A development team made up of racing game veterans is working on a 60-player battle royale karting game.
Developed by Sumo Leamington, the game will start with 60 players, who will take part in three-round eliminator events, “culminating in a high-stakes finale to crown the winner”.
It will consist of Stampede Races (which are standard karting races) and Stampede Battles (where players battle in power-up filled arenas).
“Racing games have been at the core of Sumo Digital since the company was founded 20 years ago, from Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast to the Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing series, and co-development on Forza Horizon 5,” development director Paul Hollywood said in a statement.
“Sumo Leamington is a new studio filled with veterans of racing game development. Our debut title, Stampede: Racing Royale, proudly adds to Sumo Digital’s heritage with an innovative new take on
the karting genre.”
Steam playtests will take place this summer, ahead of the game’s Early Access release.
