Announced as part of the PC Gaming Show 2023, it marks the first game by Sumo Digital’s Leamington studio. Play tests are due this summer.

The main hook of the title, as you’ve probably ascertained by now, is battle-royal-style racing, in karts. This will be online, with up to 60 simultaneous players duking it out for supremacy.

The free-to-play title will launch into Steam’s Early Access programme later in 2023, with sign-ups now live for a series of summer playtests.

Vehicle customisation is said to be at the heart of the experience, de rigueur for a title of this ilk, and items can be unlocked during the upcoming series of limited-time events and trials.

The gameplay is focused on three-round eliminator events, mixing both races and battles, plus utilising a suite of weapons. These are set to be layered into a set of challenges, individual events and seasons.

“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,” said Paul Hollywood, Development Director at remote-first developers Sumo Leamington.

“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.”

Published by Secret Mode – think Turbo Golf Racing – after the initial PC launch, console versions of Stampede Racing Royale are also planned, although platforms and timing are yet to be confirmed.
