About

Onrush marks a triumphant return for action packed, arcade-style racing. A celebration of sensational speed, outright fun and over the top spectacle Onrush makes sure that you are always in the thick of the action as you race, smash and boost your way to victory.

A racing game without a finish line, driving with style and flair is what counts as you perform incredible takedowns and put everything on the line in order to power up your all important RUSH bar. Once activated RUSH is the ultimate manifestation of boost and power that will see you wreak havoc on your opponents as you perform death defying stunts leaving carnage in your wake.

Key Features

  • Rush, the ultimate racing power up that allows you to cause complete carnage and take control of the race. Each vehicle class has different RUSH abilities.
  • ‘Stampede’ ensures that you are always in the fight. If you find yourself too far from the pack, Stampede will throw you back into the heart of the action.
  • Eight vehicle classes, each with unique abilities and with hundreds of unique customisations.
  • Four race modes: Overdrive, Switch, Lockdown & Countdown.
    • Overdrive: Earn boost however you can and then release it to help your team hit the target score first.
