The Best Racing Games for PS4, Switch and Xbox One

Racing games can be a great way to chill out and have fun.

Whether you’re looking for a way to socialize with friends, experience new things, or improve your hand-eye coordination, racing games can provide that in spades. Racing games can be an excellent choice if you’re looking for something new and exciting but don’t have time to dedicate yourself to another full-blown role-playing game (RPG).

Forza Horizon 4

Forza Horizon 4 is the latest in the Forza Horizon series of racing games. It is set in a fictional representation of the United Kingdom, which allows for an open-world environment that you can explore at your leisure. There are over 450 cars available for you to purchase and drive within this game and 12 locations that you can explore, including Bath, Edinburgh, and even the Peak District (which is one of my favorite places!).

Forza Horizon 4 also has a single-player campaign where you race against AI opponents to earn points that unlock new vehicles or new events. You can also play with friends online in multiplayer mode or join them on their shared world experience (so long as they’re hosting).

The game features over 200 cars from more than 40 vehicle manufacturers, including Ford, Citroën, Subaru, and Hyundai, and several classic cars from the 1960s through 1990s like the Lancia Fulvia HF Integrale Evoluzione Group B rally car or the Audi Quattro S1 Group B rally car.

The game has four championships consisting of 60 stages set across Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and Wales (United Kingdom). In addition, there are also special stages that you can play at any time during single-player mode: Greece Trail (Greece), Winter Trails (Sweden) & Dirtbox Hill Climb (United States).

F1 2018 is a racing game developed by Codemasters and published by Deep Silver, released on 24th August 2018. This is the official video game of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship season, with all 21 circuits from the season available to race on. F1 2018 features all 20 drivers and ten teams competing in the season and all of their respective cars. It also includes 100 new R&D upgrades that you can apply across your entire garage.

F1 2017 featured over 50 hours of gameplay, but F1 2018 has more than doubled that number with over 100 hours of gameplay! As well as adding more content to your racing experience throughout each night before sleeping so you wake up ready for work or school tomorrow morning (or whenever you play games), F1 has also included engineer voiceovers: which means that if something goes wrong during one of our races, then someone from Mercedes will tell us what’s going wrong. Hence, we know what needs fixing immediately before continuing our journey around Europe’s best tracks with friends worldwide.”

Wipeout Omega Collection is a remaster of three previous games in the Wipeout series, Wipeout HD, Wipeout 2048, and Wip3out. The game has a futuristic racing theme with different modes, including Single Race, Campaign, and online multiplayer.

Gameplay involves racing against other players on anti-gravity tracks while using speed boosts to reach higher speeds. Your pilot will also be able to jump over obstacles or use weapons against other pilots if you wish.

The game was released by Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) in 2017 on Playstation 4. Still, you can also play it via some emulators like RPCS4 or RetroArch with varying success depending on your hardware configuration.

The Crew 2 is a racing video game developed by Ivory Tower and published by Ubisoft. It is the sequel to 2014’s The Crew. It was released worldwide on June 29, 2018, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Crew 2 features a persistent open world environment for free-roaming across a scaled-down recreation of the United States that includes urban cityscapes, suburbs, mountains, valleys, forests, and deserts, providing variety in terrain but has fewer locations than its predecessor, which spanned from New York City to Los Angeles (and Las Vegas). Players can compete in races through this environment or complete story missions to progress through the narrative; additionally, there are several side activities, including drone racing.
