After nearly three years in Steam’s Early Access, tinyBuild’s SpeedRunners will launch on April 19 at PAX East.Several new features were revealed today via a press release, including:
- A huge Mario Kart-style single player campaign, with cups to beat and rivalries to manifest
- The Trail Shop, where players can purchase and sell special trails for their characters, in the same vein as what Valve has been doing with Counter Strike and DOTA 2
- A Twitch betting system, through which streamers can more heavily involve their players, who in turn will be able to directly affect the game with modifiers
- A new animated opening cinematic, new UI features, and Mac/Linux/SteamOS support
In a blog post earlier today, it was revealed that the title has sold over one million copies to date. Plans for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions were announced in June 2014, but a concrete release date for the consoles is still unknown.
