Introducing a brand new track, the Pirate Bay!

 
A challenging pirate obstacle course built among the stars. Race through a pirate village, sunken ships, and Kraken-infested wreckage. Watch out for destructible crates, cannon fire, and rickety hole-filled tracks. It's all hands on deck in the Pirate Bay when you're just moments away from walking the plank!!

 
  • Single-screen local and online multiplayer: Invite your friends and family to an action-packed competition, or queue up to rumble online!   
  • Choose your racer!  
    • Riku - The mystical bird 
    • Bert - The proud pig  
    • Pepper - The friendly corgi 
    • Ophelia - The sassy cat 
    • And more characters to be added after launch!
  • Three procedurally generated tracks: With procedurally generated levels, you’ll never have the same race twice! Fight your way through a robot-filled factory, an asteroid field, and a Space Pirate stronghold. Avoid magma pillars, asteroids, machinery, cannon fire, and the Kraken! Future additions to levels and more tracks on the way mean there’s always something new to look forward to!    
  • Unlock hundreds of new cosmetics: Hats, badges, eyewear, banners, custom suit designs, and more!
  • Season rewards and dynamic leveling: Gain experience each season and earn a host of rewards for your characters! 
  • Brawl your way through each track: Launch disks, toss bombs, blast players, into the air with the Shockpack, and inflate your competition with the Super-Sizer!
There's more to come in the next months!
