With the help of the Early Access community, Spanish Developer Ivanovich Games is compromised to keep polishing and adding features to Touring Karts at least during the next 3 months, but that period may be extended depending on the feedback received:
“As fans of F1 and the Mario Kart saga, we were missing an experience that united these two worlds taking advantage of all the possibilities that Virtual Reality can offer. We wanted to bring all the excitement and crazy fun of the kart-type arcade games into a universe where we always find new challenges and where we can compete with our friends. ”-Ivan Cascales, Founder and CEO at Ivanovich Games.
This is what players can expect from Touring Karts during the life of the product:
- Seamless Cross-platform Multiplayer between mobile (iOS & Android), PC (Steam, Oculus Store, VIVE Port) and consoles (PS4 and Nintendo Switch).
- New online tournaments and special events.
- More options to customize your character, team and cars.
