has announced today that the PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap free update arrives tomorrow on PlayStation Network.
To quote: Yes, finally PixelJunk Racers 2nd Lap is coming to PSN and we've had a lot of fun fiddling with the original Racers to bring it up to date with the other titles in the PixelJunk series.
Instead of going back and just adding trophies we decided to go through and give it a difficulty overhaul – making the game far easier than it used to be (we used to make these games pretty tough back in the day eh).
It is still a pleasant challenge of course but not the insurmountable cliff face it used to be.
Let me be the first to say this, but PixelJunk Racers is *not* a racing game - it is more like a PixelJunk reaction-based party game based loosely on slot-car racing.
There are all kinds of different rules to play with, for example in one rule all you do is hold the trigger down to "puff up" your car, release the trigger and your car flies along the track like a balloon, the goal is to get as far as you can without hitting anything.
We support up to 7 controllers and it makes for a superb game to play with friends around....
