There are times when all you’ll want to do is nothing but grab your bike and hit the open trails, forgetting about life and carving a new path to glory. And with Lonely Mountains: Downhill launching on Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass, that opportunity comes about.
Launching right now on Xbox One, debuting in Xbox Game Pass for those who have a valid subscription in place, Lonely Mountains: Downhill will see you arriving at the top of a mountain, before grabbing two wheels and getting to the bottom as fast, and as safely, as you can.
Running with a price of £17.99 for those without Xbox Game Pass – seriously, if you don’t have it, get a subscription now – Lonely Mountains: Downhill will allow you the chance to work your way through a variety of scenarios, taking in dark dank forests, narrow trails and raging rivers, jumping, sliding, carving and grinding your way to glory.
With a number of routes available on multiple mountain sides, and a variety of challenges attached to each, how you decide to get to the bottom is entirely up to you. Sometimes you’ll need to take it carefully, completing the course with few crashes, whilst at other times it’s all about you against the clock, racing to the bottom and through checkpoints as fast as you can.
Multiple pathways are present, shortcuts are available, and a decent array of bike types and customised paint jobs are all in place. In fact, how you find your way to the bottom of the routes in Lonely Mountains: Downhill is totally up to you, with Thunderful Publishing giving you a number of options.
Perfect for speed-runners or those who wish to best their friends times on the global leaderboards, should a bit of downhill biking be something that appeals then getting over to the Xbox Store right now will sort you out with a download – and the chance to forget about real-life as you hurtle down the mountainside. The only question is, will you make the most of the Xbox Game Pass, or does this warrant an outright purchase? Let us know in the comments below.
Should you prefer to do your gaming somewhere other than on Xbox then you should also be finding Lonely Mountains hitting PS4 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch edition due to follow.
Just you and your bike – take it on a thrilling ride down an unspoiled mountain landscape. Make your way through thick forests, narrow trails and wild rivers. Race, jump, slide and try not to crash – all the way from the peak to the valley!
