Inspired by classics like FlatOut, Trail Out is a fast-paced arcade racing game full of crashes, explosions, and destruction. Play through adrenaline-fueled game modes like standard races, destruction derbies, stunt driving, and an escape mode where a helicopter guns down anyone in last place.

Trail Out features 40 cars from various weight classes and eras, each of which can be turned into indistinguishable wrecks with the game’s physics engine. Trail Out also features multiplayer for up to 4 players via split screen and Steam’s Remote Play feature.
