Rev Up Those Engines! Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks Roars into Open Alpha
lly been revealed as part of the Warhammer Skulls Showcase. This wild ride of a game is not just about racing; it’s about weapon-loaded vehicular mayhem set in the gloriously grim Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Caged Element and PLAION, the developers and publisher, couldn’t hide their excitement when announcing the game. And now, the free-to-play, class-based, multiplayer racer/shooter hybrid is playable in an Alpha Playtest on Steam starting today. So, what are you waiting for?
Dive into the action and bring your fantasies to life, manoeuvring scrappy vehicles and firing off bombastic weapons in a deadly Speedwaaagh (that’s Orkish for ‘let’s race and shoot things!’). You can pick from different classes of vehicles including damage, tank and support wagons, each with unique abilities tailored to your playstyle. Tear across diverse maps in a never-seen-before mix of combat racing and shooter genres.
In the Alpha phase, the game presents a select number of vehicles and levels, along with its hard-hitting combat racing conquest mode. Capture points, race for bigger scores, and witness the glorious mayhem that unfolds as teams put the pedal to the metal in their scrappy gas guzzlers.
The game’s features include 16-player matches, seven unique vehicles to choose from, and brilliantly decorated maps, ensuring no two matches ever end the same way. Thanks to the Unreal Engine 5, the visuals are snazzy, and the chaos is explosive. Trust me, it’s a Warhammer 40,000 fantasy come true.
Do you feel the need for more SPEED and DAKKA? You’re in luck! Join the Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks multiplayer racing-shooter mayhem from today by participating in the Alpha playtest on Steam. I must admit I’m really looking forward to giving this a go and I’ve signed up to the playtest, I’ve had a soft spot for Orks in Wagonz since Gorkamorka.
Warhammer 40,000: Speed Freeks is not just any ol’ vehicular combat game, this is high ork-tane, DIS IS DA KULT TO OF SPEED! WAAAAGH!
