Hey Hey hey it’s time to make some Craaazzzyy money are ya ready….
Taxi Chaos looks so familiar I can’t stop hearing The Offspring in my head, every time I see it, so if you’re looking for a return to those Crazy Taxi days, the forthcoming Taxi Chaos from Team6 Game Studios is due for release in February.
Promising a “fresh and modern take” on classic taxi games, you’ll be able to earn big fares by dashing through traffic-filled streets inspired by New York, with plenty of shortcuts and wild jumps to help push your fares and your customer’s stomachs’ through the roof.
There’ll also be a range of unlockable rides with their own unique style and attributes, from strong muscle cars, Japanese tuners and super-fast exotic supercars.
Due for release on February 23rd 2021, Taxi Chaos will launch on Xbox One as well as PS4 & Switch, while there’s no news on price or potential Series X|S optimizations, I’m sure we’ll hear more in the new year.
Taxi Chaos certainly looks the part, with bright, colourful streets, but we’re witholding judgement until we know more. Clearly inspired by one of the greatest arcade games from the late 90’s, there’s currently only 2 drivers to choose from and parts of the trailer aren’t looking as crisp or detailed as we would like to see, so Taxi Chaos is going to need top-tier gameplay, some serious depth and a rocking soundtrack to be considered worthy enough to sit alongside a game franchise like Crazy Taxi that many remember so fondly.
Here’s the full press release:
|Beaverton, Ore. – December 17, 2020 – Pedestrians and tourists take cover because the streets are about to get even more reckless when Lion Castle’s and GS2 Games’ Taxi Chaos hits the PlayStation 4™, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™ on February 23, 2021.|
Taxi Chaos is a fresh and modern take on classic taxi games where drivers can earn big fares by successfully picking up and dropping off customers at the destination of their choice. Rush around town to pick up the craziest of customers and deliver them on time as fast as you can.
Players can get behind the wheel of a wide range of unlockable rides, each with its own different attributes. Power through midtown in the strong muscle car, race through the West Side Highway in the superfast exotic supercar and drift around Wall Street in the Japanese tuner. Additional vehicles will become available as players progress through the game.
Would-be cabbies will be able to explore a colorful and vast city with many New York-inspired locations, discover shortcuts, drift through corners, take impossible jumps, and aggressively bash their way through traffic, all while getting paid to do it! Passengers won’t mind if you trade paint with other cars since they’re a little crazy themselves. Players can look forward to giving a ride to hipsters, plumbers, rock stars, and even aliens without worrying about getting a poor rating in a ride-sharing app.
Taxi Mayhem is coming to the PlayStation 4™, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch™ on February 23, 2021 – both digital and at retail. For more information, visit the game website at https://taxi-chaos.com/
