The action is high-paced, crazy and offers MORE then 6000 ability/upgrade/weapon/paintjob/vehicle combinations.

If you're lucky you might find yourself firing a flack cannon from a Lamborghini at 300 MPH."

There is a wide variety of weapons, vehicles and upgrades to choose from to increase your defensive and offensive abilities as well as speed and agility.
These can be purchased through a deep money and leveling system.
Winning a race get you the ultimate prize, but if you die you'll earn some money anyway to make the gamemode more balanced.


Progress: 100% with coding, 88% with maps, models and stuff like that - Gamemode is finished. Release: TBA
Beta: Tested, completed

The gamemode is essentially finished, and final touches are being added before a public test can be tested.

Well, the beta (December 26th) was a complete success, racking up some nice racing footage and having some fun. I got enough money from just loosing to get me a jet engine. With it I increase my chances of winning. Of course that's just one of extremely many tactics. We're all too low level to unlock awesome vehicles and weapons, so it all started with these normal jeep races without weapons. Later on we found out that the airhorn worked superbly;

The only bugs visible on the beta were that the player models in the vehicles somehow ended up far from their original vehicle.
