox, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, while the Blue Hour expansion and console upgrade are due out later this summer. Check out a brand new trailer below:
