  • 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.
