Major new campaign mode headlines the game’s full launch following 100,000+ early access sales

COPENHAGEN, 4th September 2019 - Hit sandbox building block racer Trailmakers is launching on PC and Xbox One on September 18th 2019.

 

From developer Flashbulb Games (which includes veterans from Playdead, ustwo, CCP Games and Square Enix), the game has already reached over 100,000 sales and 1,000 positive reviews across Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Preview. 

 

The team have released a new release date announcement trailer to celebrate the announcement, which you can watch here.

 

In Trailmakers, players create their own dream machines out of colourful, physics-based blocks (everything from race cars to planes to giant robots), and then take them into races, epic PvP battles, or set out to explore a vast alien planet.

 

The centrepiece of the huge launch update will be an all-new main campaign mode, Stranded in Space, which will feature around 10-20 hours playtime spread across the most diverse map yet, with underwater and lava environments, floating islands, dangerous wildlife, and much more. 

 

“The community has created some absolutely amazing things so far,” says Mikkel Thorsted, Creative Director at Flashbulb Games. “We’ve had an autonomous car, block-based versions of Pong and Battleships, and a machine that built a monorail track. There have also been a ton of hydrofoils, ornithopters, railguns, and Boston Dynamics-esque walking robots. One player even built a three-stage rocket that turned into an orbiting Tesla by the end!”

 

Alongside the all new campaign, there are a multitude of modes for players to dive into, spread across numerous sandbox, racing and competitive multiplayer maps.

 

More multiplayer modes, as well as new skins and vehicle parts, are already in development and players can also share blueprints for any of their creations with their friends and the Trailmaker community. 

 

Trailmakers is currently available to play in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Danish, and Polish and costs $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.49 on Steam

 

Trailermakers is also available on the Humble Store.
