Registrations for the first round of playtests have been open since the game’s formal reveal in June, and the inaugural session will last for five days on PC between 27th-31st July 2023.
Stampede: Racing Royale is the first game by Sumo Digital’s Leamington studio and is an online battle royal-style knockout system kart racer.
Eight racing tracks and one battle area will be part of the initial feedback session, alongside 50 customisable items – more locations and options will be included in the final version.
The premise is to either race to the front of the pack, using powerups, to win a race, or reach the highest number of points in arena-based battles.
The sessions will be used testbed ahead of a PC (Steam) Early Access release later this year, which will be ahead of console versions.
