Hello arcade racers!
The last few weeks have been amazing, and we’ve been throwing out updates faster than ever in Total Arcade Racing. Most additions have been suggestions from the community which makes us super happy.
Since the last news post we’ve released 6 updates. Here are some of the highlights in the updates.
To test your skills as a Pro Arcade Racer we’ve added a new course where you race along the docks in a harbor. There is a pretty large risk that you’ll fall into the water but don’t worry, we’ve added a rescue feature that will pull your car out of the water again.
Achievements is a feature that we said would be delivered during the Early Access and now it’s been added to the game. We’d like more feedback in this area to answer questions like: how many achievements would you like, how hard should they be to unlock?
A new wacky local multiplayer mode, Car Hockey, has been added with support for 8 players. In Car Hockey you compete in two Teams, Red vs Blue, and it’s all about getting the puck into the goal using any means possible.
Keep the feedback coming either through the Steam forums or drop by our Discord Server to have a chat with us and the community.
